Allen Edmonds Appreciation Thread - reviews, pictures, sizing, etc... - Page 3085post #46261 of 707377/4/14 at 4:14pmpost #46262 of 707377/4/14 at 4:16pmpost #46263 of 707377/4/14 at 4:17pmIt was mentioned in this thread that the Strand would be going on sale for Nordstrom's anniversary sale coming up in a few weeks. Is this guaranteed to be the case? And approximately what price could we expect them to be discounted? Thanks.
IGpost #46264 of 707377/4/14 at 4:34pmQuote:Last year the walnut Strand and the black Park Avenue were both $229. They were both $219 the year before. Regular AE shoe prices went up to $365, so sale prices may go up another $10 or more this year at Nordstrom.
Walnut Manistee and black Wide Basic Dress Belt will probably go on sale again to pair with them too. I believe the walnut Manistee was around $80 last year. The Manistee has also gone up in price since then (to $120). Wide Basic was somewhere between $10-20 cheaper than that.

- If you know your size on the 5 last and have a Discover card, use ShopDiscover and order online to get 5% (used to be 10%) cash back from Nordstrom.com purchases. (Login to Discover account online, link to Nordstrom.com from there, then place online order as usual.)
- If you don't have a Discover card, just have your local AE store price match the Nordstrom sale prices. I think it's nice to show support to AE when we can.
I love my Mac's/Jeffersons/Cambrides for suits. I have them in dark brown and burg shell. At least on this side of the Atlantic, dark colored wingtips have been a business suit staple for decades.post #46266 of 707377/4/14 at 5:46pmQuote:Originally Posted by MoNum
I have the Park Avenue and Strand both in bourbon and love them.
I wear navy and grey suits mainly. Thinking of getting a dark brown shoe but uncertain of a Brown strand vs Fifth Ave vs McAllister vs Park Ave.
I'm afraid the brown and bourbon are too similar for two strands or Park Aves.
I wonder if the McAllister is too casual for suits?
Not a huge fan of black shoes
+1 the balmoral wingtip (Mcallister) or the balmoral punch capote (strand) are both great shoes, very appropriate for suits. Maybe not for an evening affair, but for business wear they work well. Personally I would go burgundy Cambridge and dark brown shell strand, but the calf equivalents are good proxies. The 5th ave is also a great shoe, less adorned than the strand but also slightly more formal due to that.post #46267 of 707377/4/14 at 5:53pmQuote:
I never really considered looking for deals like that in Nordstrom Rack locations in the States. Is there some good stuff in those stores? Or did you order online?post #46268 of 707377/4/14 at 6:36pmQuote:
I'll put it this way... in a dimly lit room, you definitely know that bourbon is a shade of brown. But with dark brown, you might think it's black.post #46269 of 707377/4/14 at 6:41pmpost #46270 of 707377/4/14 at 7:12pmpost #46271 of 707377/4/14 at 7:37pmQuote:Originally Posted by halfnhalfnhalf
I think AE's briefcases are fine (especially when they're discounted, which they are pretty frequently), but if you haven't already done so you should check out other American-made brands. A few that come to mind are Ghurka, Saddleback, Billykirk, and J.W. Hulme. (AE also sells Hulme's products, although I'm not sure why you would buy them from AE instead of directly from Hulme.) I believe there are multiple SF threads on these brands and others.
Thank you both for your input. I decided to forget about AE briefcases after taking a look into these suggestions. I really like the Thin Briefcase from Saddleback in Chestnut (http://www.saddlebackleather.com/briefcasethin), but I'm not too sure how well it would go with my build. I'm a slim guy, 5'9" around 140 lbs, but I'd need the large size in order to carry my laptop. Any idea if this would be too big for a guy of my size? Also, would this be an appropriate briefcase to pair daily with a suit?post #46272 of 707377/4/14 at 8:20pmpost #46273 of 707377/4/14 at 8:53pmQuote:Warning: Spoiler!
