With bourbon belts firsts all but cleared out, does anyone have experience matching other belts to AE bourbon?  I've tended make shoe and belt purchases in tandem, but didn't have luck this go around.  No luck at shoebank either...

I have a Magnanni belt in tobacco that I use for Bourbon.  Also, there were a ton of bourbon belts at the Charlotte AE store when I was there last week.

I've been a viewer of SF for a couple of years. I really enjoy reading about styles and also the opinions.

Rocking with my Rush Streets before meeting with clients.....

It's almost March (would be if it wasn't for leap year) and it's going to be 75 degrees today - so I went with woven. Chili Winhall

Try giving a call to AE customer assistance, they can find if the belt is available in any store (as it won't show up online). If it's available, SA at the store can ship it to you.

really wish I would have started liking chukkas before these and the gobi got discontinued. Have one pair of gobi in sand and would love another pair in a darker brown. Not in love with the dundee 2.0 compared to the older models.

Assuming I understand your question, you are asking about a "full break" hem.

 

Basically, the hem on the leg of a pair of pants falls into 1 of 3 categories:

 

No break: The pants fall just to the top of the shoe -- there is no crease or "break" as the leg opening hits the shoe

Half break: This is between a full and no break. Probably the most common hem, as pants don't look too long or too short. 

Full break: the back of the pants are longer than the front, and there is a significant crease/"break" as the front of the pants hits the shoe

 

Hopefully that is what you were looking for.

My thoughts exactly. 

 

I have the Gobi in sand, and Dundee 2.0 in snuff, but the Dundee just doesn't do it for me as much. I wish they would have made a danite sole version, and offered a lighter brown color of suede.
