Thank you, duly noted.

 

I will give it a try ASAP.

Opinions on this AE purchase from ebay? I'm paying 130 USD all in. How is the condition of the shoe and was it worth it?

I tried asking something similar here and got ignored =(.

 

Anyways, I think $130 is a bit high, it should be around $100ish but they look in good condition, however I would ask (if possible) to get close up picture of the back and the inside. Those will give you a better idea on how much they were wore, sometime if they are wore a lot, the sole will be wore out in an angle. Also the inside, you should be able to see the logo clearly, if the logo is "fade out" then they were wear a lot. 

 

just my 2 cents.

Yeah, keep in mind these are also "no warranty" shoes, which means your SOL of anything happens with them.

Has anyone seen pictures of the Normandy boot?  These just turned up on eBay. (From DaBondo)

Neat.  I know Paul mentioned that they were rolling out something like this on his recent reddit AMA.

Exciting stuff. I used to live in downtown Bellevue and I avoided that mall (and malls in general) as much as possible save for Nordstrom. Now I have a reason to check it out. I'll have to check it out when I go back in the fall.

 

On another note, I caved in and ordered a pair of the Jeffersons. For $150 after the AMEX deal it's a no brainer. Plus I don't have any walnut shoes except my shell Daltons. I try to step away from AEs for awhile and they keep pulling me back in.

My name is watchidiot and I haven't bought a pair of Allen Edmonds since Nov 9 2014.

It's been a difficult journey, and there were times I almost succumbed to the temptation (heritage GMTO, 295 Dundee 3.0, tent sale).

Thank you to the support of Allen Edmonds Anonymous.

Lol.

Ha!

 

First pair of AEs since November 2014 as well. Love the Jefferson pattern and independence leather though.

 

I've realized I have a problem though since my Alden LWBs and Carmina austerity bal boots are sitting in my closet (hidden from my fiance) unworn. 

 

First step is admitting right?

I had about 3 pairs of Carmina hidden in the closet too. You know what allowed me to get them out?

I had my wife pick up a package from the post. She was surprised to see a mansur gavriel bucket bag inside. I took out the shoes from the closet that same afternoon. Didn't hear a groan and not even an eye roll. It works buddy! Try it!

I heard it mentioned and then I saw it when I was in there last Sunday. I am excited to have a place where I can try shoes on and get talked in to paying full price for something...

Yes, but how many Carmina have you bought since then????

Bro, you've moved from a little wine to hard drugs!!

I have some PA Cordovan shells like that other fellow who took the scratches out of his shoe. There is also some discoloration. Any idea of this could be fixed?

I grabbed that exact same deal except in brown.  Never thought I would see a deal that good on the Jefferson.  Perplexed as to why they are discontinuing though.

post #61365 of 70737
Jefferson is being replaced by Jefferson 2.0, which is the McAllister pattern but with the independence line upgrades.

I was at an AE retail store today and saw the new Normandy boot in brown (the eBay listing above looks all black). It looks great. Contrasting yellow boot laces, cool finish on the leather, extremely soft and supple. Reminds me of a mix between Frye and the Wolverine 1K mile.
