They had just about every shell shoe available in a second for this price.

 

This was the Cleveland store or the shoebank, or where?

Thanks in advance.

Or if you prefer, lower the pants cuff and they look like an Oxford.

Clearly AE would have been talking about it at the time (or now) via their press releases, if they were proud of it.

Let me be clear, I'm not in disagreement with what you are doing, just how sneaky you are about it. Although you have stated you are proud of what you are doing, it doesn't sound like this is the case since you mostly choose to hide this part of what you are doing everywhere on the website. 

I think you should read his CEO blog on the AE website all the way back to April 8, 2010 where he proudly talks about the DR facility.  To your original point about why didn't he release press about the DR facility in 2007, I am not sure how he could have done that since he became an employee of AE in late 2008.

I really wanted the original look and was worried that the Chili was going to be too dark. However, I felt like the natural wasn't going to do much so I bit the bullet and went with the Chili after looking at many walnut shoes in the store. I am pretty happy with the final result. You can really see the difference between the raw and Chili version but I think it works on the 5th which is a dressier shoe than say a more casual shoe. I really love the natural look on the Elgin for example but to me that shoe wouldn't work well in a dressier situation.

not sure why you are posting the same thing again but my response is above:

I can't answer your sizing question, but the Jeffersonville outlet indicated that there is only size 6 and 6.5 left of the cordovan Townley.  SF cleaned them out :)  Wish I would have jumped on it earlier.

zchen, Thank you, that is exactly the information I was looking for. smile.gif

Thanks for taking the time to respond. Based on your feedback I feel more than confident 11.5 D will fit the bill (and my feet). If the Dundees fit in between my Barrie lasted shoes and my Indys they should be perfect. Thanks again.

I found the Dundee to be roomier than the other 1 lasted shoes I own and feel more like my Indy boots (Truebalance last 8.5D). It's not so roomy that I would size down on the Dundee, but it is clearly roomier than the other 1 lasted shoes I have (Bradley, Hamptons, Wilbert). The 1 lasted shoes feel very slightly roomier than my Barrie lasted shoes, which fits my feet pretty closely without being tight anywhere. So, I think you should probably be safe with Dundees in size 11.5D since you indicated that you could use a little bit more room in your 11D Barrie lasted shoes.

Anyone know what Color and Style this great looking shoe is?

That is a storm welt, no?  I have the same on my Florsheim Royal Imperials.  Perhaps someone else can chime in with more details.
