Yes I'm asking for a bargain here. No flames shog[1].gif

The Allen Edmonds outlets usually have them for $49 or so.  You can find similarly colored belts elsewhere if you look around, but if you need one quickly or don't have a less expensive store near you, the outlets are a good way to save $40 or so.

These are my new Elgin seconds.  There's a sort of dimple or indentation on the right shoe, between the toe cap and the throat, but I don't think people will be able to notice it, especially after a few polishes and some wear.  What do you guys think?

 

 

Also, these are my first pair of dress boots, also purchased at the seconds sale.  I've never owned dress boots before, but at $125, these seemed like a good place to start.  They also had tan suede Amoks in my size, but I already have dark brown suede desert boots, so I couldn't justify buying a pair that would occupy a similar niche in my wardrobe.

I will offer you this: My understanding is that the Elgin is basically the same shoe as the McTavish but with a Strand style vs. the McAllister style.  I own the McTavish in natural tan and the shoe's "rough" leather doesn't age the same way as my other AEs - it looks much more rough and casual and hides blemishes more easily.  As well, you are supposed to use saddle soap on them - not polish - to treat the leather.  The saddle soap also seems to make them look rough.  Point is that after a few wears and treating them with saddle soap you will barely notice this.  I would keep them if you have a need for such a style.  I considered ordering a pair of Elgins but they're too close of a style to what I already have :)

Great pickup, how did you manage to get these Daltons in the 2 for 250 sale?

For some reason AE refers to the Brown suede Strands as Brogue for color...I was a tad confused when I ordered mine during the sale...on a side note I am starting to think I have too many shoes with wingtips, cap toes, stitching etc...I unpacked my Brown Suede Strands and my wife chirped in all your shoes look the same...LOL  Actually getting 4 or 5 pairs of black AE shoes ready for sale.

Hey guys, I was looking at this shoe.

 

 

I am currently wearing a long branch in size 15D and it seems pretty comfortable.. How would a size 15C on this #6 last compare? I'm highly considering buying this shoe, because as you can imagine it is nearly impossible to find quality shoes in my size, and this seems like a steal.

 

Thanks.

For that price - I would give it a try - if they are a touch snug have them stretched

The Riverhead outlet had them in my size! I wear a 15 (or, on occasion, 14D), so it might be that seconds and discontinued shoes remain in outlets longer because there are fewer customers who wear that size. The downside to wearing that is that many makers don't go that large, except for special orders.
