    Now, Nordstrom sends my third replacement out for the Park Avenues that were defective.They sent me a pair of black Cliftons by accident. I am going to lose my mind.

    Hey everyone,

    I found some AE boots on eBay that are seconds and have a tear through the leather towards the top of the tongue, is it fixable at all? Doesn't have to necessarily look too pretty.

    I didn't know there was a store 34th street. Is it new/open already?

    Yeah, it's rather tucked away. Just opened about a year ago, I think...

    Hi Team,

    Would prefer the Portland or Bayfield in brown cordovan?
    I wear an E width in the 1-last, so I'm afraid the Bayfield might be too bulbous as it is relatively wide in its D width already.

    Thanks for the heads up. I'd buy a red pair but Amazon doesn't understand they are made in America and are trying to charge $67 in import fees to Canada.

    Yes, there is both a brown suede and brown leather version.

    Edit: I see what you mean now. The leather version mistakenly has 1 pic of the snuff suede shoe.

    Alternative B. Return Magnannis ASAP. Next, consider how often you'd actually be wearing black cap-toes. If not so often, then swap your Park Avs for a pair of Strands. In terms of color/models, my preference would be as follows:
    1. Walnut Strand
    2. Brown Fifth Avenue
    3. Burgundy Sanford
    This said though, you will only have cap-toes in your rotation. Honestly, I'd probably swap Fifth Avenue for a pair of Short- or Long Wing Bluchers.

    Call them. They should be able to fix this for you manually.

    Thanks for the input! Any reason you say the bolded? Are they really that much lower on the quality totem pole?

    Yeah, I know what you're thinking. Honestly I feel like I need to keep black plain oxfords sort of by default, but I'd really rather have a pair of brown wingtips, with Strands being the next best alternative. I wear dress shoes to work 5 days a week (and they'll be worn sometimes on weekends with jeans or chinos, which is another plus for the Strands), but I rarely if ever need to wear a black suit. They [black cap-toes] are just very convenient to have around and I don't have a single pair.

    If I return the mags, I might just swap the Park Aves anyways and pick up a cheap pair of rubber soled black cap toes as a backup shoe/for wet days.

    Thanks for the tip. I signed up and received my coupon over 30 days ago though so it's expired and I'll pass. Shouldn't be spending right now anyway.
