    Was the JR upgrade worth it in your opinion?

    That's the tanning process, not the repair.

    Alden and AE use JR leather on their shell cordovan shoes (but not on their calf shoes), but typically without the JR Stamp.

    AE Shell has the JR stamp on sole, not the gold one, but a regular JR stamp.

    Regards.

    Right now still not sure. I do like the feel of the JR soles better than my other leather soles though. They feel more solid.

    Shoe racks came today after ordering monday. They arent too sturdy, but they look and smell great. Amazing deal for $10, Thanks for the heads up!

    Shoe trees (in small) did not come with the shipment, I assume they are out of stock currently... enjoy the pics! Can you name all 8 pairs?

    Are you able to stack those racks on top of each other? Or do they have to be side by side? Might get some if they can be stacked.

    Each rack is one level, the pics shown here are 2 stacked together. You can either just put them on top of each other or use the provided pegs for stacking

    Last night I added for show trees, a track, and two sets of shoes strings to my cart on the Jos A. Bank mobile webpage (I just about exclusively use my phone for internet now days). This AM I woke up and got the ok from the wife for the purchase (no matter how much money we make, that is the agreement). Went to my cart and they were still discounted, then went to checkout the products, however the prices were not at the discounted prices. So I went to their mobile website again and they were still on sale. I called customer service and after waiting on the line for fifteen minutes, a woman who clearly hated her job answered. I asked her why I was being charged the full amount when the website still has a sale up. She asked me the item numbers. I told her, I don't know them of the top of my head...the shoe rack, two pairs of laces, and four shoe trees. She told me "without the item numbers I can't help you". Ok... I put her on speaker while I looked up the item numbers using my phone. Done. "They aren't on sale anymore". I Told her that on site they were STILL on sell that very moment. "Well they aren't". Then I told her to change the site. She told me "you aren't getting a discount." I told her that I didn't want to do business with JAB any more...I just wanted them to not false advertise because somebody less vigilant will purchase thinking that they are getting a deal and are going to be pissed of when they find out that they were mislead. "Well, the mobile site sometimes takes 24hr to update after changes are made to the main site". Goodbye. Click.

    With as many places there are to buy cheap suits I am glad that Jos A. Bank has narrowed my search and saved me some time.

    SF, I come to you seeking advice regarding blue Neumoks for "business casual"

    Typically I will wear dress pants and a button down, with either cap toes or wingtips. Ties and suits, maybe once a week, if that. Anyways, more than half the people in my office are not exactly "up to speed" with fit, style, etc... so for Friday's, I'm not too concerned how "business casual" I am. I would like to put together an outfit where I can use my Neumoks. I would be taking the red laces off and putting the tan ones on.

    I do know that all of my pants are definitely too dressy to be worn with Neumoks. I have some dress shirts that will work, so I guess I am looking for some pant suggestions as well as what color belt I should be wearing. I don't own khakis/chinos, so I guess that would be a good start rather than dress slacks.

    Thoughts?

    Yes - that is true - my AE shells have that "non-gold" JR stamp too. I was referencing the "gold" JR stamp as that is the JR stamp referenced in the post to which I was responding..

    Hello,

    Long time AE fan, though I only own one pair. With the upcoming nordstrom sale I am looking to add to my collection. I wear a 9e in the McAllister (the shoe that won me over to AE). I was wondering what this might translate for shoe size for the following:

    Kenilworth (how do people like this shoe)
    Delray
    Norwich

    Thank you very much
