Had to go do some extensive research for that one, did ya? ;P

I concede belts do fall into the AE appreciation thread. Old fogies like me that follow the more pure belief that AE is a shoe company need to come into the new century and accept AE appreciation can have a wider scope.
... Speaking of, how many of y'all can go full Ferrari/Harley with AE and wear nothing BUT AE items?
you mean nekkid with only shoes and belt on?

So I think you guys beat me to it, but I will just reinforce the good news here...

ALL FACTORY SECOND AND ALL CLEARANCE PRODUCT are 25% off until July 5th.

Shell? Independence? Profila's STRANDMOKS?!

This is not a drill. Happy shopping!
Is the sale still on for tomorrow? Asking for a friend.

Is anyone else struggling to get a pair of AEs without large defects from the factory? I just got 2 pairs of Jeffersons delivered and each had black smudges on the shoes. I've attached a picture.
Is the smudged shoe part of the same pair as is in your avatar? Whatever the case, they look great! Even though they do give me lace-gap envy. ☺

Good news. Quite wide in the toe box. Bad news. The 2072 last only comes in D and E width. It has got to be a hot seller before they invest in the EEE last.
So. Well. I lean more 2E. (11EEE in 65, but 11.5EE over EEE for TTS like 511 when I get really lucky on availability). But, in loafers I tend to go narrow and stretch the hell out of the pinkie area. Will consider.
One last day. Very dangerous.
Shhhhhhhh.

Ok, 4th of July. Here I come! Happy Independence Day, fellas.

Celebrating the day Santa's Elves gained their independence??


Others have put together far more patriotic outfits, but here's my 1776 contribution for the day.

And a photo I took a while back, which features something I think we all might need a little bit more of this Independence Day.

Happy 4th, everyone! Enjoy some BBQ!

Even any used pair I've ever purchased never had a smudge like that, much less any new one. Unless you've worn them (outside) already, I vote for exchanging the pair.

It’s hard to tell from this picture. It looks like it might just be a little dark polish. If you have some cream polish, put some on there and rub it around. It should dissolve that and remove it. It only takes about 30 seconds.
