Vintage Pendletons from my grandfather. I wish they would reintroduce these. I would be especially interested in picking up a couple pairs of wool pants in some of their more contemporary patterns.

On the bandwagon here too—those pants are amazing. I'm gonna have to dig out the vintage Polo tweed stuff once the weather here in NYC allows for it.

Sixty-plus degrees today in town.

Thanks!  Just got a new pair on the clearance sale and decided not to spend the $26 at AE for trees, hoping for a sale. This is perfect timing.

Hope everyone had a good holiday.  Wanted to vent a little after some "fun" on 12/24.  So the shoebank thing pretty much sucks - everything is basically unchanged, the bourbon stuff is mostly more than it was before the holiday, and the black Friday stuff was reduced to the same as black Friday.  Ok...

 

But the sale on the 1sts is pretty damn good.  There's a few real steals in there, along with some others that aren't bad.  Last time I had such a bad experience at the retail store I haven't been back since September.  I figured what the hell, I gave them a call asking for 2 to be ordered.  I got an employee I knew, he knew me, not an AM, not the SM.  Gave me the same bullshit lecture as last time - I don't know if I can get them, etc. you should be lucky to pay full retail with a size like 7D, it's hard to find.  If I were you I wouldn't even look at closeouts, etc.  I felt like Neo in that interrogation scene.  How about if I give you the finger...I picked up the phone, called Ben, he got them, no fuss, done.  Unbelievable.  Ben's the man.  They're no longer available by the way - good I didn't wait or fool around with the retail store any more.

Maybe I missed it in your post, but what was it that you bought?

I picked up the last Strand Duffle Bag last week, and it is a thing of beauty.  It was difficult to justify the price (even at a pretty steep discount), but it should get some good use for many years and my wife seems to like it too.

 

I had bought the Strand Double Flap Briefcase for my brother for Christmas, but before I shipped it to him I talked to him about it and it turns out he wouldn't have much use for it (commutes to a tech job in California on his bike).  So now I'm sitting here with a gorgeous briefcase that matches my new duffle bag, but I already own a Saddleback brown messenger briefcase that should last forever.  I just can't seem to bear the thought of parting with the Strand briefcase either!

 

Decisions, decisions.

My boots have seen heavy wear lately, despite the warm weather. Pulled a few out to brush, wipe, condition, dress the edges, polish, brush, and brush some more. The Shakers held up well after a long hike, lots of play in sand, rocks while on the playground and around a bunch of excited dogs...but certainly needed some tlc. I've had them for 1-2 years and this is the first time they have seen any polish at all. Went with "old" chili this time; next time they'll get hit with Bob's.
(Please forgive the unmade bed. It's been a slow morning.)

+ 1 for chili shakers!

What color are these?  Brown?  Tan?

I don't know if someone has already answered this, but it usually means that they have discontinued that model in that particular color, or with that particular sole.  The more expensive seconds are the colors/sole styles that are still in production.  The pricing does not relate to the severity of the defect.

In an attempt to stop myself from spending 1K on shoes today, can someone answer a couple of shoe bank questions for me:

1) Is the shoe bank currently marked down for Black Friday/cyber Monday as well, or are they normal pricing?

2) When you see a particular shoe priced below similar shoes in the shoe bank (same shoe but different color or sole), does that reflect a more serious defect, discontinuation of that model? What gives rise to the additional price reduction? Thanks.
