Just saw this here. I'm in need of my first real pair of brown dress shoes before I head out to clinical rotations in 6 months, any input on the Cambridge vs. McClain?

Saw it and was wondering the same thing. Looking at the Strand myself.

I've had the Strand in walnut for a few months now (5-6) and super pleased with the shoe. While it's not a wingtip, I do like that the captoe has broguing. Also, the heel looks nice, with sort of a gradient of colors going on.

I find that AE shoes on sale fall within a "reasonable" price range for me. Personally, I'm debating getting the Bayfield boot.

Get some Martegani Lucca2 instead. According to that page, they're also on sale (from endless.com, which is affiliated with Amazon).

Thanks for the heads up.

Just picked up another Presidio - with default rubber sole this time.

On a side note: John Lobb just sent me an email saying the South Coast Plaza store has a sale on the 12/4-12/11.

Between this and the Brooks Brothers sale, I just spent ~$1000 in a couple of days. Thanks styleforum!

Clicked through to amazon from the link provided, followed sale link on amazon, found a pair of chelsea boots I wanted, and no discount was applied upon checkout. I tried the same thing, clicking through from amazon's email to me, following sale links all the way. No discount applied on checkout. Classic bait-and-switch IMO.\\

Edit: Love your Martegani Lucca2s, bleachboy. I would 've bought a pair myself, but I have a similar pair of shoes in the same color, as well as a pair of the Lucca2 in shell cordovan.

I also got the discount on my AE purchase. Maybe it is only certain brands?

+1. I know I read somewhere in there that not all brands were subject to the discount, though. If there wasn't a link to the "special offers" page, then the shoe didn't qualify.
