Someone else said $350+, we disagreed with his post, you defended it... and thus started the confusion which I most assuredly contributed to.

can we move along? Roger expects more from AE for his money, you expect better photos on the AE website, everyone has their own opinion and lets just leave it at that

 

I am constitutionally unable to wade through the kind of back-and-forth that has been going on here for the past couple of hours.  Perhaps I could summarize what I think may be the gist of it:

 

(1) AE makes a high volume of shoes that it then sells for around $350 list.

(2) Patient, careful, and/or tolerant shoppers can often find them at significant discounts.

(3) Some people don’t find the fit, finish, etc. of AE’s shoes to be acceptable at the $350 price point.  Others do.

(4) More people are willing to accept the level of fit, finish, etc. of the shoes when they are purchased at significant discounts.

(5) AE is not trying to compete with Carmina, C&J, Church, (fill in your preferred European shoemaker here).

(6) No matter what their price and level of fit, finish, etc. is, AEs are much better than typical Chinese- and/or Indian-made J&M, Cole-Haan, etc., and patient, careful, and/or tolerant shoppers can often find AEs for prices that are very competitive with said Chinese- and/or Indian-made crap.

(7) At the end of the day, there will need to be some “agreeing to disagree.”

 

Is this accurate?  Have I left anything out?

I haven't got that email yet... only the Web Gems email in Brown Burnished on Tuesday.. 

 

As mentioned earlier in the thread, I spoke with Phil/Vincenzo at ShoeBank and they said Februrary is when there is usually a ~15% off factory seconds and then closeout sales on select models.

the only pair listed on the email was the fifth street for $199, I think one would need to email the outlets for a list of what is included in the sale

This thread is more fun when people post pictures of their new shoes, shells after a few years of wearing in, and post-shine/care! I love AE shoes and have paid a variety of prices for all of them (ebay, seconds, Nordstrom, full price shells) and enjoy wearing them and receiving compliments for having "nice shoes, dude!"

I received an email yesterday or the day before that the Strandmok in blue suede were on sale for $199. Think the email was titled Winter Blues or something. I was tempted as I've always wanted a pair of blue suede shoes. I just think there are few options for pairing them with anything other than jeans.

I just sent an email to the outlet requesting additional information on 30-40% seconds sale mentioned above.. hopefully will hear something soon and will be able to post.

Khaki's and cords as well! It'd probably work well with some wool/tweed/flannel pants too!

It is a nice shoe. What colors are you thinking?

I purchased a BB strand brown from the shoe bank a week back for $179 (10% discount off the second price of $199). Not sure why though.

I am trying to hard not to purchase a pair of Rutledge seconds for $229 (originally $475 for firsts).  Good looking shoe but I already have a pair of walnut Strands and bourbon McAllister's.  Also fighting off Haights for $200 as well...

There's always room for civil and respectful discussions in this thread.

True, so long as they stay civil!
