How are your neumora's holdin up?
Looks like I got lucky. I went into the AE store on Saturday and got my order put in for a pair of Dundees in burgundy shell and they applied the sale price. Glad i did that instead of waiting like I wanted to.
Double post. Oops
I have one horse-hair brush I use on all my shoes/boots.
No daubers - that's what rags are for.
I talked to my local AE store and they said they could not price match Amazon on the Delrays. The SA said he might be able to if the Delrays were not currently on sale, but this fact left him unable to do anything. Too bad. I wanted to give AE my business, but I'm not going to pay $275 for Delrays when I can get them shipped to my door for $199.
Mine are holding up great and very comfortable. Styling is spot on to me and extra points for the nicely burnished toe. Only issue is the slightly imperfect creasing but I'm OK with it.
Last week I was in WI for work so I dropped by the Brookfield Shoebank. I am in need of a good winter boot and had been looking at the Bayfield and Cascade. The North Platte would be perfect but it has been discontinued for some time.
Their system showed one CXL Bayfield in my size for $167 at another location. For that price I was sold. I found out this morning that their inventory was off and they do not any Bayfields in my size. I was disappointed until my sales associate Adam offered to have a pair made for me and will still honor the sale price.
This is my third pair of AE's and I will continue to buy their products given their excellent service and quality.
Is the only mentionable difference between Brooks Strand and the regular Strand the rubber sole?
The Urban Daddy sale actually didn't end until 5 so I managed to get the Bourbon Amsterdams!
I read that the insole is different too.
What shoe is that in your sig box?
GQ trend follower alert!
Yes, the insoles on brooks brothers are more cushioned and comfortable. Well worth the small premium IMO.
Haha, Nah. I don't read GQ. I first saw Lino Ieluzzi wear them unbuckled and though it looked cool!
You got double lucky purchasing them plus getting almost $100 off, hope you bought a lottery ticket too! I purchased my walnut shell Strands on the last day not knowing that it was the last chance to get them. Very often I think how lucky I was to get them when I put them on. I love my #8 shell Dundee's and wore them again today. I hope you enjoy yours as well.
Nice boot and great price. I agree AE CS and quality is hard to beat and which is one of the reasons why I keep going back to them. I have the Bayfield in CXL and black calf, along with the Cascade and like them all for really bad winter weather. I regret not picking the North Platte when it was available.
Your posts were a big part of me choosing AE for boots. I do a lot of hunting, fishing, hiking, shooting etc and see you do too. I figure if they work for you they will for me as well. I'm really looking forward to breaking them in.
