Jay Butler Sale Starts Today

From April 14 – 18 Jay Butler is offering 15% off site wide. The code to use is TaxDay23 and you want to go here to use it.

I have, for two years now, worn these Jay Butler loafers at minimum two days a week, without socks. They have never been repaired, they have in fact never seen a shine.

As I have said before, I was worried about the soles because they are a thinner profile. They truly look like I had the shoes a month. And like Indiana Jones says, “It’s not the years, honey, it’s the mileage.”

Now that you have been treated to my horror show photography, try this:

Another reason to go to the site, aside from their amazing shoes.

So as I have shared, I have spend the better part of every day since September in a hospital with a family member as we walked through cancer. (See what I did there – “walked through” cancer? – btw cancer is in rear view now so no, it is not too early…)

The paperwork from that process is voluminous (Dean, did I get that right?). I mean inches thick. And my every day bag was already full. So I used this bag for all the paperwork, every day.

Today through the 18th, this bag is 15% off. You can see the bag here.

A bit about the Jay Butler All Business Bag, which you can check out here. Like the shoes, you cannot wear it out. If you are the type of person who carries a laptop or tablet and a journal and, I dunno, was gonna say newspaper but that’s over, and a few other things, this is a great professional bag. It is a thinner profile, comes with a VERY comfortable shoulder strap, and it, ahem, goes great with the shoes.

AND it has great mojo. #CancerInTheRearView

Check out their sitewide sale. TaxDay23 is the code, and what you buy you will have for a very, very long time.

  1. A little cream shoe polish goes a long way to increase the longevity of the leather uppers!

  2. First and foremost, I am so glad to hear that cancer is now in the rear view. I know what a terrible slog it is, and I hope you can all celebrate together if you haven’t already been doing so.
    Second, I finally ordered a pair of Jay Butlers and am eagerly awaiting their arrival. They seem like they’ll be perfect for the warmer seasons, and it’ll be nice to give my Weejuns a break. And
    Third, maybe it’s time to polish your loafers. They’ll thank you for it. And they’ll be more photogenic, to boot! (To shoe?)

    I have liked these shoes from the get-go, and I am glad to see they are making size 14 and 15 in wide widths. Unfortunately, I wear a 14 B, which is kinda freakish. I hope to see that the tan Cromwells are offered in my size some day, but I will not hold my breath. Making shoes for my stupid feet is unprofitable for all but the largest manufacturers.

      Back in the heyday, you could walk into a Florsheim store, (and probably others, Bostonian/Hanover, Johnston & Murphy, et al.), and order what you need. A few weeks later your phone would ring. “Mr. Whiskeydent, your shoes are here.”

      Maybe even take a plaster cast of your foot/feet, and make a custom last for you.

        I can walk into the Allen Edmonds store four blocks from home and sometimes they have my size in one of the two lasts that work. If they don’t, I can order a pair with no shipping charge and they will show up at my door a week or so later.

        They’re not Alden-level or even as good as they once were. However, they’re good enough.

        Oddly enough, I once had lasts made for custom cowboy boots. The boots served me well for 30 years and I still miss them.

    Trees daily. Brush after wearing. Saddle soap and warm water annually. Lexol annually.
