    ALLEN EDMONDS APPRECIATION THREAD 2021: News, pictures, clothing, accessories, etc.

    I agree with you. Issue is my wife seems to think the style like you have above does not go well with gym shorts. I tried to argue this point and lost. Another more pressing and costly issue comes to mind. Again I agree with you and have taken many walks with the styles like above. Issue is we...

    ALLEN EDMONDS APPRECIATION THREAD 2021: News, pictures, clothing, accessories, etc.

    My sale sneaker buying frenzy arrived today. 3 of 4 pairs came overnight only ordered yesterday. The Alpha Suede Slip-On Sneaker was purchased as a home slipper really. Foot pain develops if I go barefoot so I have to wear inside shoes and these are perfect. Slip on easy and comfortably snug...

    ALLEN EDMONDS APPRECIATION THREAD 2021: News, pictures, clothing, accessories, etc.

    Thanks. I am trending back to AE full time. I was switched over to Carmina for a few years but their quality has gone down and I can no longer justify them as value for the money. Even if Carmina quality improves it's hard to come close to the Value of AE. I purchased the Ranger boots over...

    Carmina Shoes - Definitive Thread (reviews, advice, sizing, etc...) - official thread.

    I have several Detroit, Oscar, and Forest storm and non storm there is no perceivable difference in fit. Perhaps if they are pairs made in the past year with the issues we have seen posted it is more likely differences in the way they are lasted at the factory. I would assume different workers...

    Yup you are right it is very hard to get politicians to do the right thing when it is needed unless it directly benefit them. So yes we throw out a blanket fix that is not perfect as that it better than nothing at all. What needs to happen is vote them out of office but again takes time we did...

    Carmina Shoes - Definitive Thread (reviews, advice, sizing, etc...) - official thread.

    I agree that we should have address these items on a state by state level this would have been even more fair. Here goes another hot topic t eh $15 min wage. This should also be on a state by state case but yes the base level needs to be addressed in many states. People argue that some states...

    Carmina Shoes - Definitive Thread (reviews, advice, sizing, etc...) - official thread.

    You are to hot headed to read my post No where did I say not to give unemployed people a stipend. What I said is that the stipend should not have been a fixed amount and been a percentage of your original pay. Read what I posted again after you chill out. I even gave examples but let me go...

    OK did not see that post at least you get how its working. Why not they paid into the sys they are as entitled as anyone else it's insurance. I'm kinda joking since if you are a millionaire you are not a slacker who settles for less. What they should have done was a % of your pay and not a...

    Carmina Shoes - Definitive Thread (reviews, advice, sizing, etc...) - official thread.

    I get you and partly agree, but the fact is Everyone on unemployment got it not just low wage earners. So you are saying "therefore more likely to be getting the additional benefit and that's true" There is no "more likely" when again everyone got it no matter original wage you could have made 1...

    Carmina Shoes - Definitive Thread (reviews, advice, sizing, etc...) - official thread.

    "People getting that stipend were some of the lowest wage earners in the US " This is a false statement the $600 and now the $300 is being given to Everyone on unemployment from min wage to hundreds of thousands. Completely does not depend on your original pay. So if you were in some state with...

    Is there a prize? I can do better next time for sure! I am always out to win at what I do. My mother always told me 2nd place is still a loser there is only one winner. So if you don't go for and get 1st place you are just a loser like all the rest. Hard fact but so true. Thank you zag73 you...

    Carmina Shoes - Definitive Thread (reviews, advice, sizing, etc...) - official thread.

    Shoes yes but let me answer your question. "However, you don't seem to be mentioning your employees at all." When covid hit for this business all employees were laid off since most everything was closed. Then maybe you know about PPP so that was applied for in hopes to retain employees. This...

    The Shell Cordovan, non-Alden Shoe and Boot Thread

    Easy to clean and get back there are a few write ups on this but clean with damp cloth don't be stingy with the water. You are evening out with water then let dry then condition polish as normal and good as new.

    Carmina Shoes - Definitive Thread (reviews, advice, sizing, etc...) - official thread.

    No offence taken. Currently 1 and if I put out poor quality or wrong orders I get bad Google reviews, corporate complaints, nasty Facebook post, nasty voicemails, nasty emails, bad Yelp reviews the list is long this all leads to lost customers and sales. Times are hard sales are slacking with...

    I totally get you there are some companies that have left a bad taste in my mouth that no matter what happens in the future I will just never ever purchase from them again as a matter of principle. Example Mercedes Benz and any company that is associated with them or they are invested with in...

    Carmina Shoes - Definitive Thread (reviews, advice, sizing, etc...) - official thread.

    I agree with you, I posted a similar statement a while back that we had no issues until covid. But at some point someone at a higher level has to make sure that what is going out the door is of a standard. Sure we all get it and all are suffering from covid and Carmina is a smaller company so...
