#1. I love the way you transform your leather shoe eyelets into metal eyelets. That is so damn cool.
#2. I love the Omega and the technological aspects of the movement, but my little girl wrist can't handle the dimensions of that piece. I would need a MAN's wrist to sport it!

Love those Macs a lot. And, I'm really liking that Omega. I keep looking at pictures of Seamasters hoping I'll eventually like them better than a Submariner. My wallet definitely likes the Omega more, but damn the Submariner is so iconic. Seeing this picture definitely helps, though. Definitely.

Why does AE hate dark brown in calf? It's a classic colour. That is rich and beautiful. I'd buy a pair in this colour.

I'm not a fan boy of most of their recent offerings, but I think AE has great dark brown shades, starting with their stellar dark cognac shell, plus mahogany, cigar and dark chili. I think you can get the Strand and the Park in all of those shades right now. Plus they're still offering some models in a coffee, which I guess is more of a mid-brown, but isn't this a pretty good range of dark brown shades?

The old dark brown/burnished dark brown was an amazing color for conservative dress shoes. My PAs are in this color. The brown is so dark that with a navy or gray suit, I can wear them almost as formally as black. To me, that dark brown is a better color for a younger person’s first pair of dress shoes because they are more versatile than black, but still nearly as formal for modern business settings.

Order was placed, but they require 9 weeks for crafting.
I hope that I live longer than 9 weeks... My heart seems a bit weak.
Mine said they'd require 5 weeks for crafting but I got a notice this morning that they shipped them day before yesterday; the day I ordered. Maybe they are working overtime ;)

Here is a dark straight brown that I think AE should always have in at least on Oxford.

I purchased two pairs of AE in walnut. Six months later, I realized that I don't like the walnut color (on me).
The darker brown colors are wonderful and remain my favorite.
