    I'm sure others were able to find better deals, but I picked a couple up at the AE retail store when they were having a 15% off sale, and the rest I found off of eBay for 20% off + used eBay bucks as well.

    So for future sales, does AE do an email blast to their subscriber list?

    I was a few days late to this one and missed out on a few things I really wanted so I would like to be prepared for next time!

    Finally managed to make an order with the 2/250. I personally prefer getting the lists of shoes vs. the website (I was only ever able to use it in the early morning, presumably because the server is getting overworked). Interestingly, a bunch of shoes listed as 'closeout' ~1 month ago when the first news of the sale leaked out are no longer 'closeout' models, which is a bummer.

    Anyhow, managed to snag an Elgin and a Burgandy Clifton in 13E. I was really hoping for a brown distressed McTavish to wear as a casual shoe, but unfortunately the pair they had was apparently not worth it (always worthwhile to ask them to lay eyes on the product, especially those of us up in Canada as the shipping is expensive!). I already have a walnut Sanford, which is pretty similar to the Elgin, but at that price I couldn't pass it up.

    Some pics I grabbed from the internet:

    Hope everyone else gets what they wanted from the 2/250!

    For those of you with narrow feet, do you use small shoe trees to fill your shoes? I had a collection of large JAB/AE shoe trees that were too big and were too wide to fit in the toe box. So I replaced them all with mediums. These are still too big. Wondering if I should go with the smalls or if I should break out a sander to sand down the sides...any ideas?

    Is anyone interested in buying a brand new pair of these (Brown Shell Dundees) in size 9D for $500? I had a pair custom made a while back and they have been sitting in my closet since. They are Flawless, first-quality shoes. Pics are available, but I am posting here hoping to avoid the classifieds section.

    The pic isn't mine, I found it on the web. That being said, I will be putting a Topy on mine as I do with all my shoes. I do a ton of walking on concrete, and I also work in a hospital where leather soled shoes are not the greatest idea.

    As an aside, I wore today with my BOURBON MANISTEE...
    [​IMG]
    Was this sacrilege? It looked great (to me, at least).
    Belt was barely seen, but it still looks passable. Thoughts?

    I saw this question yesterday, about how the manistee can be used; this will make three shoes the bourbon works with - six shoes work with walnut version.

    Behold the wonderfulness that is Allen Edmonds MTO:

    [​IMG]

    Seven of the nine are from the current MTO program. From left to right:

    1. Brown Chromexcel Bayfield. I had a pair in 12E, but with the Poron insole, it was way too tight. Turns out I needed a 12.5 EEE, but it was not a standard size. These are stock.
    2. Black sharkskin Eagle County with a v-tread tap sole. Pretty straightforward, and one of the last Eagle County pairs at the $197 sale price.
    3. Black sharkskin Clifton. One of the two that did not come from the current MTO program. Sherman Brothers helped me get these before Allen Edmonds had an MTO option for the SF consumer.
    4. Chili/brown sharkskin Shelton. These were made from the only brown and chili sharkskin they had. There is no more.
    5. Walnut shell cordovan Mac Neil with natural welt and edge dressing. These are the pair that started the current craze.
    6. Walnut shell cordovan/cappuccino shell cordovan Shelton. Two rare colors of shell in one.
    7. Cappuccino shell McAllister. I didn't get these when they were webgems. Same exact makeup.
    8. Burgundy shell Lexington with natural welt and edge dressing and Independence insole.
    9. Black calf Wendell. The other that did not come through the current MTO program. Retired style at the time, but Paul himself helped me get them made.

    My overall experience with the MTO program has been amazing. First Deborah and then Allison - their customer service has been top-notch and they have been patient and helpful every step of the way. I am thoroughly pleased with all of the shoes.

    In addition to these, I also had three Neumoks made during the original custom Neumok run:

    Additionally, I have some older MTOs I bought off eBay. They are the two on the left, made of real American Gator:
