    There are new clearance listings up on the AE site. I just jumped on a pair of Ridgeways in distressed olive.

    I called our local AE store and they looked up inventory in the Walnut shell Dalton for me in seconds, and said it was showing $539 for the seconds price. I had them order some black shelll seconds daltons earlier in the week and they came up 299. I could be wrong (or they could...)

    Number of pairs of AE shoes in my room yesterday: 1

    Number of pairs of AE shoes in my room today: 5

    Long time reader, first time poster. Just thought I'd share this recent Nordstrom Rack find. The model name is Schautal, same as the tan suede version posted here a while back. But this appears to be in the Rough Collection leather. Got them for $229

    Loads of new clearance items, including shoes I have never seen before and others that haven't been sold as firsts for a long time.

    I bought some shell patriots a few days before the $299 sale. They were $360 as well. By the time they shipped (yesterday, Friday) the $299 sale was in place. I figured it can't hurt to ask them to give me the $299 price retroactively. Think I'm asking too much?

    Being just a few days and the fact they shipped after the sale started I personally don't think that is asking too much at all.

    Not at all, ask for it. There are similar stories in this thread and I believe it is very likely they will honor the sale price.

    As I'm new to cordovan I'm not entirely sure how to care for them. I looked up the mac method but I have a question - is it ok to use the same brush I use on my calf shoes? It probably has some conditioned and polish residue on it.

    Cordovan is expensive. Brushes are cheap. Do the math.
