    Seems to me like someone did an inventory analysis and figured it would be cheaper to unload them than to hold all that cash in inventory.

    There were talks of a sale of AE a little while back, but I can't imagine that's resulting in the sale on seconds. I haven't seen sales on first qualities on a more frequent basis that normal so maybe they are just clearing seconds inventory.

    That someone deserves a promotion!

    And, if he/she later decides that they need to increase their inventory of 12D's in shell, then I think we've found Paul's eventual successor.

    Seconds sales are pretty frequent IMO. The Labor Day and Rediscover America sales are annual occurences, so I think it's business as usual. With volume growth, there probably is (at least) a proportional increase in seconds quantity. Makes sense to unload that inventory to make room for the busy fall season and the new fall styles.

    I doubt they're being positioned to be sold...Goldner Hawn is pretty conservative and AE is presumably churning out the profits. They may look to cash out in IPO at some point, but I hope not.

    It is my understanding that the ownership was not looking to sell, they were looking for new investors so they could continue to expand. They are wanting to open new stores and open new production lines.

    Did you get this in an email? I feel like I'm on every mailing list they have but didn't get this one.

    Got my shell macneils in the mail today. Here is a pic. Main issue is that the right shoe laces are misaligned. What do you guys think. [​IMG]

    Your pictures don't seem to be loading, or is it just my browser?

    Interesting. With all the AE fans on this thread we could probably purchase a tiny minority share [​IMG]. Imagine us having the opportunity to give thread-sourced input to AE's ops! (probably would result in massive losses)

    Wow- congrats on the haul. I'm really digging the suede models and the BB Macneils. Great choices.

    There's an additional 25% off a single item at the Tanger outlet (where the J-ville store is) with the $10 donation to fight the breast cancer (http://www.tangeroutlet.com/US/pinkstyle/). Not sure if this is stackable with their current sale, but it's a sweet deal anyway.
