post #88006 of 110117
Well, the thrift god of black AE Park Avenues has tapped me on the shoulder twice in about as many weeks! I happened across a pair of 10.5 D's today. The BAD NEWS for any of you guys who might like to buy them is that they fit me quite well and thus I'm keeping them. The GOOD NEWS is that they will replace my current black AE Parks in size 11.5 D (which are mostly nicer than the 10.5's but were just too large for me so I rarely wore them) and thus, have become available.

Here are the 11.5's in action. I originally bought them before I knew what AE Parks were but I wanted to try to rescue them from a bit of damage.



And here's some stills of the 11.5's. Now, the thing is, the left shoe has two flaws but both shoes are pretty much 8 out of 10's otherwise in my judgement.



Note that here is a very small separation in the leather at the little toe stress point.


The toe cap does NOT look this bad in real life but the flash shows the Kiwi polish that I applied heavily enough to hide a cut in the leather on the toe.


When I wear them (maybe less than 10 times in around two years), I buff the toe box and they look very good.

So, if you're an 11.5 D and need some staple black AE Parks, I'll ship them for $50 conus. Get at me.

They basically said, sit here/stand there/walk when we tell you and don't talk to the actors unless they talk to you first. The food was incredible. satisfied.gif "House of Cards" switched casting companies for the second season (yes, there is one, they've been filming all around me) so I never got any call backs for Extra work.

I was on an episode of COPS.  They still re-run it - look for me - I'm the guy without the shirt.

Pretty good deal.



Also for any of you interested in a pair of those AE Schautals (basically a suede MacNeil with a thick double oak sole, made specially for Nordstrom Rack) like the pair Fueco grabbed a few weeks back, they're on clearance at $69. For a double sole, suede, USA made longwing, that is impossible to beat. They only have them in an odd brown somewhere between chocolate milkshake and snuff. Also they only have them in widths of D or EEE. Hit up your local shop and grab a pair.



My city is such a shit hole for menswear that our local NR carries low end Macy-like brand stuff...all ours ever has is penguin, Tommy Hilfiger, and Steve Madden (for shoes).  Never once seen AE @ my local NR...sad huh?  And to top it off...i wear an 10 EEE and those AE's you mentioned would be a great addition for a suede pair of shoes.  Its one thing to miss out on opportunities when they arise, and another to miss out without the opportunity even being capable of arising...

My wife texted me to say that a box arrived for me today. She thinks it's my SS gift, but it could be a buyer's remorse return, so I won't get too excited yet. Anyone from Cincy on here?
Incidentally, she said that she has a playgroup with the kids when I get home so could I wait until she's home before opening!? Apparently the Secret Santa has piqued her interest.

If anyone wears a 36 or 38 belt and is interested in American Bison by Trafalgar (retail at $165), I just scored some at deep discount. Hit me up!
