    Does anyone know when the sale ends? I'm going to be in NYC from Dec.27 - Jan. 3. I'd love to catch the sale.

    I'll be stopping by tomorrow morning while unrealistically hoping for some decent discounts on the Sutton, Beckett, Luffield, or Vale.

    After seeing some peoples' shoe shots on here, I definitely want to reexamine the Pewter, Red, Blue, and Plum colors. Sales are great for exploring new things. [​IMG]

    (sound of choir)


    Wow, I follow this thread regularly, how could I miss this pic? This is probably the best photo shoot of the most beautiful shoe of all shoe porn pictures. Even better than the ones posted by Sysdoc.

    Aportnoy, you need to take better pictures of your shoes collection, they deserve better. You need to turn them into orgasmic shoe porn, not simply shoe porn.

    Straight from the source - Allen-Edmonds Shoe Corporations, Port Washington, WI. ((262) 235-600 - maybe they have more?)

    I emailed Allen Edmonds about this shoe and this is the response I got:

    "Thank you for your interest in our Allen-Edmonds Shoes. The Bancroft style is one of our European styles. We do not offer this shoe domestically.

    If you have any other questions please call toll free 800.235.2348 and speak with one of our representatives. "

    So how did you attain it?

    Good work man! The EG will look even better after you develop a patina with that color.

    That AE is literally the best, most-earth shattering offering they have. I never understood the logic of not selling something in one area when there is demand... Must... find... way...

    Plaintoe with medallion rules!

    The AE looks every bit as good as the JL. If you didn't say or post picture of the soles, I'd have guessed it's a Vass R last. Why all the models made for European or Japanese markets look better than American ones? Why do they keep dumbing down on us?

    My cat did that all the time, especially during cooler months. If I forgot to close the socks drawer, she'd squeeze right in and make herself cozy and comfortable. If the drawer was too full, she'd dig and push some of the articles out on the floor. One time I closed the drawer without realizing she's napping inside! Boy, do I miss her.
