Post from Reddit:

 

"Hey all, I spoke with local outlet, Freeport, and they said that the 2 for $250 deal has been delayed by the retail GM. She stated that it would likely be delayed to mid-late march. My fear is that this is the beginning of the changes from the new ownership who don't believe in "2nds" quality shoes and think that is a losing proposition. Crazy to think my first episode of paranoia would be about a shoe company! Also, keep in mind if you are waiting on this sale, it is only for discontinued styles. You will not be seeing Park Aves or Strands on this sale. I know that most people know this but I have found a few that thought all of their lineup was included. If you want to know if a specific line is on the sale, Email the shoebank and then see what is in your size that is listed as a closeout. Hope this helps others in terms of planning."

 

Anyone else hear the same?

Heard the same thing.  However, I wonder if this is because inventory is too low after the current sale to have a close out sale.

Sounds like SF may have finally harvested all of AE's golden eggs.  It was bound to happen sooner or later.  :lol:

This RL was kind of my inspiration also.  I saw it in person a few weeks back and remembered it as a longwing, but I guess it wasn't.  Beautiful shoe nonetheless:



Half,

Those are most definitely the Crockett & Jones for Ralph Lauren Short Wing Bamoral. Definitely a beautiful, shoe but definitely not a Longwing... You may want to check out the C&J for RL thread:

yeah, thats what I thought too. It would be a great day to day casual shoe.

 

As far as the tassel in tan goes, I think those would be an awesome casual shoe if the tan leather developes a nice patina over time, but I don't have any experience with that leather.

They were $850 and I still almost bought them on the spot.  One of the most beautiful shoes I've ever seen up close.  Still not sure why I remembered them as longwings . . . . Anyhow, honestly, the LAST thing I need to do is start following the C&J thread.  AEs and Aldens are draining my bank account quite enough as it is, and I have high hopes that my MTO MacNeils will banish even my fond memory of those Marlows.

LoL. I got mine when they did thier summer sale... They were in the 600 dollar ballpark.

Good luck with banishing their memory! ;-)

I was lucky enough to score some brown shell Strand seconds. They are beautiful, but as you can see in the pictures, the right shoe is lighter than the left. I prefer the lighter color. Am I being too picky, or is this a legitimate concern? Would using Reno be able to lighten up the left shoe some? Thanks for your input and guidance.

Call me crazy but I would leave as is. I like that effect. Anyone who understands the patina process can appreciate. A little funky. Makes for a cool conversation piece.

For those interested in the different shades of Chromexcel (with a Dublin thrown in for good measure):

 

Left to right: 1573 Natural Chromexcel, 3119 Golden Brown Chromexcel, 1020 Brown Chromexcel, 1608 Cognac Dublin

(The pull-up that's obvious in the Natural is from bending the samples to take the second photo). 

 

 

Same samples folded over to show pull-up.  Top to bottom: Natural, Golden Brown, Brown, Cognac Dublin 

 

 

The Natural is beautiful, but the pull-up is considerable, producing a distressed appearance in most applications.  The Dublin is a bit thinner and shinier than the rest and displays the least pull-up.

You're right ... for me is that I prefer the natural ... these beautiful images which tell you a lot.
