Ah, thanks, those are nice too.
Get the Clifton if it fits your needs. Probably my favorite shoe, really versatile. I have it in black and am considering getting it in brown as well.
Anyone else trying to call in an order and getting a busy tone?
Update: finally got through, order is placed! They told me 3-5 days to ship them
Don't leave us hanging, what did you get?
Walnut Mcgraws on their way. If they check out then will order the chocolate suede to go with.
So jealous! j/k Can't wait to see pics and of course fit report! Think there were a few other custom shell Bayfields but haven't seen any pictures of any yet.
If you don't mind brown and a lightly perf toe blucher there was a Townley brown calf in 10D available yesterday, not sure about other sizes but worth checking into IMO. I have the brown shell Townley and love them, they are on the 1 last. They were listed as current however they were a web only model that went on closeout more than a year ago so I would think you could push that one.
Hey guys, I was doing some browsing through the forum and came across these beauties. Anyone out there have the details?
They could seriously be a MTO option sometime soon!
I'm late to the party, hard to stay up with this thread anymore!! I have both the Ashland in #2 shell and the Mitchell in #8 shell. AE hasn't had shell wallets for a few years now so.... I like and carry both wallets. But now that I have had them for awhile if I was stopped on the street by someone with a weapon and told to hand over my wallet the Ashland would go and the Mitchell would stay.
Ashland on left, Mitchell on right. Mitchell is #8 with burgundy CXL lining and contrast stitching.
WOW!! Can't believe I missed seeing these and also your Fifths. They both look fantastic, can't wait to see your 3rd MTO (maybe the 5th Fifth?)
Already tried. They don't have the leather anymore.
The 2/250$ AE Seconds Sale I purchased
From 6pm.com w/ the 15% coupon two days ago, I had purchased these because they were the lowest I had ever seen for Firsts...Plus I had been lusting over a pair for 2 years.
If I love them enough, I may end up putting an order in for Shell Brown, Black, Burgundy.
It was hard choosing what to purchase from the 2/250$ Sale because I already own about 10+ pairs of AEs...so I felt limited a bit. But I've always wanted a Jermyn and now they are going to be discontinued, it was time to pull that trigger. I own the Brown/Brown mesh Strawfuts at the moment, and really enjoy them for summer shoes. 105+ Temps really allows my foot to breath with that mesh. So I figured it wouldnt hurt to get a black pair to go along with it for some staple summer suit shoes.
I personally like my Ashland card holder.
I have a pair of these. Snagged them for $129 almost two years ago.
I was at Nordstrom today buying shoe trees and I purchased AE shoe polish for my new burnished burgundy Clifton's. The SA recommended "Chili" color polish. What do you all think? Does that work best with these shoes? I posted pictures several post back.
Not sure if this has been posted yet, but the 2/250 sale is NOT just at the Jeffersonville location, and in fact is being offered by all Allen Edmonds locations. It was just Jeffersonville that mentioned first.
