My first reaction was "return".  But since this is a cappuccino MTO, you are definitely right about the risk of not getting it.  If you really like the color, ask for a price adjustment at a minimum.  If you can live with the regular brown as fall back, return it.

:worship:  Great job.

 

My Cappucino Lexington MTO has come-in as well.  Unfortunately, I'm on vacation.  Will have to wait until next week to see them.  It's kinda ironic because Allison had them shipped overnight last Friday, which seems like what she did for the others who got their MTOs as well.  And I found out that she had to drive my shoes off an AE store to have it shipped because they missed the shipping cut-off in the Factory.  I'm pretty sure she did the same thing with the others.  We are sooo lucky to have her.

QFT. She went above and beyond and then some to make sure everyone possible had their MTOs by Christmas -- that's kind of a big deal.

Not sure I want to have that much money vested in lug sole boots right now, but they certainly do not disappoint:

10E


I posted these in the buy & sell forum this morning for $300. I'm a little bit indifferent about keepin them or not. If they sell good because I already spent too much money on shoes this year, if they won't sell then I'll have another bad weather boot.

I on the other hand haven't been having the same luck.

I am at 10 weeks, because the first round failed inspection ~4 weeks ago.

That being said, she has been very helpful when you can get hold of her.

I should have more details to share, but it looks to be around 33% OFF the regular price.  If so, then my next purchase will be the Daltons for around $265.00 (regular $395.00), which comes with the Nordstrom's fabulous "satisfaction" guarantee and free shipping both ways - PLUS extra Rewards Points.

Any idea of what other AEs will be on sale?

They still look nice and from these photos the blemishes are pretty hard to see. The cappuccino color is really nice. Shame they aren't currently stocking it.

Feel free to let me know of any additions or corrections and I can try to keep it up-to-date. Also, if you know which last a given RL model is on, let me know and I'll add it. I'm not positive about the links with question marks; please let me know if you can confirm.

First day of cleaning up and breaking in my burgundy cordovan Kenilworth. These are definitely the cadillacs of my shoe collection, between the natural beauty of the shell and the comfort of the independence lining. I plan on wearing these quite often.

Sweet shoes man!

Looking for some advice to narrow down which shoe to get. I've narrowed it down to the park ave (walnut), strand (walnut), and Elgin (light brown) which I plan on wearing mostly with this suit:

Otherwise, I might wear it from time to time in business casual at work, thanks!
