    Attention everyone:
    I asked if the Mercer Street Suede penny was split or full grain suede.
    And the Answer:
    "The Mercer style features polished Italian calfskin."
    I am getting an education from the Shoe Pro's at AE everyday it seems.
    I know nothing about suede!!!!

    Interesting seeing all you guys in boots.

    Isn’t it 90 degrees everywhere today?

    Finally Friday fellas! It is not 90 degrees here - it is 31 this morning and we actually had a VERY small amount of snow flurries yesterday.... I'd prefer something in between... you know, like actual fall weather! I hope everyone has a good one today as we coast into the weekend!

    Me either - I'm not a giant fan of their Straight pattern. It's not bad, but I'd prefer some taper. Raleigh Denim's "Martin" slim tapered fit is a revelation for me... (and I'm not really very slim)

    My speculation is that if you are going to attract the "new customers" that you want so badly, sneakers seems to be a good second shoe to sell. Younger guys are very likely to pair calf sneakers with more dressy looks. They seem to have taken a chapter right out of the Magnanni hand book. In the upper level sneaker game there are a few price points. $325 to $395. See the Magnanni introductory sneaker below:
    Mannanni 325.jpg
    Or you can go way up the Mountain to around $1380. Berlutti seems to be selling almost as many sneakers as dress shoes these days. Cause you know these will look as good or better with a no break suit and no socks.

    The Portugal made sneakers are just as good as the Magnanni level, especially if they stay in suede, smooth leather is a step down, and hey AE seems to be shooting at the $300 market for all their shoe sales. What I find funny is the $545 Italian shoes that AE has introduced. A decent level Bologna shoe from other makers is exactly $545. Problem is the AE Italian line is Bulky for a Bologna shoe. If you think you want to sell this option the shoes need to be a little more fashion forward and believe it or not thin soles. AE knows what they are trying to do but execution seems to be way off. Now I am off to buy a $1380 sneaker that will last me 10 years as long as I only wear it twice per year. Seems like a great value to me. But at the end of the day, AE would be happy with some add on sales from these lines even if they are only 5% of sales.

    Hey, I just buy stuff and post pics, what y’all do with that info is up to y’all lol.

    One of these days I’m going to combine everything into a “stuff people blame me for” outfit. I’m thinking bourbon Strands, LE moleskins, Barbour, and holding my Margaritaville
