Whenever I go to reset my account password on AE site I never get the email and it's not even in my spam folder either.

edit: Well I had to make a new account and got an additional 15% off of some new PA I needed. Not bad for $213 shipped.
As-if I needed another reason to check the AE website.

We got several inches of snow, so I went with a lugged boot today.
Yuma, brown bison.

Nice moccasin stitch boots - and Bison is a bonus! I didn't have my current appreciation for this style when those were available. I've now filled my moccasin hole with offerings from others.

I hope people are up for another version of "What would you choose and why?"
(I wish there was a way to put a poll in an existing thread)

If you could only have 2 Allen Edmonds dress shoes that needed to cover all of your dress-up wardrobe occasions (tux, suit, sport coat and tie for work, weddings, funerals, etc.) what would they be?

The first shoe is a given: black Park Avenue

What is your second shoe, in what color, and why that one?:
  • Park Avenue, Fifth Avenue, Strand
  • Cigar, Coffee, Dark Chili, Mahogany, Oxblood, Walnut

Personally, I am very torn. Limited to 2 shoes Walnut is out immediately because it is the least versatile color IMHO. I really like Oxblood but think it may be more limited than Chili or Mahogany or even Coffee so its a pass as well. I like the Strand but it is too casual if I can only have 2 dress shoes. Maybe a Fifth Avenue when I am only wearing a sport coat (or when I am not wearing a navy or gray suit). My choices would be:

Safe choice:
  • Park Avenue - black
  • Park Avenue - coffee
Not as safe choice:
  • Park Avenue - black
  • Fifth Avenue - dark chili
Fun choice
  • Park Avenue - black
  • Strand - Cigar

I would choose a chili Strand as #2.

Oxblood goes with both charcoal and navy suits. Since you said for dress-up wardrobe then I'd stay with PA. However, my oxblood FA have gotten me more compliments than any other shoe and can be worn with a suit if you wish.

I’d be tempted to skip black altogether (I have absolutely worn navy wholecuts with a tux), but a black PA is not my style.
1. Black Rutledge
2. Strand in burgundy shell (burg / chili goes with everything)

These Sheltons popped up on the Shoebank a few days ago. I called the Port Washington Shoebank location to ask about them. I talked with Issabel and learned that they had come back from a closed store in Italy (weird). I love my current Sheltons so I had to buy - particularly at 30% off. Final price was $102.90.

For seconds from 2011 or so, they look great. Ordered on Friday morning, delivered Sunday morning!

Whoa, a denim couch cover?! Props man.



In other news, who else is still waiting on their trunk show order?
