You can try. Not all SAs always honor the sale pricing early. Are you in a particular rush? The sale officially starts June 4, I believe.

I didn't realize the sale started that soon.  I can probably wait.  I am leaving the country in the middle of June and was thinking the sale didn't begin until later in the month.

Just joining the AE love fest.I have an old pair of AE black bluchers that I bought about 4 years ago and have stood up remarkably well to my consistently administered beatings, so I started to understand the whole "rich dad, poor dad thing".

I then bought a pair of Merlot presidios and am quite pleased with them. I started out by seeing the financial sense but have since been bitten. I recently got myself some walnut fifth avenues and am looking at a couple other purchases in the near future. In my naivety, I bought the black mctavishes, which I am sending back but unsure what to replace them with.

I probably should have asked for your advices sooner but, in the words of Baba O'REILLY: "Bada Bada". Am I right?

Also: I recently got some black Luccas off of ebay for 35 all in. They're "near new".

So in sum:
Walnut fifth avenues
Merlot presidio
Black loafers

What next? I am naturally quite conservative and always wear mono-colour button-down shirts. I work in finance and am commonly required in very high level meetings, but most of the time I'm just alone with my comp. I like the look of the strands, mcallisters, park Ave, delray and know I need some brown, bourbon in there. What are your advices, people?

Welcome to the addiction! But you know the rule: pictures or it didn't happen.

The dark green looked surprisingly good, the navy would be more versitility, but I'm starting to think I'm might just say, "oh screw it" and go for the red.

Of course, if I were a real playa, I get 2 or 3 colors. Horween CXL for $125 is one of the better first quality bargains AE has had for a while.

That's a great price for that shoe. I have it in brown. I love the CXL leather. I was also in the Plano store yesterday. Couldn't resist the urge to place an order. That's pair number 7 since Christmas.

Did you get the golden brown or the darker brown color?

I have the darker brown. Ordered about a month ago.

Yesterday I ordered burgundy Cliftons. Nordstrom didn't have my size. I happened to be in the mall with my wife. Stopped and asked if he could order my size. He said he could. Burgundy Cliftons now on the way.

I love the Maritime so much that I took a second look at the dark brown Clark Street while I was there. I think that will be my next pair. They look like a great rainy weather shoe for business casual.

Might be an odd question (and hopefully not asked recently), but does anyone know if an AE retail store can (and will) order from one of the outlets?

Looking to pick up a Maritime first and a Gobi second all while taking advantage of the Amex deal. Not sure about sizing of the Maritime and was going to head into a store this weekend.

Anyone have any experience with a request like this?

You could get sized, then call AE CAC and have them order Maritime firsts and Gobi seconds for you and give them your Amex.

Great idea. That may be what I have to do.

There's one particular SA that has helped me out with a couple of exchanges/sizing issues before, but wasn't working the two times I bought firsts in store. I was hoping to show him a little love (assuming he gets commission on a sale priced shoe).

You could also buy the Maritime and a gift card from your SA on your Amex (he'll at least get commission on the Maritimes), and use the gift card for the Gobi.

That's knowledge right there...if you could make all my decisions for me, I'd be much better off.

Thanks!

That would be very detrimental to the health of your wallet.

Amy of the outlet stores will sell you first quality shoes as well as seconds. I suggest the Jeffersonville store.
