Allen Edmonds Appreciation Thread - Page 1604

post #24046 of 53435
So I'm looking to invest in a few premium quality dress belts. Premium to me means the belt can last 10 years and without tearing, cracking, or discoloring. My research online has told me that full grain leather is ideal for durability. My question to those of you who would know are AE belts full grain? I know they are made of calfskin but is it full grain calfskin? Will their belts truly last?

I have them in cordovan, so not exactly the same, but I noticed tightness at first as well.  I hesitate to say that they stretch, but I think the fact that they are unstructured allows them to form around your foot, making them more comfortable over time.

Yes - or you can get the AE polish in a tin, in burgundy color.  Seems very similar to Kiwi, which I also use.

Same here! Let's tell 'me to bring it back.

From earlier talk of strands here's a pic of mine in the wild.

Do you guys think a cobbler can repair this? Or would it be better to get them recrafted? These are seconds
post #24057 of 53435

Fabian - I would imagine that, unless you purchased those seconds at a substantially reduced rate or they are 'hard to find' shoes, the cost of the repair + the costs of the seconds would at least put you in the ballpark of buying firsts or a different pair of seconds.  I wouldn't accept those - that hole in the leather wouldn't stand up for 20-30 years of wear.

Neither a cobbler or AE will be able to repair that. Don't waste your money.

Wise choice. Keep your line in the water and something will bite, soon.
