    Does anyone know if you can use the 25% off tanger coupon towards a current cordovan shoe purchase?

    By the way, can this coupon be used over the phone/email?

    I think you can use the coupon towards everything but sale items (e.g. you can't stack it on top of the 2 for $250 deal). This said, I don't think you can use it towards the shell cordovan shoes if they are still on sale for $299.

    I am pretty sure you can use it over the phone/email, but I haven't done it in person. I'd call the J'ville store first.

    Looks like brooks brothers is having their 25% off friends and family sale until 9/30. Should work on AE shoes.

    As the coupon is not on sale items, I don't think it would apply to cordovan shoes right now while they are discounted to $299. To access the coupon after purchase you only need to put your email address in here: http://www.tangeroutlet.com/US/pinkstyle/, so I think you just need to tell the store which email it was bought with and they look that up.

    Cincikid types much quicker than I do!

    I have to say, I'm really appreciating these. Very vintage looking, and it's nice to see an MTO that isn't shell for a change (not that they aren't beautiful too!).

    cincikid, you can or can't stack the coupon with the 2/$250 sale? I might call in and ask for a credit refund if you can.



    Thank you for the information. It would have been a really slick deal if I could have gotten 25% off $299 shell macneil.

    Now I'm thinking if I should still purchase them. [​IMG]

    I was on a particularly boring conference call, so I had some time to check the thread :)

    What is your opinion on split reverse welt on the Dalton? It looks pretty nice to me:

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/141581/allen-edmonds-appreciation-thread/26490#post_6518113

    But the normal flat welt also has a lot of appeal:

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/141581/allen-edmonds-appreciation-thread/27420#post_6548549

    I like how the flat welt looks elegant, but I also like how the split reverse seems to accentuate the fact it is a boot, and also seems to prevent the upper from looking "blobby".

    Thoughts?

    I realize this is not an AE-specific post, but given we have a good number of Horween fans in this thread, thought I'd pass along that Huckberry carries some casual wallets and watch bands made from Horween leather. Not shell cordovan, but still Horween quality.

    That is a pretty tough call. I see what you mean about the split welt making it look more boot-y. I am leaning towards the flat welt, tho. Maybe the split is too rugged looking for the Dalton...

    I've used it over the phone. The woman I spoke to asked me to forward my confirmation email from the donation with the link to the coupon. Not sure if that was necessary. She sounded unsure, but it worked.

    Allison said they can't produce this shoe, unfortunately. They don't have the Kent last any longer as well as the dyes they used. Ebay sounds like the only opion.

    Yeah, I am kind of stuck :-\. I already have a Dalton in burgundy cordovan on the flat welt, but a cappuccino cordovan dalton boot is so awesome I don't want to make the wrong choice.

    Looking at the photos online, it seems the Dalton would look more elegant on the flat welt. It also looks like the split reverse welt combined with the broqueing on the boot may be too distracting.

    However, the split reverse welt highlights the chili color of the welt more and makes the boot more "boot" like. Also the split-reverse seems to come out further so that the welt is seen more and thus making the shoe seems less "blobby".

    Anybody else able to weigh in?

    I do love the chili split on my cappuccino Dundee...
