    nice match of the shoes and belt, which belt are you using?

    I like the gray pant+walnut strand combination. :)

    Hey all.

    I know pretty much nothing about AE lasts, and I have no stores near me to check them out, so:
    I wear a 9.5 in the AE Wilberts, and I'm looking to pick up the Strands here on the Nords sale. The Wilberts are perfect on my right fit, a TOUCH big on my left. Stay with 9.5 for the Strands?

    Thanks.

    Yes, you don't want to have shoes that are too small, and a touch big can be solved by a insole.

    It's a brand new pair of shoes, just brush will do. But putting on reno won't hurt either.

    I am at 11 1/2 weeks. I ordered on 4/26. Was told 6-8 weeks on a pair of Shell Walnut Macneil. Last Monday I spoke with Allison and was told my MTO did not pass inspection, so they were being remade. She said I would hear from her in a week or so, so I am anticipating hearing from her soon....

    I am wondering ryderfan, were your Walnut Shell? I know they were very limited on their supply of that.

    Mine are cappuccino shell. I was now told the same thing as you; that they did not pass inspection and have to be re-made. So I am guessing it will be at least a few more weeks for me. I was not told how or why they did not pass and I also asked if I could purchase them as seconds. It took me 3 weeks of emailing every 3 days to finally get an answer as to what was going on. A bit of a frustrating process...

    Yup, I am in the same boat. I ordered in the beginning of May and was just told that my MTO didn't pass inspection either. I'm supposed to hear something in "a few days." Mine aren't Walnut Shell...just burgundy calf.

    I'm happy to see AE's QC dept is meticulous, but just based on this thread, I'm surprised; there appears to be a higher percentage of shoes that don't pass QC than I would have thought.

    Ha! I also asked if I could purchase mine as seconds...what was the outcome in your case? I'm still waiting to hear back.

    Thanks for the reply. They are seconds so I expected some sort of defect. I was just wondering if people thought it was too much of one to keep. It's too late for me to return them now and I got a good price for what BB is selling new for $300.

    Thank you. It is more out there than others in my office as they wear pure black pants, shoes, and socks, but it worked well and I received many compliments. I looked up some strands with colour laces and was not a fan, but I like them on the Neumok. Maybe they just didn't have the right colour laces for me.
    Thank you as well. It is from a store here in Canada called Zelikovitz Leathers - http://zelikovitz.com/courses.html?page=shop.product_details&product_id=7594
    The colour is not dead on the same as the shoes, but it compliments them very well and I actually like it better that way personally.

    They have very well priced items and are cheaper if you sign up for a membership. Usually it is something like $30 for the membership, but promo code "july2013" will get you the membership for free.

    The only real discount is on seconds (contact the shoe bank, or an outlet) and see how you do. A lot of my shell cordovans are seconds. Every once in while, AE does a sale on everything they, I think the last one was roughly 20%, to celebrate their 90 year anniversary.
