    Don't get me wrong - the player was a fantastic looking shoe - but a lot of people had fitment issues, and that would really suck to get these great shoes that don't fit you right. No, there are no other options for a short wing blucher from AE (currently)

    I was eyeing those too, glad someone from the forum got them. The answer is no, AE does not replace the insoles, but they do replace the cork.

    Strange...I've been eyeing the same style. The Marlows are beautiful but pricey. Can AE do a MTO using the player style? I left Allison a vmail but I'm at the end of a long line apparently. I would love the Players in a brown shell with natural welt. Can they do wheeled edges on these?

    My vote would be the Jefferson. The independence series is worth it in my opinion, extremely comfortable. So much so that I think I am going to add the lining to some MTO Cambridges.

    I asked about the Players and she said yes. I called her towards the end of her day as I was leaving work and she picked up on the second try :). The Marlows get much cheaper during the RL private sale, but I believe it's a mad dash to get them.

    Not sure about the wheeled edges on the JR sole. I'm still teetering on the edge [​IMG]

    Cool. I might go to a AE store and double check the 2 last to see how it fits. Thanks for the tips. So is it any extra for the Independence lining vs regualr lining or $505 is $505 no matter the options?

    I was planning on doing something similar, except brown Chromexcel. What are the alabaster laces?

    No extra charge for the independence line "upgrades"

    Damn those are awesome. I hope they weren't in my size.

    Great find!

    This is just the color similar to the color of the AE's natural welt.

    I think the one-price MTO option is the best thing about this MTO deal. $500 is already a ridiculously good deal on MTO, but by taking price out of the equation, they really encourage you to just go crazy, and get *exactly* what you want. They could easily be charging us an extra $50 for JR double soles, and a lot of us would pay it.

    8 weeks (or more, of course) can't get here soon enough.
