4) Any recommendations for shoes I can wear with a suit and dress down with jeans?

+1 I wouldn't pay more than $200 shipped for seconds.

Anyone know if one of the $35 gift cards work on seconds?  

 

It's a card that another user here gifted to me, and it is clear that it is only good for purchase of shoes, but I am unsure whether it is also viable for seconds and not just firsts.

I'd shoot a quit email to shoebank@allenedmonds.com

Call them @ 262.284.7158.

I just called them and finished placing my order:

- Park Avenue black $199
- Clifton burgundy $199

I should have stopped there but I didn't:

- Manistee belt merlot $97
- shoe trees $17 x 2
- wax polish $2.25 x 2

Someone call and ask them the price on Clifton though. The guy told me there is no sale on them beyond the $199 usual seconds price because they are a discounted model.

I'm interested in this too!

Hopefully this means that they can start working on those web gems now too.

 

And Fed Ex did drop these at the front door without a signature. Second time they have done this, so possibly this is the new norm.

 

 

 

 

Beautiful shoe, I've seen more black shell on here in the last week than a whole year previously. I would seriously consider getting those.

 

On another note I went to a link for the limited edition shell boots on the AE site and now get:

We're sorry. This product has recently sold out and is no longer available for purchase. We are in the process of removing it from our website.

 

Looks like the limited availability of shell has hit hard. Or the deadline has now come but I thought it was a bit further out.

Couldn't help myself....snapped up the Parkways for $220.00. Not enough offerings in suede, anyone know why?

I think they didn't want to sell the shell at a discount

My memory can be pretty flaky, but I believe September 24 was the deadline on the shell webgem boots.

Indeed, black shell is pretty nice, and black shell Macneils are very nice.  I have black shell Leeds and am just waiting for the right time to get black PAs, Cambridges and Macneils (probably in that order).  I think that they had 9/23 as the end date for the webgem boots.  Supposedly you'll see the Daltons (in burgundy) and Dundees (in brown, burgundy and black) show back up in October.  

 

I have 1 brush I use for black, 1 for burgundy, 1 for very light brown, 3 in various locations for shell brushing.  I do not use daubers, using an old t-shirt instead.

Is today the last day for the Urban Daddy Amsterdams? I e-mailed them but never got a response. 

 

I missed out on the offer just as I was about to buy them... ffffuuuu.gif

Makes sense I thought it was the end of this week. Not that I need those burgundy Daltons but if they come back in October they will be hard to resist...

 

Brushes and shoe care I'm pretty close to bucksfan. In addition I have another brush for dark brown and one for HDLP\leather oil. Old T-shirts and nylon stockings which I keep seperated in large plastic ziplock bags based on color along with the cream\wax.

Just wanted to ask this again.  Thanks.
