Call them. They should be able to fix this for you manually.

1. Walnut Strand

2. Brown Fifth Avenue

3. Burgundy Sanford 

This said though, you will only have cap-toes in your rotation. Honestly, I'd probably swap Fifth Avenue for a pair of Short- or Long Wing Bluchers. 

 

Thanks for the input! Any reason you say the bolded? Are they really that much lower on the quality totem pole?

 

Yeah, I know what you're thinking. Honestly I feel like I need to keep black plain oxfords sort of by default, but I'd really rather have a pair of brown wingtips, with Strands being the next best alternative. I wear dress shoes to work 5 days a week (and they'll be worn sometimes on weekends with jeans or chinos, which is another plus for the Strands), but I rarely if ever need to wear a black suit. They [black cap-toes] are just very convenient to have around and I don't have a single pair.

 

If I return the mags, I might just swap the Park Aves anyways and pick up a cheap pair of rubber soled black cap toes as a backup shoe/for wet days.

Thanks for the tip. I signed up and received my coupon over 30 days ago though so it's expired and I'll pass. Shouldn't be spending right now anyway.

Instead of brown wingtips I'd recommend the McAllisters in Merlot. IMO the best color choices to begin with would be,

PA - Black

FA - Brown

McAllister - Merlot

Strand - Walnut

Exactly my thoughts, these would be the perfect combination of the 4 evergreen "timeless classics" AE styles

It's probably the country's smallest AE store in the same building as the Alden store, I believe.

I lost a long PM to you last night. Will try and re-type later today

If you don't mind sharing, please clue me in as well. Thanks!

When you apply the chili edge dressing, use a clean rag and wipe of the excess. If you do not you will get a shiny look on the dressing when it dries. I apply it and quickly wipe it off. Looks great.

I believe you're thinking of the one on 44th and Madison. The one on 43rd is between 5th and 6th and is larger.

Breaking in new Kenilworths today. Not a bad score for under 2 bills.

Cant wait until my burgundy shell version is finished...

You're right. I was thinking of the 44th and Madison.

New Webgems are up.  A mixture of holiday-themed and golf shoes.  Not a big fan of this release.

I really like that dark blue one. I just wore my blue Neumoks for the first time last week, but had I seen this first I would have returned them for this.
