First snow in Cincinnati (that's worth commenting on)! Yay!Peacoat kept me warm on the commute, then put on the DB blazer once I arrived at work. [[SPOILER]]
Ok so I was in the store just now. My SA reminded me that the corporate 30% sale is Thursday. He then proceeded to tell me about the thanksgiving/Black Friday sale. Certain categories will be 30% off—outerwear and sweaters is what he specifically mentioned, and that will include cashmere; he also said it'll almost certainly exclude cordovan, EG, other top dollar items—and then on Black Friday there will be an additional 20% off everything, too.

I'm an 11D US (10D UK) straight across the board in almost every shoe I've ever tried on, even the Indy boots I sold to buy these, which recommended a half size down.Mmm, those do look similar, nail pattern and everything. I'll post photos of the inside lettering tonight.
I believe C&J.Nail pattern
Who'd have thought a mid-season sale like the Veterans would yield such amazing deals on shoes? I cannot believe the deal I got on these C&J wingtip boots! When they dropped to $299 last week, I called my SA at my store and he ordered a pair into the store for me, and he assured me they'd honor the price in case they went back up. Went to go get them last night, and when they rang them up, I discovered they'd dropped to $179. Unbelievable. I never would've guessed they'd...
