Do they all have the same sales or is it worth getting on the mailing list for several locations?


all the outlets go off the same inventory/stock list

With the fifth film adaptation of The Great Gatsby in theaters now, we may see some very nice shoes and attire come out later this year - as fans enjoy the production styles, and also revisit the original Robert Redford portrayal.  Film can lead to styles in the stores.

BB's usually have a padded insole and sometimes the soles are also different. For example, on the BB Strands the sole is a rubber/leather combo. There are much more knowledgeable people here who can add more but hopefully this is a decent start.

I'm still wearing mine around the house - breaking them in...I haven't worn them out yet. They're making their maiden voyage next week. I did buy the Alden Leather Defender to put on them. That goes on cloudy and polishes up great. I picked some up in San Fran at the Alden store...which is a must stop if you're in town. It's literally a block away from the AE store too.

I made it to that Alden store last summer. I was hoping to try on a few models and perhaps even make a purchase, but they had very little in my size. Should have picked up some Leather Defender though, as I can't find many places to order it. They have it at JCrew, but the $9 shipping is a bit steep. It's been raining all week so I could have used it.

I purchased the black calf PA for BB during the last sale. It has the Poron insole like it seems most of the AE for BB shoes do. It fits however due to the Poron insole my foot sits higher in the footbed and the gap at the laces is huge compared to my other shoes in the same size and last. Anyone else experience this and have you tried sizing up a half size in length and did it work? With my Bayfields I ended up going up a half size because of the Poron insole but not so sure that would work in the shoes?

I have the same issue with the BB Elgins I bought. The thicker insole makes my feet sit higher in the shoe, hence it doesn't fit as well overall as my other regular AEs. There's more slippage at the heel unless I tie the shoelaces super tight. I've tried to remedy this by buying the AE waxed laces, which grip better over the course of the day. (The BB Elgins came with fairly cheap laces that loosened quite easily.) I hope this fixes the issue. Didn't consider changing sizes or width since the size I got is the size that fits best.

I've tried looking through just about every catalog here: http://issuu.com/allenedmonds and I can't find a thing. It looks like someone just forgot to put the broguing on a Strand.

Would love to see those Daltons in Walnut. I am sure they will look amazing.

Hi Guys,

 

As a frequent European follower of this thread, I am happy to announce that I will be in the US the coming 4 weeks! This means it's a great opportunity to buy some AE, especially with the upcoming seconds sale.

 

Atm I have a pair of AE Walnut Strands in 8.5E for me waiting in NY. I fit them in Brussels, Belgium, and than ordered online and let them ship to a friend in NYC.

 

However, I would like to add to my AE collection the following:

McAllister Merlot: 8.5E

Dalton Chocolate Calf: 9D

Neumok Tan Suede: 9D

 

What do you think about the proposed sizes, given my Strand 8.5E?

 

Thanks a lot!

Cheers
