    Hey, thanks! I searched and found your posts, as well as my reply to you post! Duh....

    Anyway, I just ordered Quinton in brogue and Strawfut in brown/brown. Looks like the Strawfut are firsts? I guess it's not selling well...

    Thanks - they really are awesome. I had almost given up looking for suede caps and was about to take the plunge into English makers when these appreared on eBay. They only had a few wears on them and I think I paid $130 to the door for them...it certainly wasn't more than that :slayer:

    Nice! Now I have to decide if I should wait for the Nortstrom Anniversary Sale and hope they have the Strands on sale, or just go with these. Does anyone know if the quantities are expected to be limited for the non-closeout items (the Strands aren't being discontinued, right)?

    Any thoughts on the new webgems-- the Kasmuk? I kinda like the brown and olive ones. And they're long wings in the 2 last.

    I'm guessing this is a seconds sale then, no first quality?

    I arrived at a quandary just recently, while I was shopping at the Allen Edmonds store today. I do like to dalton boots, but let me ask everyone this, what praytell does one wear the daltons with? I can only really fathom wearing them with jeans, for a borderline cowboy look. That can't be it, can it?! :confused:

    This isn't a conservative look but pairing the walnut Daltons with dark blue slacks or a dark blue suit would look pretty striking. Again, more fashion-oriented than business-oriented, I guess. Just my take.

    Just got back from the rack and found a nice pair of brown hinsdale for $219 - anyone have experience with these? I still haven't found my perfect size/last combo - i wear an 11d in the 5 last (strands) and they are a touch tight, but manageable - I got these in an 11.5d and they actually fit great. I think these are on the 8 last, it has a euro look to it (at least to me) with a bit longer toe. I did not think I would like this, but I gave them a shot at the price and I think they are cool. Thoughts?

    As to what Nordstrom will have, I'm not sure. I had a :brick: moment when someone said that there will be no bwn PA's (or strands?) on sale.

    For me, one good thing about Nordstrom is that you can try the shoes one in person and they will special order E or thinner sizes for no charge (when you are being fitted).

    Spoke to a Nordstrom salesman, he said they start getting extra stock for sale items two weeks before the sales start, so they should know around that time.
