Keep an eye out for the new Fall collection.  That picture of the Harrison on the 3 last looks promising.

Yea the Harrisons look really nice as well, however is that going to be on the Independence collection, which means they are going to go for $445 or whatever they are. 

 

If that is the case... idk.  I love the Rutledges in black, however the Harrison will probably look even better... so my next 3

 

Rutledge in black, Neumora in brown, Harrison in walnut

 

or

 

Rutledge in burnished walnut, Neumora in brown, Harrison or Park in black since there is very little noticeable difference as of right now

 

 

hmm

+1. I like the burnishing on the walnut Rutledge. Also, the Independence line now sells for $475. Not sure I would pick that over C&J.

What items do you use to take care of your AE shoes? They're my first proper pair of dress shoes.

You may still be able to find the Hale in black at places like the Nordstrom Rack... I was at the one in Dallas over the weekend and they had the Hale in both black and in chili... pricing was about $200.

Pretty inaccurate. Even after sizing with a Brannock device (both nordstrom and a-e associates have measured me), i had to go a whole size lower on the PA/5 last shoes. your feet are whatever size fits for the last in question. if you can, take advantage of free shipping both ways.

Really like this new dark brown wax infused leather on the McTavish. Just ordered a pair.

Take some pics when you receive them! I'm dying to know how they look in person.

Congratulations on your new shoes.

I always put some AE cleaner / conditioner on the shoes before wearing them. Then I use the AE carnauba polish as needed. I also use the AE cleaner / conditioner every so often to keep the leather soft.

Alway use shoe trees - if your foot is not in your shoes, cedar shoe trees should be. Also, wipe off or brush your shoes after each wearing to keep them looking nice.

Over the last several months, I have accumulated the following...

 

Split toe cedar trees for every pair I have (4)

One (dirty) horsehair brush for my calf shoes

One (clean) horsehair brush for each color of my calf shoes, I have one for Walnut and one for Merlot... I use these to brush throughout the polishing process.

One dirty and clean brush each for my cordovan.

One dauber for cordovan

One dauber for calf (a good rinse with warm water after each use is good, however I'll probably end up getting a few more per color)

A crapload of their clothes, for $2.00 a piece you can't beat them

Various polishes for each color, conditioner, natural heel and sole dressing, and then chili and dark brown sole dressing.

 

Need to get some more brushes (for my black shoes) and also will probably get some saddle soap for my Neumoks at some point down the road.

 

Will evenually get Saphir for my cordovans... I am going to spend a couple hours on mine one day with the dark brown polish that I have and see what kind of luster I can get out of applying multiple thin layers and giving them a proper spit shine.  I am still not 100% happy with AE's finish on cordovan, so I am sure with enough elbow grease and patience, I can really get some depth out of my strands.

 

 

Random question... AE website shoes "brown" for the cordovan cream, however mine is "dark brown." Does anyone have just brown?  If anything, I would actually like to lighten up my cordovans a tiny bit if there is such thing as just regular brown.

I've been following this thread for months, and I don't think anyone has posted this. It looks like AE has introduced the ability to choose a different sole when purchasing on the website, for an extra $50. Right now it seems to be only available for the Park Ave.

Hmm wish I saw this before I bought them...I actually just dropped my strands and PAs off to the cobler today to have sole guards put on them...78 bucks.

Could someone kindly help me identify this shoe:



Thanks!
