Just wanted to share deals I've found on a few worthwhile shoes at Franco’s Fine Clothier out of Richmond, VA.

NOTES
:

  1. They don’t have the most sophisticated website, but they are helpful over the phone and by email if you have any questions.
  2. Only the Red Wing Embossed Moc Toes below are noted on the website as final sale, but my register receipt stated that all sale items are nonreturnable. However, that isn't stated anywhere on the website nor was it stated on my email receipts. I haven't had reason to check on that, but everyone should be aware.
  3. You are shopping at a true family business.

DEALS:
Red Wing Brogue Ranger for $189.90 (+tax) in both Black (Style: 8126; Sizes: 10, 11 & 12 D) and Brown (Sizes: 9, 10 & 12 D). That color looks like the darker 8127 Antique Brown which is no longer listed on the Red Wing Heritage website (discontinued?) instead of the lighter 8128, but you may want to call to confirm.
Comparison Price: $233-319 @ Amazon; $300(black)/$310(brown) @ Nordstrom

AE Flatiron for $246.90 (+tax) in Bourbon (Sizes: 9.5-12 & 13 D), Walnut (Sizes: 9.5-11 & 12 D), and Black (Sizes: 8.5-12 & 13 D).
Comparison Price: $335-365 @ Amazon; $345 @ Nordstrom; $365 @ Allen Edmonds & Macys

AE Strand for $244.90 (+tax) in Dark Brown Suede (Sizes: 8.5-12 D). Actually, it’s cheaper at Amazon at the moment: $223-233.

Red Wing Oxford?/Beckman? for $189.90 (+tax) in Brown (Sizes: 9, 10-12 & 13 D). I’m actually not sure if this is the Oxford (Style: 8053) or the Beckman (Style: 9042). The image is an Oxford, but the original price listed is more typical of a Beckman. You’d have to call to find out. I originally left a message about this shoe, but I never followed up on their return call after I purchased the Brogue Rangers.
Oxford Comparison Price: $230-250 @ Amazon; $240 @ Nordstrom
Beckman Comparison Price: $310 @ Amazon; $320 @ Nordstrom

Red Wing Embossed Moc Toe Beckman for $219.90 (+tax) in Brown (Style: 9030; Sizes: 9-10, 11, 12 & 13 D). Note: Stated as Final Sale.
Comparison Price: $256-370 @ Amazon
Black version (Style: 9029) previously reviewed on Dappered Threads.
