I ordered the Strand (black) on May 29, and received them on June 6. Pretty good.
The box cover came ripped and folded (to fit in USPS box); that's no big deal for me. Shoes came with shoe bags. Only issue with shoes is that left shoe came with a line (scratch is what it looks like) about 1.5 inches in length on left side below laces. I'm not very knowledgeable about whether they could be seconds or not, but I'd say no. Not too happy with scratch but I think I took that risk when I decided to buy something in this manner. I'd rate my experience 8/10.
Thanks for the quick reply (PM) regarding availability of Boston and Fifth Avenue. I am going to try on the shoes (first time with AE) and let you know regarding an order. (Apologies to the list for something that could be a PM but I am new member.)
Just received my shoes today. Fantastic service! Shoes arrived in brand new condition (was a bit worried given some of the recent feedback), and promptly. Would definitely do business again with OP (but now looking for a pair of Alden wing tip boots)
