    The Allen Edmonds outlets usually have them for $49 or so. You can find similarly colored belts elsewhere if you look around, but if you need one quickly or don't have a less expensive store near you, the outlets are a good way to save $40 or so.

    These are my new Elgin seconds. There's a sort of dimple or indentation on the right shoe, between the toe cap and the throat, but I don't think people will be able to notice it, especially after a few polishes and some wear. What do you guys think?

    Also, these are my first pair of dress boots, also purchased at the seconds sale. I've never owned dress boots before, but at $125, these seemed like a good place to start. They also had tan suede Amoks in my size, but I already have dark brown suede desert boots, so I couldn't justify buying a pair that would occupy a similar niche in my wardrobe.[​IMG]

    Looking great.
    I love the blue line windowpane trousers.
    I had my Walnut shell daltons on yesterday.

    For some reason AE refers to the Brown suede Strands as Brogue for color...I was a tad confused when I ordered mine during the sale...on a side note I am starting to think I have too many shoes with wingtips, cap toes, stitching etc...I unpacked my Brown Suede Strands and my wife chirped in all your shoes look the same...LOL Actually getting 4 or 5 pairs of black AE shoes ready for sale.

    Hey guys, I was looking at this shoe.


    I am currently wearing a long branch in size 15D and it seems pretty comfortable.. How would a size 15C on this #6 last compare? I'm highly considering buying this shoe, because as you can imagine it is nearly impossible to find quality shoes in my size, and this seems like a steal.

    Thanks.

    For that price - I would give it a try - if they are a touch snug have them stretched

    The Riverhead outlet had them in my size! I wear a 15 (or, on occasion, 14D), so it might be that seconds and discontinued shoes remain in outlets longer because there are fewer customers who wear that size. The downside to wearing that is that many makers don't go that large, except for special orders.

    That was hilarious. Xray inspection -- so 1940s! They actually did this in many shoe stores with your foot in the shoe itself. Crazy.
    But I would definitely buy those rough brown shoes at about 6:40 (on the pressure lasting). AE, bring those back!

    Many of the procedures are the same, there are some recent videos that show modern procedures and what seem to be many of the same machines.
