• End of season sales, which are at the end of summer and winter months, are when retailers get rid of their unsold stock. During these sales, I try to take advantage by investing in quality/key staples like shoes and suits. I’ve saved hundreds of dollars and up to 30 to 80 percent off retail prices.

Current sales:

Barneys: 70% off plus extra 20% off select items.
East Dane: 70% off select items
SSENSE: 70% off
Nordstrom: 50 % off

Goodyear welted shoes are stitched to a welt, that is attached to the shoe so it can be resoled when needed and extends the life of your shoe.  As an example,  I picked up this pair of Church’s  3 years ago. I was lucky to find these lace up brogue shoes that originally retailed for 600 dollars, for under 300
