    Those were from the clearance section on the website. Note they are dark gray not black but they might work as dark shoes. Call them.

    Oh, got it.
    Well, I went to the AE store without realizing that the oxfords were on sale online only. The ones they had in store were all beat up. [​IMG]

    One of the benefits of the AE's is that they are Made in America, which should align with your dad's position as minister (as the shoes won't be made in a sweatshop somewhere in Asia or South America)

    How do you achieve Dubiously Honored, Clag?

    AE looks good. Too bad I didn't have time to try on any.

    Rudals, keep in mind that different lasts from different manufacturers fit differently. There is a chance that whatever you end up buying will not fit well and may need to be returned. Dangers of buying shoes online / buying shoes in person for someone else.
