I agree, polished cobbler calf, most likely. J

I am new to the forum, found my way here from some Allen Edmunds google searches. As a side note I am reasonably interested in men's fashion in general.

 

Question: Does anyone anticipate any site wide sale on AE this holiday season?

 

I know they have a few shoes on sale for pre black friday right now, but I am looking to pick up a pair of walnut Strands for my first AE pair, but would prefer not to pay $385 if possible.  Does AE have permanent prices on some items or do they throw us a bone now and then?  Thank you in advance.

First quality walnut strands rarely ever goes on sale. Except maybe during the RDA sale where they give about 15%. But that won't be until September of next year.

I got my walnut Strands from Nordstrom during the anniversary sale last summer. I paid $240 for them.

You might get lucky at the nordstrom half yearly, but I doubt it. Amazon sometimes has deal codes or reductions, but those are random and hard to predict. Just have to be on the lookout. You can try factory seconds if you're okay with that.

Go Hawks!

There's been an ongoing soap opera that I've enjoyed watching over the past 6 months.

There's been one hapless pair of black ostrich delrays in my size in Shoebank inventory forever. Every so often, when the outlets run a sale, it disappears. But eventually, the prodigal ostrich always wanders back.

I try to imagine someone in my unusual size looks at the inventory during a sale, and thinks, "hey, nows a good time to get my hands on an exotic for an affordable price! How bad could it be?"

And considering that the flaw must be bad enough to send it back EVERY SINGLE TIME, my mind always wonders what it could possibly be. The curiosity is building to a fever pitch. I'm pretty darn close to ordering it myself, just to see what's so damn wrong with the footwear. It might be worth the $10 just to satisfy the curiosity....

The Brooks Brothers version goes on sale fairly frequently:

For those like me that miss the 0 last, there's a brand new walnut Bel Air in 10D for sale on the bay.

Damn. Wife just caught me buffing the cordovan keyring that they gave us at the trunk show Thursday. I guess this proves that I have a problem.

Never gonna live this down.

Nordstrum has included the walnut Strand at least the last two years in their Anniversary Sale in July-August. I got mine for $219 in 2012, which was about 1/3 off at the time.

If you might tolerate seconds, check the Shoebank. Otherwise, short term you might check larger deptment stores for their on Black Friday sales.

I've seen that ostrich delray floating around, lol.  I assumed that they removed it during the online sales, only to put it back up at full 2nd price.

At the 44th st store, they gave out tote bags with some conditioner cleaner, a shoehorn, bottled water (AE branded), AE mints, a flannel belt bag (??), and a cordovan keyring. Mine was color 8. They're super cheap though. Like 15$ I wouldn't stress.

I must have missed out! I was pretty parched hoofing it from 55th street..could have used some water :rotflmao:

 

I actually ordered an Alfred Sargent cordovan keyring for like 6 GBP a week ago. Got one in "dark cognac". Considered some AE ones as well.

Rocking the dark brown Strands today. Love these shoes. Look okay with gray?
