dayum dude...  I thought I was being lustful whilst planning on buying my second pair in a few months...  (i'm considering giving up eating out so I can put the money saved from that towards buying shoes).  I will say this though, it's super hard to resist!  I've been hooked on AE shoes ever since the smell of my first pair hit me upon opening the box for the first time.

I don't know about the smell!  I think maybe it's because my father is a carpenter.  He came home every day smelling like cabinet finish which is not so different from the smell of the shoes...  The smell reminds me even more of my father now that they have taken on the cedar smell to go with the smell of the shoes finish...  Jeez, just realized it sounds like i'm talking about my dead father... He's very much alive and kicking!

Balmorals are always more formal than bluchers. Black is the most formal of colours fyi

Very surprised that people on this forum/thread know what a tuk-tuk is

i googled it. haha

Agree with your thoughts on this.

+1, well said

For those who have Dalton's, I'm really close to pulling the trigger on some walnut ones. Can anyone tell me how high they are? By that I mean measurement from floor or arch to the top of the boot.

From the bottom of the heel to the top of the quarter = 7" exactly.

Fixin' to take a family photo soon

Thanks.

I've gotten some great deals on this thread by you and other members giving each other a "heads up" of retailers having AEs on sale. Remember that Jos A Bank deal on their Park Aves? Went to a long lunch and missed that one baldy[1].gif

BTW, your second link didn't work. Thanks, again.

Thanks so much for the heads up.

 

Here is the sale link to AE:
