The Black PAs at my local rack are $199.

The reason I asked about the warranty was a thread here titled, Don't but AE at the rack or something like that. The poster said AE refused to warranty his shoe because they were seconds.

Nordstrom has a sale right after Christmas and AE matches Nordstroms?

Better shot of lacing and gap.

I very much like the color of these.

Interesting how varied the stock is at NR.

 

Regarding that thread you are referencing, there will certainly be differences of opinion regarding what a customer and what AE may call a "structural defect" on occasion.  The bowing issue has been acknowledged by AE on some cases to be a problem with the leather itself.  However, the fit of the shoe is the culprit in most cases I think (instep problems with certain lasts).  Regardless, in the referenced thread, the shoes had been worn for a while, and they were still "structurally sound."  They just didn't look visually appealing to the owner.  AE probably could have warrantied them and kept a happier customer, but then again, maybe not.  Visual defects aren't likely to ever be covered by AE on seconds after they are significantly worn.  Examine them carefully before you buy them.

Interesting. I don't really have any issues tightening my shoes with 'normal' straight bar lacing.

Park Avenues are typically only on sale during the Anniversary sale in July.  If you cannot wait until then, I would pick them up from Brooks Brothers on 12/26 or get seconds during one of the seconds sales.

So, someone in AE's shipping department really messed up.  I was supposed to get a pair of Eagle Counties, but instead this is what I found:

 

 

I think I may keep it anyway.

I've read that thread and I thinkt he OP was misinformed. I would bet that AE won't take it back as a return, but would be happy to recraft.

 

The Nordstrom sale starts at the end of December and puts a number of AE models at 33% off, I bought my PAs a few years ago at $229 or so which is better than the seconds price. The PAs have been on sale every time they had an AE sale since then. I actually recommend buying the shoes at Nordstrom over AE just because of their awesome return policy.

I didn't know the Shaker Heights was clearance priced. Thanks for this, peppercorn! I have just emailed Allison to scrap what we were doing with the Eagle County and continue on with my original idea of a Shaker Heights sans tweed. :colgate:

Yes (starting 12/26)  and possibly Yes, depending on stores and SAs but why not. 

 

I also have the FAs by BB and they are very comfortable, as they maybe on sale after christmas as well (12/26 only-just get my postcard in the mail).  If you're not in a hurry to get them, I think the consensus is too wait ... maybe for a week :brick:

They would absolutely do a recraft.  The problem he was having wouldn't have been fixed by that, however.

Your post is somewhat perplexing because I've never seen the Park Avenues on sale at Nordstrom at any time other than during the Anniversary Sale.  This question gets asked almost every December, and I've never seen a positive response indicating Park Avenues were actually part of the December sale whereas we typically have 100 or most posts on the subject every year during the Anniversary sale.

Ahh you're right I had to check back a few years but it was during the anniversary sale. Hard to keep track with all the purchases in the past couple of years. My apologies!
