Over the weekend purchased my first pair of AE's at Nordstrom--"McAllister"(BLK). Also ordered the matching AE Manistee belt (to be shipped).
Have to say that I like them MUCH better then the Salvatore Ferragamos that I had recently purchased. In fact I like the AE's so much that I went back to Neiman Marcus and returned the SF's (which were priced $115 higher!).
Prepare for the addiction to start.
