    This is probably the best price you'll see from them at this point. Two years ago, I got my walnut Strands from Nordstrom for $240 during their July anniversary sale, but I don't think the price will dip that low anymore. After all, they've raised the MSRP twice since then.

    Nice rotation! Good representation of a number of styles and leathers. Clearly you need more chukkas. You seem to be Strand-deficient (although the Lobb beats it any day of the week). I need to get some Vass or Dinkelacker into my life. I'm surprised at no C&J, is that a width availability choice? And considering you like double monks, I'm surprised you don't have the Lobb Chapel (imo, the most beautiful double monk around).

    No. They're not the same.

    Just like the pic right after your post, dark blue goes well with casual. Blue jeans and strands make a great combination for a night out at the pub or to see local music, for example. Something I do often.

    I'd have ordered them if they came in any last that actually fit my feet.

    Agreed. I really didn't want to buy the walnut McCallisters that I purchased last month so soon after buying a pair of AE's, but that odd Bloomingdale's sale where they matched the anniversary sale price and let you use coupon codes was too good to pass us. Even the RDA prices for calf firsts will probably flirt with $300 this year.

    If I didn't have a pair of Strands I'd be all over them for $225.

    I almost ordered a pair about thirty minutes ago, but after talking about it with my sales reps, I decided that since what I REALLY want is a pair of blue Leeds or Macneils, I'm going to wait for the trunk show this fall.

    Just call a store and place an order. I'm sure they'll still let you place one. When I was on the phone with one of my reps earlier, he said that the website would soon start showing that they're sold out, but they're still taking orders until tomorrow.

    Totally agree about the Leeds. I'm waiting for the Leeds or Carlyle.

    Yea I hear you on the Carlyle, that would look great in Blue, based on that Blue shell Pic that has been posted here a bunch. Sounds like your SA is a reasonable guy..mine would have tried to make me buy them and then go to the trunk show as well!

    Wait, does this mean there will be a blue Leeds for sure this fall? Did the sales rep state that?

    I just picked up a pair this afternoon, and had to drop down a half size (width was the same).

    No sorry, I more meant he knows how to sell. We didn't talk about Fall sales or any future plans explicitly but both employees were excited about the color.

    Purely speculation but considering it sold out if the results and reviews are there I would imagine it could make sense in their current pallet of colors. I would think a darker color like that is easier to QC since it covers up imperfections in leather easier than say a Walnut or the Bourbon dye.

    So few CJ models are available in G width, and to get them special ordered requires a hefty markup. If I can get a Vass MTO for 440-550 euros, I don't see a reason to go for CJ unless it's a makeup that I absolutely need. I did try a Pembroke in G width that fit pretty well, and I was close to buying it, but it walking a redundant with my suede Budapesters. And a pair of Alden shortwing a that I have preordered.

    The Lobbs replaced my brown shell strands. I got them (1st quality) for a steal during Bespoke-England's "Black Friday" fire sale. I would get the Chapel in a second if I could find my size at a good price. Not quite ready to break the 1K barrier yet, though Lobbs are incredible. And the 7K last fits me like a dream.

    Thanks for the compliment!!
