    That is really disappointing. I almost wonder if I should send them to B. Nelson instead. They appear to do the same thing AE does for $150 and AE CEO recommended them not that he needed to.

    Its an early end to the week to head out for a wedding. This makes it casual Wednesday for me and time to wear the Fenways.

    I kind of wish that I had sent the Strands to B. Nelson, as those are worn enough to warrant a JR sole. The Fairfaxs that I got back don't get enough wear to benefit from a JR sole (they were an eBay purchase).

    One of the SAs I spoke to made a point to tell me not to use Conditioner on colors like Walnut or Dark Chili because it takes away some of the finish. Not sure if that's true or not, haven't tried it.

    Well I'm not sure how it impacts Walnut and Dark Chili of the nonburnished variety but my burnished bourbons lost color/burnishing with the AE conditioner which means I'm stuck using that premium polish only. Hopefully that is enough to care of the shoe? I tried Saphir renno and it took even more off so I'm not really sure what the solution is here.

    Thanks! Good info.

    Do you have another pair with combination tap soles? Showing him exactly what you want might help cut through the communication barrier. In my experience, it usually takes time (and a couple miscues) to establish a rapport with a tradesman. I know that's not what you want to hear but I've never found a short cut through the trial and error/getting to know you phase.

    Looking good. Is that the Dundee 2.0 in calf?
    I like the combo with navy chinos.

    Shucks, the last Carlyle in Bourbon is gone. Oh well, ad that to my list of shoes I missed out on.

    I reached for my Fenways this morning, but ultimately settled on short wings. Figured I'd save the Fenways to pair with jeans tomorrow, as no one will be in the office. I just love the look of denim and longwings!! Btw, we may be the only 2 on this board with these, at least that have posted pics. (Maybe @Neo1 has them stashed in the waaaay back of his closet??)

    Thanks! Yes, 2.0 in brown calf. The poron insole is a winner, very comfortable.
