    Hey all, quick question regarding putting a topy/vibram sole on a pair of AEs? I have a pair of well-used McTavishs that I really love. I am currently living in Turkey so can't send them in easily/cheaply to get recrafted when the time comes. Would I be able to put a rubber sole on the existing, used sole? Or does it need a fresh and clean sole?

    All Amok questions:

    I own a pair of Amoks in brown suede, purchased last summer. They do squeak, but after a while it's not really noticeable. I sized same in Amok as shoes in 5 last (PA, Strand, etc.)

    Hope that helps.

    Those belts look very decent, but I admit I don't have any. I do, however, order Robert Talbot ties from Hansen's. Generally speaking they sell high quality merchandise.

    Those are sharp. You could hang them on the tree as ornaments to get a little more use out of them during the Christmas season.

    Wow, they are very similar to the ones in your avatar. You must have a very good collection to feel the need to add those to the rotation :happy:.


    Thanks for your reply. I'm a bit curious if the ones I quoted are 100% calfskin and where they are made.

    EDIT: It says the belts are kipskin. What is that exactly?

    EDIT #2: Kipskin from Google: From young adult cows, this soft leather is somewhere in between calfskin and cowhide..

    Not sure if I should go with these or AE calfskin belts...

    Anyone have any reviews on the wide basic belt? They look fine but on AE the reviews are pretty negative.

    Just called my local Allen Edmonds outlet in Birmingham and got a pair of Elgin's for $99 as per their doorbusters sale. All of their discontinued shoes are $99 through 10pm tomorrow night. I'm interested in maybe another pair or two during this sale, if anyone can help me think of some of their other discontinued models I would appreciate it. I currently have the Daltons in walnut, Maxfield in chili, Pomona in a dark brown, and now Strand in tan. If you have any other recommendations, feel free to let me know.

    Yes I have the Manistee and chose it because partly of the good reviews. I might add the wide basic but then the chocolate suede players will be $ 99. Anyone have these? Could be good at that price for jeans and beater shoes.

    I also have a few of these belts - walnut, brown, chili & black - very happy with all 4.
    - one thing I might add is that since there are 2 belt keepers it sometimes keeps you from centering your belt because it gets stuck at the belt loop on your pants. What I did to fix that was to remove the outer belt keeper.

    Do you guys have the brown or dark brown wide belt? Wondering which will go better with brown Delray.
