I created an “Imperfect” section at the American Duchess shop, where you can find Devonshires, Georgianas, and Pemberlies for 50% off. With each shipment we always get a few pairs that don’t meet my strict quality requirements. The defects on these “imperfects” include pebbled, indented, wrinkled, or scraped leather, small marks, or dirt smudges. They are cosmetic only.
If small flaws don’t bother you, you can have a pair of my 18th century shoes for half the price you’d pay regularly. Should you like me to personally inspect a pair for you, go ahead and e-mail me – [email protected] – with the shoe style you are interested in and the size you need.
The “Imperfect” section will continue to be updated with any slightly flawed shoes we have come in, along with dyed shoes. Check back for steals and deals, but be aware that the stock for Imperfects is always very limited and once they are gone, that’s it.
