The shoe has some slight wrinkling on the side of the right shoe, nothing I can't live with. Very satisfied with this purchase and I think these will see a lot of use over the years.

 

 

 

These look waaaay better than the 8.5's I was sent a few weeks ago. Enjoy!!

Those are awesome.  Those wrinkles will probably work themselves out over the long run.  Enjoy them - you got a sweet deal.

I don't know if I can call from my phone. Also I'm in Mexico City, I guess that would be expensive. :(

Don't want to speculate anything but i feel like the leather was much superior than the AE model.  My Fifth Aves don't crease as much as the Strands or Park Aves that I have, I wonder if they have better lining.
Here is a shot of them with about 20 wears.


Looking good brother

Beautiful! I ordered the same from shoe bank in 9D! I am very excited now. I ordered on Monday, but haven't heard anything from them. How long did yours take to ship out? Also, are you going to wear these with suits?

Ordered and payment processed on Friday, shipping confirmation on Monday and arrived today. I think I will be wearing mostly with chinos.

My first pair or cordovan shoes! Does the left shoe look more pointy? I think that might be the defect.

I can't even tell, but if that's the difference between $299 and 599 shoes, I'll take something so minuscule all day,

I don't see anything wrong with it based on the picture.  If these are seconds, they have defect, that's given.  If the shoes fit and feel comfortable, enjoy them at a great deal.

Will the Brooks Brothers models listed as closeout go on sale for the 2 for 250 sale?

Seeing these "defects" kinda eases my mind about getting mine.

I'm keeping them, they look and feel great. I was just trying to figure out why they were defects. Now onto the Mac/cold iron method.

Hmm what's the difference between the Mcallister (bourbon @ $245.65) and the Jefferson (brown @ $229) besides the latter being a part of the independence collection?

Also beside the previous advice, if I'm a 6.5E on the five last, what would I be for the 3 last for the Rutledge? I'm seeing conflicting advice. Thanks!
