Considering my dress, rotation, and intended use, I think I would prefer the older model with the natural welt.

Your shoe pics are always good for one thing... making me want to buy more shoes.

I didn't know there was a 2.0.

 

These are 1.0's.

I have been eyeing a brand new pair of Jefferson 2.0's from our favorite eBay seller for quite a long time. I literally have the same exact shoe already and have no need to buy another, but the list price now is only about $120. The soles are pristine. The only defect? Someone tried to squeeze into a size too small for them. The repair job is undeniably ugly, but likely not too noticeable on a black shoe with longer trousers to cover the heel. I think this shoe is well worth a try for someone on a budget.

 

This is only a PSA because I will not be buying them. The size is 10B, and would probably fit a medium-narrow foot that takes 10D in the 65 last. http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Allen-Edmonds-034-THE-JEFFERSON-2-0-034-Oxfords-10-B-Black-281-/122353513298?

Well after my initial wear of the MD Chukkas in Snuff I have not worn them since. They just didn't fit like my dundees probably due to the way the are stitched near the widest part like the Gobis. I wore them 1 time and had to take them off after about 4 hours due to pain. I'm going to try and put them on again and see where it is but I'm likely going to be selling them. They are 9D. Not sure what I'll be asking for them but itll be under $200. I have the box and everything they came with. PM me if you are interested otherwise they will likely be headed for the bay.

Edit: I wonder how many people know the latter. He put on some fun shows back in the day. Saw DU once too. Short of a few songs, I thought they were turrrrrrible.

My first AE pic......

Very lightly used McAllisters from Ebay guy and bad carpet from convention. In San Antonio for work. Did not get a pic of the Camel SC that goes with. Also: Manistee belt from same seller to tie it in.



OK....can't figure out how to post pic.

Same here. Caught him at ACL fest a couple times. The second time around JJ brought him out to do Rodeo Clowns together. Basically camp out in one spot the whole day for G-Love, Jack Johnson, the Roots, and Ben Harper. Rodeo Clowns, along with the Roots breaking into Sweet Child of Mine, was definitely the highlight!  < / before my AE times, or I would have thrown that in to keep this comment relevant. >

I'm curious as to why the Brooks Brothers models are more expensive than regular AE shoes, but the 2nds are much cheaper than regular AE seconds.  For example, the BB Strand is $428 new, but the BB seconds Strand is only $149.  :puzzled:

I've always wondered this myself particularly since I think the poron + v-tread is an upgrade. Sadly they have nothing in my size except the presidio's that nobody seems to want at all.

Anyone have any experience or opinions on the Brooks San Marco? I've been looking for a casual wet weather shoe and I might bite at $149.

Use caution with the 222 last.  You might need a width wider than what you usually wear.
