    Saving $135 is quite the deal as a first. I doubt you will see that again for quite a while.

    David,

    Thanks.

    I've gotten some great deals on this thread by you and other members giving each other a "heads up" of retailers having AEs on sale. Remember that Jos A Bank deal on their Park Aves? Went to a long lunch and missed that one :brick:

    BTW, your second link didn't work. Thanks, again.

    So do I Doc, Xterra Off Road model and have considered doing the Nissan Titan axle swap on it.

    A good friend of mine at work is French educated Lebanese. 3 things we will never agree on- Israel, my choice in shoes and vehicles. He drives a BMW and claims that I should be driving a Mercedes-Benz. When I ask him if it comes with locking diffs front and back and what is the approach angle he rolls his eyes. Can't see me blowing through water up to the windows with a Mercedes because some beavers had built another dam along some logging road LOL. The right tool for the job......
    Had a FJ55 Toyota Landcruiser back around ~1980 in Washington State (Hood Canal side) which when I got married a few years later it was the first thing to go. The Toyota 2F engine was anemic at best so I did the Man A Fre small block conversion starting with an acid dipped bare block 350 Chevy and built it up from there. Punched it .020 over, 4 bolt main, milled the heads and pop up pistons gave compression where it ran best on 93 or 94 octane. Topped her off with a Holly 650. It was a beast but not sure where I would get fuel for her today. Last I saw of it she was headed to Adak, Alaska. In between the Nissan and Toyota I had American vehicles, but finally gave up on them.

    I have walnut and merlot McAllister and I really like the merlot. The walnut of course is nice too but the merlot is more versitile. I do find that the color is very different in different lighting conditions. In the sunlight it does pop and seems to have more red to it in my experience. It's very nice. While indoors in incandescent light it has a much more muted darker tone but is still nice. I also have the burgundy/black Sheltons and I like the combo and the burgundy is pretty much the same as the merlot color IMO.

    I did see some oxblood Park Aves on eBay and the color looked really nice. It has more red in it. It doesn't seem that AE makes this color any more. Finally, when I saw the merlot Park Ave in person I liked it alot. I don't really like the Park Ave in any other color.

    Indoors (as they came out of the box):

    Those merlot McAllisters are a sight to behold. I just ordered some merlot Sanford's and I really hope they're that nice.

    For those who have Dalton's, I'm really close to pulling the trigger on some walnut ones. Can anyone tell me how high they are? By that I mean measurement from floor or arch to the top of the boot.

    I was at the BB in Salt Lake City last week trying on the AE PA. They told me that BB only has it in D width and sent me around the corner to the AE store to try other widths.

    they may only carry D widths in the store, but they certainly can order you different widths in my experience

    How is the quality of those JOSABANK shoe trees compared to the official AE ones?

    Ordered the Merlot McAllisters from Shoebank this morning and they're arriving tomorrow... This is the 3rd AE pair for me in 2 months.

    The Grown-Up Shoe Game is worse than crack. Before AE I was a recovering Sneaker addict.

    I'm pretty sure Joseph A Banks and Allen Edmonds both use Woodlore Shoe Trees.

    Same Same

    I went from one pair to six within 2.5 months. It is addicting but I love the shoes.
