Thanks. Looked on the seconds list the past few months and no luck. Leffot is near my apartment so will likely just buy there since it appears no deals are available elsewhere.

Very possible you won't find a ravello nst boot, and perhaps not a ravello nst shoe. Neither one will be on sale.

Very possible you won't find a color 8 nst boot, but you should be able to find a color 8 nst shoe. Neither one will be on sale.

If anyone is interested in acquiring lightly used Alden shoe trees (Medium) or lightly used BB shoe trees (Medium), PM me. The BB shoe trees are basically the same as the Alden shoe trees.

So I am looking for a nice boot for the season.  Need the following:  WaterLock Soles, Storm Welt, Double Leather Soles.  Not sure of the preference of speed hooks or not, mostly worn casual denim, chino.  I just don't see this make up anywhere.

Does Brooks Brothers ever discount the unlined LHS, if so when is the sale? 

post #35661 of 87792
Akatsuki, Namor has a killer Ravello NST boot on the aberdeen for sale which is a great deal if you're a size 12

Chipshot, brooks bros has their next corporate sale on oct 18th. (IIRC the discount is either 20 or 25%)
They take all shell off the site when the sale starts, but the last time this sale came around I put a pair of unlined LHS in my cart the night before and they rang up with the discount when the sale went live the next day.

edit: just checked my receipt. discount last corp sale was 25% and saved me 149.50 on a pair of unlined shell LHS.
I actually didn't buy online, but screengrabbed the checkout screen showing the discount applied, and then showed the clerk at my local BB the pdf and got the discount in store.

Many thanks for this, the unlined version is perfect here in the hot desert.  is IIRC the code?  Any savings is welcomed with shell.  Yea I was a day late on the last sale and it did not reflect as the shell cordovan was pulled off the site, I called customer service with the "what up" and the gal said they pull all the shell for the sale.

you're very welcome,

IIRC = "If I Recall Correctly"

that said, IIRC, no code is needed you just need an active Brooks corp card and corresponding # to trigger the discount

That seems high to me. I got hit with about $67. And frankly most of that was erroneous since it was duty because the origin was marked incorrectly. Unfortunately, my experience suggests that UPS isn't going to care. They'll make you take it up with CBP directly, and that's a hassle.

I am usually an 11e in AE, so I suspect these would be too large

You can try seeing if CitiShoes has the ravello NST in your size. They are listed as "Brandy shell cordovan"

http://www.citishoes.com/pg7.htm

 

Also J. Gilbert has a color 8 NST boot on the Plaza, with commando sole. They also have the blucher too

http://www.alden-of-carmel.com/index.cfm/Shoes-Norwegian_Front_Boot_254.htm

 

If you have preference towards one last over another though this may be problematic.
