Changed into Fultons to get a haircut after work. A recent thrift find, they’re basically a Badlands made with Horween Saddlehorn leather.

Day 2 of the @ae_ashley celebration continues with these bad boys. When TS2019 was announced, I figured I'd jump on a bourbon pair of HMs. But, once I saw the bourbon in person, it just didn't work for me (I've since done a 180 on the color, based on all the awesome photos fellow weasels posted after the show). So, I went with Plan B and ordered a pair in burgundy. Couldn't be happier with my choice. For realz.

Also, when TS2019 was announced and I heard that Ashley was going to be there, I figured I should go and see if she really was as awesome as she seemed on the phone. When I met her in person, I could confirm that she's even better. Seriously, give her a call and get on her list. You will not regret it.

Before TS2019, I never quite "got" all the love for shell. To be honest, I'm more of a CXL guy. After TS2019, I'm still not sure that I "get" shell completely. But, I can say that I completely "get" burgundy shell HMs. I love these boots, and based on the compliments I get from all different folks, I guess that love is justified.

At some point, AE should add these to their regular shell lineup. In fact, it's pretty much a crime that they aren't there already. In the meanwhile, I'm just going to enjoy the fact that there's maybe a half dozen of us out there in the real world who have them in this color. Of course, not everyone also has them on this lovely corporate carpet. I'll never get tired of looking at these boots . . . or this carpet.

Agreed, I'm a member of the TS2019 Burg Higgies club as well, also ordered through Ashley but only on the phone.

I missed this somehow, but it's an interesting look on how the factory has changed some. They have machines that cut the leather now. Kass is still working there, so I was happy to see that.


Also noticed this near the end of the video and made me smile. :D

Happy Friday gentleman (and @ae_ashley ).

Congrats on making it through another week. For some, I’m sure it felt like a long one after the short holiday week.

With all the shell love going on, thought I would continue it with some beautiful natty shell Daltons that made it my way from @BackInTheJox (thanks for sharing).

I have to say, I grabbed my navy First Aves, but they have bloomed like crazy and I didn’t have time to brush them this morning.

Have a great weekend!

P S A - $10 off $150 or more

It seems like raise is always doing some sort of promo, But at 15% off, I have to stock up for whatever the next trunk show might be. Maybe iris shell will be in the cards - or red suede...who knows.

Nomads are the ultimate travel boot/shoe. Wearing mine traveling with my son to Florida today. I’ll be buying chocolate suede from the Nordstrom anniversary sale.

I swore I’d never post to this thread again, ‘cause you guys make me spend way too much money. But seeing some of these boots (@mreams99, I’m looking at you), now I think my Amex is about to get a work out.

But, this was an interesting video. I guess they’re selling enough of the speedwelt line to justify poron insole production day.

If I had to guess based on the production board and what was being cut & sewn, they appear to have centralized Bench Welt (e.g. regular AE’s that we buy) uppers production in Port Washington (which would explain the expensive new automated cutters).

And before it comes up (because it always comes up), same wooden shank at 6:23 in this late 40’s AE production video:

As Steve from Bedo’s has said, some models have ‘em, some don’t.

Also lol @ Steve nondescriptly inspecting the bin full of shoes awaiting recrafts.
