The AE Store had this new Italian loafer model:


The croc pattern is nicely done, the calf is quite soft like their other Italian models, and it had those covered channel soles, which are my favorite. Will probably pic these up soon too, since my brown Veronas are on their last legs finally...

Done. Just grabbed the last pair of Walnut Shell Daltons. $317 shipped to my door.

Did you email the shoe bank or one of the outlets? I think the shoe bank is swamped.

Also waiting nervously for email reply on something.  Was all I could do to just order one...but I did order four non-shell pairs the other day...

I emailed the shoe bank. Who else should I email? Addresses?

I pretty much deal exclusively with Kristal at the Jville outlet via email. She is top notch.

 

Sadly (not really), I'm leaving for a two week trip to Asia this weekend, so it'll be a while till I get to see/wear them. 

 

I see the Neumoks will be $199 during the end of Sept. sale. I tried the navy ones on at the store last week and swore those would be my next pair. I didn't anticipate this cordovan sale. 

 

I will definitely be broke by October.

Always call when dealing with limited inventory.  When there's only a couple pairs left in your size, you'll miss out if you wait for an e-mail.

IMHO, burgundy/oxblood/merlot/etc... Are the most versatile color of shoes for my particular job/wardrobe... It always bothered me that AE didn't make the strand (one of my favorites) in burgundy calf (I can't wear shell...)... I ended up finding a pair of BNIB distressed brown Kiowa's on the bay that were so badly miss-matched & discolored, I ended up getting them for $30 shipped! I didn't take any before pictures, or of any of the steps (didn't think this would actually work!), but here's what I did:
1. Stripped off the brown color with a combination of acetone, deglazer & 000 steel wool
2. I bought fiebings ox blood dye, and applied 2 coats, brushed well & then polished (3 coats) with AE merlot cream...

Since they're kiowas, they do have the lug sole, but the idea is to wear them as my rainy day shoes until a recraft is in order... Then replace with standard leather soles... Not too bad for a total of $45 invested (especially considering the only way to get a "real" pair would be MTO)!

I probably have some touching up to do that I will see in full sunlight tomorrow, but was pleased enough with the results, I thought I would share...



 

I am quite impressed that you were able to get that result from a pair of Kiowas.  Nice job.

You can call or email any store for a list of seconds in your size.  You can even contact 1st Quality stores for the list.  Just be sure to tell them you want a list of "2nds" company wide.

I think you should expect to be disappointed. I wear a 32 waist and have some belts that are a 32, some that are a 34. I bought a couple of these AE sale belts on STP in size 32 (no 34 available) and they were way too small.

Don't you usually have to size up 2 sizes on belts?

I'm with you JS. I've contemplated getting these for awhile and was disappointed when they were not included in the Nordstrom Anniversary sale as they were last year. These will be my first split-toe and first chili colored shoe.

This is standard, yes. However, I am actually a 31 (but don't own many 31 pants) so my perfect belt size would be 33 (a size not offered frequently). Depending on the manufacturer, a 32 or 34 will fit me best.

I believe that is the general rule of thumb.

I was going to point out the same. You need to buy a size larger than your pant size. 

 

Edit: It is 2 sizes, but the numbers usually go in 2's.
