Hello Men--

My I know your thoughts on the Bartlett v. the Strand? It's been awhile since I've eyeballed a Bartlett in the wild, but as I recall, there somehow seemed to be a very subtle difference between the 65 and the 201 lasts that made the Bartlett a little bit less appealing stylistically than the Strand. Curious to know your thought(s).

Fit is the primary difference. Which last works best for your foot?

For me it’s the difference in fit that kills it. 201 has a higher cone; too much volume and the throat interferes with my ankles.
Others can’t do the 65 for the opposite reasons

Going with Bradley today as it looks like big snow over the next few days.

To my eye, the 201 is the 65 with a higher instep, and I find the Bartlett even more appealing stylistically than the Strand (which opinion may be somewhat influenced by the fact that the 201 is a much better fit for my high instep feet than the 65).

While the restaurant is now seating 50%. There is a 30 minute wait.

We would be further apart if they just sat everyone.

Anyone have recommendations for portable business card holders? I switched wallets and no longer have space for my business cards and usually only meet vendors in a meeting environment (will have my backpack). Interested to hear if anyone has any experience using a business card wallet/holder.
A colleague gifted me a coach one.

@ae_ashley

The stitching on the captoe on my TS19.1 pairs is busted. Can AE fix this? $725 for a boot that can't last 2 years isn't very good.
Had a similar issue on a shell pair after 6+ years - AE paid for shipping both ways and resolved my stitching issue. Good luck!
