In this case, it was the last minute or so. They went for $142. Steal of a deal.

Call up your favourite SA to enquire! Also, I don't think the Jeffersonville 20% applies because they are on closeout.

Thanks for the heads-up! It would be really tempting if they had snuff suede, as I don't really care for the tan or brogue. Maybe someone else will take advantage of this info though. smile.gif

Thought I'd take a couple comparison shots of Townley vs. Clifton. The Clifton is much sleeker (8 last vs. 1 last). Alas, the Cliftons are not shell....

Anyone else started skipping any post involved in the Great Dominican Republic Debate?

 

Sure wish I had gotten those Townleys! baldy[1].gif

KMD, thanks for posting that pic, makes me even more glad that i gave in an ordered my pair. i love the clifton for business wear, but was hoping that the townley would be more jeans-appropriate. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Just purchased the bourbon Strands.  I'm leaning toward colored laces.  Any recommendations on color?

I really like the lime green laces Sizzle posted here, but navy blue would look awesome as well.

Neither of these shed a very favorable light on the practice of manufacturing shoes in any place other than the USA , England and perhaps Italy but what really is amazing is the number of people seem to belive that the motivation for doing so could be anything other than profit pure and simple .
I suppose the acceptance of such a thing is only to be expected in an age when companies no longer make " things " but rather make " money" .
I saw a film clip the other night of Oliver Stone expressing his dismay over the fact that rather than being an object of derision Gorden Gekko turned out to be a role model for a generation of MBA's. We are all aware of where thats gotten us.
Mediahound I just wanted to let you know that whether I agree with you or not I do appreciate your introducing this matter here and motivatig me to do a little reseach into something I was not aware of .
MWS thanks for the links

This picture tempts me to buy bourbon strands just so I can put on pink laces!

Re-asking my question on Bourbon shoes: If I hit them with Reno'Mat and then polish them back up with Walnut (as AE recommends), am I going to lose some of/all of the tonality of the shoe?

Reason I ask is that there are some scuffs and other problem spots and I'm hesitant to even use anything for fear of losing the great color variation.

Sniping in the last few minutes happens frequently.  I always bid the maximum I am comfortable with and watch how it unfolds.  Most of the awesome items I've found on EBay have involved someone trying to snipe them in the last minute.

In my experience renomat is fairly non aggresive in comparison to most solvents ,like say acetone, on factory applied dyes .I have found you really have to " git after it"to do any damage . Try it in a non conspicuious area like the inside heel quarter but im pretty sure it will do what you want without a problem. That really is what it is made to do

Get the box set from AE. Only 19.99 right now and you'll have them all. The bourbon strands look great with blue, green, and purple. Those are the laces I wear most often with mine depending on shirt, etc.

Try it just with wax.  Or, work on the problem spots with tinted wax or cream.  Let them have their personality.

Thanks for the heads up, just ordered a pair of Tan Suede Amoks. Do they charge tax on out of state phone orders?
