So I was reading last Thursday's Men's sales handful and read that the AE Higgins Mill in tumbled leather 1st qualitywere on sale on the AE site with an extra 20% on top of that. Final price $159

So I ordered a pair and they had a few minor defects. Some uneven dye, a few scratches.

Then I noticed the boots came in a brown box with no shoe bag.

I had thought the 1st quality came in a black box with a shoe bag and the 2nd quality came in a brown box without.

Am I mistaken about the box? I'm just wondering if they sent me 2nds that were advertised as 1sts.
