I have rationalized my discounted rl purchases, but they're just nonsense excuses. I will enjoy every item from that order, I don't plan on selling or returning anything.

Mdubs makes me proud. I'd vote for him if he ran for office.

Thanks, you embarrass me. I don't think it was unethical and wouldn't lose sleep. RL made a conscience decision to acknowledge the discount. It definitely won't take them out of business. Buying for the pure intent of making a profit, could be breaking the rules of the EPP (employee purchase program).

I went 1/2 size down from what I consider TTS and what my Aberdeen lace-ups are....they are a bit snug but I believe they are the correct size.....I previously ordered a pair of natural CXL tassels from BB and they felt too large from the get go

Just to confuse things a little bit. I am a 10.5C TTS, go either 10.5B or 10D Barrie, and go 11B on the Aberdeen.

I have both the Full-Strap and Tassel in 11B and both fit like a dream. Actually might be my best fit. I tried on 8 different sizes at SF when I bought my tassels. 11B won. :-)

Apparently Kathy had me down for a 10.5E / 11D; the former wasn't ordered, and the latter didn't come in.  While I'm pretty sure I'm a 10.5D in the Tremont, that's water under the bridge now.

Which ones are discounted? The only one that is discounted for me are the 975's. Wondering if I'm doing something wrong.

Just the 975s and captoes I think

I'll repeat my question from yesterday to see if anyone has anything they can add.

I really think these are a great design.

Leffot did a fantastic job spec'ing them out.

So you went up 1/2 size and down a width?

FYI - The BB corporate discount does apply to shell. The LHS comes out to $455. I'm really tempted to order it at that price but will have to pick it up at some other time.

Ugh, so what did you do / say?  Are you on the list again?

 

Cheers,
