RE: Allen Edmonds Clothing
Most guys...hate to shop - loathe it even. If their wife gets them in there to buy shoes. She can talk him into getting some new clothes I'd guess. I know that the folks that are on here are the 1%ers that care about what they wear. Most guys don't..hell...99% don't. I can't tell you how many guys at my office have been dressed by their wives.
This is a good move by AE - to get guys to buy more in the store.
I know if they keep the clothes made in America - I'll show some interest in them for sure.
In a selfish way, I almost wish they were doing a reverse of J.Crew and having an "In good company" but with clothes in the AE stores.
I don't see this working for AE. Women that buy for guys who hate to shop either pick things up for the guy while she is at Nordstrom, Macy's, or any other department store or drag the guy along to a department store to get shoes, clothes, belt, underwear, cologne (everything he needs) in one stop shopping. They're not going to go to AE for shoes and the few items of clothing in the corner.
