No, they're only being made in black at the moment.


Also, I called to cancel my order on the Singletons.  There's no special going on for them at the moment ($149 is par for the course w/ RL seconds) so I'm going to wait until this summer and place a 2 for $250 on the loafers and a pair of McAllisters in either Bourbon or Merlot. 


With the incoming Fifth Streets my shoe collection looks like this:

Fifth Aves (brown)

Park Aves (black)

Kenilworth (brown)

Malvern (brogue suede)

Fifth Street (black)

Patriots (brown)

C&J Perf-Toes (Fifth Aves in a mid-brown)

Wolverine 1K Mile Boots (cordovan color)

Walk Over bucks (khaki)

RL Sanderson (walnut)****

RL Innsbrook (brown)****

 

Yikes, when I put it that way, it's quite a lot - at least I use all of them regularly (save for the Park Aves).  I've also got a pair of Alden Color #8 perf-toe jumper boots coming in a few months but they're a challenge/gift to myself and won't be worn unless I achieve certain professional milestones by 2015.  I think with the suede loafers and a pair of merlot wintips (the McAllisters) coming in the summer, I should be set for a while.

 

****I'm trying to sell these right now, they're sz 10 but I don't want to put links here so if you're interested you can PM me for details****

"Tanger outlet?" Where the fxck is that located, and is it only applicable to that location?

Does anyone know if MTO orders through Allison get the sale pricing that is currently going on? I was looking to order some Cronmoks with the padded independence insole and the VIP outsole for the ultimate comfort casual boot.

Also, can you request no perfing and pinking? More of an austerity brogue look.

Someone posted a flyer a couple pages back showing $99 for closeout seconds at the Shoebank (all AE outlets use the same inventory database, not just what's available at that store).

 

I called the Jeffersonville Outlet and they confirmed they are taking pre-orders for the Black Friday sale, however they are checking tomorrow to see if the $99 on closeout seconds will be part of the actual sale.

I have an existential dilemma. Which PTB: Derby City or Stewart? Both are now $159, but Derby City should be 30% off at J'ville and Stewart will probably be $99 as a closeout second.

234 less 30% ~$165. Saved $200 off the normal price. Fingers crossed they come in great condition, the SA told me they were still at the factory.

the 20/30% off thing is a Tanger Outlets sale, so if it's worked in the past on RL shoes I don't see why it wouldn't this time - unless they're saying that RL shoes are already discounted and thus you can't take off any additional %

 

It's probably because the RL shoes, like the BBs, are already on sale. I'd imagine they'll let you use those coupons on any shoe that isn't a closeout/on sale. They typically won't let you stack sales.

I like the natural welt and natural edge of the Stewart.

Question: are Dalton seconds ever cheaper than $200?

post #34078 of 48098

Ok...this may be long..  I have a few newbie questions.  I've been lurking for a while, and I'm considering my first pair of AE.  I figured I'd post here for help since the search function on this forum sucks and I didn't want to start a new thread...

 

-What exactly are factory seconds?

-If I've never ordered extra wide dress shoes before, should I disregard all of the extra options (EEE), etc and just stick with the regular?

-Is there a particular "last" that results in a better shoe based on popular opinion here?

-Is the quality far superior to that of Donald Pliner and/or John Varvatos? 

-Is the maintainence difficult?

 

Thanks in advance for any help.
