    Whether that means a decline in sale frequency, remains to be seen.
    I don't understand this.

    AE was sold to the same corporate interest that moved previously well-loved, high quality shoe lines (J&M, Florsheim, etc. etc.) overseas and started using glued construction and questionable leather. Shortly after that, the massive additions to clearance and shoebank sales started up. The clearance items seem to be fall/winter in nature, lending to the assessment that they may be wanting to reduce inventory to ramp up spring/summer offerings. If that's the case, the frequency/availability of certain product lines being on sale may trend downward--possibly significantly.

    Bit late to this since it happened at midnight today, but Mr. Porter has final markdowns up to 80%. Most of the stuff is probably picked over, but lots of items are coming in and out of stock due to returns from the tiered % off that happened in the beginning of the month. Although, most of Mr Porter is high-end designers, they do have J Crew and others as well.

    Actually, those shoe brands are owned by a different company.

    I haven't watched AE sales patterns, but seasonal clearance sales seems to be the industry norm for obvious reasons, and what I thought AE was doing already.

    Shoebank prices are lower then what I've seen in the recent past. The Dundee boot is $160 and bourbon strand is $160 in my size.

    I'm sure we'll see an announcement on the main dappered page soon, but there is also an extra 20% off on clearance firsts, including Dundee 2.0. I'm very tempted to replace my J. Crew Kenton Suede Bucks with AE Boone for about $120. The Kenton shoes aren't aging gracefully.

    The cordovan belts in the clearance section for $100 are a crazy good deal

    Is the burgundy belt made from Horween no. 8 shell? AE procures them from another company; so, they don't know.

    I guess it's not from Horween then. AE's cordovan shoes are made from Horween shell so I would've assumed that their belts would be as well, but you're right, they don't specify where it's from on the belt description.
