Just returned from the AE store. Returned by Black Friday Neumoras which looked awful on my wide feet. Picked up the Suede Patriots for $245, but as they didn't have my size at the store or in WI, they are being custom made for me. So won't have them until January. Almost picked up the Rothsay as well, but didn't realize only the black are on sale for $195, not the cognac.
Perhaps most importantly the manager, who now knows me, said I could bring in my first ever pair of AEs which are not the right size (11.5 d, bought at another store where the SA never measured me) and we would "see what we could do." If he lets me exchange them for a pair of 9EEEs I will be thrilled.
Would this be the Reston store, or is there a new manager at the Connecticut Ave store?
