    VSC, Renovateour and cordovan cream will cost you like $75. Well worth having all around.

    I had an order together at the hanger project with Renovateour, cordovan cream and a deer bone. I chickened out because I am afraid to put anything on my shells.

    BTW I thought for sure someone would have snapped up my cappuccino PTBs before I got a chance to think twice about it...

    Yeah, if you were getting rid of your AE cordovan because you couldn't get them to shine then you should read the mac method ;)

    I'm definitely interested in the PATRICK method for calfskin...

    Anybody on here know when the Van Nuys went out, or what last it's on? A place near me has them in Chili for $275 -- they've been sitting there since AEs listed at $309, based on the tag on the bottom.

    Those of you living in the NYC area, Paul will be at the new store on west 43rd street on monday 11/4 from 5-7. If you haven't gotten a notification from the store, you should certainly contact them… could be worth it!

    Edit: west 43rd

    E thread folks, I need your help.

    I found these Magnannis at Nordstrom Rack the other day for $130:

    http://www.shermanbrothers.com/images/mg/mg-13347-blls.jpg

    They're Bologna construction; leather soled. Beautiful shoes - prettier than Park Aves IMHO - though from what I understand not quite A-E level quality-wise.


    I have a yet-unworn pair of Brooks Park Ave seconds I got last month from the 2/$250 thing. I talked to A-E's Jville store, and they'll let me send them back in exchange for another pair of closeout seconds. Other than these two black shoes, I have:

    A-E/Brooks Walnut 5ths
    A-E Burgundy Sanfords (blucher brogues)


    Alternative A: keep the Magnannis; swap the Park Aves for Brooks Brown Strands, giving me a shoe in every color. Basically I'd be paying $130 to downgrade from PAs to the Magnanni oxford and get a pair of Strands seconds.

    Alternative B: keep the PAs, return the Magnannis - save a nice chunk of change and end up with a higher quality black shoe; hold out for brown until the next AE sale.
