From what I read if you do buy you should use the whole card right away or you could be totally out.

 

Anyone actually have a good experience with this cardcash?


I have used them several times before.  They're legit.

So did I. I guess they just don't care about the Loake export ban, lol.

 

Hopefully they'll continue shipping Loakes to North America

As mentioned previously by @Lobster33 I believe Robinson's Shoes gets around the export restrictions because they are based in Ireland.

North Ireland, though, which is considered the "UK".

 

Anyways, however they get around it or if they simply don't care, im a happy camper. Loake 1880 can be had for $180 US for firsts which is unreal value!

I'm stumped too.  Maybe because they are not part of England?   Oh well, $180 is a steal.  I paid $184 for a pair of 2nds, so you guys did better than me.

Hell yes. Boy, I wish I had gotten in to the AE game in time to pick up a pair. Only one left in what's supposed to be my size is the Khaki Grain version. I tried them on while at the Port Washington outlet and they felt a little big.

 

Also, nice cords! Digging the crease. Temps are dropping here, so I'm looking forward to working them into the pants rotation. I've got three new pairs that haven't even made it out of the house yet. One in nearly that same color.

Thanks. It's too bad that they don't have your size -- seconds on the tan McTs are all the way down to $97, which is insane. I think I picked these up last year as seconds for $137. This is the first time out for the blue cords -- got them from the BB sale at the end of the winter season last year and held them in reserve over the spring/summer, just waiting for a day like today.

There is some great inspiration in this thread.

 

For my first post, I thought I'd put up my newest pair.

I am thinking natural or Navy cordovan cornwallis.. 

 

I didn't know natural shell was part of this too. Well that changes things...

 

Natural: Strand, 1st ave, Leeds, Jefferson 2.0

Natural shell is in play?  Wow...   I wish I was up for it...  :(

Guess what? I got a fever, and the only prescription is more wingtips!

 

FWIW, they read a lot more brown than green - much more subtle in some ways than the olive Strandmok, and super-comfortable.  I really like the single butyl sole.  Not a great match for khakis to my eye, but freakin' awesome with jeans.  I didn't win the lottery on even coloration, but I don't care about it any more - they're really good shoes.

The addition of natural shell to this trunk show has me nearly turgid with anticipation.  However, I was all set to pick up one or two shell dundee seconds and I guess those are not going to be around anymore.  Tough call since these are both apparently "rare" items and I am a complete sucker for that kind thing.  Guess I'll split the difference and grab one of each- a shell dundee and natural shell something or other.  Thats the obvious answer around here, correct?  A natural shell macneil, Jefferson or First Ave. sound perfect.
