While we're asking Paul to bring back the Eagle County, we should really ask him to bring the Townley back as well!

Does anyone know if the shoe bank is having any upcoming sales? I'm kicking myself for not getting calf patriots for $140. Thanks!

I am about to place an order for an MTO MacNeil and I wonder what do you folks think of the following design? 

 

1. Golden brown CXL with tan stitching (similar to the Rush Street)

2. Natural split reverse welt (with wheeling) and natural sole edge

3. Red Dainite sole with the natural midsole

4. Brass eyelets (can't really decide whether I want to go with or without the metal eyelets)

5. Independence lining.

 

What would be the alternatives to the CXL for the casual longwing? I also thought of Dublin but it appears more distressed than CXL. If someone has seen AE (Horween) Natural and Golden Brown CXL in flash, could you comment on which one you think might work better for a longwing?

I love this make up! Between CXL and Dublin, I'll go for CXL. I might be biased though as I have the exact make up in discussion with Allison. Only pending spec is the choice of uppers, golden brown CXL vs waxy tan saddle (eg. Elgin). I'm still waiting for leather swatches to make final decision.

You mean like these Elgins?

Hey - I'm new to the deals via the shoebank.  How do you find out about their sales/promotions?  I've emailed and received their inventory list but not sure how to find out about any other promotions.  Is that in addition to their inventory list or just the pricing listed there? Thanks for any help!

Following tho thread is probably the best way to hear about Shoebank sales and specials when (and sometimes before) they happen.

 

When you get an inventory list it reflects the current prices, including any current sales (well, except things like two-for-$250, which are obviously applied afterward).

Mojave also looks a lot like Clarks desert boots, and Amok is a bit dressier chukka. I got both during the recent sale and I will share my thoughts later today. 

Looking forward to your post!

New Dark Chocolate Daltons picked up today. I have the Cascades, but those are lower and far more casual. I am really liking these. I was wearing some medium gray wool slacks when I tried them on and it looked very nice.

I just put on a little AE Cleaner / Conditioner and buffed them.
