Trying to decide what I am targeting. Several of those prices are very tempting.

BTW, Jason in that store has been very helpful and friendly to me so far over e-mail. He seems to do a good job at describing the shoes that you inquire about as well. I'll have to do him a solid and make purchase from that store.
Hmm Yorktown in walnut or chili...both of course, right?

Quote from AE email:
¬†*Recrafting $50 promo cards will be inserted with completed recraft orders of the prestige and standard packages only. Not valid on refinishing and new heels packages. Offer valid for one time use on regular priced Allen Edmonds shoes. Not valid on Factory-Seconds. Not valid on Island Sandals, SWIMS, Slippers, Allen Edmonds non-shoe products, gift cards, Recrafting¬ģ services or previous purchases. Offer valid on one pair of regular priced shoes only for an individual customer and cannot be stacked with other offers. Offer has no cash value and cannot be redeemed for cash. Void if lost, stolen or resold. Allen Edmonds reserves the right to end this promotion at any time. Offer expiration date found on card.

 

I've been hoping for a promotion of any type on recrafting so I'm excited that we've got something but the fact that this $50 discount will only work on regular priced firsts really makes it a harder sell than I'd hoped. I'm really a seconds or sale-only type guy so looking at a new pair for $345 is still difficult.

 

This language has been written on their recraft-gift cards for years, but in the past, they have always honored them as a $35 gift card.  I have used them on clearance, shoebank, MTO and sales despite that language.  

 

Maybe they are more strict now, as it has been a year since my last recraft.  If I had a $50 card, I would first try it against a sale/clearance online website order.

Dark chili Mcgregors on cheap linoleum for a dreary Tuesday.

That sale would make the BB incredibly appealing. Works much better for those on the D width unfortunately. I'm interested in the Bartlett price for sure and perhaps a pair of Chili or Brown Cornwallis (I like chili but lack an actual brown shoe). Sale isn't officially announced and I've already marked 2 pairs for purchase. Barn Weasels indeed....

Are those seconds or firsts?  Either way, $199 Carlyle is a steal.

Thank you for pointing this out. I was hoping to hear something similar and help convince myself to take advantage of the promotion.

This looks like 2nds pricing to me.  Maybe someone will grab a pair of chili Cornwallis and post pics :-)

Nice. I was thinking "either a bowling alley or a basketball court" .

I really liked these strandmoks. Got them in yesterday a week after ordering from the AE site, not a bad turn around for my size.

Sorry man, I don't know.  Never had that issue, even with seconds.  I suggest sending the store you bought them from those exact pictures.  They can probably tell you if it's something serious.

Someone suggested you take a stiff brush to it (not horse hair). A page or so back. If it requires significant effort to get off then send them back if not get it off and use some edging for it if it leaves a discolored spot.

Thanks, I hadn't seen that response.  (A while back I stopped getting email notifying me of responses or quotes.)

I had something similar on a pair of Fifth St (or whatever the name of the bal boots are) 2nds. Turns out it was a brush hair or something that had dried in edge dressing. I was able to use a stiff brush to peel it off. It left behind a light streak, but I should be able to cover that up with dressing.

 

As @Lobster33 suggested, it wouldn't hurt to shoot those pics to your SA.
