    I read that SF post on captoes as well and I think this is a valid point. I also like the idea of wholecuts though, so I thought all the points you made about the last and different color, along with the detail on the vamp, might make these wear better than other wholecuts. They'd probably be an absolute paid to keep shined with the color difference though.

    Dang so tempted. Might sleep on it this weekend. I just got a new job with an increased salary, so these may be my celebratory shoes.

    It was just brought to my attention (thanks fey!) that shell cordovan Kenwoods (firsts retail for $595) are part of the AE 2 for $250 sale on discontinued seconds. I'm sure sizing is super limited but that's a steal if they have your size!

    A few Mark McNairy shoes, I think these are US sizes but I'd verify before purchasing.

    Country Brogue Boot, was $408 now $245, size 9.5:

    Country Brogue, was $398 now $160, size 12:

    Two Tone Brogue, was $340 now $136, size 8 & 8.5 (This specifically specifies US sizing):

    I'd buy the first two instantly if they were my size. Not sure if I could pull off the third one or not, but if you can then knock yourself out!

    I really like this color:

    Ovadia & Sons snuff suede chukka on a crepe sole, was $595 now $365, US sizes 10 & 10.5, "hand made in England"
    http://www.ovadiaandsons.com/shop/pr...ukka-Boot.html
    I wonder who makes this? It's a pretty good deal if it's made by one of the better Northampton companies.

    Apparently Alfred Sargent makes the O&S shoes. That's a decent deal for Sargents. The calf version on a rubber sole is £275.00 Ex VAT ($410ish + shipping) from Shoehealer:

    I just grabbed a pair of these Rancourts from the Jack Spade surplus sale for $129 (was $250). I'll have to see exactly what the real life color is to know how to wear 'em, but suede Rancourt boat shoes for $129 was too good to pass up.

    The J.Crew Wallace & Barnes angler jacket http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/W...7387/97387.jsp just got its price dropped to $149.99 so with the additional 30% off it would be $104.99 which is way down from the original retail price of $328. All sizes are still available too.
