I need a new pair of shoes and have been indulging in AE's lately- any chance of having another Forum discount on the Gryffin or Northampton in time for Fall so I can mix it up a bit?   : )
Can anyone tell me what, if anything, is special about AE belts to put them in the $100 range? Love the shoes, but I am a bit picky and looking at the stamped buckles and normal leathers I think I'm looking at maybe a 50 dollar belt when I look at them.

So I am considering an alternative...   Thanks for any input!
