I am. I’m a legacy and a former “townie”.  The guy who used to be A-E’s 
president was a neighbor of mine.  We all lived “on the bluff”, which is a 
phrase used by the locals to this day that meant we were “rich and powerful” 
because of the “exclusive” area our homes were located in.  At least that what 
a lot of the locals thought.

Remember, this is southeast Wisconsin, home to millions of Dutch and German 
descendants.  The Dutch were the worst, the most tightfisted people I have ever 
known.  By driving a Mercedes, even if it was a 1979 300TD I paid a whopping 
$3,000 for, I was looked upon by a guy who drove a $45,000 4WD 9 passenger 
Suburban as a junior Warren Buffett.

Blinded by the tristar….

And yes, it looks like it’s linked to the Shoebank and the stuff they have 
there.

The one thing I don’t like about A-E is the inconsistency between lasts, 
meaning that one model of shoe might be a 12 EEE for me and another a 13 E, ye 
they both fit.  It makes it especially frustrating when buying online of you 
don’t already have a shoe made on the same last, as it’s a crapshoot whether or 
not it will fit properly.

While I’m all for a good deal, I hate the waiting t find out whether or not the 
shoe will fit.  That’s why I like going to the store over in Whorelando.  I get 
fitted properly and usually get some swag (shoe tree, polish, etc.) out of the 
visit as well.

Dan up too early for a Saturday.
