A very good $34.00 spent. Hotel San Francisco Plaza is a winner.

Not all shell cordovan is made equal, in quality and appearance. It is generally accepted that Horween shell is the best out there by a fair margin, but some of the other tanneries have different colors and properties to their shell.

I would also guess that AE has a good contract with Horween and doesn't realistically sell enough shell to pull from a different source for their 4 offered shell colors. Saying that they would sell more if it was discounted more is a really lame excuse as well considering you could be getting an inferior product that ultimately doesn't make AE much money anyway.
Agreed. Producing the same style shoes with different quality shell from different makers would be a crap shoot for the buyer.

There's just something about a cart full of Natty Strands, fresh from the line that makes me smile. What about you guys?

Hot diggity dog! I wonder if one of those is mine?!?! I was told they are coming along quickly.

When AE gives me shit, I say it. When AE gives me a blue diamond, I will say it.
This boot order was handled and crafted by women because they are perfect. Thank you, Ladies.
Landon just landed. Love the Burgundy. View attachment 1712058
@DawgPound your Daltons are on the way!
Damn, those look good! I was tempted to buy those, but stuck with Plan A. I hope you’re right. Thing is, I’m waiting on three pairs right now. Need some patience. Took some restraint this shopping season to pass on some deals. Enjoy your new boots!

Would a whisky work for you?

Shout out to our friends at Ealdwine in Raleigh!
While I love the folks at Ealdwine, I had ordered a Whiskey Shell Cordovan belt back in July and they never shipped. When I reached out to them recently, Matt apologized and refunded me my money. Not sure if this meant my order was overlooked or they're having a hard time fulfilling orders for Whiskey Shell belts. All the more reason I wish AE would offer matching shell belts during their Trunk Shows! Imagine a Marbled Black or Marbled Dark Cognac shell Cordovan belt!

My hard work put in last night was realized on my feet today! Only had enough time to step away from my desk to snap a photo outside of these extremely dark Burgundy Shell Strands. Hoping they will develop a lighter and more vibrant shade of burgundy, but only time will tell.

In other fun news, got a nice message from @ae_ashley notifying me that there will be a special delivery to look out for on Friday! Could it be....:p

Now that Thanksgiving weekend has come and passed, I'm ready for those sweet sweet trunk show orders to come rolling in... Here's hoping a shipping notification shows up this week or next.
The king has spoken and this is now truth! My apologies to the King for being pessimistic!

Nobody cares about your hotel pics unless they include shots of your fine shoe collection!

Quite frankly, I’m disappointed in you. Are you barefoot? Or worse, wearing Crocs or Magnannis?
Only AE this trip. Just getting a shine outside the Hotel. AE Strand Sneaker.
