    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

    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!

    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...

    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 ... [​IMG]

    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.
