You mean like these:

And while in whiskey cordovan rather than #8 cordovan, how about these gunboats?

Although Los Angeles County is the most populous county in the United States, there are no Allen-Edmonds stores.  The nearest Allen-Edmonds store is in Orange County.  Some Nordstrom stores in Los Angeles County stock a around half a dozen different styles of Allen-Edmonds shoes in a very limited range of sizes.

For the poster that asked earlier, my cobbler charges around $25 for the topys.

 

Yup, will keep you guys posted. Will post a proper comparison probably in the next few months. And yes, a topy/vibram would cost about $20 to install, while a sole upgrade is $50 at AE. However, some AE models/colors (like the PA, Strand, McAllister) come with the tap soles pre-installed at no additional cost.

Where in LA county do you live? I grew up in the San Fernando Valley before moving to NYC 5 years ago.

I wonder if you can go through Allison and the MTO offer and get tap soles put on for free.

Anyone try this? I know putting them on a MTO is no extra charge. But haven't tried it with a basic shoe.

Has anyone purchased any of the brown shell webgems yet? I'm thinking hard about the Jeffersons. They would make a nice brown dress shoe for me to wear with suits.

Hey guys,

I know this information is buried in this thread someplace, but I can't find the info for the AE MTO program.  How do we go about placing an order?  Thanks for your time.

West Los Angeles.  I've lived here since I was born, way back when Harry S. Truman was President.  My great grandfather came to Los Angeles from Elmira NY in 1855.

Oddly enough, since I still wear the clothes that I got at Brooks Brothers in the 60's and 70's, people keep asking me where I'm from, even though they're always the ones that have come here from elsewhere.  It's the people who have come here from elsewhere who are wearing the ball caps and tee shirts, rather than jackets and ties, in restaurants that once didn't allow people not wearing jackets and ties in.

I wish they'd all go back where the came from or that restaurants would go back to requiring jackets and ties.

On this Labor Day (Labour for our Canadian buddies) it sure is nice to pause and be thankful for all the awesome workers who make these Allen Edmonds shoes.

I know I'm proud to slip my foot into something made in America every morning.

Agreed. I am very glad there is an American-made shoe option still out there.

I hope the AE folks are reading this and will pass on our appreciation for all they do right here in the USA.

And I also want to send out my appreciation for all the workers in the USA that make this country great. Thank goodness we have a lot of great American-made things to go along with our shoes!

Very nice store...just don't go on hot day. Their A/C hasn't worked all summer they told me. Hot as heck in there. Wow. Dunno how the workers can put up with that.

 

Is that the store that's across the street from the Brooks Brothers flagship store and just around the corner from the Alden Madison store? I went there in july and the staff was really nice and helpful. I don't remember the SA's name, but she was young and had brown hair, she was very helpful. I went to the other Madison store and I didn't feel welcome at all. The SA's very not really interested in helping me and one of them actually answered a phone call while I was speaking with him, I found it quite rude and just went back to the other store.

 

Edit:

I place an order for the Brown Bayfields and shell Daltons yesterday with shoe trees it totalled at $655, not too bad!

Now to wait for a brown suede!

 

Does anyone know if this is happening, or would the best bet be to try a custom order?
