Can anyone gives thoughts on the brown Neumok vs. the dark brown cognac McTavish? Nordstrom sale cost is not a factor as I can get the McTavish for the same price. 

Does anyone know where the cognac McTavish is on sale?

It was $199 at Lands End with free shipping to Canada which made it a great deal for me. It was only size 10 though and is gone now, but they have a few sizes of black left.

Anyone know if the Cliftons will be on sale during the Nordstroms Anniversary sale?

post #24739 of 47249

Cliftons are not included.

This straddles the line between streetwear and classic I guess.  Would walnut strands + chinos (casual kind) + an untucked shirt (ocbd/linen/etc) be OK, or too casual?

I guess the biggest issue for me and my reluctance to pull the trigger on the PAs is how dull the black looks. Can anyone supply me with a pic of their PAs after a real nice shoeshine? In dire need of a black oxford (I really wanted the FA) but can't get myself to pay full price for them. SOME HELP PLEASE.

The PA's shine up exceptionally well..

The SA at the Allen Edmonds let me price match the olive Neumoks to Nordstroms today!  These shoes are perfect for summer wear. PERFECT.

Even I used to think this way. But I changed my mind after trying spit shine.

Obviously this is not mirror shine. But if you spend 15-20 mins you could definitely get a nice shine. Just FYI, I love my PAs thumbs-up.gif

They do show up a bit dull, but easily shine up nicely, and in my opinion look even better after a few wears. Also, don't pay full price! See the earlier posts, as black PA's will be on sale for $229 at Nordstroms starting on July 19.

I have Park and Fifth Avenues in black and dark brown, respectively; the PAs are from AE, the FAs are the BB ones.  I find the BB ones to be -much- more comfortable for me.

 

Can I find BB McAllisters/Strands in walnut on sale this time of year?

The Brooks Brothers sale just passed in the last few weeks, same with the AE tent sale. I know the Jeffersonville AE tent sale is at the end of August, but otherwise I have not heard anything else.

Jefferson Tent Sale?! Is this going to be the same as the previous one at the Wisconsin locations?

Damn this is very nice. Thanks for this. I meant full price for the FAs

I imagine it's the same premise. I order through Jeffersonville as I had bad experiences with the shoebank and when I was placing an order with them during the tent sale a few weeks back the SA told me their tent sale is the end of August. Beyond that I have no details, but I would watch www.aetentsale.com near the start of the month for participating locations.
