I told them I knew the Shoebanks were having a sale, but the SA continued to say they were not having one.

The outlet stores and the AE retail stores are not the same and have different sales.  The SA was telling you the truth for AE retail stores and likely had no clue the outlets have a sale on seconds.

If it's the BB Elgin with the poron insole, it might be a different story though. I'm not sure about that one.

 

Same here. 10D in both 1 and 5 last but my Elgin and McTavish are 9.5D which fit me best for those shoes. Not sure about the BB ones either I have not figured that one out.

I'll third that. And like MWS said the other day AE shoe care products are a great value for the money. There is nothing wrong with AE cleaner\conditioner for calf.

Can anyone comment on the brown grain Malvern? Id like a chukka and got really excited when I looked up the model, but then I realized the seconds sale is only for the brown grain model, whereas the standard brown is the decidedly better looking one :( why do manufacturers even bother with grain? Isnt it just an embossed pattern?

I personally like the look for more casual boots and shoes.

You can check to see if the Shoe Bank has the Ralph Lauren Saunders in your size. It's a two (or three?) eye chukka that comes in tan, brown, black and suede.

post #21277 of 48645

Checked in for stuff in my size at the shoe bank--seems there's an additional 15% off right now.

 

Snagged seconds in Macneil, Kenilworth (not optimistic about these), Rapid City, and Black Hills, just to mix it up in business casual. Fingers crossed. Shirley answered and was extremely helpful.

Curious how these fit? Are they narrow or roomy? Any need to size up compare to other AE shoes?

The outlet has one in my size and based on the list they sent they are going for $228. I believe that's 15% off the normal $269 price. Does that sound about right for these shoes? I can pick them up on Amazon for (which are firsts) for $276 because I have a 20% coupon for signing up for their mailing list. I assume the outlet will charge me tax so I'm only looking at about $34 to get firsts over seconds.

 

Am I missing an opportunity to get these (or any AE shoe) cheaper somewhere that I don't know about? I checked the B&S area of these forums.

 

Thanks.

 

I, too, have some Shelton seconds on the way. Firsts are $345 and seconds are usually $269. This is the standard ~22% off for seconds. With 15% off for the Memorial Day Sale, they'd be $228.65 pretax.

 

However, seconds for the Brooks Brothers versions of the Shelton (or any other BB shoe) are currently only $159 pretax, so that's what I got. It looks like BB Sheltons are usually $199 unless they're the Tan Saddle version (same leather as the "Tan Saddle Waxy Leather" Elgin) which go for $179.

But, perhaps, this is too much for the Kenilworth? Then again, I know absolutely nothing regarding the JR soles. Any pointers as to single or double and the benefits thereto? Thank you much!

 

For comparison, here's a picture of my burgundy shell Kenilworth's with a single sole that I'm wearing today.

 

 

 

 

I almost took my Townley's out for a maiden voyage, as well, but my right pinky toe was hurting in them. I should probably wear them around the house a little more before I scuff 'em up.

 

Actually, this right pinky toe pain is pretty common for me in different pairs of shoes, so I assume (but haven't measured) that my right foot is more of an E than a D. Should I consider getting a shoe stretcher and target just where that toe hits in my various pairs of shoes? I feel like just a couple of millimeters would make a world of difference.

To all my fellow Canadian shoe maniacs:

http://www.leatherfoot.com/ opened shop in Toronto.

They carry a very high quality footwear selection, but most important (and AE thread related) they carry Saphir products.

As an example, Renovateur Medaille D'or is 20 dollars.

I saw that there are some shipping costs, but if you are in town, it is definitely worth a visit.

Ciao,

Max

 

 

EDIT: and of course, after I posted this, I realized that leatherfoot is one of the sponsors of this site.

Isn't that ironic....

The Saunders are definitely more narrow than most AE lasts.  I have been wearing mine now for a couple months now and they are definitely cramped even with the breakin compared to my other AE shoes. Def TTS or up in width.

These fit pretty narrow and long. I found it to be a very Italian style pointy-toe. I wear 9.5E in Strands/PA and ordered 9.5E in Saunders, but I think a 9 EEE may have been a better choice.

I saw that, unfortunately the saunders are only available in tan and black. The tan is alright but I would prefer a darker brown as it is more versatile so Im holding out for now.

Is that 15% off, say, the 159 for the brooks seconds models? I emailed the shoe bank and they gave me a price list but it didnt mention anything about 15% off. Is there a way I can get in touch with them over the phone?
