Thank you. I thought it was a blob because well...it looks like a blob. But I think it's a D which makes sense since I have never worn narrow or wide shoes before.

I am tempted by the gray Long Branch, but as almost a strictly jeans boot.

FWIW, I ordered a pair last week after seeing them in person and I would agree with this assessment.

Just snagged a pair of lightly used Patriots in calf half size down from my Brannock off the 'bay. Hope they're not too snug.

Now here is a boot I wish they would bring back. Simple, elegant cap toe. If anyone has a 10 1/2 D they would like to sell... PM me.

Those are the Brantley.  Great looking boots.

It looks like you switched out the original laces for some thicker round ones?  When I saw the Aberdeen in person I was sort of turned off by the thin flat laces they come with.  The laces felt extremely cheap, as if they would break in no time.  Good looking pair you have!

Those are really nice. When did they discontinue them?

Seems as good a price as ever - usually around $200 during the Nordstrom sales but would be subject to tax. Not sure where you're located - you might have to pay tax anyways.

You're right, 218, and I happen to have a $75 amazon credit sitting around doing nothing so I went ahead and pulled the trigger. Can't wait for my 1st pair of AE's!

How do you know which shoes you can use the CYBRSHOE code with? Is there a way to tell if it will work without going all the way through the checkout process to that point? Thanks.

Way back in 1999.  So if you find some they are already vintaged!  By the way, I was inspired by your pictures of the brown Long Branch.  I picked some up from the Jeffersonville outlet on Black Friday for a whopping $195.00.  The SA even said that they are first quality (not sure why they were at the outlet if that's the case, but we will see).  They should be arriving today. biggrin.gif

Good question, I think they are about the nicest looking boot that AE ever made. They came in black - and a burgundy shell too, I think.

Select your size, check to make sure that the shoe is shipped and sold by Amazon, then see if there's a banner below the price advertising the promo. No banner = no discount, I believe.

I know that my question isn’t completely relevant in this thread, but this is really the only one I frequent here on SF, so I figured I’d post here as well.  I have a pair of Paul Stuart Stuart’s choice shoes which are crafted by Grenson to their Masterpiece standards.  It appears as if the sole of the shoes have some sort of soft, fabric-like top layer which is now wearing away.  Does anybody know how to describe this properly?  Are there any cobblers in Chicago, or anywhere for that matter, who can resole shoes to include this feature?  I plan on contacting the store I purchased them from as well, just wanted to see if anybody had thoughts on SF.

 

Thanks,

 

Jon

Pictures will get you in trouble!! nod[1].gif  Did you get the waxy brown or the dark brown?  Either is a great choice.  And $195??  That's way crazy!  I think I paid $270 when they were on sale last month.  I'm just not crazy about the grey ones.  Well, I guess they're okay but I think I'd find them not versatile enough.  The Long Branches are a great boot to just kick about in.  Most of my boots have leather soles so these are great when the weather's not so good.  Hope you really enjoy them.

 

I would jump on those Brantley's if they were available today.

When you say sole do you mean the bottom of the shoe or the insole on the inside of the shoe?
