You don't really expect her to answer that do you?

My guess is that it is selling briskly and they have no reason to mark it down right now as the market is bearing the price.

Hey, who's side are you on here? Perhaps if they know there is some pent-up demand for it if the priced dropped to say, $250, then they might be inclined to mark it down.

Hehe, of course, my apologies. Perhaps somebody needs to introduce the folks at Bennie's to the concept of price elasticity of demand.

In the meantime, I am heading down there tonight to get me them chukka boots.

As far as I know this is the last of the mark downs, but I guess anything is possible!!!

Just by the by for any foreign purchasesr they have a fault with their internet purchases with the foreign/zip postcode and you have to use an email address

Here is their response:

I apologize for the inconvenience. It is a flaw with out shopping cart software. Please forward your order information to our sales department (sales@benniesshoes.com). They will be happy to assist you.

I am also copying this message to them, so either way they will be in contact with you shortly.

Thank you for your patronage.

Do the Grenson Timothy shoes fit like the AE's? I wear an 11D in the AE's, is would that be my Grenson size?

Also, Mr. Gnatty Rotten, how do they look in person? Are they antiqued? Would they go with a less Trad, more modern wardrobe?

I am not a huge fan of AE, so only have one pair, Lexington in size 11. I needed an 11 1/2 in the Timothy which again, is somewhat strange since 99% of my shoes are size 11 or under.

I am not sure antiqued is the best way I would put it, but they do look very nice in person, pictures do not do them justice. I would imagine they could easily be antiqued but I like them the way they are.

Incidentally, I am not sure I would hold my breath for them to get marked down, as I was in there tonight to buy those chukkas and the salesman told me the Timothy was the fastest seller they had. However, never say never.

has anyone gone into the store in atlanta? are there items on sale there aswell or just online?
post #100 of 186
Yes, the location on Piedmont. Its where the stock that feeds the website is located. They also have some that I didn't see on the web.

Hey, Do you have any additional pics of this pair? http://www.benniesshoes.com/catalog/.../8138-200.html The picture provided makes them look a bit blobby, but if they are shaped like the Clintons a few pages back in the thread, I would definitely bite. Any info?

Thanks but how do foreigners buy 'em when we can't work the site due to a computer fault with foreign postcodes. Can you send a Western Union money order?

Other SFers have suggested you need to go up a size on your US size. But if you are a USA 11E will you get away with it or will you still have to go up to 11.5D?

The problem with outside the US, is we are getting KILLED with custom fees, I just sent something to France and the shipping & custom fees were 2X the cost of the shoes. Sorry.

As far as the sizes go, we show what Grenson has marked inside the shoe. We don't make up the sizes and/or change the sizes. These shoes are marked with US sizes. The shoes are handmade so the sizes marked inside are written in ink.
