    Not mad in the least that people want to take advantage of sells. That's the American way, go for it.

    What I find incredibly humorous is the people that bitch that they can't get what they want on sale or when they get the sale item, they are not happy to because there is some minor flaw. Good grief, I too take advantage of sales, but I don't bitch about everything little problem or that I can't get exactly what I want.

    Stop and think about it, AE products great products for a very fair price even at their full retail prices. Just do me a favor before you want to flame on me, go back through this thread and read it with an objective point of view. Look at all the posts on "poor" AE quality, bitching about "Ican't get this or can't get that for a sale or reduce price." When you look at it from an objective point of view, you can't help but wonder, "what the hell do these people want?"

    And if all AE customers were like many of the guys on this thread, AE would be out of business very quickly.

    Walnut Cordovan Dalton's after 1.5 years of VERY hard wear. If anyone remembers, they had a tear wear the vamp meets the foot and they've held up quite nicely. Can't say I'm a fan of the leather darkening up but the patina development has been beautiful.

    For reference, some pictures during the month I got them.

    Nothing wrong with a civic. They are great cars. I've had a civic and it was one of the best cars I have ever had.

    So for anyone with experience on the 333 last, I know the question has been asked before, but do you size down half a size compared to your 5-last shoes ? thanks

    Seems the general consensus is that 333 last is longer, but im not sure its long enough to warrant going down half

    Order placed for 3 pairs. Heavy on "fun" shoes, as I'll get staples elsewhere. 1 pair of brogues for next fall, and two pairs of specs for the coming spring/summer, one light and one dark.

    Guys (and girls),

    Versatility of the Strand in Walnut vs Brown CXL?

    I'm thinking walnut is more versatile (casual and dress), whereas Brown CXL is purely casual but more unique in that regard.

    Thoughts?

    Very nice.

    I picked up the burgundy ones a couple of months ago and interested to see how mine turn in color. Do you have any Before pix or at least when they were new?

    I think the Strands in Walnut is one of the best shoes around period so to me that is the way to go. I own the Rush St and enjoy wearing them though I am having an odd crease issue in the cap toe.

    I am going to agree with you. I think the Walnut Strand is much more versatile than the Rush Street. I recently bought the Rush Streets and they are great - but they are definitely a more casual shoe. I personally will not wear my Rush Streets with a suit.

    The Walnut Strands can do a suit and can also pull off jeans.

    You can't go wrong with walnut strands. You can wear them with anything, except black pants and shorts and light wash jeans. Dark jeans are a stretch, but I like them and they can be pulled off.

    I'm glad we are talking about shoes and not how much our cars cost and how people like to 'bitch'.

    I emailed you the 9.0D, 9.0E, 9.5D, and 9.5E lists I was provided this morning. If anyone else needs them, just let me know.

    I like the Walnut Strands so much that I may order them in the golf shoe version and have the sole converted as the Golf Strand is built on the same last as the Shaker Heights and the SH simply is a pleasure to wear- roomy with no slip

    Finally got my list. Advice on which shoe to have in walnut? My options are PAs or Sanfords.
    Planning to grab the strands in brogue suede so not sure I need another medallion cap toe. Also already own PAs in black.

    I took the comment as sarcasm. I hope it was.

    Trying to stay away from this sale haha, just a little too close to the last cordovan seconds sale for my wallet. Really need to wait it out for a pair of brown cordovan Strands even though I would really like a few suede models that seem to be included in the sale.

    I would go with the Sanfords. The Sanford is a blucher and you seem to be OK on balmorals.

    I also feel the more casual walnut and more formal Park Avenue style can conflict a bit.

    Can someone compare the RL Singleton fit to the 5 last? I'm 11.5E in Strand, Mcallister and PA. Also, is there a list of what's in the 2/250 or are all closeouts fair game?
