    So for this seconds sale, which number do I call to order a pair or two? And is it only by phone? Or is there a way to email/do it online?

    And to clarify, the prices listed in that flyer posted earlier in this thread (e.g. ~$135 for some models) are what we would pay for those, and any models not listed there are still 15% off the seconds price, right?

    Thanks.

    Thanks to both of you for the advice.

    I'll basically be using it to replace a cheap pair of darkish walnut chukkas (now on their last legs) I've worn as my go-to fall casual shoe for years. I'm gambling that the daltons, possibly with a coat of dark brown polish, can fill the same niche.

    Hello Styleforum! I have been lurking around here for a while and finally decided to jump in. I am breaking in a new pair of AE Finch shoes today. I love the two-tone look of this Rough Collection saddle shoe.

    Cheers,

    Chris

    Proper crease... on the 9.5D's, the crease is on the line of the broguing.

    Your comparison is spot on. The Eastports are much less nice looking and are much more "I've given up because I'm an old old man"ish. The Westport and Harbour is much more classic and timeless looking, like the Sperry Authentic Original. Even the tan baseball one ("Shortstop") is a much better look in my opinion. Again, the Eastports just look like some Tommy Bahama type shoes that retirees would be wearing to a Jimmy Buffet concert on a cruise.

    262-284-7158 is the number for the factory store. You have to do it over the phone.

    I didn't see any pricing flyer, but as a point of reference, the Dalton's I just ordered were $257, including tax. They retail at $390.

    It sounds like an excellent replacement for the worn out chukkas.

    I'll second the rec for the Player. The 2 last fits me, and I have the Player's Shoe in walnut calf. LOVE it.

    The Finch is one of my favorites. I think AE hit it out of the park with their first round of Rough Collection shoes that were introduced last year. I'm not a big fan of the more recent Rough offerings.

    Likely the truffle (AKA cappuccino) will not be available. Lighter color shell is hard to come by, it has to be perfect before you start with few blemishes and it takes 6 months for Horween to produce. Because of the increased demand the rarer browns are harder to come by for both AE and Alden. It never hurts to ask however.

    Left top to bottom: walnut, black, #8. Right top to bottom truffle (cappuccino), dark brown.

    Left to Right: dark brown, cigar, truffle, walnut. This is all of the brown shell colors offered in the last couple of years by AE that I am aware of.

    How does the normal brown (like the strand) fit in? AE told me it's a different color from dark brown.

    Been waiting a long time for this photo. Very nice man. I think I have enough walnut shell, but one day, those truffle Dundees will be mine.
