Happy Friday to all!

Inaugural wear of Burnished Copper Strand Weaves, purchased a year ago and yet never worn.

It's been so hard to get them on my feet since during the times when the weave is appropriate I usually want to bring out the spectators and walnut Macs instead. Glad I got them out, though!

As we start concluding August maybe Lauren will be able to give us hints about the upcoming trunk show and quarterly drop!

The Neuton has found its way into my work bug out bag. I guess cause it goes with cheap jeans.

Also: nice to see Tony taking care of his AEs (Sanfords maybe. He definitely wears Sanfords at some point. Some other nice AE box shots in other episodes.)

edit: can’t be a Sanford. Wrong welt.

Would love to hear any hints or even see any previews of the possible make-ups like Ashley used to share. @AE_Lauren 🤞 :bounce2:

Watching a little TV this morning. There was a segment where the gentleman in nice suits, got up and a full shot was taken. It is quite obvious that footwear is not even a thought. Exhibit 1:

I could not get a good picture of the second guy, but let’s just say that it was a super cheap fabric “dress” sneaker. Hold on a second, I just got a little nauseated typing the last sentence.
I also am flabbergasted when Mr. Wonderful does YouTube with a suit jacket, shirt, and tie, but keep cutting to him wearing a towel and flip flops below the supposed camera shot.
A page back, we are talking about less leather soles on new offerings and new styles being at best a hybrid sneaker or just a plain old sneaker type of deal.
What I find more interesting is that almost all AE leather soled shoes that I see purchased at my local AE retail store are to younger men, (20 to 30) the older guys are bringing in their old leather shoes for a recraft and then buying a Courtside or some driver.

I just don't get this. The dude is on TV! Can he not afford comfortable shoes that are appropriate for the outfit he's wearing? Even if he was trying to be "fashion forward" and rock white leather sneakers, these are not they.

He's not wearing a tie... they don't have to be stuffy lace ups like an oxford. He could be wearing suede loafers that fit like slippers. They could even have a crepe sole!

They are fishing "the look". It looks adolescent on a grown man. Like they took a suit out of the closet and couldn't find a pair of dress shoes then raided their son's room for any footwear. Oh, these dopey looking sneakers will make me look cool.
NO! YOU LOOK STUPID IN THOSE THINGS!!!!!
At least the Woman on TV are still wearing appropriate looking high-grade dress shoes. Shows integrity and respect on their part.
However, if this stupid looking trend continues it won't be long before we start seeing our favorite anchorwomen showing up on air wearing tennis sneakers!

It isn't a mistake, gentlemen, it is the design.

These guys think that it is cool to wear sneakers with suits. They have thought this since Letterman did it in the 80s. It's something which some people think is an interesting pairing--God knows why, but they do. Plus, look at the colour of that suit: it looks like some cheap polyester crap to go along with his local sports broadcaster vibes.

Also, I will give him credit for at least wearing proper sneakers instead of the middle-school girl white sneakers that cost 700 dollars.
