    In store last weekend a lady wanted to return a handful of unworn men's shirts with original tags and packaging - but without a receipt. After a fruitless search of the computer records for the name, phone, CC, or any info to identify the purchase transaction the SA checked with her Manager and was instructed to deny the return. Apparently, the shirts were determined to have been from the 2003 line.

    Anecdotally at least, It seems the unconditional guarantee is not without conditions...although I suspect your shirts are much younger than 9 years old.

    Also, mailing items to Corporate or the mail return center might potentially have yielded better results in this case.

    If you want Shell Cordovan shoes definitely check out ebay. I have scored three pairs of Allen Edmonds' shell cordovans from different sellers in the past four weeks. All are in not-even-broken-in-yet condition (see the pictures) and the winning bids ranged from $84 to $120. The bluchers are AE's Leeds model, the tassels are Graysons, and the pinch penny's are Randolphs - all currently selling for nearly $600.[​IMG][​IMG]

    No they are NOT benchgrade.

    They are better than benchgrade but not quite as good as handgrade.

    I'm definitely glad I picked up a pair of the wingtip balmorals for around $290 on Christmas, but wish I bought some cap toes as well now that there still over $400 after the 30% discount.

    unless if you get lucky and your SA applies the 30% discount to already on sale items... even getting free overnight shipping for you to the store

    If you're looking for staples, it's a good time to buy. I picked up two dress shirts, a hooded seersucker shirt, and two pair of Milano chinos.

    Good time to buy shoes too.

    Would this be a good sale to get the 2 suits for $1600 deal?

    Would come to $1120 after the 30% discount so $120 more than retail of 1 1818 suit.

    Or will there be bigger discounts down the road?

    Yeah, can stack the 15% with the 30%.

    Sign up now and they'll give you a temporary number you can use online (and maybe in store?).

    I had done this last week, threw out my temp number cause I was going to cancel the card, but now wish I hadn't. My card hasn't come in the mail either.

    Oh well, I'm going to utilize the sale now and use the card when the Father day sale comes around.
