Anyone has experience with the 2nd belts?

I'm sure others were able to find better deals, but I picked a couple up at the AE retail store when they were having a 15% off sale, and the rest I found off of eBay for 20% off + used eBay bucks as well.

No ones ever confirmed 2nds belts beat I got was 15% off first belts.

So for future sales, does AE do an email blast to their subscriber list?

I was a few days late to this one and missed out on a few things I really wanted so I would like to be prepared for next time!

Finally managed to make an order with the 2/250. I personally prefer getting the lists of shoes vs. the website (I was only ever able to use it in the early morning, presumably because the server is getting overworked). Interestingly, a bunch of shoes listed as 'closeout' ~1 month ago when the first news of the sale leaked out are no longer 'closeout' models, which is a bummer.

Anyhow, managed to snag an Elgin and a Burgandy Clifton in 13E. I was really hoping for a brown distressed McTavish to wear as a casual shoe, but unfortunately the pair they had was apparently not worth it (always worthwhile to ask them to lay eyes on the product, especially those of us up in Canada as the shipping is expensive!). I already have a walnut Sanford, which is pretty similar to the Elgin, but at that price I couldn't pass it up.


Some pics I grabbed from the internet:

Hope everyone else gets what they wanted from the 2/250!

Mavrik: That looks like a great order!  I love my Cliftons, and I just recently ordered those same Elgins and a pair of chili Daltons from the 2-for-$250 sale.  I'm relatively new to buying high-end shoes, so I debated whether I should buy a dress boot before I acquired a few more versatile varieties of shoe, but those boots are so expensive, even the seconds, so acquiring a pair for $125 seemed to be too good of an opportunity to pass up!

 

Question for the thread:  I work in a government office, which has a business formal dress code, but which isn't as clothes-conscious as I would assume many private companies would be.  Do you think that tan Elgins are too casual to wear with a blue suit?  I wouldn't wear them to court, or on days when I have important meetings, but could you wear them on regular office days?

Does anybody know on which lasts the Cliftons are made?

5 size is long and narrow. Go down 1/2 size and up 1/2 width from your Brannock size (and 1 last)

8 (108) last is rather narrow at the tow, but I would also go with my true Brannock size.

Of course, YMMV.

For those of you with narrow feet, do you use small shoe trees to fill your shoes? I had a collection of large JAB/AE shoe trees that were too big and were too wide to fit in the toe box. So I replaced them all with mediums. These are still too big. Wondering if I should go with the smalls or if I should break out a sander to sand down the sides...any ideas?

Is anyone interested in buying a brand new pair of these (Brown Shell Dundees) in size 9D for $500? I had a pair custom made a while back and they have been sitting in my closet since. They are Flawless, first-quality shoes. Pics are available, but I am posting here hoping to avoid the classifieds section.

I recently got the Elgins on Clearance.  I love them.  Mine do not have a rubber sole or a topy on them, but the picture you posted looks like they do.  Do yours?  If so, why do you think of it? I'm thinking of adding one, since these are already not very formal shoes.
