Were they discounted in the store? There are over a dozen models (Bourbon only) on clearance on the website, with some size limitations.I stopped by my local Allen Edmonds store today and learned that apparently the company is getting rid of the shoe color Bourbon.
Anyone have any info on this?
Honestly, what more does anyone need? Just use a different coloured polish and do the work yourself!We've decided to narrow our calfskin color range down to 5 for 2016 -- black, brown burnished, chili, oxblood and walnut.
Funny you mention the Bourbon Moras as I bought a pair of them today.Hey Paul, I've heard that the bourbon was a difficult color to apply (propensity for "tiger-striping")- is this correct, and is this part of the reason behind the discontinuation?
i like my bourbon Mora's, but oxblood is a color I get far more use out of, so not a huge loss for me. Good to see you back, good luck in 2016!
Seaons Greetings AAAC Friends --
The OP is correct. We are taking a break from bourbon for a while and all of our bourbon shoes are on Clearance -- a fabulous opportunity for those who like the nuance of the bourbon look.
We've decided to narrow our calfskin color range down to 5 for 2016 -- black, brown burnished, chili, oxblood and walnut. We see our newly updated versions of both chili and oxblood as trending very positively these days and want to give them more focus this coming year. We're also working in production to be more consistent in our finishing and to make superior finishing more of a strength of AE. Reducing the colorwheel to 5 (4 browns) helps us in that pursuit as well.
So, if you like the bourbon look, it's "last call". Bottoms up.
Thanks for your support in 2015 and Happy New Year, everyone!
