    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

    I got the McClain in walnut, Amok in sand suede, and finch in navy/tan. All for $99 apiece.

    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...

    I'm not sure if anyone else is experiencing this but due to AE's current 2nds sale, I'm getting an itch to buy a pair of shoes just to buy :/
    I currently have these shoes in rotation, do you guys have any suggestions on a pair of shoes that could round out my collection? This morning I ordered a pair of Elgins.
    - Black PA
    - Black McTavish
    - Brown Kenilworth
    - Walnut Strand & Dalton
    - Dark Chocolate Dalton
    - Chili Byrons
    - Brown Neumoks

    Bucks - Man feels good buying a brand new pair of AE shoes in the two digit price range.

    Vinny - Yeah I stayed up until 3 AM for no reason LOL! Honestly you can probably buy and sell them for a profit haha :foo:.

    itsmejson - You can check Amsterdam bourbon in your size or Mcclain walnut both at $99 or perhaps Delray $159. You could use a split toe in your collection.
