    Done. I ordered them (I know, no one is surprised). Also, ordered a Summit Ave belt. I would've ordered Strands in the last sale with the AMEX offer, but I probably have too many.

    Anyone buying the PAs in Merlot there are still some available on shoebank for $197 (had been $187 until just recently) that are merely closeouts since the color had previously been discontinued.

    The Merlot Strands look terrific. Allen Edmonds hasn't even finished making the oxblood-with-Dainite Strand I ordered during their last sale, and they already have me eyeing one in Merlot. Dammit.

    I have the McAllisters in merlot and now I want the strands. I'm going to have to resist the urge to buy them given that I still don't have them in Walnut. Also eyeing them in 5As but given that I have 2 pairs of 5A and the McAs in the color I have to just block the merlot sale banner.

    Just took these pics to try and show the differences in AE colors in real life, in relatively natural light, since the website colors are off IMO.

    Strands in Walnut, Dark Chili, Oxblood. Aschers in Bourbon. Fifth Aves in Brown.

    Same idea today. Man, I wish I could get an original Indy spec shoe on the 201 last.

    Anyone seen the new St. Johns in person? I think they look lovely on the website and I've been wanting a double monk...

    Nope. One shot, until they offer it again. However, if you know someone else with an Amex card...

    I am. But it will depend on how it fits me. Gonna go with 1sts since they are about the same price with the amex discount. If the PA doesn't work, I'll wait for the hopkinson seconds to go on sale in the future.

    Does it work on seconds, and do you need to activate it with the card company in any way? I may ask my roommate to buy a pair on my behalf.

    Yes, you need to activate the reward on your card (very easy to do). It works on anything sold by Allen Edmonds. Their seconds store isn't a separate entity and still reflects on your statement as an Allen Edmonds purchase.

    Got it. I was hoping to avoid having to ask my wife to activate an offer on her card, but, le sigh.
