    Who's ready for a patriotic offering?
    Would you wear them more than just on Independence Day?

    I like how you matched your pants to the carpet.

    I like your optimism!
    (You don't really know that you've solved the problem until you receive them.)

    Misaligned blucher eyelets are long-documented. They're pretty much a feature, not bug, at this point.

    I talked to the SA at the Chicago store that I bought the shoes from. She was really awesome with her service.

    This reminds me of my most recent firsts purchase--a pair of Dundees. The lacing eyelets were misaligned on both boots. I sent a picture to the CAC SA I ordered them from and she replied with an apology that they weren't up to MY standards. I returned them to my local AE and store and was told they were handmade and that defects like that should be accepted. I declined the offer to order a replacement pair.

    This makes me doubt that there's a big difference between firsts and seconds. Or at least that the two groups have a large area of overlap. Yes, I've received some really bad seconds. But I've also received seconds on which I could find no flaw. But like seconds, firsts are a crapshoot too.

    ^^^^
    If your room full of Harvard MBA's tell you things are trending more casual, why do you eliminate this model?

    If you are going to offer proper dress shoes, then make them properly. This less piping, more Poron trend just makes it easier to bail to another brand for traditional dress shoes. I do like the 201 last though.

    I agree with that. Despite my recent gripes about quality on certain pairs, I will continue to purchase because they are largely made in the U.S. Should I blame the DR production facility that sews the uppers? I don't know...they are still a good value, especially when they're on sale.
