    Reason #2 is why I'm probably going to be pulling the trigger, even though I already have a brown Fifth and a chili McAllister.

    I've also been bitten by the Natural Chromexcel bug. Debating on whether I like the Clark Street or Oak Street, or if I should hold out for a plain-toe blucher, which is what I really want.

    $100 off First Ave Boot 2nds, bringing them down to $249. I chose to go this route over grabbing Fifth Aves...but I do still kind of want Fifth Aves, although I also have MacNeils on the way. Both my wallet and girlfriend are not pleased.

    Exactly my point. For those who work in a "business" dress environment, they don't make much sense. But for those of us who wear tropical suits and light colors in the summer because we would otherwise die of heat exhaustion, they make wonderfully nice additions to our wardrobes.

    Those boots look awesome! I don't yet own a full length boot from AE, just a chukka.... between those and the Daltons.

    Wearing chili Byrons today. This is the shoe that got me started with AE. Bought them on ebay as new old stock. There is a slight color variation between the shoes, which has not evened out after wearing them for a while. After purchasing and trying on many more since this purchase, I have realized that I really like the 234 last. Unfortunately, AE had different ideas.

    I was never a boot guy so I started with the Dundee to test the waters. I think its safe to say that my Daltons and First Aves are my favorite AE footwear purchases to date.

    I brush my shoes for 30 seconds or so and bag 'em with trees at the end of the day. I try to let them air out for 15 min. or so before I tree/brush/bag. I think keeping the dust off the leather is a good thing, and it makes the brushing just before I put them on a very short one.

    The boxes are in the attic,
