It was said that Claudio wanted to select customers that haven't been in store for awhile; assuming this was a reconnect promotion.
The best shoes by far are the Allen Edmonds in my opinion. Oddly enough our online doesn't state certain shoes are Allen Edmonds when they are in fact just that. I own our Peal & Co. double monk straps that look great but the comfort I get from my Allen Edmonds are hard to match.
When I don't feel so under the weather I'll answer the other questions I noticed.
I haven't gotten anything since before the semi-annual sale. Sad =(
I guess I'll just wait until the semi-annual sale in June.
