Sorry bout that
Picked up a couple of pairs of Neumoks during the recent sale...one in Distressed Brown Leather and the other in Dark Brown Snuff Suede...
I have the Brooks Newmok. It's a great-looking shoe. Enjoy.
I don't need to sit on the board to see something that is blindingly obvious.
Over the next 2-5 years you will gradually witness an increase in lines that are outsourced overseas. By 2018 I'd wager the company as a whole will be doing roughly 30-50% of their total manufacturing through outsourced facilities.
There's no need trying to explain. Just wait and see. We'll find out soon enough who is right and who is wrong.
By the way, how long was RL made in the US and Italy before they began outsourcing to Asia? Brooks Bros? Shall I go on?
Yep. It only take a bit of common sense if you know business and a little about M&A.
I think you are way off base and presenting a lot of your personal assumptions as fact
Only time will tell, but for now, I'm pretty pleased with the current MTO deals
Allen Edmonds Harrison MTO in Black Shell Cordovan
I finally got my MTO Harrison's. I didn't do anything too fancy, just changed the upper from the supple leather to shell cordovan. The results are absolutely amazing. The black shell cordovan is absolutely flawless. Here is a sneak peak.
Hope that you enjoy them as much as I do!
The idea that AE would lose a "HUGE customer base" by going offshore is silly and naive. The majority of people (here and outside of the forums) would continue to buy unless there was a noticeable change in quality and/or price. Over-excited customers always claim that they'll go elsewhere if the company does "X," but they rarely come even close do fulfilling those threats. It's called "throwing a tantrum."
Those are freakin amazing, dubs!!!!!
Thanks Tif! They look ALOT better in person. Those pics don't even begin to do them justice... They are uber shiny too...
Great great MTO dubs, wow! Makes me want black shell...
Those are downright stunning. I like my black shell Leeds, and I've seen some nice black shell Park Avenues, but those are handily the nicest black shell US-made shoes I've ever seen.
I had this same problem a month ago. I had to email customer service and have them reset my password to rectify it.
I ordered an 8.5 an think I need to size up to a 9. Is that one that you ordered?
This might be the sexiest shoe I've seen in this thread.
Actually, yes. I wear an 8.5D/E in the 5-65 (I wear an 8.5D, but am confident an E would fit pretty well also). From all the reviews of them not fitting well, I ordered an 8.5EEE, 9D, 9EEE, and 9.5D. I assumed an 8.5D simply wouldn't work. Again, they haven't arrived yet, but it's possible I'll have something that works well for you. I'll certainly get back to you. First step is getting to login again.
