I've tried a few other models, but always ended up returning them, they just don't look as good in real life.
AE has sales all the time, not to mention Nordstrom Rack having them at $150ish all day. When I start seeing NIB Vass at the AE price point I'll be first in line to support the Vass > AE argument, but as it stands now I don't see them as comps.
At the AE price point I love the Bel Air, Larchmont, Mora, Park Avenue, Hinsdale, Strand, Flatiron, Boston, and Weybridge.
Not to thread jack, but I find the tightness of where the laces come together on the Weybridge a huge hassle when attempting to polish the tongue of the shoe. Anyone else have this problem?
