No pics here but I can say that my $149 Brooks Brothers shoes are beautiful! I got a black pair of the BB Park Avenue and a brown pair of the Strands. Both fit right. I could not see any defect on the black Park Avenue, and the laces looked like those of a shoe that had never been tried on. The laces on the Strand looked like someone may have tried them on and there was a tiny (1 mm wide and 2 mm long, max) scuff on the back of a heel. It will polish out and I will do more damage wearing them myself. I am waiting on a Brooks Brothers Presidio (brown) and Ralph Lauren Slaton (black) due to arrive on Wdnesday. Since I am currently 2/2, worst case scenario is 2/4 but I have high hopes. I wonder if a lot of the "branded" shoes are mint over-runs instead of 2nd quality shoes?
On the one hand, I am hoping not to get into trouble at home for buying so many shoes. On the other, it's an amazing deal and I keep studying the list of shoes and keep trying to talk myself out of ordering more.

Good question. I can't remember the name. If I ask AE I'll just attach the picture.

From the pictures that I've seen here and online, I was expecting them to be a bit redder (less brown), but I'm not complaining. I personally prefer the darker shade as they seem to be more discrete.

 

This time around, I ordered an E and the lacing gap was much smaller. I just hope they don't totally close eventually (I'll straight lace them before I wear them outside).

I also decided to get the combination tap sole version just to try it out.

 

Those look great! Combo sole looks quite versatile.

Considering buying a pair of olive Neumoks with blue laces during the sale but I have no idea what I'd wear them with (in a casual office environment - no  blue jeans).  And, I already have a pair of McTavish and snuff suede Neumoks as well.  Ideas?

Just got my Harrison 2nds. They look great. They look like they have been laced and tried on (indentation near eyelets, very minor creasing, wrinkled footbeds, and some scuffing on the sole), but no major problems. Considering I was offered 15% off the try-on shoe at the regular AE store, this is a huge deal.

Im assuming you can wear grey, tan, or black jeans... right? I think the olive would go well with the grey or black, tan could work possibly as well.

 

I love the oilive neumoks as well, just not a priority on my "list"
