    Good pick up. I have the Lombard in Walnut and Burgundy - they are great for wet days. I really liked the Executive Collection - I have the Lombard, Sutter, and Parliament. I don't know why they discontinued them.

    I thought I saw them on an eBay posting. If I ever sell mine I might use the same pics. :embar:

    So is the burgundy different than the merlot color? From the pictures, it looks the same. The only burgundy color have seen before is on shell Cordovan.

    I think they use the terms interchangably. If you look on their website and pick all shoes in "burgundy", you get burgundy and merlot. With their premium polish, they only have merlot, but I'm guessing it is meant for merlot and burgundy.

    When I talked with a customer service rep. a couple weeks ago she indicated that AE has its look book finalized for its Fall and Winter collection but they won't know for sure what is going into production for another couple of months. She indicated that there should be at least one new boots offering in the Winter collection. I'm looking forward to seeing the new casual blutcher style.

    Here are my brown MacNeils today. I fell out of love with these a while back because they looked too frumpy with my business casual clothes. I found out hat they make a great casual shoe with the exaggerated brougeing and double sole

    Ah... what I'm really waiting for is something in suede. Maybe a chocolate captoe like the fifth ave (which they apparently used to produce, according to someone a few hundred posts back) or some snuff tassel loafer with a more pointed toe. I greet every new AE season with great anticipation! [​IMG]

    Why would people pay $145+ when they could get new first quality for $200 with the up coming sale? Good luck anyway.

    It is the seller's decision what price he sets. No need to question the rationale of the price.

    for those of you with chili ae's, do you guys use the same horsehair
    brush for other brown, walnut, burgundy ae's or a different one?

    I use one for light and one for dark colour shoes. I use the light one for my Chili AE.
    However, I seriously think that one horsehair brush is OK for all colours in terms of bluffing.

    Looking at getting my first pair of AE's from allaboutshoes. Looking at the Fifth Avenue for an all around dressy shoe. For sizing, is the AE fit guide (print-out) the most accurate? I just don't want to make a mistake. I am a 9.5 in Cole Haan's though.

    Allaboutshoes should correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think he does returns/exchanges. If that is the case, I would find a way to make sure you are correct about your size before ordering from him.
