I've been inspired! Burgundy shell MacNeils, Mitchell wallet, and form•function•form watchband (on a Timex auto my mother-in-law got me some years back).

How much was the wallet?

If you do get hit, it will be taxes. So 13% since you're in Ontario.

I am Canadian and I have now placed two orders through the shoebank and neither cost me additional upon delivery, ordered only within the last month. Both times shipped via FedEx even though the receipts they emailed said UPS shipping.

I could probably make a fairly complete closeout list from previous lists of seconds, but I don't have one handy right now. As for BB and RL, please see my post below:

Feel free to let me know of any additions or corrections and I can try to keep it up-to-date. Also, if you know which last a given RL model is on, let me know and I'll add it. I'm not positive about the links with question marks; please let me know if you can confirm.

 

Brooks Brothers (differences include Poron insole, combination outsole, and branding):

 

Ralph Lauren:

What were the amounts of your order each time?

She does't want to mislead anyone, and of course wants to help any customers, but can't promise anything because she does't know. 

Aaaaw snap!!!

Are the Macneils shorter in length than the Park Avenue? The PA last is way too narrow and long for my foot.

I have the RL Sandersons in 10.5E in black, brown, and tan.

I received an AE winter catalog in the mail today.  One thing stuck out to me- AE is using the "Strand" and "Neumok" names for matching briefcases and bags.  For example, there's an entire page devoted to different Strand messengers/briefs/duffle bags all in gorgeous walnut calfskin leather.  Similarly, there are several bags coined Neumok in different colors, including navy.  They're a bit pricey, but seem to conform to prices of other leather goods.

 

As an aside, they also have several pairs of denim available at $165.  That seems awfully high to me.

Not necessary AE related, but since someone asked, the Mitchell Shell Cordovan wallet is great, $125 which I think is a great deal

I've seen the bags in person - they're nice and for American-made the prices are not out of line.  As for the denim, yes, overpriced, not to mention spandex (a true deal-breaker for me).

Especially considering AE jeans are not made in the US.

Whats a good shoe to wear with black jeans? I know black and brown are supposedly a no-no, and black jeans and black shoes might be too much, so...burgundy? merlot?

post #34200 of 70737
I'd definitely go with black; but if you are strongly against it, then go burgundy
