Now I see him talking trash on the official Allen Edmonds Facebook page. I just don't get it. Why bother commenting if you don't like the brand? Just ignore it or even block it if you must. I just hope he never finds his way to Styleforum or else he'll really annoy the sh!t out of all of us...

 

Interesting.  A Russian with a big problem with AE.   Maybe he's a Johnston & Murphy employee?

Not sure, but I've seen videos of people doing reviews on Dalton boots and Strands and he's always saying something negative. He's even talked trash on Zappos videos talking about Allen Edmonds haha

I am trying to decide between natural and brown cordovan cornwallis from the trunk show (though I'd like to have both), anyone here have brown or burgundy cordovan cornwallis? Any pics will be great...

Sounds like he got burned somehow.  

 

Off topic, but after waiting 4 weeks, my new laces finally arrived.  These are 4 mm which fit the shoes perfectly.  The black ones on the left are my original Carlyle 90 cm laces.  The rest are 75 cm long.  I might suggest purchasing 90 cm if you want them to be a little longer.  Not sure what to do with the light blue, as they don't match well with my suede PA's.   I'll order some dark blue ones.  I've come to realize I much prefer the flat laces over the round ones.

Quick concern. Around the welt of couple of my shell shoes I noticed tiny punch holes where they sew the welt. Should I be worried about water getting in? Or is this normal on most shoes.

I don't have either shoe, but the natural, green and blue options are extremely rare and it could be years before you see them again. Brown can be had more readily.

Where/when is/was this trunk show? I've seen it mentioned elsewhere. Thanks!

Natural shell is beautiful in my opinion (scroll back a couple pages and see the natty shell Daltons I posted). As for green and blue, color me uninterested. I really can't fathom how a blue or green shoe would work into anyone's usual wardrobe, but different strokes for different folks I guess. They look neat as a collectors edition on your shelf, but I can't imagine ever wearing them.

thanks, I see your point but I do agree with backinthejox below, I'd not consider green and blue for a formal shoe no matter how rare they are..

But natural is looking more and more interesting specially with the patina it develops..

As per Chicago store, it will happen on 23rd Oct ( date might change). During the trunk show, SMU charges will be waived off and Natural, Bottle green, Navy and Ruby cordovan colors (special colors) will be available. you can give them a call to find out more..

Agree with you, that natural is beautiful, And also that green and blue ( specially green) are really collector's edition..and I can't use them in my rotation..

 

Not sure if natural cornwallis will look too similar to my u tip whiskey cordovan from Vass..

I don't see why not.

As such I welcome you to the 2016 edition of the Allen Edmonds Appreciation thread.

As usual, the rules are simple. Keep the discussion related to Allen Edmonds, keep it clean and keep it respectful. We are just talking (mostly) about shoes here so there's no need for drama. Let's all have a good time!

I plan to create a list of important discussions from the original thread. If anyone would like to add to the list, just send me a PM and I can add them to the list below. I believe there will be a point when I can no longer edit this initial post so send me those llinks ASAP.

1. Allen Edmonds Appreciation Thread
2. Allen Edmonds MTO Thread
...

Let me start with some pictures of AEs in my rotation

Happened to have brown in my size. I wasn't ever really on the fence, I'm just an opportunist smile.gif
