    +1

    I also prefer the color of the Kenwood, though I'm not sure if it's just the particular picture. The beef roll adds a more youthful appearance, which I like.

    would it be acceptable to wear black Van Ness AEs with a navy blue suit in an interview setting?

    I had some AE rimini that would get marked on the toe when you walk because the leather was too soft and would run off the end of the sole. I took them to Allen Edmonds and they let me switch them for shoes of equal value or pay the difference.

    I would think those would be fine in that situation.

    Good luck with your interview.

    That's a crazy deal on the Lombards. Maybe I should double down, lol.

    Huge +1 Really appreciate the PSA. I ordered the 2nd last pair in my size in walnut not too long ago. Looking forward to receiving them.

    Yeah, I have the Riminis as well. The leather finish is completely gone on a narrow strip on the toe box (right in the front). I've only worn them like 4 times. Once to work and the other couple times to church. I'll have to send AE a message. Other than that, I like my West Chesters. They hold up well.

    I recently picked up the Players in Walnut Calf from Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale for $199. I really dig the last. It's not as frumpy as 5 last. :hide: Now who knows where I can score the Players in suede on sale?

    The 5 last is on the long and narrow side. Why would you call it "frumpy"?

    IMO the transition from the vamp to the toe box is awkward on the 5 last. It tapers too quickly. On the Players shoe (2 last I think??) the taper is more elongated and thus more elegant IMO. It's very subtle, but I think I prefer the 2 to the 5.

    Question to all the AE lovers. Im looking to buy my forst pair, maube.the strands in walnut, my question is how does the.sizing run? I am usually 9.5 in everything, my clarks and nike's are 9.5, should I stay with a 9.5 or drop half size down? I ask because I am purchasing online any input would be appreciated
