Goddammit. I think this is my first return request to do SNAD.


What the hell color does this guy think a chili is?

I'm happy to take the return if he's unsatisfied, but the shoes damn well do match the description, and I don't want to pay out $27 in shipping without charging a re-stocking fee.
Do I just have to eat this?

You didn't invent the term chili. It's the AE term right? Is there a color code on the shoes?

Yes, chili an AE term, but I don't know anything about their color codes.

56 is the model, 6 is the color and 5 is the last if I recall

Thing is AE also has 2 different varieties of Chili.  I cant remember exactly what is what but I believe there is Bob's Chili and Dark Chili.  They switched a few years ago and now only use one.

 

Edit:  Would not have used the term "brown" in title.  Chili is definitely a varient of Red in AE.  I believe it to be a red polish with black burnishings

Their chili color is more a dark burnt orange. These almost look like color between chili and oxblood. Being older, the color may no longer exist, but I don't think those are chili.

Assuming the color in the picture is correct and the match what the shoes look like in person, are there any grounds in returning the shoes "because they are red not chili"? I don't think he technically claims they are chili in color as he lists brown as the color in the description.

 

Returning them "because they are red not chili" is like returning them because "I bought them but decided my life will continue without them, therefore they are not ESSENTIAL".

In the original listing, they are described as " Allen Edmond’s celebrated cap toe oxfords, the Park Avenue, in dark chili leather." That's not to say that he still can't get out of the SNAD with the right CSR, but does make it little more difficult. I beat a SNAD on a beige jacket the other day that they buyer said was more yellowish than it appeared in photos, but they had a number of different factors working against them that helped my buyer remorse claim, like trying to renegotiate after an accepted offer and not paying until an unpaid item case was opened.CRIPTIO

Bob's Chili (later called Dark Chili) is 5610.  That color was introduced around 2013-14.  The insoles on your pair are much older.  5665 had been used in the past for Park Aves in Chestnut Polished Cobbler.

Awesome link. Thanks, man.

I just accepted the return. I leave for Burning Man tomorrow, and I don't have time to deal with it. Depending on when he sends the return, I should barely be able to refund his money in time.

Chili/Chestnut its mostly semantics.  My guess is the the buyer realized they were corrected grain, and used the color description as an excuse.
