Huh. So just call the Shoebank store and ask for the Stanford store opening 15% sale/discount? Anyone know how long it lasts?

Just a heads up my soon to be wife said no to my merlot strands for my wedding day. And the Park aves in burnished brown were too dark and simply a bit boring. So now I get to research some more! 
Sounds like you're already building future credits for when the addiction takes full effect!

Don't know how long but I called Paramus, my local outlet and they could not ? Would not offer the 15%.

When Paramus opened, their 15% off applied to all regular priced ShoeBank items but did not apply to sale items, though they did extend it to firsts ordered through their store I believe.

 

I don't think you can stack the 15% from any store opening onto any sales (or clearance) items.  If you got it, consider yourself lucky because I do not think its AE policy.

I believe you have to call the Stanford store, order through them and have them shipped to your location.  But RETAIL stores are not allowed to order seconds. 

 

On the other hand, OUTLET stores can order firsts.

 

Edit. Just to be clear, even though you order through Stanford, you're shoes will likely be shipped directly from AE to you.  But the store still gets the credit for the sale.

Channeling some Dr Seuss? Ha, love it.

On a side note, my auto correct wanted to change "love" to "loake!"

Might have to give them a call mwink[1].gif

Bill, who works in the Paramus store is really helpful and patient.

I've only seen him there later on in the day (the shop is open till 9 or 9:30).

Below is a comparison between my merlot PA's in 8.5 D, and my oxblood in 7.5 E.   As you can see, there's not a huge difference in color.  I kind of feel likeI bought a second pair of merlot, to be honest.  As I said earlier today, the 7.5 E is my best size.  

 

Oxblood is on the left, merlot on the right.

FYI, there's a few Lax Derby shoes on nordstrom rack.  Not sure why, but they are pretty cheap.

I have merlots in several shades, and one pair of oxbloods. The merlots vary in color from almost a purplish, to a deep burgundy red. The oxbloods are a lighter, brighter red. I love them the best. The merlots are fine, but I'll stick with oxblood moving forward.

I like the looks of those. Whenever this sleeper cell activates again, I'm going to have to pick up some casual options.

You could think about upfitting the strandmok with the combo tap sole on sale.

I'm thinking about pulling the trigger on these Sea Island loafers in bone suede on clearance. 
http://www.allenedmonds.com/clearanc...132-095-D.html

I like the light color but am wondering how versatile they will be. What can I wear these with?

I think your caution is well placed. AE usually has a "View with pants" section on the far right side of the various views of the shoes. In this case it is noticeably absent. It gives one the feeling that they might not have a good suggestion what pants would go with this shoe. I think it is safe to say jeans, shorts, and khakis. I don't think I could pull off any other combinations.

PSA: There is a pair of Ravello shell MacNeils in 12 E on the bay for $225.
