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 icon_gu_b_slayer%5B1%5D.gifhe's the man.

+1 for James. I'm I Chicago and I go through James.

So shell event participants...what would you get?  For me it would be a Shell Rogue if they would still make it! Then I guess I would want a Shell First Avenue?  Not really wanting any more shell in burgundy.  I have seconds of the: Dalton, Mcneil, Bradley......time to change it up.

Yep that one too.  Snooze we loose!  I am still depressed over the Dundee discontinuation. :)  That was on my hit list for RDA.

I'm on the 4th buckle out of the 5 on my 36 size belts.  I'm on the 2nd or 3rd on my 34 size.  I was more of a 33-34 waist a few weeks back, but now I'm 32 size.  Fortunately, most of my belts are size 34.

Or maybe a Shell Liverpool!  Love that boot.  It rocks.

I had to ask myself the same question.  With all the AE shoes I have what is my favorite?  I can't really tell you.  I know what I have the most of and that is the Neumok.  It was my first shoe with AE and so I guess that is why.  I love my blue Strands and my Merlot Strands. The Cornwallis is growing on me and yes...I too LOVE the Cronmok, it's like soft butter on the feet. I'm going to have to give this some serious thought......what would my favorite be?  I also love the Rogue and have it in 3 variations. I love the large holes it has.  I keep saying to myself the next shoe I buy will be my favorite, at least that is good justification for another shoe right?  LOL.

The Dundee 2.0 is still in production. If this "order any shoe in shell" event happens, you could always get a shell Dundee 2.0.

I would love it if you're right!  :)

You should always aim for the middle hole and err on the side of the 2nd to last one (on the long size).

 

In my experience, the Manistee belt actually fits almost a full hole length longer than the wide dress belt.  The Poplar fits almost just like the Manistee... the wide fits really small.  I wish I had gone a size up on mine.

Or...you could just buy the Slidebelts.com belt  I have several and love them.  Perfect fit everytime and NO holes. LOL

Got confirmation from the Columbus store that yes, it will. I think I'll pay them a visit this month to try some on, and try on a smaller HM for my left foot.
