at least they are the same color. Someone was clearly wearing unfitted pants with those.
How awful is it that it took me five to ten seconds to discern the exact problem?
Don't feel too bad.....the first thing I noticed was the difference in the cap-toe's, then the number of eyelets, and THEN the fact that one is a balmoral and the other is a blucher, lol
Not online, but I got my walnut bosca belt from nordstrom rack for 20. they usually have a selection
lol...is the other shoe even an AE? AE cortland?
It doesn't appear to have the AE insole. I could also swear that it's on a wider last (the first thing I noticed about it).
At any rate, whoever paid $100 for those is going to be sorely disappointed. But, hey, free shipping?
Out of the three above I would chose the Weybridge but in brown or black (in that order). I don't like the shoe in lighter colors. Some don't like bulled shoes. But in this shoe bulling the toes look great. The shoe (in my opinion) are relatively sleek and has a decent shaped toe.
If you had asked for the three AE's without mentioning any I would have suggested:
Fifth Aves - Black
Strand Cordovan - Brown
Cambridge Cordovan - Burgundy
just got the factory seconds jeffersons today I have to say this one really really good shoes!!! double sole nice leather, it even came with bags. But too bad that I found out that 10.5E is the wrong size for me on the 5 last. I needed a 10.5D/10E. So these are going back to AE...they ran me about $275.
Hope you get the right size/fit. Materials, soles, accessories, etc. won't mean much until you get the size that works. Are you able to go to an AE store? They might be able to help. Good luck!
ya i went to Boston AE and the SA measured my foot and told me I should go with 10.5D or 10E on 5 lasts.
For those of you w/ the Mctavish in black, do you guys mainly just wear them w/ jeans? what about chinos?
Pre-sale was usually two weeks before the actual sale date which was usually reflected online much like the half-yearly. This is Nordstroms bread and butter since its new product (Fall) at the 30% discount; rarely did I see AE's completely sold out since all stores HAD to have at least 1 size run of every item featured in the catalog and so forth. Hope this helps...
You're not the only one who took awhile to spot the problems. Me too!
1. Cap toe
2. No. of eyelets
3. One a Balmoral the other a Bulcher
4. One an AE the other one ???
5. The left shoe looks 1/2 size larger
Love to see the new owner's face when he finally discover the above and more ...
Beautiful Cambridges, sazon, enjoy wearing them. I like those soles, a little different than they used in the past.
Black cordovan is different. I like the way it creases much better than calf's microcreases. Plus, it has a depth of shine that is unique to cordovan.
That sounds great - thanks for the heads-up!
I agree with these recommendations. Plus, they are all on the same 5 last, which is a classic and well-fitting last generally.
Are these fakes or outlet belts? (I'd have said "replica", but the seller is saying they are real AE). Misspelling on the buckles, and anyways I don't see any AE belts with the name on them.
Separate names with a comma.
