Sorry to break from the current discussion, but I'd like to post a photo of my latest AM acquisition. A pair of "Nassim Oxford in Anthracite Museum", part of Y by Yeossal made by AM. This pair is on Mayfair 2 last with Argentum welted construction.

I was on the fence for a long while for this pair .... but as it turned out, I like it so much more than I expected. Just awesome stuff.

i did not know that Y is made by AM? - is that true for all Y shoes?
Some yes, some no. You have to read their product description - only those explicitly mentioned marked as “Made in Italy by Antonio Meccariello” are made by AM.

His grey black patina is indeed stunning. I heard that he may have new additions to his Aeris line in pearl grey after this summer...

They look gorgeous!! I was thinking in purchase one pair from Yeossal brand, but I declined because I read some people failed with the size chart of Yeossal, his own size chart seem to be a little confusing for some people and I don’t want to risk to be one of those 😜

Really?? When i asked they told me they will no providing more aeries line for a while... and I think this is because they are focusing in growing her own brand 🤔

You made some assumptions. 😉

Which website has the widest and growing range of Aeris now? Is it Yeossal, Sabot, Medallion, or... 🤪🤪🤪

medallion has by far the most selection. check out their Taobao (the amazon of china) store for more selection. most seem to be around $675 USD

Actually, without making anyone unhappy, I was trying to say: if one is just after Aeris (Goodyear-welted), and doesn't require a refined finishing touch, then the remaining pairs of Aeris on Yeossal, or the expanding range on Meccariello official site remain the budget choice :p

Aeris - 2 models available (SGD 384.80/ ~USD 285 ex-VAT)

Aeris - 8 models available (EUR 356.56 - 409.84/ ~USD 395.58 - 454.70 ex-VAT)

Then of course, if one is residing in Mainland China, then the tax-inclusive price is similar. Buying from Medallion could even be slightly cheaper due to the very low shipping cost (~ EUR 10).

Medallion Collection - 8 models available (RMB 4680/ ~USD 664.50 ex-VAT, no additional tax if purchasing from China)

Medallion has the widest range but most of the AMs are priced very high. Maybe due to taxes?
I discussed with Kevin Li (CEO) of Medallion before. He explained that the Medallion collection (their preferred name) is distinct from Aeris because of the finishing and last choices - which in many cases are similar to Argentum Dux offerings. And he claimed that due to these changes, they also had to pay an accordingly higher price to AM compared to standard Aeris offerings.

In summary, I would rank the RTW offerings from AM as below:

Older Aeris -> Current Aeris# -> Medallion Collection (2019)^ / New Aeris (2019/20)` -> Argentum Dux -> Argentum Handwelted* / Medallion Titanus* -> RTW Aurum

# Some leather quality issues in the past have been fixed
^ Premium finishing
` Further improved leather
* Depending on the model and leather chosen
