    I recently received my first pair of AE cordovans, Cambridge seconds from the $299 sale:

    I already have mink oil renovator for my calf shoes, which I like very much. Is mink oil okay for cordovan or do I need to get VSC or Saphir Reno for these puppies? And can I use my burgundy paste polish that I use on my calf, or again do I need a special cordovan product?

    Is there a glossary somewhere explaining all the different welts and other details? Jubei's pics of his Cliftons are making me want an MTO, but I'd like to know all my options.

    Yes, last year's page. Scroll to the bottom and you'll see the 2012 copyright.

    Not to mention those dates equate to a Tues to Wed sale duration, if you look at a 2013 calendar. Last year's...

    I don't feel so bad now.

    The Sandersons are great. Wait, do I own the Sandersons? [​IMG] or the Saunders? Blast you, Ralph Lauren, for picking out these S names!

    The Aberdeen is one of my favorite AE models. It's essentially a version of the MacNeil (or so AE refers to it on the website) but made on a 2 last and with a more casual twist. It's absolutely great for the foul weather or for the overnight trips. I have a pair in brown which I've been wearing for about a year and I just got another pair to keep in my closet, since it's being discontinued. This said, I must admit the shoe looks pretty ugly in grey. While $87 might be a good deal, it is currently on sale for $125 and since this is a closeout style, you'll likely get first quality.

    I'm not aware of AE ever sending out first quality shoes to the Shoe Bank just because they're closeouts.

    The closeout Sanfords that I got from the ShoeBank were firsts.

    I have never handled the Amok so I cannot say. I can only describe the suede as being rough and "not of high quality."

    RTP, I am pretty positive they are indeed Alden waxed LWB for J.Crew.

    Thanks for the recommendation MWS. Look's like they are made in the US. Will definitely check them out.
