All joking aside, along with the sale, Nordstrom is giving free shipping to Canada right now on orders over $150. I do think that is worth mentioning. It's approximately another $30-35 in savings.

Just found this on slickdeals. $179 for Strands.

My coffee cup is an 11 oz.custom crested Military Art ceramic mug from the USS America that is 24 years old. 5 years ago it cracked into about 6 large pieces so I glued it together and have been using it every day since. Monday morning went through the garage to work with the dog at 5 AM and felt something strange, looked down and the cup was falling apart in what seemed to be slow motion from my hand with just the handle staying behind. It hit the cement floor and shattered into hundreds of pieces soaking me from my knees to my brown shell Patriots. Last night I finally got some time to clean them, spent about 15 minutes with Reno, damp rag, brush and microfiber buffing cloth. Just another reason to love shell. And what is left of my coffee cup:

 

Sorry about your coffee cup - but the Patriots look very nice!

In honor here is a picture of my freshly shined original Mora's

So...should I return my unworn strands to nordstroms and buy them from amazon? It would save me about $50-$60. Hmmm...very tempting.

Too bad there aren't any available from Amazon in my size... though even if there was, it's worth noting us Canadians get dinged with a $35 shipping fee (plus potential taxes/duty). Great deal for those who can take advantage of it, thanks for sharing.

If Amazon has your size on sale then yes. I looked and no size I could fit into is going at that price.

That's $50-60 towards another pair of shoes!

Doc - you requested some pics of me wearing my Ashbury's with jeans.  Here you go.  If it helps at all, I wear an 11E on all AE lasts.  As well, I have not worn these boots for more than five minutes so I don't know how much they will crease (I'm waiting until fall to really start wearing them).  Also, I included a pick of my snuff suede Amoks simply because they rock:

Gentlemen, I'm interested in a pair of walnut (tan) RL Sandersons. In my searching online I can't seem to find a retailer that sells them except for RL.com. Is this a discontinued style? I'd like to try them on before ordering. I think they are on the 222 last. Can anyone confirm? If I'm a 7.5E on the 5 last, what size generally do people think I'd be in the 2? From reading this forum I understand that the 2 can be difficult so that's why I'd like to try on some before ordering. RL's site only seems to list D widths.

 

Are they worth the extra money? The AE Winter Park in the orthotic line look similar but more casual. What are the main differences? The Players also seem similar albeit a slightly different design.

 

I'm interested in a walnut/tan wingtip with open lacing. I think I'm using the correct term. I have a pair of McAllister with closed lacing. Again, not sure if i'm using the right term. The other option is the Larchmont but I don't like the squared toe. The MacNeil only seems to come in grain and I'm looking for something more formal to wear with suits.

 

Thanks in advance.

You're a gentleman and a scholar. Thanks.

Anyone have the old Fairhaven's? A wingtip Oxford like the McAllister but - I think - on the old #4 last. How is different than the Mac on the #5?

Call one of the Shoe Department MANAGERS (not a regular sales associate) - and ask them to price match a refund for the difference.  All they need is the web page to show the deal.

 

Be prepared, however, that the deal may not be honored because it requires an Amazon Email Subscription for the full savings.  It may not affect the store you bought them from, because you can also offer to sign up for their email subscription.

 

I purchased the LONG BRANCH boots from the same store, and then AE had an exclusive sale a few weeks later with over $100 savings.  The store manager refunded the difference as a price match

 

Another tip is . . . the store offers a free no-credit-check debit card in their name that taps your checking account.  The card upgrades you as a regular customer to a Rewards Customer - which approximately DOUBLES the amount days you can purchase on selected sales!

 

If you have problems getting a price match, let me know.  

 

All my best,


David

Kinda funny you counted this up, made me chuckle

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.

Got me confused, did the SA say what the differences will be on the mora 2.0's? Wondering if I've made a mistake in buying 2 pairs of neumora's
