    LOL, it's amazing how often a thread with a clear stated agenda gets derailed on SF. The link is a classic SF bitch-fest for sure :plain:

    I was thinking the same thing!

    Just an FYI, I'm in the midst of my Friday conference calls and of course multi-tasking by polishing up my Kenilworth and Tresana. I'll post some pics when I finish up.

    This is with no additional conditioner or polish, just a good brushing and buffing with microfiber cloth. They still look pretty good, but I'll probably go ahead and clean them up with renovateur and a couple coats of wax.

    I probably averaged wearing these once a week since purchase, late Sept I think.

    My SA just ordered in a pair of AE Vinci, from the Seven line, for me yesterday. I should have them next week sometime, and pics to follow. I'm really liking the Seven line, too bad it's basically out the door for them now.

    Your polish pics are a service to this thread Mr. Patrick_B. I look forward to ogling them with envy :slayer:

    In appreciation of my Walnut AEs, does anyone have a good option for a Walnut colored belt that isn't AEs wide dress belt? I have a wide dress, however I only use it for jeans, as it is too wide of a look for my bean pole dress pants.

    I bought this Brooks Brothers belt in "Cognac" recently:

    http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCat...Id=1380709&Parent_Id=228&default_color=Cognac

    for my new Allen Edmonds Player's Shoe in walnut.Should be a close enough match. I would let you know how they are but FedEx can't pull their heads out of their asses and get it delivered to me. Will report when I get it.

    How do you like the walnut Players? Noob to SF and just made them my first pair of AEs. Really looking forward to their arrival.

    Gorgeous shoes. Last runs a bit narrow though.

    I second this. The Player is definitely toward the top of the AE food chain, in my opinion. Wonderfully proportioned wing tip.

    I got this belt for my AE McAllisters from Narragansett Leathers (2nd from left):

    I'm a little nervous about putting my picture on the internet, so don't be harsh!

    Anyway, they were a good match I think.

    John W. Nordstrom brand belts have a tan color that is a dead ringer for AE's Walnut. In fact, it's a better match than the AE walnut wide dress belt that I thought I needed to buy.

    I wear a 14D in most other makes, so I ordered my Players in a 14EEE. Should do the trick.

    It does look pretty good/close. On an unrelated note, I am terribly upset to read that Narragansett Leather no longer takes orders for their briefcases. I loved it when I saw it for the first time and always figured I'd try one out one day. I guess that's not going to happen any time soon. It looked like such a nice piece, especially at that price point. I'm tempted to drive up there and see if they have any factory seconds or anything like that.
