I got bored of my coffee Loafers very quickly (colour, not the style) but I love my Oxblood Macneils a little more every time I wear them.
Is this the same grey used for the sneaker trunk show strands? Was hoping to get an idea of how dark they will be.
Allen Edmonds is often taken for granted and seems to be too often criticized for quality issues. I joined the AE club about 7 years ago, thanks to the "dappered.com" blog. It has been a consistently good to excellent experience: Great leather, comfortable shoes out of the box. I have seen instances where the finish/coloring could have been better on some tan shoes...
...AE is a tough one to figure these days but I still say the Strand is simply the best designed shoe...
While I have mostly owned Alden x Brooks Brothers for many years and known about AE for probably just as long, it was only in the past 24 months I have actually ordered/purchased anything from AE. As such, I feel like I missed the Golden Age of AE before it became merely a machine to chase trends and increase profits for their hedge fund and now corporate overlords. It would be interesting to see what the company could be, or go back to, if the employees bought it and made it private again.AE is tough to figure out, the foray into athletic shoe like things, production offshore, then back to US. I think I'll stick to Alden, I know what I'm getting, know where it's made, and no tennis shoes.
