post #23881 of 49555

Thanks guys - when looking online I have only been able to find 9.5D and 10 D so my concern as a half size and EEE is that I would have to be in the 10D range in order for the shoes to have a shot at working for me.

 

Since I own the AE Bel Air in walnut I have been leaning to the Sanderson in brown to fill a hole in my current line up, but I am not opposed to the tan if they are great shoes.

You have some nice shoes there. I have a pair of older Cambridges that have aged nicely with time. I am not nearly as big of a fan of the new AE Burgundy shell color. It almost looks like a cooked lobster to me. Nothing like Alden's eggplant Color 8...

I got to say that the Patriot brown is rather splendid.

Thanks. That's too blunt and rounded at the front end too. AE perhaps is not for me. I'll stick to the Europeans smile.gif

The entire rough collection isn't made of Dublin.  Dublin was one of the predominant leathers used when the Rough Collection initially launched in 2011, but since then it has branched out into other leather sources.  I don't pretend to know what they are.  Allen Edmonds won't say what all of them are, but looking at many of them in person will show that they are made of different types of leathers.  The Neumok and the Sedona are definitely not Dublin.  The Tan Finch, Natural Dornoch, Natural and Cognac McTavish, Cognac Ridgeway, and Cognac Rapid City certainly are (as well as the Tan Nashua Tassel Loafer, which isn't part of the Rough Collection).  The Elgin and Stewart were made from the same leather, and they have a decidedly different finish than Dublin.

I gave them both a good brushing, some AE cream polish and a bit of wax on the toes and heel counters.

I don't think you will be disappointed. 

 

All my best,

Bought my Long Branches 2 weeks ago, and the store just credited me back the difference between what I paid and the new Clearance price ($103 savings)

Strange that this would happen. I've usually been pretty pleased with how true to life the pictures that Hitch and Post has on their eBay listings, but I agree that the pictures are probably skewed by the lighting in these pictures.

I noticed after ordering them that the soles are different so it made me wonder whether there are other differences.  Also, are these eligible for AE refurbishment?

 

Read through these posts and see if they help regarding the differences between the BB branded AE's and the regular production AE's.

The answer to all of your other questions is yes.  They are made on the same lasts, they will recraft them, you can use whatever brown polish you like, and you can use AE's cedar shoe trees.

Thank you, I like the "old" burgundy for the less formal shoes, new burgundy is very nice for more formal shoes.  You are right, it's not the same as #8 but at least the pair I have has nice coloration.

They look great!

Do these minor defects warrant a return for a different pair?

 

 

 

 

Also, on the toe of the other foot.  I think the shoe shine guy can take this one out though.

Long Branch brown $199 - Brown Waxy
Park Avenue $199 - Granite Grey 

 

The Park Avenues may very well be on sale very soon as "firsts" for an extra $29 approximate.

 

The Long Branch Boots, which I just bought, are on sale at AE as firsts for an extra $48 (around $247)

 

Thanks for keeping us all updated, Fabian.

Thanks for this David! Much appreciated. I'll keep lurking and waiting for my precious Delray's to go on sale. One day.. one day.

Black Park Avenues and Walnut Strands are the only two constants for every Anniversary sale.  Got mine for $199 each two years ago, but sounds like Nordstrom is raising their usual sale prices if they will now be $228 each.

AE puts Delrays on sale every Fall somewhere in the range of $220-240.
