    I have been breaking my new daltons in around the house. My left pincky has pressure from the shoe and causing some discomfort and the other shoe is fine. I called AE and they said that I could bring them in to get stretched. Does anyone have any experience with ae's shoe stretching?

    My dad bought me the Byron and the Stockbridge a while back when I started my current career and I hadn't given shoes much thought since then. This year I took an interest in looking nicer, found this site and began trying to upgrade my shoe collection.

    Over the last few months I have been buying and trying on many different shoes trying to find the right fit. Love the Strand, Rutledge and Delray but could not get a proper fit so I slipped an Alden in there! My office is very casual so I have been leaning towards shoes that will work in this enviornment...a few shoes for trousers and SC's and a few for chinos/jeans etc...

    I just got the Sanford and Malvern yesterday and have a Patriot in brown on the way...my next shoe will be Burgundy (shell?) then done with shoes for a while!

    Here is my meager and growing collection

    Nice steal! The 222 can be a tough fit. Congratulations.

    Hey guys, I just bought a pair of Wilberts. I am entering the professional world and I thought it would be a good investment.

    Is there anything I should know on how to take care of these? I would like make my investment last as long as possible!



    Thanks.

    Sure, let them rest for a day between wearings (2+ days even better) and use shoe trees.

    Jason, how did you find them for $117? The best I found was $143 and when I checked for my size they were $334......

    I guess I'll play. Here's my collection. All of these have been acquired within the last 1.5 years (!)

    Only the Strands and Fairfax were purchased new (and neither for full retail . . . got the Strands from Nordstrom sale and Fairfax from Nordstrom Rack). The rest were all very gently used at $50-100 each.

    Back Row: McAllister (black), Delray (chili), Bradley (brown), Bradley (black)
    Front Row: Fairfax (chili), Strand (walnut), Delray (chili), Lasalle (brown)

    Am planning on getting rid of the Bradleys soon as I hardly ever wear them.

    Nice collection. What size are the Bradleys?

    Can someone comment on which of the two are less formal between the Strand and McAllister? To me the McAllister seems more formal but it is a wingtip while the Strand is a cap toe.

    McAllister is very slightly less formal is my guess. They both are heavily brogued but captoe is typically more formal than a wingtip

    No one bought the new grey Park Avenues? I was very interested to see how these looked on someone. I also had an idea that they might look good to layer in some blue shoe polish, giving them a slight blue sheen, especially on the cap-toe. Sound interesting or no?
