    Recent acquisitions. Brand new Mctavish in distressed brown. Cambridge in burgundy shell, a few months old--Christmas present from me to me. Walnut Jefferson, picked up in May. I sat them up on the hood of the datemobile and snapped a few pictures.

    Mctavish--I have 3 pairs now: Natural, black, and now distressed brown. I prefer double oak soles, Norwich/Lubbock are my favorite AE shoes, Mctavish is a close second. Interestingly, the distressed brown looked like they were tinted a pleasing olive green when I took them out of the box under fluorescent lights but they look like a normal brown under natural sunlight or incandescent lights.

    The shell Cambridges are the Lincolns of my shoe fleet--my brown shell Norwiches are my Cadillacs.

    The walnut Jeffersons--the lambskin lining is markedly soft. Try on something from the Independence line, your feet will thank you.

    E Walnut Lombards, which are similar to AE Players, except that this pair of Lombards has my three favorite features, rubber soles, rubber heels,[​IMG]

    and Poiron insoles. Others out there my age (or older) might remember when many dress shoes came with flat laces. I have replaced the round AE laces with flat waxed dress laces from shoelacesexpress.com.

    Do you guys think an AE store would price match/ship the Neumoks from the Nordstrom sale but in red?

    Congrats. They resemble my brown antibes Park Ave's in that light:

    Planning on visiting the AE store in the city tomorrow.

    Not sure what I'm going to come home with, but on my shortlist I have the following:

    Cambridge (or burgundy calf alternates)
    Shell Patriot
    Boat shoes (Center Fielder / Eastport)
    Shell Strand
    snuff Neumok


    Do the stores keep inventory of shell shoes on hand or is anything made with shell a special order through AE?

    They went made to order with the shell about a year ago, but they may have old stock of the shell shoes. Good luck!

    This might be terrible advice, but start hunting for your next pair. Takes your mind off of it, and then eventually voila it shows up.

    hang in there, the advice above is sound IMO. This too shall pass and it will be on to the next one.

    Thanks guys! I appreciate it. About to pull the trigger on one or two MTO's but really wanting my Bayfields. I feel like if I could just get a straight answer about their status it would be as bad. A month ago they were in final finishing, then a week later they had not been started and would be a few weeks and now I have asked three times just for an update and can't seem to get it...

    Weirdest thing ever: a pair of walnut shell Bayfields arrived today. I never ordered them, but they're perfect and my size. How in the world does something like that happen?
