    How'd you know I was a bimmer guy?

    We just picked up a new (used) X5 for my wife yesterday since my first kid is due in a couple weeks.

    At the AE store at the Magnificent Mile in downtown Chicago. Price $350. It's not even on their site. That's why I was surprised.

    Nice, but I'm still going to wait for the Bayfield.

    That's a nice boot too. Do you know when they're going to bring it back?

    That's the thing about bourbon -- you are rolling the dice on the color. So much variation exists. But it's awesome when you get a good one.

    Definitely was the color that drew me in. The acorn was nice, but I definitely prefer this color to that one.

    I know we've been talking about the bourbon shoes and their propensity for Tiger straight lately, but I'm just curious whether anyone actually likes the effect of the tiger striping?

    While I totally understand it is a matter of personal preference, I actually don't mind the slight tiger striping that I have on that captoe portion of my strands.

    If its on both pairs I like it actually. Only issue is when one has it and other doesnt.

    I think I found my next AE - that is a good looking boot.

    Got my Niles back from the Cobbler today. They feel much better. Of course, stretching a C width to a D width is not going to be ideal, but the V gap already looks a lot better. I'm going to wear these more and expect the V to close more as I sink into the sole. The only problem is that these shoes are hard as rocks. I do not recommend this shoe because the insole is hard as hell. I hope it softens up in time...

    Received Rutledges from the bank today. 2 Pairs that unfortunately don't match in color so mixing the best ones is not really an option. Looks like the only area of major issue is small burnishing mark on the right toe just before the cap on the left shoe and some of that "flaking" of the burnishing on the broguing. Seems like something that could be fixable and not a very good reason to return of otherwise awesome shoes. Keepers I think!

    Ok, thankfully I'm not the only one at least!! I agree that it needs to be both shoes though so it's a consistent inconsistency!

    Bayfield should be back in the fall. I got a peek of the revisions history, so they are steadily working on it. I saw Brown CXL, and Black (didn't see the leather type).

    Nice! I've always liked that boot and the Bleecker Street. Those two styles were discontinued when I started buying AE footwear so I never had the chance to buy them. I also heard that the Shaker Heights should be back too. Do you know if that's true or not? That's another style I really like.
