Just have to figure out whether to go with 13C or 13D, whether to go with bourbon or chocolate, and whether to get a mini lug sole or dainite (if that's an option), or perhaps leather + v-tread (which I love on my BB strands). I think dainite might be the right choice.

 

ETA: a bourbon Eagle County with a dainite sole would be dressy enough to wear with a blazer + tie, right?

I'm sure sure how dressy the dainite sole would be, but the combo tap sole would certainly fit the bill.  I'm considering a chocolate calf w/ combo tap sole right now... $197 is an incredible price.

Do you guys think AE's manistee dress belts will go on sale this Black Friday?

post #34339 of 70737
All belts were on sale last Black Friday...think I got some for like $40 or something.

I love those manistee belts. My walnut belt is my favorite.

I'm wearing a burgundy manistee belt today. They are indeed very nice. I also have the regular AE belts in brown and black but the manistee is much better IMO.

I thought Dainite would be just as dressy as leather with the exception that the edges are black. Isn't that the whole point: a durable weatherproof sole that like looks like a black leather sole?

E.g., the Haight boot:

I'm pretty sure I'm set on bourbon. Just wondering about all of the other myriad options (upper Stitching,welt color/type, edge Dressing, wheeled edge, etc). Trying to create a boot that can be worn with a tie and blazer as well as casually.

Around $40? They are currently $115. :butbut:

He more than likely means he got belt seconds for $40.

The belt seconds is something I haven't heard about but need to add a few belts to my collection. I'd be interested in more info on discounted belts.
post #34346 of 70737
Yes they were "seconds" though I can't see anything wrong with them.

Gave another round of spit shining to my rutledges.  Still not where I want them but getting there.  Took a pic of the AE family, excluding my boots.

Do Swims ever go on sale?  I'd like a buy a pair before the really nasty winter weather gets here.

Instead of dreaming on, friend, I contacted Allison about ordering a custom MTO (disclaimer- I've already had one MTO made for me, so maybe this influenced things):

 

My email to her sent at 4:17 pm:

Hi Allison,
 

First off, happy Thanksgiving!  I'm interested in a pair of the Eagle County (I'm sure you've received several requests today) StyleForum MTO with chocolate calf, either a combo tap sole or dainite sole, and flat welt.  Would this qualify for the $197 sale price?

Thanks

 

Her response sent at 5:59pm (not sure why she said good morning):

 

 

Good Morning Jon,

 

Yes we could honor the sale price of $197.00. I am out of the office on Friday, but I will be back in on Monday at 9:30AM CST if you would like to discuss further.

 

Also, was your wife still interested in having  a pair of shoes made up?

 

Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving to you as well,  

 

Allison Meyer

 

 

Still think I (or we) need to dream on?

She still owes me an email from Monday.  She's never been quite prompt about responding to me.
