post #31771 of 53286

Anyone have a suggestion on care for the Long Branch Wingtip Boots in the dark brown grain leather?  The AE website recommends conditioner and dark brown shoe polish.  The SA said no polish, the grain leather would be maintained with damp cloth, leather lotion, saddle soap. Do I polish these or not?

 

Got hooked on the walnut strand, picked up the park avenue, now this is my first casual shoe.  Unless someone knows a cure there will be more orders to come.  Thanks style forum for the tip on the Amazon extra 20% discount!

Here's my MTO Chili Cliftons with Independence sole

 

 

 

Great color, I love my Chili McAllisters. Also, the wheeled edges are great. I regret not getting them on my latest MTO.

Anyone know if the Townley can be made as an MTO? Haven't seen anyone talk about them, but they are a great looking shoe.

 

What are your thoughts?

In for another pound of flesh....

Thanks to whomever posted the PSA about the Banff slippers being available at a steep discount off of list. Called my local AE store and placed an order for them (same size as my Patriot loafers). I think they're expensive for slippers but then again I'm not sure what to expect build wise until they arrive.

Also ordered some cordovan cream from my incoming Jeffersons, Patriots, and Daltons. Since AE's cream is essentially a dye cream, what is a good mainline product to use to bring out the shine in cordovan?

And just to pass along a good deal that I cashed in on today, picked up three pair of shoe trees from JAB for only $25! Not too shabby.

Only bit of bad news is is that I found out that the uppers for my webgem Patriots (ordered on 09/27) are still in production and likely wont ship for another week or two.

I have a pair and they're a fairly recent shoe. I'm sure they could make them for you. I was lucky to get in on a $299 FIRST QUALITY from the Cleveland AE store that was posted right here on SF!

Those would look awesome in pretty much any shell cordovan or calf in any color IMO.

Thanks, I appreciate the insight. How do they size compared to the 5 last?

post #31777 of 53286
The seem to fit a little bit bigger than my Park Aves...but certainly not enough to go up a size from your normal PA size.

What are your thoughts on the Toasted Natural Edge (Neumok) vs the Light Brown Transparent Edge for a pair of Chili Strands? I know there isn't that much of a difference, but do you think it would be to light?

 

Thanks,

I think if you are going for a more casual shoe than the Toasted Natural is the way to go. With the model you are going with, I would stick with the light brown. I have it on my chili McAllisters and it turned out great.

Tampa,do you have a high shine on your Townleys? If so , what did you use? Thanks
post #31782 of 53286
Anyone else have an opinion? Mine are not real shiny thanks
post #31783 of 53286
For those who have ordered from amazon, do you notice any difference in quality or should I feel ok ordering from them with the 20% off?

[Still catching up on from being 6 weeks behind on this thread, but wanted to chime in on this...]

I wore mine this weekend and realized how disappointingly dull they are. Tonight or later this week I'm going to try to spend a lot of time stripping the factory finishing to see if I can't get down to the shell. I don't have Saphir Reno'Mat, but I'm going to try to git it down with AE Conditioner/Cleaner if possible.

I have used Reno a lot they are better but still not what u want as far as shine
