I'll get the Long Branch for now and think about the others...

 

For whatever reason, the seconds AE made for Brooks Brothers and Ralph Lauren frequently get marked down to the ridiculous level of $129.  As noted above, the only difference is the sole and the poron insole.  As for the difference in fit, there was a good description a page or two back.  The report was that the width and length are the same, but there is less volume in the shoe due to the space the poron insole takes up.

Have not checked yet, but have checked the Brooks Brothers site to see if BB will sell the Strands in suede.  I can't justify paying $200 for seconds when firsts are not much more than that, but I would buy seconds for $129.

Just because it is corrected grain does not mean it is not also full grain.

Has anyone tried getting the Jville store to take the Tanger coupon during this current sale?
post #27513 of 48262

The question has been asked a few pages before but there doesn't seem to be any answer for it. The flyer showed Cliftons going for 179$ but the list sent by the shoe bank doesn't seem to include them, is there a reason for that ?

The email I received also shows Cliftons for $179

It could be that the list in your size has no cliftons left. I'm a 9.5d and there were 20 something cliftons in walnut available as of this morning.

If you are interested in the Clifton deal from the flyer, perhaps you could give shoebank a call and ask. I called them and got yes/no answers on availability and then did my order (all over the phone). I am still waiting for my lists of 9.0 D/E and 9.5 D/E. Now that I have ordered two pairs of shoes, though, I probably shouldn't see what else is available or I may get into trouble at home.

Just got off the phone with Jville.  The Tanger outlet coupon does NOT stack on the Labor Day sale prices.

post #27518 of 48262

Thanks a lot for the answer, not able to call right now and haven't received an answer back yet from the shoebank so I was just wondering why the Clifton was left out of the list previously mentionned.

While your comment is accurate, precise and pertinent, I tend to base my responses on my own personal experience.

I wear 8.5D in all models and having a high instep that causes me some pain especially with loafers at the beginning of the break in period. But with the Lasalle everything was pretty loose from moment 1.
It felt wider at the bottom and roomier at the top (thank goodness for blucher!!).

Thank you!

Looks like the others beat me to a reply: perhaps they have no more Cliftons remaining in your size.

I think you are referencing Bucksfan's list. I'm pretty sure that was not meant to be all-inclusive.

I tried to order the Ralph Lauren Saunders in dark brown from the Jeffersonville store, but they had none left. The person I spoke to put me on a wait list for the shoe to become available. They will honor the sale price of 129. I assume this works for anything not on closeout, which is pretty nice.
post #27523 of 48262

Jville store was very easy to work with. Quickly emailed the size list to me, and ordering over the phone was easy.

 

I got the Saunders in suede, and hopefully they fit! I read somewhere that they are on the 2 last.  I wear 10B-D in the 1 last and 9.5D in the 5 last, so I went with 9.5D.

Any suggestions for a belt to match burgundy Mcallistairs, walnut Sanfords, and those suede RL Slatons?
post #27525 of 48262
For the first two, AE makes matching belts
