I know many here ordered the Amsterdam. Can someone post pics of them being worn in the wild?

Keeping with this topic, does the same go for a site like Zappos.com where you buy the shoes new and at full price? I ask out of mere curiosity because I just returned my Navy Neumoks back to Zappos because a lot of seams were coming undone on the right shoe and for an AE shoe, I just couldn't accept that, a lesser brand maybe.

Could I have just skipped doing the return with Zappos and done the return with AE? I already returned them, but for future reference it would be helpful (I used Zappos because they accept PayPal.)

 

One good thing came out of it was Zappos gave me a 75$ coupon for my next purchase, can't go wrong with that.

Perhaps someone was referring to AE's recrafting service?

 

Also, a question for the field. Does anyone have a recommendation for an alternative to the Clifton that would look good in a burgandy or dark brown? I do like the 5th Avenue, but I think that the blucher style would probably work better based on my typical wardrobe.

It wasn't a promo code.  Amazon had reduced a bunch of the AE shoes themselves to 20% below normal.  So when you load the page with the shoes, the price listed was already $268 or whatever. Then you add a 20% promo code.

 

The discount applied to both colors of Vernons, so that even without a promo code they would've been $268 each.  The 20% promo code applies to the entire purchase, and then you can indeed use a gift card on top of that.

What don't you like about the clifton? If it's availability, Nordstrom has them and so does the ShoeBank. My Burgundy Cliftons are one of my favorites!

What is this ShoeBank everyone is talking about? Is this a site you can order online from, because I'm not able to find it.

My correct sizing for AE strands is 7.5 EEE and on Fifth ST boots 8 D. How far am I from 8.5 B ?
I have AE strands in 8EEE - which fits really loose(a little bit too long on the toe box and a bit way too much space around the toe). I wear 2 insoles and fits perfect . So I am about 7.5 EEE in AE strands.
I have AE Fifth ST boots. I have them in size 8.5D. They are a bit too long a a bit too loose. MY perfect size on them would've been 8D

I have received my AE Grayson today. They are US 8.5B. Lucky they fit icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif! Just a bit sung around the toe area. But Hopefully stretch over time.
Oh also the shoes looks better with the narrow toe. Much sleeker .

My issue wasn't that I don't like the Clifton's; quite the opposite. It was that the shoe bank didn't have any in my size in burgundy. I have since identified that a SFer has some for sale. But now i'm waffling on whether walnut or burgundy would be a better choice... Decisions decisions!

All webgems, or just the current patent leather ones?  There have been some fantastic webgems in the past, many of which have made it into regular production due to their popularity.  I can think of many shell cordovan webgems that have been quite popular.  Many of the webgems are way to fashion forward for my taste, and it is obviously the area that AE managment allows their design team to go a bit nuts sometimes, but I consider them on a case by case basis since there have been some great ones sprinkled in from time to time.

I may be wrong, since I am not speaking from experience, but I seriously doubt AE would take back a shoe that you didn't purchase from them.  The way most manufacterers work is they sell their product to authorized dealers, who in turn sell them to you.  If the authorized dealer recieves stock from the manufacterer that is defective, it is up to them to return them to the factory.  If you recieve a defective product, you would have to return them the the dealer you bought them from (who may in turn be able to return them to the factory if the feel it is worth it).  I would imagine AE would tell you to send them back to Zappos.  Depending upon the issue, AE may offer to charge a fee to repair damage, but that wouldn't be in your best interest if you recieved them in damaged condition.  All this said, I have also learned not to underestimate AE's customer service, so they may surprise you! thumbs-up.gif
