"The shoes are actually back at AE! After 1st wearing, the center point of one of the tips came loose. The stitching didn't go all the way to the point. Brought them to the store, and they were sent back to the recrafting division for repair"

OK - just had to post someplace where GUYS would understand (I've been told 'You're such a girl' when it comes to shoes) My AE McNeil Color #8 Cordovan wingtips came in.  Had to order them, as there wasn't a pair in 9.5 EEE anywhere in the country.  Was told '5 weeks', but got them in 3 or 4.  Man do they FIT well , which is why I didn't go with the Alden - the different lasts.  Tried both on (they had the AE in BLACK, but) and for MY feet the AE fit better Happy Dance, except for the fact it…See More

Guys NOT Shining shoes

Riding the train and subway every day for the first time since 2008, I've come to realize that men, even those that wear leather shoes, don't polish them anymore!Come on folks, it makes them last longer, and look a lot better, and only takes a few minutes.Heck, you can get it done at Penn Station for $3, and in the building I work in,  the J&M shoe store does it free for customers. Walk in wearing a pair of their shoes, they do themOK - I'm NOT talking guys wearing pebble grain shoes here,…See More
