    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I've been on the look out for these in the NYC stores and none of them had them last week. Is this recommended for calfskin only or does it also work on Cordovan?


    It almost looks like the same consistency as Saphir cordovan cream. Obviously that's not what it is, but VSC is much more watery than those pictures.

    Works great on shells. I just checked and it looks like all of the New York store are now in stock.

    Great. I'll have to pick up a jar and test it out.

    Whoa awesome, hope to see some more pics once they arrive. Looks like a great pattern and last. AE should bring it back and also make a dover PTB simialr to Alden with that pattern.



    Also, I googled the store the guy got the shoes from and they are going out of business and are having 40%-80% off, looks like only available for shopping in store though so anyone in the Chicago area should go check it out. Altman's Shoes

    Hate to "bump" my own post, but I just wanted to see if anyone else had any insight here.

    Yes. Altman's has been in that location for quite a long time (I want to say 50+ years but I'm not certain) and I know they have a huge stock room. However, they have been steadily deepening their discounts since sometime in September, so there isn't a whole ton left. The good thing is as of last week they had all AE's discounted 40%. They close at the end of the year, so I expect that to go up soon.

    Whoa, did I miss something. These had exposed eyelets? :)

    I was watching those as well. Good pickup! Looks like a plain Townly if you ask me.

    I was watching those too! I think I'm actually going to put my Townley's up on eBay. They're not getting a lot of wear but they are awesome.

    Congrats on those sweet shoes from Altman's @bl@ster!

    Ha. Well be sure to set the market high. I was thinking the same thing.

    I have not had my hands on these but if they are anything like the McAdams they are not made of the normal calf materiel. When I saw the McAdams in store last year they were very stiff and felt cheap vs the normal line

    Thanks for the heads up! I have some townleys but I admit I never go on the Shoebank unless AE is having a % off sale [​IMG]

    Totally agree. The Lexington is similar but I don't like the proportions on the toecap and the 4 pair of eyelets kills it for me.


    Not to worry, my cobbler will be switching out the eyelets post haste! :)

    Cross post from the MTO thread - my First Avenues in Oxblood have arrived. All standard except for the color and the independence lining and insole.

    They're beautiful and they fit great. Pictures below. As a word of warning to others: these boots have a lot of room in the toe and seem to be quite long. Even at 8.5D with the independence lining, they're comfortably roomy. For those who size up on the 5-last or go wide, these might be ideal at your Brannock size.

    I haven't used Alden Leather Protector since I put it on my Brown Shell Townleys. It actually made them so dull that I stopped wearing them. Took them out last night and Mac'ed them up and they look much better. My guess is that the ALP mixed with residual cream and made them dull. I should try it again on some of my shiner shell.
