The latter is more formal. I personally like the McAllisters better - by a long shot.

X100 well X2 at least, I couldn't agree more.

Yes, those prices are for seconds. I'm stopping by my outlet and will ask if the 15% discount is on everything, I should have an answer tomorrow pm.

Are the differences between firsts and seconds negligible?

I'd like to know this as well. I don't have an outlet anywhere near me.

I remember this sale from last year - 14.92% off everything - it applies to first quality shoes and belts as well.  There will be a few select shoes with a bigger discount.

Looking to pick up some polish for my AE Gramercy (whenever they arrive). What shoe care products colors should I use? The color to match is "dublin cognac". Thinking about trying out some Saphir products.

I was told by AE to use saddle soap since it is in the rough collection.  Do you have any pictures to share of the Gramercy since the pictures on Urban Daddy aren't very good

Yeah, I posted them a few days ago, but here they are...
The gramercy seem to have a more "finished" leather.

Wondering if you all can help me?  

 

Small feet.  7.5D left foot, 6.5D right foot.  High instep. Slightly narrow heel.

 

Love all the 5 last shoes.  Unwilling to pay the full freight of $335 on most of them.

 

Always understood that one fits the larger foot, so I ordered 7.5D Elgins on closeout from AE via the website and 7.5D Park Aves on Amazon with a discount code.

 

Neither fits. Gapping at the vamp, bowing on the sides and pinching at the outer arch.

 

Went to an AE store as well as to Nordstrom in NJ and tried to get a better fit with little luck, mostly because due to the small size, they just didn't have the stock to try on options. For example, I wanted to try on a Sanford (blucher) because I understand them to be more forgiving of a high instep - nothing in stock... Nordstrom wanted to put me in Italian shoes at a much higher price tag and can't be recrafted... Not interested in that.

 

I have access to the AE stores in NYC, but like I said, I have no intention of paying full price. Do you think the salesmen will give me the time of day if I tell them that I'm just trying to find a shoe/last combination that works for me? Any other guidance how to figure this out?

 

I really want to find some AE shoes that will work for me as I think many of them are gorgeous, the value/price combo (on sale at least) works, and I love the idea of the recrafting service.

 

Thanks in advance for any replies,

Murph

 

 

I think your best bet is to go in store and get your foot measured by one of the SAs. Then if they don't have your size, I think they have the options of ordering it to the store, then you come in again to try. You are under no obligation to buy.
