    It cooled down enough to wear pants, but I think hashtagging #WhiteShoesAtTheBlackShow might be a bit too bold.

    Nice, Might have to get those

    Discount I saw on Dappered, for bigger size gents

    DestinationXL: 25% off Highest Priced Item including Allen Edmonds w/ NEWH

    [​IMG]
    They make these up to size 15?
    The Picks: Flatiron – $251.25 ($325), 5th Street Boots – $262.50 ($350)
    Y’know what they say about a guy with big feet? They say he can get 25% off Allen Edmonds Shoes at DestinationXL.com today if he signs up for their email list. It’s actually 25% off your highest priced item with the code NEWH, and once you sign up (lower right hand corner of their website) you’ll get a confirmation email. Click through from that and you should see the offer appear. Use code NEWH at checkout. And actually, you don’t even have to be a true big foot, since their sizing starts at 10 for their selection of AE shoes. Strangely, there aren’t any half sizes. And the 10 and 11 options might only come in wide widths. But, it’s been awhile since the larger guys in the readership got a hat-tip in their direction. Thanks to Andrew R. for the style tip.

    CXL? I'll have to look into that. Once I log a few more wearings of my shells, I'll have the courage to wear them in the rain. I read that new shells are susceptible to water spots. That would make me sad.

    Congrats on another pair of shell! They are addicting and do not come with a warning label about it either.

    I was nervous at first about saying that I use Renomat to strip the cream but so far it hasn't an issue at all. AE for what ever reason decides to use cream, but Alden and every other company that makes shell products will say to use only a little wax and then very little and seldom. I do not strip all of my shell shoes but let time and brushing take care of it if it is not too bad. But some of them are just loaded with it. I do believe in the Mac method and brushing shell with a heavy layer of cream on top does not allow the oils to come out. And I do feel wax provides more protection than cream from water.
    Awesome! So everyone that wanted a pair took Paul up on his offer and emailed him to see about getting a pair, right?
    This is so true where I am also. And we are in the very small minority.
    Nicely done! I hear you about the freezing rain and today have that with a bunch of that white rain mixed in too :-(

    One of my foul weather shoes I wear happens to be AE cobbler leather, an old pair of Sheltons. Renomat cleans up the creases fairly well but doesn't strip the factory finish off. They can handle a lot of abuse.

    I also wear them as a "fun" shoe. They handle spilled drinks and beer very well also.

    Absolutely perfect and pretty sure you put the first smile on my face all day! And don't forget to tell him how you want your stock options done...

    It is because of YOU that I now own a pair of shell Patriots. The first loafer that I found which has ever fit me correctly, thank you. And because of you I also ordered the Filson wheeled carry on which came 2 days ago. I didn't get tan however but brown to go with my 258 and sportsman bag. My pullman is otter green. No idea why that bag doesn't get any mention in the Filson thread, what a great bag thank you once again.
    Nice score to say the least!! And I hope they do fit you. Of course if they were a 10D I'd likely choke to death just trying to say that :)

    Well that is just a matter of how you treat or wear them. You can protect shell/chromexcel from the weather and have gorgeous dress shoes. Or you can wear them in the weather, and get wonderful patina. The spots go away, and you can (if you don't mind darkening them) sno-seal them to get a beautiful, super-weather-resistant boot. CXL gets a lot more beat up, but also can be buffed to a shine and develops beautiful wear patterns. Unfortunately, it's been a year or two since AE made CXL boots (Bayfields and North Plattes) but maybe they'll come back!

    i think people look the other way when you're looking to pass along a deal at the same price you paid. doesn't seem like that's the case here...

    Last year's anniversary sale was extremely solid. Here's to hoping we get some similar deals!

    You beat me to it! Keep me in mind if they don't fit.

    Thanks.

    I've a couple questions about the Park Ave shells.

    a) Did AE always have PA shells available? I seem to recall looking at their shell cordovan collection a few months ago and not noticing them.
    b) Any issues with PA shell? I was going to go with Carmina (I dislike Alden [​IMG]), but if there aren't any problems with PA shell, I'd rather save the $400 dollars.
