Thank you! I really love balmorals and shortwings in general. They're Alden's Tremont last. The only last used for these shoes... The stock models are color 8 and black shell.
You know I've looked at the color 8 version and it didnt seem to pop at me. But your pair is just stunning. I love short wings as well. Looking to get the C&J Whiskey SWB. But more balmorals are on my list and I may have to revisit the Alden.

Dang your weaseling hide!! I have been eyeing a pair for use when it snows and your picture just screams "BUY ME."
My wife brought snow shoes for me to wear but I took a chance and didn't change into them. The Long Branches worked all 3 days. Tubing, Hiking. Near the summit too. Very surprised and impressed.
Yes I think they cannibalized some suede TS sales by announcing the new shell offerings but I appreciate that they did so
This happened to me. I was considering a couple suede but in the end, I decided to wait and save for some shell. Plus, the waxed suede HM is right up my alley ever since it came out.
I have a rather specific question. Can anyone comment on the differences in fit between the Dalton and the Long Branch, if any. They are both on the 511 last. I tried the Dalton on and found I did not like the look of the wide lace gap. Is there any reason to believe the lace gap would be any different or smaller on the Long Branch?
I bought my local store SA-approved brannock size for the Daltons. Too tight for comfort and I even kept them a month before eventually returning them. Like Klitschko in Hayden.
This led me to size up a half-length for my Long Branch. Heel is good but roomy in the toe box. Not so roomy as if it's hotdog in a Kardashian. I just tighten the laces near the bottom. I sometimes wonder though if my brannock would fit better for the Long Branch.

I'm excited to share that Trenton & Heath will be visiting the Nashville trunk show! We'll be featured on their YouTube Channel speaking about some of the new additions to our collection and our strategy for AE trunk shows going forward!

Stop by if you'd like to meet them in person and say hello! :)

Oddly enough she hasn't been particularly supportive of me dressing nicer. Not against it just doesn't see the need (I didn't change jobs or anything just decided I couldn't dress like I was right out of college anymore).

Overall she is ambivalent to my shoes, thinks I pay way too much for them (That's at the $150 seconds/clearance prices). One of the reasons I use Paypal is that it doesn't show up on the CC. Not sure what she'd say about the 3 bills I just paid for my GS Navy Ottawa's; good thing I'm not going to tell her.
Sounds like we are married to the same woman.

She calls these tassel mocs my "bread shoes".

My loafers are easily the types of shoes she doesn't quite "get", but she's ambivalent towards the rest.
Great color combo with the olive and rust khakis!

Snippet of a conversation from this past weekend.

Queen Mother Weasel: “How about some magical brown Dundee’s that I found in the warehouse in your size?”

Me: “Take my credit card, please!”

**poof** Dundees appear.

I love having those types of conversations.

I think your wife is my wife.

Which could get awkward, but would certainly explain a few things...

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.
