There is also a customer ID number so must be this time they are restricting it.

To Newcomers:

 

Black is very appropriate for business dress at an office.  Black would be included in any long term AE collection.

I chose to go at another store with free shipping at $14.90 with the split toe instead of the solid toe:

 

David:  have you received any compensation, discounts or free services from Nordstrom in exchange for a promise to spam this thread with constant posts telling people to buy things at Nordstrom, instead of Company X?

Yes, David, but it's not the only choice, which was the point of my post.  A point that you seem to have missed in your haste to spam this thread for Nordstrom.

Man, that bourbon wholecut is a beautiful shoe.  I'm not particularly a huge fan of the 333 last, but I'll have to try it on nonetheless when it arrives at my local AE store.

My, my . . . if other members don't want to know where there is a shoe-tree sale in the split-toes version with free shipping . . . then I will be the first to promote all members to SHUT UP.

 

Since the other tree shoe link was posted for approximately $8-9, PLUS SHIPPING, and members have already griped about the total cost, they too have mentioned Nordstrom Rack to buy them for less.  Norsdtrom Online is a bit higher, but it may be well suited when combining with an AE shoe that is discounted up toe $135 OFF the regular AE price.

 

Then again, friend, you always have the forum software option to BLOCK my posts so you don't have to worry about my posting of Nordstrom, AE, Hangerproject, Sid Mashburn, Need Supply, Maxton, and a host of other sites that have fabulous deals for forum members.

 

As always, I wish you the best and a good weekend,


David

I was just wondering, what constitutes ban worthy offenses on SF? I can't seem to find the rules, if there are any.

Nordstrom does not even sell all of the black styles on sale.  They don't even carry the premier Cambridge.

 

Spam?  Hmmm . . . use the block feature, friend.

 

Otherwise, enjoy another duplicate of my earlier post below:

 

CAMBRIDGE - LINK

 

"Some of the best of the best get to walk the hallowed halls of Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and we've honored this historic academic town by giving one of our choicest models its name.

 

"Everything about this shoe is first-class, starting with its shell Cordovan leather exterior. The finest leather available, this material is not only soft and durable, it's certain to only look better with time.

 

"Playing off the richness of the leather, the full brogue style on this six-eyelet balmoral, which includes perfing on the wingtip, upper, eyestay and backstay and a classic medallion on the toe, conveys an air of gravitas in even the most stately of situations.

 

"Elegantly executed on the 5-Last, this shoe's Reddenbach double oak leather sole and a combination dovetail toplift add the final stunning touches to the Cambridge, an Allen Edmonds shoe for those that have already made it to the top of their class or are pushing to graduate to the next level."

 

******************

 

Yes, AE's quoted details above have certainly pushed the professional level up a few notches . . . and others who matter will take notice.

 

David

 

Yes, David, I have seen your prior posts advocating for certain sites.  All of that, however, pales in comparison with the shilling you are currently doing for Nordstrom.  We're talking 10 Nordstrom posts for every 1 advocating for Saphir or Hanger Project.  Your Nordstrom shilling seemed commendable at first when you were telling people to hold off on their purchases until the Anniversary Sale, but the past week or so is clear commercial speech attempting to sell shoes for Nordstrom.  Now you are trying to steer people away from other companies in order to pay more money to Nordstrom for the same product.  You just advocated that someone pay an additional dollar to buy their shoe trees from Nordstrom, instead of JAB.

Let's be fair, David only has 96 posts referencing Nordstrom out of the 324 posts he's made in this thread. That's not quite even 30%! It could be far worse.
post #25660 of 46992

I believe David's intent is honorable. It is highly evident that he has an obsessive personality and when he finds something he likes, he mentions it repeatedly to anyone willing to listen. I have thought about blocking his replies before, due to the fact that the majority of his posts are redundant or copy/paste descriptions from websites, sometimes hasty (as when he called out ColdIron for mistreating his boots), but I do find some of his information useful and therefore live with the redundancy.

 

David has mentioned before that he has been ridiculed in other forums for being a bit overbearing, so he is aware of the fact that his personality can rub some people the wrong way. I, for one, enjoy having a few oddballs around the campfire...though, it would be nice if the Nordstrom Tales were available in Cliff's Notes.

Whether serious or joking Random, you made me chuckle reading this, and I admire the research! Cheers, J

I looked on BB's website and they only provide D widths.

I entirely agree regarding his honorable intentions and that he is trying to help certain folks out. I just wish he could take the criticism and adapt his ways for everyone's (even his own) benefit. Things like using pm's, not posting the same info over and over again within a matter of hours or days, and not constantly quoting random descriptions or pictures or links from AE's or Nordstrom's site would go a long way.

I shared this opinion until recently. I've become skeptical in light of how overt the attempt to sell Nordstrom products has been in recent posts.

That is strange. Every time I have the outlets send me lists of their stock, it always has pairs of the BB version and I wear a EEE. So they clearly make or made them in the past.
