also how to size for them if I'm wearing 8.5E in Strands?

Nordstrom sells them. I wear the same size in Cliftons as I do in Strands.

You could also try getting a pair of 2nds from the Shoebank.

Ha, no worries. It gets confusing with all the "S's": Sanderson, Singleton, Saunders, etc. I ordered a pair of brown Saunders a few months ago and they sent me a pair of Sandersons by mistake. When I tried to correct it they were out of stock on the Saunders. I ended up keeping the Sanderson since it was in nice condition and I only paid $129.

I ordered a pair of the Brooks Brothers football leather chukka boots as part of the 2 for $250 sale. I'm puzzled as to why it's $498 on BB's website even though it clearly states "Allen Edmonds" on the sole. After all, football leather is not a premium leather. I was very interested in this shoe when I first saw it but there was no way I was paying anywhere close to $498 for it, so I'm glad that my size was available in 2nds for this sale. I have no idea what last these are on so hopefully they fit OK.

These are on the 234 last, similar to the Chukkamok.

I recently received my first pair of AE cordovans, Cambridge seconds from the $299 sale:

 

 

I already have mink oil renovator for my calf shoes, which I like very much. Is mink oil okay for cordovan or do I need to get VSC or Saphir Reno for these puppies? And can I use my burgundy paste polish that I use on my calf, or again do I need a special cordovan product?

Looks like the Rediscover America landing page is already up?

Is there a glossary somewhere explaining all the different welts and other details? Jubei's pics of his Cliftons are making me want an MTO, but I'd like to know all my options.

Yes, last year's page. Scroll to the bottom and you'll see the 2012 copyright.

Not to mention those dates equate to a Tues to Wed sale duration, if you look at a 2013 calendar. Last year's...

PSA: Aberdeen's for $87 in 8D.

 

They're a funky looking shoe but for the money, it might be worth it for some.

I don't feel so bad now.

 

The Sandersons are great. Wait, do I own the Sandersons? :brick: or the Saunders? Blast you, Ralph Lauren, for picking out these S names!

The Aberdeen is one of my favorite AE models. It's essentially a version of the MacNeil (or so AE refers to it on the website) but made on a 2 last and with a more casual twist. It's absolutely great for the foul weather or for the overnight trips. I have a pair in brown which I've been wearing for about a year and I just got another pair to keep in my closet, since it's being discontinued. This said, I must admit the shoe looks pretty ugly in grey. While $87 might be a good deal, it is currently on sale for $125 and since this is a closeout style, you'll likely get first quality.

I'm not aware of AE ever sending out first quality shoes to the Shoe Bank just because they're closeouts.
