AE advice needed please...

just got back my AE Black Seneca's from recrafting. Man these look good. As i was showing someone here at work the "new shoe", I noticed that there was a gap between the heel and the sole.

Is this an easy fix? glue possibly? or is something serious enough that i should contact AE and possibly send back because it'll be a bigger issue down the road?

I have heard this happening with a lot of AE's. You could contact them, or bring it to a local cobbler.

I'm looking for a pair of grey flannel trousers to dress things up from denim, but down from dress slacks. Not a huge fan of chinos/khakis, so I thought they might help bridge that gap.
I know very little about trousers. Any recommendations on labels and/or other trouser options?

I just returned a pair for this same issue over lunch. Apparently they have had a lot of this issue lately.

Edit: Yes, I would suggest sending them back. I walked in with a pair that had the same problem, showed the employee, and he swapped them out for a new pair without any questions asked. I was prepared for a battle and was out of the store in under five minutes (that included time spent browsing). I would think this is worth sending back if only for cosmetic reasons (thought there are likely structural issues as well).

If you've got the money to spend go Incotex, Zanella, Ovadia and Sons or Howard Yount.

If you don't have the money to spend hit up B&S or try PRL or J Crew.

I just got a new "property of..." waxed cotton bag and it has a musty sort of smell. is this typical with waxed cotton? I found something on google mentioning some waxed cotton smells because of a linseed oil treatment, but I have no idea how linseed oil smells. is there any way to know if this is just "new bag smell" or if it came from a flooded warehouse? if the former, is there a good way to get the smell out?

Was also wondering about this... what pants do people like for casual wear outside of jeans? I feel odd wearing my grey dress pants out to bars/etc.

Some people like cotton chinos.

Cords, Moleskin, Poplin, Linen, Wool... You can find solid casual pants in all of those materials, though bear in mind that the more casual you try and get the closer you'll inevitably get to chinos.

I am looking to buy my first suit. I would like it to be a classic (and practical) midnight blue (call it navy if you wish) two-button. Austin Reed are doing made to measure suits from 8-9 oz. wool from English mills for £299. Is that good bang for the buck or should I seek out something elsewhere? And if so, where?

Does anyone know where I can buy a floppy hat for cheap like Mr. Rabensteiner here? I want to wear a hat like this if I get caught in the blazing sun. Thanks in advance.

Does anyone know where I can get the exact hardware that Ambrosi uses for their side adjusters (i.e. the metal adjuster component)? sideadjuster.jpg 23k .jpg file
