If AE doesn't come out with a bourbon belt, I think the next best option is to take your shoes to a local Nordstrom and find a matching belt.  Nordstrom has a nice selection of high quality leather belts.

That's a good recommendation, thanks.

Apparently  2 orders were placed for the same pair and so when when my

order was placed their system was not updated yet.  They said they had to

do more research and would call me back, since my original rep was off today.

There was only 1 pair left showing up in their system. 

 

I'm afraid they might refund me my $ since they might not have another pair

in my size and not have a a new pair of boots.

 

Let them know how "deflated" you are.  They may very well give you a pair of firsts for the seconds sales price to make up for this mistake.

Even with a strong Canadian dollar, I find that shipping charges from U.S. retailers are often prohibitive.

Rego Bespoke (main floor of the Exchange Tower) had a good AE deal a couple of weeks ago; not sure if it's still on or not. They were offering to match all discount prices on the AE website but waive any shipping costs.

Also, I should point out that Novelty has a very good reputation for shoe repairs. I had them put topys on my Park Avenues, and to my untrained eye, they appeared to do an excellent job.

Thanks. I'm in Mississauga though, do you know any other places that carry Collonil closer to me?

Wow I hope Rego Bespoke does that again this year for the next sale of AE. What models do they carry? Can definitely make a trip to downtown for that! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I keep seeing people post about this shoebank.  Can someone please let me know what this is?  I ordered a pair of Cronmok's last Monday but they had to be made so they won't ship until the end of this week.  What are the discounts on seconds at the shoebank?  If the prices are really good, I might grab a pair of Westchesters or McGraws.

And while you're answering adsmith4, can you comment on your experience with seconds? What's the smallest defect you've found? The biggest? If it's too bad, can you return them?

Search up Allen Edmonds Shoe Bank on Google their number should be there. You can email them too. shoebank@allenedmonds.com I think.

So far I have two shoes from them. On one of them I cannot tell anything wrong. The other I believe has a slight scuff on the cap toe but I haven't polished yet so might go away.

By all means, they should eventually come out with a basic wide belt in bourbon, but you might have to wait. Although there is always the option of ordering the belt special makeup, but it would mean retail price + $15.

I did this for a navy basic wide belt, since I did not see them coming out with one soon, but wanted something to use with my navy Moras.

After reading the reviews of the Wide Basic belt, and comparing with the perfed Manistee, I hoping to hold out for the latter in bourbon. Granted it's a little loud, but so are heavily-brogued medallion cap toes.

 

Edit: Embedded links sure don't show up well with this stylesheet.

I have a manistee belt in burgundy and it's the best belt I've ever owned.

I can attest to Novelty's Topy-ing abilities. Had em put Topys on a pair of Alfred Sargents and they did a really great job. Can't quite remember the price but it was somewhere in the ballpark of $30-35, which isn't too bad! (at least, by Canadian standards smile.gif)

I thought I would also share some experience with a shoe care product for my AEs and other shoes. Well known around these boards, but Saphir Renovateur works....SO AMAZINGLY. I had read so many good things about it and was skeptical, but sweet jesus the product is incredible. Applied a thin layer of it on all of my AEs and then re-bulled the cap and OH MY what a difference in the mirror shine it made. Furthermore, I applied it to a scuffed pair of CXL bayfields (sorry i should've taken pics) that hadnt been treated at all in 8 months, and they look like new. Finally, after going to Oktoberfest this last weekend in my beeswax clark's DB, I woke up to find them completely beer stained and scuffed, but a quick application of Renovateur makes them look as good as new. Hell, BETTER than new, since they have some character to them from creasing smile.gif

Hi all, I just have a general question about shoe care. I have a pair of dark brown McTavish. What shoe care from AE I should be applied to protect the leather and keep it as new as possible? And how often should I apply those shoe care? 1 month ? 2 month? I got a bottle of condition cleaner (in natural color) and leather lotion. But i have never applied any shoe care on my leather shoes before. Do I get the right color condition cleaner?

It tells you on their website:

http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF4035_1_40000000001_-1

Conditioner cleaner only comes in clear, it is not colored.

Clean when they get dirty or perhaps every 7 wears.
