J.Gilbert used to have tobacco chamois indy on crepe. Last time I checked, they still had a bunch of sizes in stock.post #87213 of 1224167/20/14 at 7:08pmpost #87214 of 1224167/20/14 at 7:15pmpost #87215 of 1224167/20/14 at 7:25pmpost #87216 of 1224167/20/14 at 8:39pmpost #87217 of 1224167/20/14 at 8:40pmpost #87218 of 1224167/20/14 at 9:16pmpost #87219 of 1224167/20/14 at 9:40pmQuote:
"Honestly, the AE Dalton in burgundy shell is the one AE shoe/boot that I feel competes well with Alden, in terms of look and quality, and honestly beats Alden's color 8 WT boot on Barrie (Unionmade) by a mile."
My apologies Buddy. I mistakenly thought these were your words. They were from @sacafotos. I think Roguls main issue was with sacafotos blasphemous post. At least that's what I recall. No harm intended my friend...post #87220 of 1224167/20/14 at 10:21pmpost #87221 of 1224167/20/14 at 10:23pmQuote:Originally Posted by sevenfoldtieguy
1. I own or have owned all AE models above. I own all Alden counterparts. I agree with you as to the Strand. I give Alden the nod for the others by a wide margin.
2. AE's MTO policy is great.
3. I typically don't buy seconds, but some good deals can be had.
4. AE's CS is great.

My wife spends a lot on shoes, and she appreciates that what I buy is carefully considered and basically for life. I went on a search for women's goodyear welted shoes, and only came up with Carmina. I have picked up three pairs for her, and the quality of build (stitch vs glue) is far beyond the Italian mules she usually wears. I buy them with loving generosity, for sure, but I don't kid myself that they don't reinforce the habit for both of us.Carmina women's shoes> (Click to show)
