The Look for Less: Jack Rogers

I posted about this deal on Tumblr a few days ago, but I thought I'd share it with the blogosphere too!

Amazon sells Jack Rogers HERE for a pretty good deal depending on the color and size you want (I have my eye on the above pair and a fuschia pair myself so don't steal my 9.5's!) and I often get emails and comments wondering where people can get Jack Rogers on a budget or cheaper than retail. 

There are a few comments about the quality of the Jacks. While I can't directly vouch for the shoes since I haven't ordered them, a few people have ordered them after seeing the Tumblr post and said they are legitimate. 

Also to note, Jack Rogers are no longer sold in the light boxes anymore, they're sold in a vibrant blue and green box that is very Palm Beach 1950's-esque. They also have a new stamp on the sole. 

The old logo used to look like this:
The new logo, however, looks more like this:
You can see it very slightly in this image from their website:


There are also warnings on the Amazon review area that the shoes have pen writing on them. If you Jack Rogers are real they SHOULD have a pen number on them. If you wear a half size like I do, the sole should read "9-", the dash indicating a half size, otherwise for whole sizes it will just have the number like "9" or "10".

Like I said, I'm not sure that these Jack Rogers are 100% real, but I have a very good feeling that they are the real thing. I also got a tweet back about them and the customer said she was satisfied and excited with her new purchase!

Have you ordered Jacks from Amazon? Were you happy with their quality? Did they seem legit?

Let me know!! Happy shopping!

Can you do a post about these when you get yours in the mail? I'm very curious about the authenticity!

I've always purchased my JRs in store, but a cheaper option would allow me to expand my collection ;) I can't wait to hear more! Enjoy your weekend! xoxo {av}

P.S. I'm hosting a little Lilly Pulitzer giveaway--you're going to love it :)

I actually ordered a pair of JRs from Amazon last week. They should be here sometime in the next few days. I'll make sure to give them a good lookover!

I've ordered Jacks from Amazon before and they were just fine!
A few months ago, someone posted on the Pink Closet facebook page (sister site to Re-Lilly, check them out!) about a store in Arkansas that had Jack's like half price! I was so happy to get 2 pairs for the price of 1!

I just got my jacks today from,Amazon. They do have the same.pen markings on them as my other pair, but the logo is different from either of the above, and on the inside they are stamped made in Brazil, which my other pair of Jacks does.not say, so I think they might be knockoffs, but they are the best pair i have ever seen!
