I'm in the market for my first proper pair of shoes. AE right now has a sale on its website. Its McAllister Wingtip Oxfords are usually $385 but are now selling at $280 for example. Is this a major discount or does AE routinely have sales like this? I'm not in a particular rush as the job I work in now is casual so I can always hold out for a better deal. I'm just trying to figure out whether this is a particularly good deal I should jump at.
I think it's a good deal for first quality where McAllister is one of the more popular models that will go on sale here and there, but probably still around the $279 range
If you don't mind some slight defects, check out shoebank.com for Allen Edmond seconds where McAllister and other popular models like Strand are currently $219
