Bradleys? I only have one pair if AEs, which are black cordovan Bradleys. They work pretty well with jeans or more casual outfits.

If only I could find longwings with brogueing like that.

2010 Spring Catalogue in PDF format is now available,
but the file seems to be corrupted and won't open.
Can anyone else try this link?

Srivats, those AE's are badass. If AE started making shoes like that again I'd buy them.

Thank you. I will be a buying a pair of new pair of AEs later this week. I'll post a review here once I get them.

Sri, those are some of the best AEs I've seen in a long time. Proportions seem perfect and they have aged gracefully.

Would love to hear what you think of your new shoes as compared to those.

How about something like this? http://cgi.ebay.com/Vintage-Florshei...item563b2ced8d Or these: http://cgi.ebay.com/VTG-FLORSHEIM-IM...item20b0443086 http://cgi.ebay.com/VTG-MENS-FLORSHE...item20b0489e62 Florsheim just churned those suckers out in the 50's and 60's, back when they were a top quality shoe, and as such are pretty readily available in a variety of sizes and widths on ebay. It's not the same pattern as those ones, but it's similar. OT in an Allen Edmonds thread I know, but worth a mention. Just don't buy the newer ones.

Does anyone know if the model that previously went by the name of Clifton is now called Van Ness? I saw a pair of Cliftons at Nordstroms in a really nice looking brown, just a remarkably attractive looking shoe. I see no mention of this shoe on Allen Edmonds site however.
post #86 of 49638
I wore my Cliftons to work today! I believe they were discontinued 1 or 2 years ago, though Nordstrom always seems to have them (and tends to put them on sale quite often, if I remember correctly). Checking the AE website, the Van Ness is a rubber-soled captoe oxford with a decent amount of broguing. The Clifton is actually a captoe blucher with simpler broguing (just single dots whereas the Van Ness has the repeating pattern). I think the Benton is the closest thing AE has to it on the website right now, though the Benton's laces go one pair of eyelets further and the Clifton has no broguing on the heel.

I really like the Clifton. It's a simple blucher that is a little more modern and relaxed-feeling than your standard cap-toe oxford if you want something that still looks simple and respectable without being the standard "interview shoe."

Anyone get the new brown cordovan Strands? I was waiting for shoebuy to get them, saw that they have them now but they're already virtually sold out. If the shell is from horween, seems like a hell of a buy for SCs on one of their most attractive designs for ~400.

If they pop up on shoebuy it's easy to get them at about 20-30% off using discounts and cashback.

Hoping someone can help me out with a sizing issue. I bought a pair of MacNeils in my usual, measured shoe size of 11D. They seem a little tight and short in the toe area. I also have a pair of Cliftons in 11D that fit perfectly.

Anyone else have a similar issue with MacNeils fitting a little small? Or should I expect them to stretch a little when broken in? I've worn them twice and can't really decide. I just ordered a pair of 11 1/2 to compare, but wondering what others' experiences have been.
