Rocking my Pattons today. Wish I could have got more fit info for the Landon because I really wanted a pair in marbled. But I settled for a Hamilton in marbled since I know what size should work.

What's everyone's thoughts for pairing the Hamiltons with Jean's since they seem more on the dressy side?

Why all the hate for the sneaker?
My theory is that many of us on the forum started with AE years ago and we have a picture of a company in our head. It's an American company that makes fine dress shoes in the USA. We enjoyed that part of the story when we received complements on our shoes and we felt sad for the others who were happy in their ignorance with square bicycle toe shoes that were made in China or some other far off place. Then changes occurred and some of the AE offerings were made in the DR or some other location. Some of us noticed QC issues that crept in and these things were not in line with our mental picture of the company. The introduction of sneakers is the latest change not in line with our image of the company and we feel it is a negative reflection on the value we place on the brand.

TL;DR. We see AE as a dress shoe company and we don't like change.
