    I ordered three pairs of AE's within the past two weeks: Bourbon McAllistes, a pair of snuff suede Neumoks, and a pair of natural tan McTavishes. The Neumoks are insanely comfortable and literally feel like I'm wearing slippers. Pics coming soon...

    bucksfan I agree, it is much like many gardeners. They love their plants to death by using too much water and fertilizer. Too much product is the same thing to leather IMO.

    And I really like your Macneils. Your pictures have cost me a lot of money over the last few years... And thank you! [​IMG]

    OK now that is going TOO FAR! I have been stationed and lived up and down both coasts plus been around the world more than a few times. And IMO New Orleans food can't be beat and is the best there is. I now live where frozen shrimp is thought of as seafood and salt & peper are considered major spices... [​IMG]
    What a beautiful picture, thank you.

    Regarding the fella whose primary purpose in life appears to be raising a stink, this time about Reno. I would think the fact that Horween recommends and sells it should be enough to quash any further need to respond any more of his flies in the ointment:

    they recently starting selling it but they don't use it and recommend Venetian Shoe Cream over Saphir.

    see http://www.styleforum.net/t/274603/nick-v-interviews-nick-horween-horween-leather/0_100

    "What are your favorite products to use for the preservation and maintenance of shell cordovan?
    My standby is neutral Venetian Cream. C.A. Zoes is a great, old Chicago company and they make great stuff. There are so many different great products out there, though. The Saphir line is also great, and I know there are a million different products that people swear by. Everyone has a slightly different preference, so I always encourage people to use the products that give them the appearance they like."

    Any recommendations for a business casual loafer from AE? Leather or suede is fine, and brown color is preferred.

    Yep . . . and now Tristan has posted a link that is from back in 2011 as a refute to you. I wonder if we had this discussion on the choice of which cologne would attract more women - if the stink raised would end up selling?

    He does return his voice mail messages - although it was about 3-4 days after I left mine. And yes, he is extremely busy.

    I own both. I have used both on shell. I prefer Reno for shell. I have used both on calf. I prefer Reno for calf - by a long shot. Quite frankly, I prefer various other products over VSC for calf. Just use what works. If another guy prefers VSC, I have no problem with that.

    Could anyone help me identify this pair of AE loafers? The seller says the code inside the shoe is 3832 but does not remember what model name it is and cannot find any pictures online.

    Looks pretty new considering the type of soles it has. May be a model that hasn't been released yet, i.e., sample/prototype. My first guess would be Patriot.
