    As above, pretty much the same. Not complaining, just seems curious getting a receipt 5 weeks after a sale. And to my surprise, this was the only receipt I had although I did have previous confirmation of the sale.

      Stating an observation, not a complaint. The peculiarity was the delay in receiving the e-receipt when I usually have gotten them within minutes.

        I ordered some Surrey waterproof Chelseas from the recent sale. Got them in yesterday, they are firsts though one shoe appears slightly darker in color than the other (not enough for others to notice or me to care). The toe is more burnished than I would prefer. The shoes fit great and are extremely comfortable. First Chelseas I’ve liked on my feet. They came with shoe bags. For <$200 I am satisfied.

          I ordered some Grayson loafers Sunday night. The charge shows pending on my CC...yet I’ve not received a confirmation email, much less notification that my order has shipped, and it’s Wednesday. In contrast, my Lululemon order from literally 10 minutes later the same day, is set to be delivered (from OH, I’m in MO) tomorrow. You’d think they could at least acknowledge the order.

              Didn't even know these existed until your post. Crikey!

Once in hand, the McCallisters I ordered look like I welted the soles. Had perforations that were not cut out completely. I sent them back, received a pair of Fifth Avenues as a replacement and the leather was blotchy with clear imperfections like scuffs and scars. Sent me another pair of Fifth Avenues from their new “coffee” brown. When I think of coffee I think of dark brown, not the girly coffee that has more cream than coffee. The shoes were the latter.

                Time to find a new brand.

                I hate the new coffee brown color. The regular/dark brown color has apparently been discontinued, at least for now.

                The coffee color looks like something a senior citizen would get for his orthopedic shoes.

                  Agreed. The old burnished brown was a much better choice, especially for dressier shoes, which are pretty much all I buy AE for.

                    With the recent Discover America sale, I decided to take chance on a pair of seconds from the Shoebank. For me, living in the Great White North it really is chance because of the shipping, duties, etc. Not to mention the restocking fees. My boots arrived on Friday and I thought I'd share some images of what makes them seconds. All in all, while the quality may have declined I am happy with my purchase since they are seconds. But had these passed off as first, I'd likely be a little disappointed. Images to follow in a second post as writing this much via taptalk would have been a pain.

                      So there is a slight crease in the leather on one boot.



                      And some spidering on both sides of the other boot.

                        I'd be happy with those as seconds. I think that's about what to expect.

                          And the story continues . . .

                          Today one of my work colleagues received a pair of AE Fifth Avenue shoes after I recommended he try them and hearing another co-working extoll their virtues.

                          And guess what? One of the shoes had two small gouges in the leather on the back of the shoe. These were not seconds. They were sold as first quality.

                          Too bad--they looked really good in the dark chilli color.

                          But damn--I guess getting an AE shoe that doesn't have visible damage is the exception rather than rule now.

                            I have but one small complaint, and that is that I've had a lot of trouble finding replacement laces for my daltons.

                            they don't have them on the site, and they don't stock them to sell either. they reccomended i look on some webpage that is a fucking super mess to look for new ones. LOL

                              Yeah [MENTION=17354]mebejoseph[/MENTION] I am happy with my shoes/boots. For seconds I figure they're pretty good and will do just fine.

                              I've laced them up with bar lacing though as something different/new. Man what a pain to pull those boots tight.

                                It's not these? https://www.allenedmonds.com/shoe-ca...F817_color=818

                                Or these? https://www.allenedmonds.com/outlet/...F980_color=981

                                I bought a pair of both for my Long Branch boots and they're pretty nice.
