    No. As far as I could tell, there weren't any good 10.5D or 10E size shoes (only the casual shxt shoes). Maybe I should have called at exactly opening time.

    Just ordered Strands in Walnut from the shoebank for $199 with shoe trees for $15. Hopefully it won't be too bad- the representative I dealt with said the defect wasnt noticeable with the plain eye and if I had any concerns I could ship it back.

    Finally, my collection is done for now :) Dark chocolate Daltons (in the mail..), Cognac McTavish, and Walnut Strands :D

    I called the shoebank too. $199 just didn't seem like a great deal for Strands of Park Avenues. It probably IS, but after seeing lower prices, I can't go back to $199. Even still, they didn't have my size...
    Yeah....It sucks. As noted above, the same went for the shoebank, and I called them almost immediately after they opened.

    Bad luck Vinny. Maybe you can find something during xmas or boxing day sales. What are their sales usually like then if anyone knows?

    Yeah, I agree it isn't a great deal, but still a fair discount from what I've come across so far on the net. Perhaps I haven't looked hard enough though [​IMG] (impulse buyer; somewhat no patience here...)

    Thanks. I drew the same conclusions and returned them.

    Presidio and Ashbury were the only two in my size. There may be others.

    Ugh called the Shoe Bank...couldn't get the Randolph chili grain for $99 even though they show as closeout model on AE website:

    http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF4829_1_40000000001_-1

    The lady asked a gentleman and he said it won't be a closeout for the Shoe Bank until February or something? Man would have been a nice snag at $99 :(. They are $179 for seconds instead so I passed.

    I called jefferson outlet this morning @ 3am - ended up ordering 2 pairs:
    - $99 9.5D elgin, they didn't have a 9E or 9.5E so hopefully they aren't to narrow
    - $99 amsterdam for a friend of mine, if they had a 10D or 9.5E I definitely would have picked a pair up for myself

    I ended up getting black in 8.5D.

    I was contemplating between these and Strands but the price never came down in Strands. Overall i like them. I just got them today so i can post some pics after work

    The Mcclain looks stunning. I like the smaller brogue holes but unfortunately (or fortunately) they don't have a 9.5D.

    Didn't realize the McAllister came in Bourbon. Sounds like a great deal if that is in fact the case. No such luck for me today, I keep getting golf shoes and dial tones...
