    My sister works for AE and she just told me the other day that the Independence line have a lambskin lining.
    Better leather in the soles. They come with those classy purple shoebags and actually better boxes.
    Not sure if there are other differences but those are the ones she mentioned.
    Also the only thing better than a great AE sale is the extra 30% I get for family discount.

    Wonder if anyone is planning on a class-action lawsuit about that too.....

    Although it sounds like the pricing you saw may have been a typo, as in my size there's no Bartlett available, but Hopkinson in black and merlot is $265 (still a fantastic price), and Jefferson is the same.

    That said, I have walnut Strands, black PAs, and merlot McAllisters already, and brown shell Strands are on my "eventually" list, so there's really nothing for me in that lineup.

    Independence line, yes? Do you know what you get for this so-called better line? Better leather? Better stitching?

    I love my AE shoes, but now that I have a pair of Herring shoes, I can see that the workmanship in my AE shoes is not quite up to pair with Herring, and the price was comparable. to AE (I paid $332 on sale--regular $450).

    Do you have experience with this line? Are you getting any?
    Yea Independence line. I've heard better leather and it has been a while since I saw them in person. I recall an SF member saying they are on par with Carmina but I cannot comment on that. They are also on a different last.

    I am not getting any as my brown semi-brogues are Carmina, I have black cap toes, and I don't think I'd get enough use out of a wing-tip.

    Looks like 1sts are $330 on the AE website.

    My earlier price must have been fixed by AE.
