Like I said, give out brands that are readily available everywhere. British brands aren't, trust me, I've looked and it is still pretty rare to go to a store and try those on.
Wolverines and AEs are available in Nordstroms, Neimans, Saks, etc...
Ok now youa re saying AE has ok leather, first you said it was awful. Big difference in those two. You didn't like AE and that really speaks more than how the leather and quality of that leather is. If you say it's awful, people here who needs advice might write it off right away but if you simply said you didn't like it, then that is completely different. I still think you are blinded by baller footwear by looking at quality, you are just not aware of it, you don't have to directly compare the two to do so. I mean look at the price range of AE and Wolverines and how much they go for when they go on sale or hits Nordatrom Rack and you'll see that they are more than enough for most.
At the end we'll just have to agree to disagree but AE and Wolverine leathers aren't awful for the regular joe and it is easy to get and return unlike British brands that stills seem pretty rare to see in stores and try on/handle in person. Pediwear and Herringshoe still requires ordering from overseas and returning is a bitch, lots of trial and error.
You may not have criticized all of AE but saying:
You can see where people will construe that as generalizing of the whole brand.
Anyways, no point in arguing though, no one is going to change your mind and I know what I've handled and owned (hell I'm looking at my pairs right now) so our opinions will simply stay as is.

you really dug too deeply into what i said, its all good lets drop it

Not really, you do it quite often, you just don't notice. You did it about Guidi in this same thread a few pages back except you did it the other way around. You said you tried on a specific pair of Guidi boots and that is why you didn't like the brand and then when someone calls you out on it or simply asks you to try on other shoes made by Guidi before you write-off the brand, you said that you have tried other Guidis and that is actually make you dislike the brand. It is just confusing the way you write your responses.

ok - sweet, this has been fun.

Just out of curiosity - back to my original post - other than the AE or Wolverines anything I should check out that is "less suspect" (besides Alden - personally not a fan).

Ive debated on some Loakes and even the Herrings, but still a little annoyed that I have to order sight unseen, and probably have to return the first pair across the ocean.

If it helps, ill be out in SFO for a week...anywhere I should check out?

These Butteros from Barneys, consensus was to size down 1 or .5?
post #4701 of 5231
.5

Thanks guys.
post #4704 of 5231
didnt someone just say they sized down 2
post #4705 of 5231
YMMV.

Mine were a different pair. I sized down 1.5 and they were a tough long, but 2 would've been too tight in the instep.

But yeah, YMMV as mine were a different pair to what people normally buy.

Best to try on if you get the chance.

Looking for a pair of slim black lace up boots, very casual to wear with black slim jeans and leather..
I found this one, can some one comment on it? Never heard of that brand.

Just got the Butteros, wasn't quite happy with them. Didn't like the color that much and I probably could have sized down 1 size for the length (had 1.5" in the toe), maybe even 1.5 depending on the instep. Gonna return for some F+B Elfs...they run TTS, right? Might start thinking of my boot size as 8.5

Would a Barney's co-op carry the same stuff as what they have on their site?

A great looking McNairy Brogue, classic with a twist.
