So you have one sentence for firsts that dismisses mosy's complaints and then dedicate an entire paragraph to seconds, which mosy says he doesn't buy. Again, this feels like you're being way too defensive.
Look, I'm not anti-AE. I have black Park Avenues and burgundy Nathans that I rotate and wear to work 3 times a week. Their quality is apparent when compared to the ubiquitous square-toed Aldo. Just don't try to shut someone down with a paragraph rant on seconds when the guy is saying he's paying full retail for firsts.
