Just an FYI, AE has more of their new Spring 2013 styles up.
So far my disappointment with the new offerings continues. So far they seem to be emphasizing the cheap ae by Allen Edmonds, the Rough Collection (which has taken a turn for the worse in my opinion) and the orthotic line this year. The Franciscan isn't too bad, but I'm just not a Monk wearer myself. I've really been hoping for some new shoes that could fall into the Timeless Classics category, that can be worn with suits. I guess if you need orthotics, there is cause to be excited. Hopefully there is still hope for the regular high quality offerings.
