    Care Instructions

    STEP 1: Using a damp cloth or sponge, lather our Saddle Soap and apply onto leather to clean and restore its natural oils.

    STEP 2: Moisturize the shoes with our Cream Polish to make them supple and soft, following instructions on the product.

    STEP 3: Condition the shoes with our Speed Polish, protecting them from dirt, rain and snow.

    STEP 4: Take our Heel dressing applicator and apply to the edge of the heel and sole.

    STEP 5: Apply our Leather Lotion as needed for added protection and polish in between cleanings. Use our Horsehair Shine Brush to buff shoes to a desired shine.

    *For camo printed leather, simply rub our Leather Lotion onto print with our Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth as needed and wipe smudges or dirt away with a damp cloth.

    Ask & Answer
    Jefferson 2.0 Wingtip Oxford is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 67.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful These are my new favorite pair of shoes. The merlot color is absolutely beautiful. As pretty as it appears on screen, it's even more rich and impressive in person. Allen Edmonds appears to be discontinuing the color, but it would be wise to reconsider. Merlot is a much more unique and elegant burgundy than the oxblood hue that has superseded it in AE's product line. The leather is of a considerably higher-quality than the regular McAllister model and the lambskin lining is a nice and appreciated touch. The Jefferson is worth the premium over the McAllister at full-price and it's a no-brainer on clearance. The shoes themselves arrived flawless and have been comfortable from the first wear.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome shoe This is an awesome shoe. Great leather. The inside comfort of the shoe is top of the line. So comfortable. If you have trouble with 65 lasts shoes try this one. Higher cone is good for those of us with high arches.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best of 4 AE shoes I love everything about my merlot Jeffs. They were comfy right out of the box, have a rich color, and I got a dynamite sale. The 201 last fits me like a glove. I have park aves, strands, and McAllisters, but the merlot Jeff is my favorite shoe.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value First of all, I purchased this pair on sale. Not the regular price. So for the price I paid, this pair exceeds my expectation. The leather was not too rigid and did not require any 'real' break-in. When I first put it on I was thinking it will be too tight. But that was not the case. I was able to wear this pair for a full 12 hour day in the office, walking around and between floors etc. Well worth the price.

    What is Profila binding and how does it differ from the older style of binding?

    I keep hearing about this new type of binding on the collar, but I'm not sure exactly what it looks like. Can you explain, please?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The use of each binding method on the top collar is simply a styling difference and the binding methods depend on the style. The more traditional binding method is rolled binding, which you can find on the Park Avenue. The Profila binding has been used for several years, and it's a method currently used on the Independence Collection. It's a raw edge that requires more precision and it's a small detail that offers a more refined and versatile look. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    Jefferson 2.0 Merlot , what Color "COLORED shoelace" do you recommend to go along with this to make it Pop and give it a more casual look?

    Asked by: Big Poppa
    Depends on the occasion. You can substitute orange laces around October and November, I would personally use black and maybe try on white laces during Christmas time! Even Bright Green Laces! Have fun with it! People will notice!

    premium leather conditioner or leather lotion?

    I was at my local AE shop talking with an employee and he recommended I use premium leather conditioner on the merlot Jefferson 2.0 instead of leather lotion. He also advised against regularly polishing this leather if at all but said I could polish my new strands daily if I’d like. I’m partial to a matte finish, but I’m wondering if you can expand on the difference between his recommendations versus what you have listed under product care for the Jefferson 2.0. Thanks
    Asked by: Newton
    I've had A.E employees give horrible advice. One told me to use a wax based polish on my Higgins mill which ruined the shoe. You can use saddle soap, followed by saphir shoe cream in the closest color you can find. Then you can use a rag and brush to remove excess and buff. If you'd like you can start adding a wax based polish to the toe and get a mirror shine.

    Laces for a black Jefferson 2.0 wingtip

    What replacement laces should I order for my new Jefferson 2.0 black wingtips...size 10.5 D?
    Asked by: Aaron
    Depends on the time of year. You can pull off bright orange, green, white, and black with these as far as I know. Depends on the outfit and your tie!

    How does the width compare to the Mctavish? I wear a 10.5 D but on some of your lasts it is tight. On others like the Mctavish it is generous.
    Asked by: Tfad
    The McTavish was constructed on the 65 last which is the longest in length of all of our lasts and tends to be known for its long, narrow look. The Jefferson 2.0 is constructed on the 201 last has fuller forefoot width for more comfort but with a slight chisel to the toe profile, that complements our iconic 65 last. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    Can not find Matching belt for 2.0 Wingtip Oxfords in MERLOT. Please help!

    Hi, I ordered Jefferson 2.0 Wingtip Oxfords in MERLOT color and I was trying to find a belt with matching color. I found one belt called “Wide Basic Dress Belt” which comes in 39535 Merlot Burnished Calf, but it does not have my size (my pants size is 35 -36). Do you offer any other dress belts in Merlot color? Is oxblood color close to merlot? I see Clay Ave Belt in Oxblood, but I am afraid it will not match the color of my new shoes..
    Asked by: SpecialK
    I got the Manistee belt in Oxblood and it was a perfect match; closer than my belt and shoes in walnut. I’m sure there’s some variation between production runs but I’m very happy with what I got.

    are these made of full grain leather?

    Asked by: v
    They should be unless specified on the website. Remember It's Calfskin so it's going to be thinner and softer than cow leather. They are also lined with lamb leather.

    Is there any reason as to why the tongue does not contain any perforations such as in the Dalton or Cornwallis?

    The Jefferson/Bartlett and the McAllister/Strand could use some perforation at the part of the tongue that is exposed just like the Cornwallis or Dalton.
    Asked by: cthbk
    You really think this shoe is lacking in perfing or broguing? They would be "over-the-top" if they had any more perfing on the tongue. The cornwallis is much more understated shoe, w/out a cap or wingtips, and the dalton is a boot, so it has room for more perfing/broguing. That's why these don't have have or NEED any more decoration.

    Sole: single or double? Insole: poron?

    Two questions: 1. Is sole single or double leather thickness? 2. Does insole include poron padding layer?
    Asked by: WharfRat
    The Jefferson 2.0 style features a Single Oak Leather Sole and our traditional cork footbed with a leather lined insole, it does not have a Poron insole. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
