I watched the video on shell cordovan. (http://putthison.com/post/5219725232/how-leathers-are-made) I know I had a cordovan strap I almost ordered for my Panerai at one time but I didn't realize it was so durable.
Does anyone have any pics they would share on this type of AE shoe? What shoe is the best in this leather of AE offerings? Is it worth the price and why? $650 is a pretty penny. I do realize you get what you pay for however do they ever go on sale?
Most shell cordovan on shoebank is on sale right now for $399. Also, you can order order for 15% off during a grand opening sale whenever a new AE store opens. I've done both and don't know any other way to get shell at a discount...I've never seen it go on sale.
