    No problem. Always nice to have an excuse to do some shoe hunting.

    Unfortunately not on this trip,MacAllen’s in Speyside which has the largest concentration of distilleries in Scotland and may have to wait for a future “whisky tour”! Today I toured the Auchentoshan distillery outside of Glasgow. One of only a few Lowland single malts. I really like their whiskies and picked up a limited edition from Bordeaux casks. Forgot to take “in the wild “ pic:brick: but wore my Bellevues on the tour,here’s a “sampling” image.jpg image.jpg many pardons for the state of my Bellevues,they hiked through wet pastures and up rocky hills yesterday. Bick 4 restored them but a little Cordovan creme when I get home should do the rest!

    If you call the factory shoe bank, will the SA check your size for SMU and BB stuff out in the tent?

    This is the only other Yonge St I have seen other than my own. Nice.

    AE pricing is like the weather - if you don't like it, just wait awhile and it'll change:

    Slate is grey, taupe is grey with some green, loden is green with some grey. They're pretty similar and the AE pics online do a horrible job of showing what they look like.

    I doubt that they would for SMU as you have to look for the boxes scattered with the regular makeups and then open each box. Plus there are very few SMU to be found. The BB is on a separate table and clearly marked so they might do that.

    Thanks. Without seeing them in person, which do you think would be most versatile. I mainly wear chinos/jeans and button down/sport coat

    As leather shoes drop out of favor, cattle hides pile up
    http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-leather-shoes-20180612-story.html?outputType=amp

    "Hide prices are among the lowest since 2009. They’ve dropped as much as 24% from the same time last year and are down by almost half since the peak in 2014, according to the most recent monthly report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture."

    Anyone let AE know costs are down?

    I had an interesting conversation with an SA from The Shoemart about Alden seconds. She said that they are introducing a point system where you will first need to acquire sufficient points (through the purchase of Alden shoes) in order to be allowed to view available Alden seconds.
    Looks like the eBay option just started to get much more appealing.
