Amazon, AE Outlet, AE sales (about two big ones a year), and Nordstrom sales of course

On a similar note; AE themselves used to list shoes on the bay didn't they?!? Do they still?!?

No, they do not. I am not sure they ever did either, but I might be wrong. Trickers does that though.

They did, but haven't since 2010 apparently... I did a little research after posting my question:

Hmm. They're on 6pm in a half size larger than my 5 last shoes. But I think I've been buying shoes a half size too small... So they would be my correct 5 last size

Give them a try... YMMV... I just found a lot of slippage with my TTS 5 last size...

Would you go for a Bayfield in Brown Cordovan and a Mora 2.0 in Burgundy Cordovan

or the other way round, i.e.;

Bayfield in Burgundy Cordovan and Mora 2.0 in Brown Cordovan?

6pm will take them back, you have to pay for shipping

I snagged a pair of Mctavish seconds in dark brown cognac yesterday at the Port Washington, WI factory outlet store.  I have four pairs of Mctavish:  Black wax infused, natural wax infused, the discontinued distressed brown, and now the cognac.  The only color that I'm missing is the new dark brown crackle leather, which I think that I'll be able to live without.

I have also done pretty well with that seller. I think he sells a lot of seconds.

Walnut shell MacNeils.
post #32248 of 46879
Maybe I'm a bit late to the party, but I've just spotted the Merlot webgems on the AE site.
Quick question, since it's hard to tell the exact colour from their photography, is the merlot close to burgundy?
I already have some MacNeils in chili. Would the merlot be too similar?

I would highly recommend them as a casual F/W boot.

 

Yeah...I was really attracted to the brown/tan Rothsays in particular, when I first saw them.  If I can ever cobble up enough money to buy some, Im thinking I will eventually have to own a pair

I received an email about the latest web gem, burnished merlot. My favorite color is dark burgundy. I have walnut and dark brown Strands, and have been debating between black Strands and walnut Daltons for my next purchase. Looks as though those will have to wait.

Anybody have much experience with the burnished models? I am wondering if the color changes much with time and polishing.
