    You should be able to get the same size as long as its the same last. Im no expert, but I dont think, regardless of of the leather, that it will stretch enough to make a difference.

    I was told by AE that the bourbon polish along with bourbon color belt would be released around 15 Nov. Hope this helps.

    Excellent, thanks for the tip. I really want a Manistee in Bourbon to match my Strands.

    I came home from work and was welcomed by the Dalton that was just delivered today. I purchased it for $250 (including tax) from the AE outlet. It looks and feels great! I snapped a photo of it.

    Question though -- does it look bit darker (it's darker in person than in the photo)? For some reason, I remember it being lighter when I tried on a pair at a local Nodstrom. Maybe it was the lighting in Nordstrom? I'm not complaining though :)

    There is variation in the color intensity from pair to pair since they are hand finished, so the pair you tried on at Nordstrom may have been lighter. Just one of the nuances of hand crafted products. I think they look amazing though!

    Nice photo and congrats on the Daltons!
    I have McAllisters and Strands both in Walnut and they are different shades; McAllisters definitely being the darker of the two.

    If I remember correctly, at least Reagan, both Bush's, and Clinton. Probably more further back, but I don't know for sure.

    Any idea if a purchase can use both gift cards? I'm positive I'll spend $120 with AE sometime in the future, but if you can't combine them it takes a little longer to recoup the savings.

    According to the AE website:

    For that same reason we celebrated the 30th Anniversary of the sleek design of our Park Avenue in 2010, continually one of Allen Edmonds' best sellers and the Inauguration Day footwear choice for Presidents Reagan, H.W. Bush, Clinton and G.W. Bush.

    I've been pretty fortunate purchasing several pair of lightly used pairs of AEs. Cliftons, Park Aves and Stockbridges all perfectly serviceable with a lot of life left in them. Just got a pair of Walnut Strands, however, that the original owner must have been allergic to shoe trees. :( Any way to fix a terrible up curl of the sole other than a resole? I've contacted the seller hoping to receive a partial refund (had shoe trees in them in the auction which hid the damage) but haven't heard back yet. (not that I expect to as I just sent him a message a few minutes ago) The price I paid plus standard recrafting ($125) would put them around the price of seconds - and for that price i'd rather HAVE the seconds. I also don't want to get them resoled elsewhere and ruin the ability to recraft later. If I can get a 50% refund and signifigantly reduce the toe curl, they'd be OK to keep around.

    Any thoughts or suggestions? I thought I hit the jackpot as I usually don't see a lot of shoes in my narrow size!
