    Couple pics of the Walnut fifths - per request of zerostyle.

    The pants (all three) are slightly long, havent hemmed them yet but plan to take them up .5 to 1 inch or so.

    Please excuse the gf's dorm room floor. I know the speckled tile is magnificent but please try to contain yourselves.

    its difficult to explain just looking at the picture, but the angle on the carmina's toe seems less stubby and the length of the cap looks longer, again making the toe look more elongated which tends to go more nicely with the chisel toe.

    The angle of the picture doesn't help the rutledge's cause either.

    Newmora finally came in to the AE store i frequent:

    They look great in person, nice sleek last, and interestingly (unlike the Larchmont & Flatiron) it has a standard leather insole. Construction was similar to the old Mora, with the only complaint being that the buckles feel a bit thin. I regret that they did not have enough sizes for me to try my usual size. So i will have to comment on fit later. Enjoy. :slayer:

    Another look at the Rutledge:

    They only had it in black, i was really hoping to finally see the burnished brown. But it looks like a slick shoe, and i would consider it for a black dress shoe if it did not have so many sections with the ripple edges, especially on the cap toe and the tongue. :confused:

    I saw it today also at the AE store. Since it was new, they also didn't have it in my size on hand. I did tried on the over sized one that they had just to get a rough feel for it. I had them order one in black for me to properly try out. Since it's on the #3 last, hopefully it will fit like the Larchmont model that I do have.

    The toe is a little too boxy for my taste

    I took mine on their maiden voyage today, quite nice.
    I agree ripple edge in the tongue was really weird, note how shoes in the independence collection don't indicate where they were made.

    As far as the sale goes - i can't find any info on what shoes might be discounted. I've been googling periodically for news like every day...

    I can't get excited about this sale. I think you can find some strands and other AE captoe styles for 30% off or so all day at Nordstrom rack. It has to be around 40% off or so before I even think about adding to my AE collection. What about that 2 for $300 deal at regular Nordies? That is something I'll get excited about.:nodding:

    I doubt you'll ever find strands or park avenues at Nordstrom Rack. Only their unpopular models get there, with the exception of the elusive suede 5th aves

    Fair enough, I already have the usual subjects from Nordstrom, so I'm not looking for that sale. I am not sold on seconds yet, so I'm looking forward to this sale. That and the fact that my SA is willing to discount from whatever models I want, hehe... :D

    I mentioned this a few weeks ago - I have and old better pair on Sheltons. I wanted to replace them as they appear too beat to recraft. I used them for inclimate weather. I was told my old pair was made with Cobblers's leather. My new pair came in with calf leather. I called the AE (2nd hand) SA and was told that Cobbler's leather was no longer used because of complaints about the leather. The complaints were that if they get a little scratch it would be hard to cover. I did notice this my old pair has some scratches on the black section that I'm unable to hide with polish. Also my pair must be a very senior version a the toe area of the shoe sits lower (more flat). Yours seem to be shaped and look like my new pair other than yours being Cobbler's leather and mine being calf. Another question please - its appears from your picture that the creases apperar to be lessed on the treated pair of shoes. Is that the case?

    I have not seen the PA's I'm pretty sure. For sure, I've seen the Hale, Hastings and the hinsdale. And, let's not forget the fairfax (in black and chili!). I don't even look at the loafers since they're not my thing. As far as them being seconds, I have not gone over them with a fine tooth comb, but they seem fine. They are not worn at the soles. I know that regular nordies has a generous return policy and I would certainly remember if they were worn at the soles.

    Damn it, might have to jump on some Merlot McAllisters. I'm building my shoe game and while I have the Neumoks, I could use a traditional wingtip.
