This "flash" sale has come up before.  No preannoucement or anything. Did it used to be 25%?

 

I'm a little nervous about the changes to the MTO and 2) the pulling of the 2 for $250 sale.  Maybe those are new changes with the new ownership.

 

Quick question:  Did someone say that AE is totally out of brown or cappucinno shell? I'd like to get in an MTO.

 

They are out of the cappuccino and the walnut but they do still have the brown.

Saw the Rush Street in person today. The color is a lot darker than I thought. The website describes the color as "golden brown chromexcel leather", as oppose to "natural chromexcel leather" as on the Clark Street. So I suppose it is intentionally darker....

I just spoke with Allison earlier and the black unstructured boot I'm trying to come up with can't be done in the Black Wax Infused of the McTavish (I love the look of that one, but I can't wear it because of it being a firm make on the 5-65 last).

 

She suggested the black Dublin leather. Does anyone have anything in that color with an opinion on it?

I'm coming up with a Chukkamok casual boot to come very close to black, but without being black (as black ≠ casual to me), so I want a "rough" black leather and it'll be done with dark brown welt and contrast brown stitching like the McTavish. So I'm curious about substituting Black Dublin for Black Wax Infused in trying to mimic the McTavish look.

I have the Black Carson City boot and it is on Sale so should be able to be MTO the black is an unfinished leather, rough looking but extremely comfy not lined. I no longer like the sole of the boot(orange) at this point but otherwise it is a nice boot. I was told originally it was an Outlet Exclusive...but of course that was by the outlet.

Agreed. Even made sure to grab two different sizes in the Elgin just to make sure I got the fit right.

As did I.  Great minds think alike!

 

Well, then, I suppose I've got a great mind, too.  Two different size pairs of Elgins are headed my way!

I've never seen black dublin -- but I have a few different shades of other dublin leathers and they're about as informal as a high-quality leather can get, especially after you beat up on them for a few months. I like the material a lot.

Here's an example of a black dublin briefcase (with black shell details) from Dave Mitchell:



...looks pretty good to me.

Hens' teeth?  Yeah, I guess those are rare.

 

A virgin giving birth?  I suppose that's unusual.

 

Brand-new, first-quality walnut shell Strands, straight from a forgotten shelf in an AE storage shed?  NO WAY!!!

 

Well, here they are . . .

 

 

Nice and bloom-y too:

After applying to over 25 programs over the course of 4 years, I was finally accepted into the PhD program at Columbia.

 

Now, what shoes do I buy?

For a PhD program, anything that covers your feet will do.

Clearly it depends on what kind of PhD program.

Anrobit gets the hat-tip for the heads-up . . . I was just the first one to the phone.  Had to go down a half-size but they're more than tolerable.  Thromb, if you're reading, sorry to report that I'm keeping them.

Shouldn't be anything that the Mac method won't cure.
