    Ask the Hound about his posted vids on our (Alden) thread showing a man masturbating while caressing his shell cordovan shoes. He doesn't garner a great deal of respect on our thread either. He does have a point though, about "made in the USA." Regardless, AE is a great American company for which I have a ton of respect.

    Amok seconds are $99 or less through the AE outlets.

    They look like the Loake Strand (a great shoe, BTW, And my first foray into English shoes) but the broguing is different.

    the current list from shoebank lists some at $99 and some at $134., none lower than $99. but i'm very leary of AE seconds, esp. since it seems they can have some pretty noticeable damage to them, as we have seen above.

    My pair of burgundy clifton "seconds" arrived today. The "flaw" is simply a crease at the heel of the shoe where the sides are stitched together. Considering that I paid $160 (with the 20% off), I'm more than happy with my purchase, and don't feel as bad that I missed out on the Townleys.

    MH, I actually thought you made some good points before. Now, you're just trolling. Give it a rest.

    don't be such a jerk.

    someone posted a picture of their seconds which arrived damaged, someone else also just posted that theirs had damage as well just a couple posts above this one.

    I said i'm leary of the seconds and i'm 'trolling'? you need help man, big time.

    Always ask the SA to give the seconds a good look-over before shipping them. And make it clear you do not want them if they have noticeable defects. This procedure has served me well for the few times I have ordered seconds.

    will Shoebank do this? i was under the impression that you take what you get with them, or you can pay to ship them back to make a return.

    I'll answer based on my experience with Shoebank. They do for me. :nodding:
