    Sure, if:
    (A) not AE
    (B) a better-fitting last than the 1943
    (C) a shade in between brown and bourbon - think really faded brown...

    Yeah. Kristen has worked hard to make sure I get what I want. If anything, I may have proven more accepting of certain issues (knowing I can fix them) than she expected. I've also found my requests to have something brought in for evaluation redundant, as she already had them en route. To make sure I get the most for my money she will even advise I may wait to purchase until an upcoming sale.

    If I'm not mistaken, an SA of legend hails from there?

    Thoughts on McNeil 2.0? Just bought a pair on Nordstrom Rack for 159. Price seemed right for a very nice casual longwing in brown grain and they have an easy return policy.

    A nice shoe if it fits you. The poron insole might make the fit feel a little snugger than expected. Other than that, it's a pretty solid choice.

    To be clear, I don't make a habit of having multiple pairs brought into the store just to sort through them. Thats wasteful, both for AE and for the SA. I think I've only rejected one pair of shoes before this (Kristen dug up a pair of Bayfields, but the lengths of the shafts differed by about an inch, which neither of us knew until we saw them). So even though she knows I'm pretty accepting of seconds, she knew enough that I might have an issue with the order that ended up taking 4 pairs to sort out. You won't get that over the phone. Unless you're :cool2: like Bagley I suppose.

    Not quite, but she did tell me you and @ace13x were down for about 4 pair each. Lol!

    All of you guys have shown massive love for Kirsten and Ashley, so I am here to give shout out for a certain fine lady Nicole at AE Madison Avenue NYC who helped me ordering Bourbon HM and and Bourbon 1A (even though I am in international address). She is so nice, that I am contemplating for some additional orders of Navy Cornwallis. Initially I sent emails to both Ashley and Nicole, but only Nicole responded to my emails.
