    Found a pair of AE Greenwich wholecuts on EBay in sz14. It was a happy day. Only a couple more wholecuts to find.

    OptoDoc, I have the Rutledge in walnut. As some have posted here, the walnut isn't the traditional walnut color of most AE shoes. I hope the pics I upload will show it clearly. I have to say that wearing this shoe, it's the most comfortable shoe I've worn. Very soft leather and fits like a glove. I love my Pakr Avenues and my McAllisters too. But this is even better. I'd like to get them in black next. Or perhaps the Harrison in black? Anyone have the Harrison and any feedback?

    I wish my Opto doc dressed as nicely as I bet you do. I like when I see a professional who looks the part!

    I'll get to shining this evening.

    Looks like you are right. I measured my Fifth Streets over the weekend and they are 4.25" across the sole. Not sure why my 5 last shoes feel a bit narrower at the widest part of the shoe.

    Finally! In Atlanta on business and they have an Allen Edmonds store!! Having a really hard time deciding between a Franciscan in Walnut, and a Flatiron in Bourbon- will either of these look good with charcoal and navy, or is the darker bourbon a better bet?

    On an unrelated note, can someone tell me if my venerable JM's captoes pictured below are Goodyear welted? They certainly look like it...

    Brooks Brothers sells many pairs of AEs that are not advertised as such:


    And of course, some that are branded as such. I originally compiled this link at the Dappered.com forums.

    Thanks for the update. Do you have a picture of creasing there? My ridge is actually convex instead of concave, so I wouldn't expect it to crease there. It actually feels like there's too much structure underneath that is pushing out.

    As for the sole, mine was a regular leather sole, so I don't think it's it's a problem with the combination tap sole.

    The BB Strand in dark brown is a very rich brown in person. Much better than the photos.

    Hi DG, here are a couple pics of mine. I love them, and of the 9 pair of AE I own, they are no doubt one of my favorites. Look amazing with a navy suit, but I also wear them with a charcoal suit, grey slacks, etc

    For your consideration, please see the following picture of my Brown Waxy Leather Long Branches. The were worn on holiday in Banff this past weekend. The harshest element they were exposed to was light rain. They turn this whitish, distressed-looking shade each time they're exposed to adverse weather. They did it in the snow this winter as well.

    Thoughts? The other boot has been treated with Renovateur. It always does the trick, but I would like to know if there's something I can treat them with to prevent this down the road.

    Thanks.

    I took this today but it's probably not detailed enough to see well but if you look at the left foot you can see it start to crease on the same line as the stitching. It doesn't do this on the right shoe but my left is larger so that could have something to do with it. It makes it seem like the toe is a bit raised. It's not the most perfect place for a crease but that's where the shoe wants to crease. My walnut with leather sole in the same size only creases along the vamp.

    Looks like you're on the same hunt as I am! I picked up a pair of Greenwich's myself a few weeks ago. Now I'm looking for the Manhattan in chili or brown, Westgate in black and Fairfax in merlot.
