Since this is an appreciation thread, I hope Mr. Grangaard reads this because I would like to give a shoutout to the Atlanta store on Dunwoody, and Andrew and Soleil in particular. A company is only as good as its people, and these two were exceptional- knowledgeable (Andrew at least reads this thread and quoted from it to me! lol), absolutely professional, and helpful in the extreme. When I asked about a shoe that wasn't in stock, Andrew called around other cities (and is on a first name basis with associates across the country having been sent to several locations for training) and located two pair to Fedex in so I could look at them before I left town.
This is the first AE store I have visited, and I couldn't have been more impressed. I was traveling with my company Chairman who lives and shops in Dubai, he had to buy a pair while we were there as well- claims he tears up shoes very quickly, I dared him to destroy AE's the same as the designer shoes he favors (was wearing a pair of Louis Vittons when we went in, for instance).
My compliments- now I just have to decide whether to go back tonight and buy those damn Navy Neumoks before I leave again for the Dark Continent!! Aargghhh... hey, what's an overweight penalty here and there right??
EDIT: Soleil, if Andrew shows you this, you should post up some of your footwear pictures with the pants you're wearing showing- several have asked about shoes for women on this thread and I think quite a few wives/girlfriends might be happy to see what you can do with these!!
For instance, today she was rocking the Fifth Avenue boots in black with a dark skinny jean turned up to show them off... very nice! Give her some encouragement guys!!
