It may be getting cooler where you are but it was hot again today in Los Angeles, so wore the white suede Nomads again today. Yes, I am wearing white socks.

Although my Chinese zodiac sign is a pig, I left plenty for the rest of you.

Some new glamour shots of some of the trunk show samples in natural light! The colors available are showcased SO well here, and I think we can all agree that our creative team outdid themselves here. :)

OMG, the Natty, the Chili Randolphs!!

Wow! That's an excellent presentation - that should certainly help those with limited imaginations.

I need another pair of shell loafers like I need another hole in my head, but the marbled shell Randolphs are incredible looking! And the chili, too.

Maybe room for 1 or 2 more...

If you are getting both, then ... I'll be right behind you :cheers:

I may have expressed that natty fairly quickly moves toward ravello, but I certainly did not discourage a potential shoe purchase, especially a shell cordovan shoe purchase!

There's a lot of rainbow between these two...

Forum Friends,

I had 45 minutes at lunch and since it was such a beautiful day I took a quick ride. Usually I wear black HMs to ride, but given the tight time available today I just went for it. The Hamiltons faired beautifully.

I live at the foot of Mount Timpanogos, so it's just a few minutes to the back country.

Question for the group....

I know we have both guitar experts around here and manufacturing experts around here. I was at my daughter and son in law's today checking out his new to him Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul. He is pretty excited about it, he has always wanted one. I play vinyl much better than I play guitar, but it was a nice guitar.

So, if it makes sense for prominent guitar makers to run an in-house "custom shop", why doesn't AE run one?
What's holding them back? In a word, volume. AE manufactures more than an order of magnitude of units per year than Gibson. In order to sustain volumes that large and remain profitable while offering an affordable product, a significant amount of large batch specialized equipment needs to be in place for each process to yield outputs for many units. Also, automation.

At Gibson's production rates, I'd expect specialized equipment for sure, in support of small batch processing, and little if any automation.

Why does Allen Edmonds continue to use an inferior shipping partner like FedEx? I have two orders that are over a week old and both are sitting in locations for multiple days with no movement. Here's the kicker: One order actually shipped from my local store, 15 minutes away (had I known this I would have just gone there and picked them up). Instead, the boots have now gone from city to city within the FedEx system for about 1.5 weeks. I sent a note to customer service and received a notification that they'll get back to me in....3-5 business days. After 14 AE shoes/boots and 11 AE belts I'm not sure I'm up for ordering more if they can't deliver in a more reasonable time-frame. Sorry, I hadn't intended for my first post to be a rant. In an era where 2-5 day shipping is the norm, waiting almost 2 weeks with no solid delivery info seems outlandish.

These days UPS is not much better. And my daughter told me Amazon prime isn’t what it used to be.

FedEx is terrible I have quit ordering from vendors that use them.

Beautiful mtn scenery there Mr. DP.
Is the boot the brown nubuck? Dang thats nice too. I'd like to see AE add the Hamilton to the Cordovan Collection, Hamilton seems to look good in all materials

to you or anybody: what is the recommended care for nubuck? Do you waterproof them like suede with the nano stuff?
