New to me brown suede Saukvilles for this chilly wingtip Wednesday, courtesy of @audog

These have been a goal of mine ever since my order for them was canceled due to them being out of stock. I’ll likely wear them as in through the winter and then try to get them resoled into some leather outsoles.

If anyone is looking for a loden suede pair in 9.5d, let me know!
Wear them in good health my friend.

Red might look ok, they are one of the boots I wish AE would bring back.
+1 on them being a great boot.

I've collected some quotes on having them done by a cobbler with Vibram Christy soles as @Nick V. mentioned. I'll probably go that route and keep the look of the white sole. Bedos will do them for $180, plus do another little repair.

When AE sewed the leather pull tabs on the back of my Eagle Counties, they used a very fine stitch which effectively perforated the leather. I'm good to unlace my boots, but both pull tabs ripped in the first year of ownership. When I get them resoled, I'll get this addressed as well.

All this talk about good shoes/boots for winter got me thinking I should post a picture of my new car's new winter shoes (spoilered in case you're not interested):

And, to keep this very nearly on-topic, here's a spoilered pic of my (non-AE) footwear today:

Love these pics, that olive sole looks like great fun to play with.



And Bourbon Mills ... think I'd like that olive sole on bourbon too!

I will be appreciating AE's 2019 overall body of work for many years to come.

Those are beautiful shoes. In the first photo I thought they were shaved shell.

Simply stunning. Bourbon seems to be a bit of a changeling/chameleon and I think those are some of the best examples I have ever seen
