What do you guys think about the burgandy burnish? Seems like something you could pull off with a charcoal suit as well as the colors i mentioned above. Can anyone post a real life picture? having trouble judging the ones from AE/nordstrom websites

Or should I just sack up for the walnut and know I will have them for 3-5 years if I take good care of them?

I recently picked up a pair of Strands in walnut and they're gorgeous. I've been able to wear them with lighter grey trousers and different earth-tones (shades of brown/tan mainly) in addition to the colors you mentioned (navy, olive).

I Picked up a pair of the Fairfax in Walnut at a Nordstrom Rack. Similar shoe but it is a 360 welt. I wonder how long they will keep doing the 270's?

Provided that the demand persists it will continue a long long time to come. Welcome to Styleforum.

Sizing suggestions for Bayfield.

I'm a 8.5 in Macneils.

I'd suggest you try to take a look in person. I'm a 8D in PA And 5th Aves, went with a 8D Bayfield. But the boot looks really bulgy and chunky to me, almost like a work boot. I had to return them.

I am finished staring at my new AEs and going to wear them for the first time this week. Do you guys recommend scuffing up the soles a little at first or just letting them get roughed up from regular use?

just wear them. only takes a few minute walk on concrete to get them scuffed.

if you are only going to walk on carpet, i suggest you be careful, or scuff them first.

Got an email today that the Sanford is being brought back and available now. Pricing is the standard $325, though they are starting the reintroduction price of $279. For those who are unaware, as I was, it is on the 7 last.

Hello all. I have an odd issue. I just received a pair of brown fifth avenues in size 6.5E. I noticed that they are significantly wider than my black park ave and walnut mcallisters in the exact same size. For example, the laces close all the way on this pair and the right shoe in particular is very roomy (some heel slippage).

What could account for this? Is there any way to fix it?

Nordstrom, with it's half-yearly sale, has 33% off the Cliftons. http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/allen-ed...esultback=4549 Is this a good buy?

I have a very nice pair of vintage burgundy Boulevards (c1980s?) which have a problem. Like a modern C&J hand grade they have a full leather sole.

Unfortunately it had hardened on the edges under the instep and has curled ever so slightly making the shoes (which are otherwise my fit 10.5E) very uncomfortable/impossible to wear.

Would an AE recraft solve the problem as my cobbler says he can't replace the inner sole?

There's some helpful information in this thread. Good luck!

They are supposed to be sleeker. AE is one of the few companies that do 360 degree Goodyear welts. To some, this makes AE appear blobby.
