Then, I would contact AE and see what they say. I don't think thats normal.
Got a pair of dark chili carlyles during the recent sale. They are beautiful. However there is some substance on the welt. What is this and can it be removed?
Thanks in advance!
@ace13x...actually he probably could do better with a balmoral considering the Carlyle isn't really on the 201 . Don't sweat it though - on Paul's reddit ama he said the Carlyle was on the 65.
Why did I think the Carlyle was on the 201??? This is what happens when I only have 2 cups of coffee in the last 24hrs.
Far be it from my to contradict Paul, but it's clearly on the 108.
Had a question - back when I stupidly passed on the gray Mctavish, I remember it being not quite suede, but suede-like, like one of the brown kiowas. You said you wear this out in the rain - does it really hold up ok? I'm paranoid to wear anything but tough grain when it's raining.
I am still fairly new to AE even though I've bought several pairs. What time of year do new styles come out? Will we see anything in the near future? Doe anyone have any insight as to what is coming out?
I guess I need to clarify....I'm referring to dress shoes. I'm not talking about casual shoes that are seasonal.
They'll generally bring out a few new dress shoes inAugust or September.
Does anyone know what the Memorial Day sale will offer?
That happened to my McAllisters with the cleaner/conditioner (posted a few pages back) in the same exact spot. On the great advice here, I contacted AE and they sent a return label to have them sent back. I would do the same for this.
Disappointing that the leather lotion does this as well, I was planning to use that to condition before polishing. Now, not so sure.
Friends - use Bick 4 to hydrate your shoes. I've used it on every leather shoe (including burnished versions like bourbon, brown, merlot, and dark chili burnished) I have from multiple manufacturers and never seen anything but color-fast buttery softness. I've also used it on a few manistee belts that I have, which seem less supple than my standard AE wide dress belt.
I think of it like Frank's Red Hot Sauce... I put that shit on everything (shoes, chairs, couches, car interiors, belts, jackets, you-name-it). It's pretty cost effective, too.

My first AE shoes. Picked these Strands up on eBay. Seem nearly new with no sole wear. Seems a little discolored on the left toe, but haven't cleaned and polished yet. Either way loving them so far.
After trying a Park Ave in the store, decided to go down half a size on this last. Width seems good and the smaller size seems to better line up the widest part of my foot with the widest of this shoe.
Tapping into my artistic/nature side maybe? Warwick in oxblood
