    My plan was to get this as a more formal shoe since I don't really have anything that qualifies right now. Adding the navy polish was just to give it a little color and appease my qualms about wearing black shoes

    Opportunity to get a sweet deal (less than $100) on a slightly used pair of Rutledges. They are 8.5D. I wear 8.5D in the 8 last and 8E in the 5 last. Do you guys think these will work? Even if I have to go tongue pad and insert, it may be worth it given the price.

    Given the price it seems that you could sell them for at least that much if it doesn't work out? If so, worth a shot.

    I believe they have always charged extra for this, although I think it was cheaper last year. They do have a smaller selection, including the walnut Strand as a current option, where you can order with the combination sole for no extra charge.

    Yes, but the shipping gets it up to around $14.

    I chose to go at another store with free shipping at $14.90 with the split toe instead of the solid toe:

    Great move! I picked up both the brown and burgundy Patriot's from Jeffersonville during the last 20% off sale for $360 each, no tax in Mn. on shoes. I wear my brown ones everyday around the house and yard, they haven't sat still long enough to every have seen shoe trees.

    My coffee cup is an 11 oz.custom crested Military Art ceramic mug from the USS America that is 24 years old. 5 years ago it cracked into about 6 large pieces so I glued it together and have been using it every day since. Monday morning went through the garage to work with the dog at 5 AM and felt something strange, looked down and the cup was falling apart in what seemed to be slow motion from my hand with just the handle staying behind. It hit the cement floor and shattered into hundreds of pieces soaking me from my knees to my brown shell Patriots. Last night I finally got some time to clean them, spent about 15 minutes with Reno, damp rag, brush and microfiber buffing cloth. Just another reason to love shell. And what is left of my coffee cup:

    The latest Sanford does not have the original number of laceups as the 1999 version did

    Here is a photo of the original 1999 version:

    More laceups, in my opinion, is a much better style.

    That said, the Strand would look better because it has more laceups.

    I put my glasses on to look at it this time and you are correct [​IMG]

    There is also a customer ID number so must be this time they are restricting it.

    To Newcomers:

    Black is very appropriate for business dress at an office. Black would be included in any long term AE collection.

    David: have you received any compensation, discounts or free services from Nordstrom in exchange for a promise to spam this thread with constant posts telling people to buy things at Nordstrom, instead of Company X?

    Yes, David, but it's not the only choice, which was the point of my post. A point that you seem to have missed in your haste to spam this thread for Nordstrom.

    Man, that bourbon wholecut is a beautiful shoe. I'm not particularly a huge fan of the 333 last, but I'll have to try it on nonetheless when it arrives at my local AE store.
