I got my orders placed. Chili Carlyle on chili welt with single JR and a marbled chili 5th Street on chili welt with single JR.

This trunk show has been the cheapest yet for me.

I purchased $1040 worth of gift cards for only $890, and I got the $75 off each pair with the coupon.

There are still some AE gift cards on Raise.com at an approximate 12% discount per card for those who are trying to pinch their pennies.
Were you able to use them in-store? Raise says valid online only.

The Chandler has my eyes, especially in natural, but not sure how they’d fit. HM’s in cordovan fit me perfectly. However, Cyrus which is the same last my ankle is swimming.

guess that’s all to say I’ll probably sit it out. Or the next week or two I’ll change my mind…who knows.

Yeah. I have a similar issue with the 1757, but the other way. There used to be a budget Chelsea on it, which fit in my 10.5D; but the HM fits me in 10D. So I won’t risk the chandler.

Got my order in. Natty Higgins on double JR, brown welt. I am going to beat the crap out of them.

If you don't have a home store please consider the Roseville CA store. Logan and Lauren are both great. They deserve your trunk show orders far more than the website does.
Thank you so much, friend! Btw, I'll call you on Monday about the Courtside order. Can't wait to see pics of your Natty Higgins!

I also got married last weekend, but not sure I have great shoe pics. Rudolphs for the rehearsal dinner, black calf Parks for the wedding itself. Will post if I find them. I paired them with a Polo Ralph Lauren navy suit and a shepherds check Hober tie. Classy, classy, classy.
Well, congrats on the wedding!! A momentus event that deserves comment. Nothing like a good wife. Come to think of it, nothing like a bad wife, either. I attribute the lack of comments on such a happy event to everyone having visions of TS shell dancing in their head. Mazel tov!

good morning fellas, ordering Natty Chandlers today for something different - already have burgundy Dundees, so figure a lighter hue will be great!

Congrats! Over 14 years ago, I got married in a lot less comfortable shoes:

At one time AE sold nice alabaster laces and others in different colors. Now the website just shows brown and black. Can anyone point me in the direction of some round 30 or 32 inch alabaster laces?

Went to Allen Edmonds SF and worked with Ray. It took a while to get my entire order entered into the computer, but fingers crossed that the wonderful people in Port Washington produce some beauties!
  • Green Strand, Dark Brown Welt, Single JR
  • Navy Strand, Dark Brown Welt, Single JR
  • Marbled Chili Strand, Chili Welt, Single JR
  • Natural Fifth Street, Antique Welt, Double JR
  • Chili Fifth Street, Chili Welt, Double JR
  • Dark Cognac Fifth Street, Dark Brown Welt, Double JR
  • Marbled Chili Fifth Street, Antique Welt, Double JR
I'm just concerned now about the actual order since the receipt doesn't mention some of the details, so idk what grounds I have against receiving something that was not within the specs that I defined.
Wow! Amazing choices! THANK YOU for placing your order with Ray in SF. Rest assured, Ray has been with the brand for many years, and he won't steer you wrong.

DM me your email or phone number, I'll be able to pull up your order and confirm some details if you like. My system won't show me the welt color changes, but I can see the sole changes made on the order. I'm figuring out if there's a way to see welt color changes after the order is placed. Since our system switched over in March of this year, there's still a few kinks we're working out.

Wow! great choices. Wise move to jump all over that Fifth Street. I got a Chili 5 Street a couple of years ago, its a terrific dress Boot. That dark brown 5 Street will work great with jacket and tie, actually many different jacket-tie combos, if you wear jackets and ties at work.
