 Did you get the golden brown or the darker brown color?
 I didn't realize the sale started that soon.  I can probably wait.  I am leaving the country in the middle of June and was thinking the sale didn't begin until later in the month.
 I've never actually bought from a brick and mortar AE store, nor worked with an SA from one (I do not live near either an AE store or an AE outlet, although I have dealt over the phone with the Jeffersonville outlet people).  Would I, in theory, be able to just call up a random AE store and ask about getting a pair of Maritimes at the $125 price, say, tomorrow?
I notice a lot of sizes/widths are unavailable for the maritime and kirkwood. I assume demand has been much higher than AE expected. Hoping they replenish their stock soon . . .
Agreed, which is anither one of the reasons I am returning them. I will probably pick up a pair of Kirkwoods and a pair of Maritimes during the Father's Day sale.
I know this is an AE thread, but for comparison's sake (since I have a feeling many people will be eyeing up the Kirkwoods if not already doing so), I recently purchased Ralph Lauren's new beefroll penny loafer "boat shoe."  Retails for $289, but currently on sale for $170!   They're beautiful shoes, made of calfskin (I know many prefer CXL for this type of shoe).  Craftsmanship seems spot-on, no complaints whatsoever.  They come in brown and navy (the two colors I...
 I haven't tried them, but am interested in this answer as well.  I usually use either an orthotic or at least a cushioned insert in most of my AE shoes, but would not be doing so with a pair of Maritimes/Kirkwoods (which I am planning on purchasing soon), so it throws my sizing all off anyway.
I'm very glad to hear the recent discussion regarding the Maritime and Kirkwood shoes . . . I've been thinking about getting one of each!   Anyone think we'll see a sale on firsts in these styles for Father's Day?
BTW, does anyone own the Kirkwood (or the Maritime)?  I'm considering a pair (maybe seconds) but I'd like to hear about the quality from those who have them.  I know the AE line is not quite the same as the mainstream stuff.
 Thanks!
