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.

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.

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?

For the first two, AE makes matching belts

Just received the FedEx shipping notification for my bourbon Daltons.  Should have them at my doorstep tomorrow afternoon.  Fingers crossed I get a good pair! :)

Ordered the LaSalle's in black.  They were out of the Long Branch in Dark Brown, but put me on a wait list.  Now I can go over the list again and see what else I need.

If so, which colors? I know I saw a fellow use cognac a few pages ago, and he didn't seem entirely pleased. Any others with first-hand experience?

Any darker polish will darken your shoes slightly, just need to apply evenly.

I have the RL Saunders and they have the leather insole, not the Poron. Also, the AE RL's are most often compared to AE's Independence line as far as the quality of the leather goes, though I don't have any of these to compare them too. My Saunders also have the 2-piece combination heel like the cordovan AE's. they fit a little bit more snug than than my 5-last shoes. I like them a lot.

I think new shoes was only referring to the pricing of the RL shoes and not the insole/rubber sole part, as that is the difference between the BB branded shoes and regular AE branded
