I'm totally on a roll...first capt Kenilworth, then wmg, I'll have to make sure the next one is good, setting the bar high.

Edit - oh wait a minute....that was him quoting me? Now I'm totally embarrassed - hope I didn't offend you. Wow, way to go neo insulting a guy who finally listed to customers and made improvements. Really sorry.

I purchased my first brand-new pair of AE's during the Merlot sale. After a sizing snafu, and exchanging them at the store here in MN, the new pair of McAllisters arrived while I was on vacation. I was thoroughly excited to wear them out for my anniversary dinner tonight, when I found this on the tongue....

 

 

There were some smaller imperfections on the welt, and a couple of very small scuffs which I'd decided to live with, but not this. Looks like I'll have to find another excuse to take my wife to a nice place for dinner in the near future...

The shell seconds came in...there is a little bit more red in these photos that I took with my phone than there is to the naked eye.  My socks are closer to brown than maroon.

Haha miscommunication. Original should imo never be spoilered. Quote maybe, but in this case I didn't because A) look at them, and B) I'm too lazy to figure out how to spoiler them frown.gif

I got my Jingle Bell Mocs from ShoeBank today - they look pretty darn good and fit great!


Looking forward to the holidays!

The Dundees have eyelet issues on one of the boots.  When laced up the boot feels too loose due to the eyelets not being high enough.  I think I have to send them back, my wallet is a bit happier.

 

I love the Strands though, I'm completely fine with the minor stitching and fraying flaws.

Sorry again for posting on here about this, since it's not AE (but the only reason I strayed from AE to OSB for these was because AE doesn't have a shoe that fulfills this niche).  Decided I couldn't get the fit right on these after going back and forth.  They're very nice, and some day I may try again, but too much going on with getting ready to move (hooray finishing residency) and it's a pain shipping the shoes back and forth while changing addresses.

So I guess back to the drawing board.  I wish AE made a nice wingtip (longwing or shortwing) gunboat type shoe that wasn't the MacNeil (just something about the aesthetics of that shoe that seem off to me a bit).  I want a nice, sturdy brown wingtip with a reverse/storm welt and light colored/natural edge and sole.  Short of a MTO or re-soled MacNeil, I can't think of anything that really fits there.  I have tan AE/RL Sandersons but they're a bit more sleek, and I never see my size/width pop up in my shoebank searches in brown unfortunately.  I guess I could consider a resole on my Madison Parks in dark chili but it's just not the same really.

Anyone know of a good shoe that looks similar to what I'm describing/what I pictured above?

Still some Mcgregors hanging out at 137 on the Bank. Also firsts are hidden for 157 if you call. At least that was the case a couple months back. I got a pair and am a big fan. May be my most comfortable pair. But the 5 is pretty great for my foot. I like the look more than the McNeil for sure.

Those look great.  The Hopkinson's instep is too high for me, so I'll have to make due with my Merlot PAs.

New brown First Avenues arrived today from this forum's favorite eBay seller.  After my last few experiences ordering firsts or seconds directly from AE, I'm pretty happy with these.  Eyelets are even, seams are right, they fit evenly, everything checks out.  Satisfies my inner barn weasel for more than 80% off...not that that is most important, haha.  I just need to wait for fall....
