The Jefferson has a double sole like the Cambridge but is missing a bit of brouging around the throat that is present on the McAlister and the Cambridge.

All are oxford wingtips on the 5 last.

I noticed that on the aexnet site as well but when I asked the SA at Port Washington about an exchange they provided me the same list with updated inventory. So yeah doesn't seem like they want to unfortunately.

I wasn't really sure which sole I'd like best, so I had my cobbler install some tap soles and rubber toe taps on my other pairs. I'll probably know in a few months which sole is most preferable and which would last the longest.

First, a pic of my test AE pairs (all recently acquired after I found this thread):



With the different soles installed (L-R: Toe taps, OEM combination tap sole, vibram tap sole):

Could anybody tell me what is the color of the left Strand? Bourbon or dark brown? Thanks!

Gorgeous, when did you place the order?  I've ordered mine 2 weeks ago and was told that they would ship by the first week of April.  Hope that mine would come out looking as good as yours.

Those look good. How much was the Vibram tap sole? Been thinking about adding one or two to a new pair. Would like one with the tread like the oem AE one though. Would it be sacrilege to put one over a JR sole?

Just curious, is the upcoming April sale on firsts or seconds? If firsts what are typical discounts, 20-30%?
Thanks!

It's usually 19.22% off select models.

1922 being the year AE was founded. Hence the term "anniversary sale"

I wasn't sure about the cap toe / wingtip design when they released it. But it is now growing on me. And your photos just made it even more appealing. The bourbon color is great on that shoe.

What's the next step?

I feel like I need one more pair for a complete rotation. Probably a darker brown and more formal than the strands. Suggestions?

I have the dark brown FAs, like the others rec'ed, and I love them. But my favorite pair is my merlot McAllisters.
