    Haha!

    BTW, mine too. I can't post pics from my phone anymore. Which is rather unfortunate. I normally go thru the mobile site...maybe I'll try Tapatalk.

    I know you guys in here might be a little biased but I am looking for a suede shoe and I hear the Neumok is on for $149 during the factory second sale so I might see if they have a pair in my size. The problem is that I already have a couple of wingtips including both the Dalton and McAllister, should I hold out and MTO something in a PTB in suede or maybe get the Alden PTB?


    Here is my collection of shoes, help guide my next shoe purchase... (not shown: BB Park Ave in Dark Brown, just bought from a member here)

    ^ I got a list that has suede Strand seconds as $179. That's tough to pass up

    Tif,

    I can't post pics from my phone either. It looks like it's working. Takes a bit of time and then the message is just blank.

    I also get ads over the quote button typically also. Drives me crazy.

    My $99 Black Friday Long Branch seconds are by far the most comfortable AE's I have. I can't stop wearing them.

    I haven't been able to post pics from my phone for a couple of days, and it's been hit and miss from my computer. I think there is an issue with SFs website.

    Would they be as comfortable if they were $350 Full Retail firsts?

    You may want to wait. You can often get the Brooks Brothers Strand for $159 or less when all BB seconds go on sale; not to mention 2 for $300 or 2 for $250 factory seconds sales that sometimes occur.

    I noticed on the AE website that AE suede strands are on closeout with very few sizes left. Not sure how the seconds inventory is, but they're gone once they're gone.

    While the suede strands are great I already have the Kenilworth in brown, I want it in walnut so I have some variety.

    Let's hope it's sooner than later for the sale. I'll keep an eye out.

    Thanks Kentyman

    As you may know, the Strand is usually a featured shoe in the annual Nordstrum's Anniversary sale each July-August. The walnut anyway. First quality Strands went for $219 in 2012 and $229 this year. If it were me, I'd hold off for a sale on either 1sts or 2nd's.

    Years ago I mailed in a pair of black McAlisters for recrafting. I had probably worn them for 15 years prior to that, entirely without shoe trees and only very rarely cleaning and polishing. There were holes in each the size of quarters.

    I got a handwritten note back in the mail saying "Regretfully, your only options are for us to return these to you 'as is' or we can give them a dignified burial here." [​IMG]

    So, there is a limit to what even AE can accomplish.
