Being I just picked up my Walnut Strands and now need a black or brown shoe, I was wondering when the best time would be to pick up a pair of PA's on sale? Is the best sale on those via the factory seconds (50/100 off sale) or are there other sales to look for in the near future?
Same thing with Kenilworth's (in brown).
Every few months or so, the ShoeBank will have a 2/$250 sale that includes closeouts, AE for Ralph Lauren models and AE for Brooks Brothers seconds. You can get the BB Park Avenue version at this time (difference from standard AE is a poron insole and rubber outsole.)
I'd expect one of these sales within the next few months.
I've never seen the Kenilworth on any kind of deep discount. I strongly advise you to try on multiple pairs of this shoe before purchasing.
