It "Throwback Thursday (c)" and today we are really taking it back to an altered AE universe. The Park Avenue has not always been the classic cap toe balmoral we all know and love, nor has it always been on the good ole 65 last. Back in 1971, when dinosaurs still roamed the earth and disco was just a few years away, the Park Avenue was on the Belgium last and it was a plain toe single monk (watch and shoe trees not included.) Yes, this beauty was available in Black Llama Grain calf and something called Teak-Burr llama grain calf. So I'm not sure if it was made from a cow or a Llama, not is it clear what color Teak-Burr represents. So if you stumble upon the old Park Avenue in the wild you will know what you have discovered.
And best of all...AE had moved forward to embrace the technology of an answering machine to accept orders 24 hours a day.
