There is a 20% off coupon code 12SUMMER that can be used on Endless.com, and there are quite a bit of AE models eligible for the promotion

Below are a list of eligible AE shoes (too bad Dalton isn't one of them)

Strand in the wild!

Eddie George at the ESPYs. On a side note, I don't understand why so many of these wealthy athletes, most of whom are wearing tailored suits, can't get the right length on their coat sleeves.

Sale looks active for Nordstrom cardholders.  Non-members...7/20.  Don't know if I can wait that long.  Interested in the mctavish myself

Thanks!  I may go with the black PAs.  I actually don't have a black cap toe in the rotation.

In general, I favor buying seconds way over considering used shoes. Also, the defects on the seconds tend to be minor compared to ebay "new with defect" ones (in which case I've seen ripped leather... seriously).
However, when AE's go on sale (like the Nordstrom sale coming up), firsts on sale is the way to go, considering the price difference for firsts on sale and seconds is minimal at that point. Speaking of which, time to grab another pair of strands and maybe mctavishes!

Agreed. I usually buy seconds, unless there is a sale on firsts for the particular model I'm after. I've never paid more than $225 for firsts of any of the standard price level calf models.

Until now, the only blemishes I've seen have been minor and superficial in nature. A chip on the welt, a small mark on the vamp, maybe some stitching that is ever so slightly off center...all unnoticeable to the untrained eye. I've heard a few stories of undesirables, but overall AE is very accommodating when it comes to returns on 2nd's and are very willing to get you a replacement, if available in your size.

It's a great way to be able to afford numerous models that you're interested in, that you might not be able to afford at the full retail price point.

I'm contemplating getting a pair of Dalton seconds. But haven't ordered AE seconds before, not really sure what to expect.

Only other noticeable flaw is a very minor stitching error on the back of one of the soles, near the heel. They really are a great looking shoe, so I may look at taking it to a cobbler if AE doesn't have any replacements available. The additional sole, heel and footbed details are quite nice when compared with the standard line products.

Some people like it that way  .  .  .

And why people wear brown shoes with black suit. ? Even dark navy is questionable.

Thanks! 10D. Though, I'd size down 1/2 size because of the 5-last, if I had to do it again.

I probably agree with the brown shoes/black suit. However, brown shoes and a navy suit is completely fine and far from "questionable."

The no brown shoes with black or navy suits to me is the older more conservative rule or guideline. Probably still holds true on Wall St and financial type institutions. I agree that brown shoes with a black suit doesn't work. Brown or even walnut with a navy suit is very appealing to me and much more fashion forward. But maybe not on Wall St!!
