    Any of you guys get your cedar shoe racks from Jos A Bank?

    Everything is 60% off and I'm thinking about grabbing some.

    thanks.

    Jos. A. Banks shoe trees are good - they're basically the same as AE / Woodlore.

    But, there are better prices on them. JAB fairly regularly has buy 1 get 2 (or even 3) or 70%-off sales. Shoe trees end up costing less than $10 then.

    Yep, few times out of the year, they are $25 for 3.
    Could be a sale next week but who knows

    Two things.

    1) I see Scotty was asking about cedar shoe RACKS, not TREES. I have no opinion on them. Though, the same thing I said about the sales still applies. buy-one-get-two (or three) is better than 60% off.

    2) Anyone seen the new Hales in person? It's on the 108 last. Looks like a nice alternative to the FA.

    You can get the Mitchell (e.g., moneyclip wallet) without the logo.

    I saw them on the 2 for $250 (so, $125), but there were only a few, only in limited sizes, and they were gone in a blink.

    I got my trees from Jos A. Bank for 7.50 apiece shipped to my door a few weeks ago during the 70% off sale. I also got the rack but haven't bothered assembling it yet. I presume it's essentially the same rack AE sells on its website.

    Please let us know your experience with the racks. Reading some old reviews from josbank.com, they didn't get the best ratings but those reviews are almost a year old.

    Thanks.

    I actually think that casual black shoes (McTavish) will look just fine. I'd also look at the Loden green. I have Alden reverse chamois Indy shoes and Trickers PTB in Loden green and they work great with black and dark navy jeans. Of course, Burgundy will look great too.

    Sure. I will probably go ahead and put it together over the Thanksgiving weekend. I got three racks, which should fit 12 pairs. Paid $33 shipped in total.

    Yeah, it's been around for a while I believe as I came across a pair last year at the Nordstrom Rack, super comfortable shoe. They looked really nice in person and I wouldn't hesitate to buy them if they filled a need in my rotation.

    Yeah, come to think of it, I remember seeing Daltons in the 2/$250, but it was limited to grey calf IIRC the time I saw them.
