Sorry, the boots aren't AE so I wanted to respect the fidelity if the thread.
The boots are pretty versatile and work well with my grey and blues well. Because of the colourway, I think they also look fine on medium (but not too light) suits.
Thanks, good to know!
I am considering getting these, but am slightly turned off by their super-casual nature. I would want to wear them with sportcoats, and possibly a suit. Based on this picture, I think it would work.
I see you don't have the stock green laces. Did the shoes come with dark brown lcaes as well, or did you purchase those separately?
Wait a minute, I'm confused, isn't this the ebay sale that was supposedly posted by AngelicBoris? If this is a different guy, then once again, where did he even get the shoes from? Is this some AE insider that isn't supposed to be selling prototypes? I agree with everyone's comments that he can't reasonably expect people to not discuss sale ads on here. There's no way to control that, and there isn't anything wrong with it.
Greetings, my request not to put my ads within this forum was only to prevent people from saying that I am trying to advertise my sales, thats all, plane and simple. It has nothing to do with "prototypes" yadda yadda yadda. I just do not want to think I am directing people to my ads by posting in a forum. I visit this site and use this site quite frequently, I just do not post. The only reason I posted was because I was shocked to see my Ebay auction in the Allen Edmonds appreciation pages. But I agree, it has given me a bump in sales, so thank you for whoever posted it and I guess that means I can continue to post my sales in this thread?
AE Vernon. Second voyage. I ordered 4 sizes from Amazon to see which one worked best and spent a couple of weeks trying them on indoors before deciding on the 8.5D. Unfortunately, due to the long wait before getting to wear them outside, I forgot to clean/condition them prior. It also rained (when it wasn't supposed to) that day and now I have some rather excessive creasing that I don't have on my other AE shoes (Clifton, Strand, Hale)
I have since clean/conditioned and polished them and think they look mighty nice, despite the creases.
