Absolutely. I and a few others picked up second-quality Neumok messenger bags for around $40 last year when AE started blowing them out.

The price was definitely right:








I honestly cannot find any flaws with it, but I'm sure that I am missing something.

Go to Torrance and Cerritos.

Some pretty harsh scratches and whatnots on those. I am an 8.5ee on the 65 last and was excited to see this, but I think the scratches may be a bit over the top

I bought the strand double flap briefcase today (in store)... HUGE 40% off and it is beyond gorgeous.

 

not sure about seconds though

I called a few weeks ago to inquire about briefcase sales. Apparently those steep discounts were a one-off

Shame. I'd love a $25 Strand Messenger bag. shog[1].gif

What are the benefits of the AE shoe cream vs. AE premium polish?
post #64358 of 70737

Had a polish day. I was blessed, as the pink Octopus did most of the arm work.

The description on the AE website suggests that the shoe cream has a higher dye content that restores color.

Does anyone notice that extra gap on the left side of the right shoe in both pictures?

I am a big fan of the chili color. Already have pair of Byrons and LaSalles, so trying to decide whether I can use another pair in that color.

Thank you in advance


The dark chili is a lot darker.  The regular chili is like a darkened, reddened walnut whereas the dark chili is more like a lightened, reddened brown.

anyone know the fit of the single monk warwicks? is it the same as strand?


The Strand is built on the 5 last whereas the Warwick is constructed on the newer 201 last. They are very similar in that they are elongated and cater to people with higher arches. The toe box of the 201 is a bit fuller and has a slightly more chiseled toe than the 5. Fitwise, I have found them to be rather similar.

Just my personal experience. I tried the Warwicks on and the 9D fit best. I wear a 9.5D in the Strand. I have a high instep, so take that into consideration.

Post some IRL pics!

 

I remember your posts a few months ago about wanting to get that very bag, so I'm glad you've got it now for a great price.  I am very close to pulling the trigger.
