More information here. tl;dr - yes.

Which of the four locations in NYC is recommended? I've been to the 44th street store, but it was fairly small.

Brilliant link! thank you.

 

No the question- Bourbon or walnut? Strands or McAllisters?

That's a terrible choice to make. The correct answer is all of them! 

 

Fill the gap in your shoe collection keeping in mind the bourbon is more versatile. What do you currently have?

I measured a 9.5E on the interactive measurement guide on AE's official website. May I know how do I size for a park/fifth avenue? Do I go TTS?

I like the Rockefeller store on 6th ave.

Brown Glasgow loafers

Chili Regent Street

Tan Suede Neumoks

Blue Neumoks

Brown/Brown Grain Hamptons

Black Cole Haan Captoe

Burgundy Patriots (likely being returned)

 

I think I need another captoe which is why I am leaning towards the strand; just worried bourbon may be too dark(like brown) and that is why I like the walnut.

 

Thoughts anyone?

None, unless they have the style you want along with several sizes.

 

I have seen more and more posts lately of folks buying styles and sizes unseen - without knowing what their professional fit is for a particular style - which spells out the "last" plus the length and width.

 

You might also call the Nordstrom's Department store across the river in NJ and speak personally only to the department manager.  He will offer to bring in styles and sizes from other stores and AE so that you can try them on.

 

All my best,

 

David

Rockefeller is much larger and has a great SA named Liz. I was just in the 44th street location and yes it is small, but the customer service is just as good.

Any recommendations?

 

Speak to a Manager at a full size AE store or at a Nordstrom Shoe Department Store and insist on a professional fit and sizing for the various styles and lasts that AE offers.  Take in your Christmas list of potential future purchases too.

 

AE website has a printable shoe size chart, and the AE and Nordstrom Managers can speak with you on the phone to help determine the best size and last if you choose only to order by mail.

 

Also, both stores offer the free return shipping to experiment with sizing.

 

And, if a store does not have the style and size to try on - ask the Manager to bring it in for you in advance of your visit.  If you cannot get a manager to do that - then private message me for a manager who will.

Thanks for the replies. The reason I'm not to keen on the 44th street location is because I have a pretty small foot, and still not sure about my sizing, so I'd like to go to a store with more stock.

Like most folks visiting the shoe department, you got nabbed by a sales associate and not the manager.  Had you called the store before visiting and spoke only to the manager, he/she would have said "If I don't have the size/style, then I will order them in from another store or AE so you can try them on."

That may have worked in the past, but the current sale of multiple styles, sizes, and colors is not fully available on their website.  But a personal email or phone call to a department manager will assure you of a full selection of everything being promoted.

LOL.

 

By the way, I believe you mentioned a few months ago your desire to get together in Montana on a visit with me.  Perhaps I can show you the golf course in Glacier National Park where Jimmy Hoffa is buried!

Absolutely!  I even enjoy posting to my other alternative names, such as New Shoes1!  But Spokane?  Maybe once a year to try on different styles and fits . . . but once I know my size, little need to venture to the big city, except to pay my respects to those who are stuck there.  :) 

 

As for moving to Montana . . . right on.  More cattle in this state than people, the the Big Western Sky this month does help with all of the disorders of life.

 

Your cousin,
