I'll go back to my normal corners of STyleforum now, because frankly, this level of snobbishness does not make me want to dive into this thread.


you mean like the Alden thread?

 

Call me crazy, but this is pretty much the most "normal" thread on this forum.

Haha, I'm no snob. I post on their as well since I thrift to build my wardrobe and wanted to see how to do it right. People were just trouncing on the newbs there, including on yours truly. It's funny that I get solid advice from guys on the CW WAYWRN thread than on the thrift store. I wouldn't have expected it.

Shoebank related question: I have no shell in my inventory, or burgundy. Do I roll the dice on burgundy shell Cambridge 2nds @ $449 (not on sale), or calf 5th Ave 2nds @ $169 (have to double check colors available - but merlot/walnut are preferred)? The recent shell posts have me thinking hard...but at almost 3x the cost, the 5th Aves seem like a better deal - and who doesn't love a good deal?

 

As an aside, any thoughts on the Macadam boot? Why so cheap at retail ($295)? What should one expect from an 'independence rubber tap' sole with 'regular' heel?

 

 

At $449, I would save up and spend a bit more on MTO Shell order.  If you're going to spend that much, might as well get what you want and not have to worry about defects.  

 

I've gotten a few 2nds in calf, these are my everyday shoes.  At below $175 you can't complain about the minor imperfections.

Both good points, and taken... Now on to available colors!

Yeah, an AE dress boot, not a 2nd, under $200 seems too good to be true... It's why i'm inquiring as to whether or not anyone has had the pleasure - or displeasure - of meeting them up close.  With a Dalton and Long Branch in the fold, I'm not sweating it. Looks fancy, though...And no shady pull tab on the back!!!!!

 

Oh...BTW...the bourbon strands:

 

 

 

...Pinking is 'perfectly imperfect' on this pair. The others were just fugly. Just having some fun with extra laces i picked up! Makes 'em look more casual. Opinions?

Personally, I love seconds. (Thank you Shoebank!).  It's one of the ways I've been able to afford the # of AE shoes in my arsenal.  Enjoy your shoes...I guess.  

How do they mark seconds? I apologize for misinterpreting your tone.

Ordered a pair of 5th Avenues in Black and the Ralph Lauren Saunders in Tan Calf.

 

Really looking forward to these boots ($150 !!!):

I have a couple that are "older school" than those.  Not sure if they even protect against surges!  :embar:

Thanks; just purchases the last pair of seconds in 9E!

Has anyone tried to return/exchange shoes with the Shoe Bank in Port Washington? Does it usually take a few weeks turnaround?
post #33975 of 46931

Great looking shoes. Love the color. 

 

I've already have the Walnut strands so this is going to be very close to it. I'm thinking of the dark brown strands instead.
