You could also customize every part of the shoe ie. type of welt, edge dressing, insole, outer sole.

As I mentioned above, corresponding with James, he just notified me but had no hard details yet as to what will be offered.


Huge shout out to James - he is the best SM I've ever dealt with.  My closest store turns over the staff more often than I can count, I guess due to the turmoil they brought in the big guns - you can imagine my surprise when one weekday a few months ago I was greeted by both James P and Kristen from Paramus (before she moved to Paramus).  Wish they could have stuck around....

 

I believe James still goes by AEBoston but he's never on here anymore. 

 

One more thing  - guy at my work finally showed up with some AEs - first person I've seen with them in 13 years.  When I asked, he said, oh yeah, I only buy from that tall guy with the sports coat from state street - I was like :slayer:he's the man.

I guess it's were you can order any AE model in cordovan leather in 3 colors (black, brown and burgundy). It usually costs $650 per pair plus and extra $120-150 since it's made to order. Only difference in this event is that they waive the extra $120-$150 charge. Anybody every order during this event?

Thanks for letting us know. Now the debate of which model I should get in shell; Leiden, Yorktown, Grayson, or lake forest.

What size did you go with (relative to 65 size) and how do they fit?

AE won't sell to a Canadian on eBay, but my SA is checking to see if he can get them.

I bought 10.5 E - same size as I wear in 65 last. They are only slightly more roomy all around.

I intend to wear these with thicker socks, so that works out just right for me.

Which hole on the belt does the buckle fasten to?  I always order a large belt because I want the last loop on the belt.  LOL.  I think you are actually supposed to be on the third one.

I have not.  This is only good if you want a Shell model in one that is not in regular production.  Such as the Warwick.

I'm confused.
Did you say "or"?

Third one is typical - It seems most recommendations are to order one full size up (e.g. 38 orders a 40-size belt).

I always order 4 sizes up.  I figure it can go on last hole but if you ever gain weight (not that I am planning to) it will still fit.   The only issue with that is my belts have a long flap on one side sometimes.  I have noticed that the Manitesse belt is not true to size compared to other AE belts.  Seems smaller to me.  Maybe the leather.

I've already gained all the weight.  I'm hoping to lose some... ;)

No more Cordovan Dundee the CAC told me it's been discontinued!  :(:(

you're lucky!  Not many out there with that size waist!  I'm a 32-34 depending on what I wear.  It's all glamour sized these days!
