It was mentioned earlier that it starts on the 14th. I was trying to play around with it for the first time on some cordovan, and I don't see where I would enter the corp. discount card #... unless the % is taken off automatically after I enter my CC info, which I haven't tried yet.

I have the Color #8 chukkas but still want a pair of the brown CXL chukkas as well. The leather on each is different enough that I wouldn't feel like the boots were too similar. If one likes chukkas, they can both have a place in your wardrobe.

I took my Brixtons in to VIP shoe repairs (which I guess is B Nelson?) to have my heels replaced. They seemed to have really sanded down the edges in the back. I guess I can go over it with an edge dressing, but has anyone else experienced this with them? I've heard such good things about them here, but they cost twice what my usual cobbler costs and they take twice as long to get the work done.

The Brooks sale is next Thursday, the 14th.

Since they redid the website, you now just add your corporate card info to your profile once and it remembers you each time you login. The problem is that you cannot see the discount until the last page where you verify your order. Go through checkout and put in your payment info and proceed to the next page (you can still back out after this step). At this last "place your order" page you can then finally see the discount that is applied. If you want to test it out the everyday corporate discount of 15% should be applied on that last page today.

As a reminder, add any cordovans you might want to your cart by Wed. In the past Brooks has removed all evidence of these shoes during major sales and sometimes you can't find them even if you search by their catalog number. However, I have found that if cordovans are saved in your cart before the sale starts then they should still be there during the sale, although if you delete them (to change a size or color, for example) then they disappear. So add everything you think you might be interested in to your cart early and decide on Thursday.

While they may have changed things, I can verify that I did this procedure for the last corporate sale in October and it worked fine. And this was after they had switched to the new website design.

Thanks for the kind words on the Ravello PTB yesterday Gents.

Couldn't wait till Friday to have a drink....A Thursday morn Whiskey, Maiden Voyage.
(Thanks Steel28!)
There are a couple of little tanning issues/imperfections, but I have really grown fond of Whiskey lately (after 3+ years of being a Alden convert). Seeing how rarely the Whiskey LWB has been making the rounds lately, I'm gonna keep 'em !

Nope, the discount is on regular priced items only.

But in the past sales the everyday deals have stacked, like the 3/$225 dress shirts.

I was wondering how this worked with the new website.
I was playing around and I was able to add my corporate code to my profile but wasn't seeing the discount. I was unwilling to enter cc info and go to the last page though.
BTW, you can see if your corporate code is on your profile if you look in your address book.

Congrats on these beauties, sazon! Wear it in good health.

Great looking shoes. Nice socks as well, good look overall.

Quick question on shoe trees...I wear an 8D and according to Alden's size recommendations I should use a S; however I noticed that all the pairs I have received from the various retails have been a M. Should I be using a S or M? I never really have paid attention to the sizing but i notice and odd line on the outside of my #8 Barrie boot the other day and wonder if this was caused by the tree. Thanks!!

sazon, I feel you about it being a thirsty Thursday. Your whiskey LWB's are striking, especially with the cuffed pin-stripes and the argyles.
