    Anyone have any informaion on the AE Richmond longwing? I have not been able to find much other than it was on the 7-last. Anyone know when it was produced or discontinued? I found a nice deal on a burgundy pair that may need recrafting.

    Thank you.

    I like it. Looks like it toned down the yellow hues just slightly. Correct me if I'm wrong but did it take care of some staining issues as well? Was that the renomat? Question is: are you happy with the results? ;)

    I've been known to use my wife's hairdryer on duty boots to get the wax to soften, but again I don't think I'd do this on anything but black.

    Yes, the renomat took the stains off with almost no effort. I am happy enough. I had wanted to antique or patina the shoes, but didn't know what I was doing. Need to study up and try again later, but for now, I think the results are pretty good.

    Thanks for the pic. I like the Carlyle and it looks like you have a nicely finished pair.

    Those look good, better than the PA in my opinion. How is your fit relative to other AE lasts? A little gray and drizzly out so why not gray flannel and an EC in merlot. [​IMG]

    Very comfortable fit. I also have the Rogue in walnut, which is probably my favorite AE shoe. Not quite as tight across the top as my 65 last or 333 last shoes. These are the only balmorals that I can get to completely close without discomfort.

    Sorry to repost, but if anyone can recommend where I could source some 24" laces to replace the alabaster tan laces on my AE Gobi chukkas, that'd be great. I'm looking for a dark brown for my tan saddle, but all they sell in 24" is the alabaster tan. Any third party vendors you recommend?

    I used a place through Amazon called TZ laces

    Perfect! That looks like exactly what I need. I tried a search earlier in Amazon but those never popped up. I only found the OrthoStep ones but those look too textured.

    I totally second using TZ laces. I've nabbed a couple of flat waxed ones from them for using on my Long Branch and Darmstadt. The thick, rounded laces were just chewing up the leather on the tongue and under the eyelets. Flat ones worked out way better. Have not tried any of their thin, round ones, but the quality on the laces I have used has been great.

    Correct, it's on the B34. At first, I thought it was a strange fit, but it's growing on me. Dropped down 1/2 size. There's tons of volume.

    Just an fyi but TZ is located overseas so it might take some time to get the laces.... Otherwise they really have great products.

    The ones I ordered are 3/32" or 2.5mm, are those the thin ones?

    Honestly? I really can't remember. Hoping someone else can chime in. I don't remember what thickness standard AE laces are and don't want to send you off down the wrong path.
