    Yeah, there's cambridges in burgundy shell i've been casually eyeing for a while. 399 seems to be my breaking point......ugh.

    Brown shell strands in my size at $399... This is one of those I know its a good price (depending on the defect) but also really shouldn't be buying yet another pair of shoes.

    What are the differences between the Brooks Fifth Avenue and the normal Fifth Avenue?

    Poron insole (I find it more comfortable but its a preference). V-tread on the bottom though it looks a little bit different than their standard v-tread (still black). Aside from this, and that it says Brooks Brothers on the sole, nothing else as far as I can tell. Both are recraftable.

    The heels are also different. The Brooks version has a dovetail heel and the AE version has the standard all-rubber heel.

    Apologies yes, this is also the case can't believe I left that out because I like the dovetail much more heh.

    You can always MTO a Bartlett! I'm not sure if they're negotiable on the MTO fee, but sometimes new stores will knock off 10-15%

    Bourbon McAllisters with dainite as its supposed to storm later. Slowly but surely the tiger striping is fading away.

    The shoebank tent sale was unexpected and I was certain they had nothing I really wanted. Wrong again. Sure enough, there was a pair of walnut and brown Shelton saddle shoes for just $147. It must have gotten lost as it was the last pair in the warehouse. Hope they fit.
