Is there a place we can register to find out about trunk shows/sales? Is the AE trunk sale in Princeton still happening tomorrow?

The Princeton show was today only. I found out about it here:

Would there be any interest in a MTO group buy? I was thinking of having the "Fifth Street" balmoral boot made up in Brown Shell Cordovan with a natural edge trim and a leather sole. Please let me know so I can post more details.

I really love the fit but the rep said the 0 last was a love it or hate it last and the new 3 last is supposed to be more comfortable as well as more "contemporary." Anyway here are a few pics:
622
Flatiron
622
Larchmont
Additionally he said there was a new version of the Mora which will be available in brown and black that is also on the 3 last. He showed me a pic in a dealer catalog but didn't have a sample at the show.

Nice. Those are some intriguing looking shoes. Thank goodness for the news on the Mora 2.0; I have something to look forward to.

Quick question... is this amount of wrinkling on a Malvern second considered normal?

233

The AE seconds I've bought in the past were indistinguishable (to me) from firsts. But I'm not sure what a Malvern first looks like. This photo is the right shoe; the left has a slight crease but not nearly as noticeable as this one.

Just wondering if this is out of the ordinary. I'm still pretty happy with it for $130 or whatever the Black Friday price was.

I wanted exactly what you are suggesting. I even emailed the CEO of Allen Edmonds to see if he would be willing to make me a MTO with those specifications. I'd be willing to pay for the boot, the MTO fee plus the shell upgrade fee. I figured something like that would cost around $700. I never heard back from Paul so I went ahead and bought the boot in brown calfskin. I'd love to see this boot made but since I already have it I doubt i'd buy another pair in shell. Same thing with the Strands. Since I already have the Strand in Walnut calfskin I can't bring myself to buy the shell version.

I'm ready for Christmas - picked these up this summer on sale. They are the Allen Edmonds Holiday.

Those are cool, but I could only imagine wearing those once or twice a year--and really only to Christmas parties. Enjoy!

I think if those shoes said "Edward Green" on them, that there would be at least a few people arguing that there's nothing wrong with them. I've seen plenty of shoes that are even less wearable than these recieve positive comments on SF.
