post #6766 of 53389

Is the Nordstrom anniversary sale online?  Would I need to worry about stock for any of the Allen Edmonds shoes?

The 10D feels tight enough that I want to take my shoes off so I think it's definitely not a good size for me.
Quick question for y'all. when you measure on the brannock if your toe is right on the line of one size, for example, I measure exactly 10.5D sock-less, would you take a 10.5D or 11D?

 

Have you tried 11C?   You may already know this, but going up 1/2 size involves going up in both length and width.   So going from a 10.5D to 11D will be an increase of 1/2 in length and 1/2 in width.  If you want to keep the same width, you can try going from 10.5D to 11.C 

 

Plus, did you get:

 

  • measured while standing up
  • heel to toe measurement
  • heel to ball measurement
  • both foot measured

 

There is also a limitation on the brannock device.   It only measures 2 dimensions while your foot is a 3 dimensional object.  Even assuming the length and width of all shoes conform exactly to brannock measurements, you are at the mercy of the shoe last for that third axis.

Also think about adding brown or burgundy loafers by next spring.

 

Yeah, I'll most likely be one of those who wear suits just sometimes...if even that much. Do you have any suggestions for a black/burgundy/brown pair? I considered getting a burgundy and brown pair but none of the AEs during the Anniversary Sale is those colors besides the Parkways...which I can't find any info on. I figured a pair of LaSalle in Chili would be good enough in terms of the burgundy colorway. I haven't seen in it person so I'm not sure if that's entirely correct.

 

And are loafers commonly worn by public accounts? I recently purchased a pair of black Bruno Magli (they were comfy!) loafers hoping it's something that wouldn't be deemed too casual.

I see that there are "Parkways" available in brown for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but I can't find any information on this shoe. Does anyone know anything about them? Otherwise, you could might be able to get 5th Aves in brown for a good price from user allaboutshoes

 

Thanks for the suggestion regarding the brown 5th Aves!

black Park Ave for those times you need some more formality. I like both the Mcallister /cambridge and MacNeil for burgundy wingtips.

Loafers are worn all the time in the business world, with suits even. I would not recommend that though.

Purchased black & white Broadstreets and brown& blue Finches yesterday.  Will post pics when the Broadstreets get here.

Found these today on the website.  I just ordered them in black & white.  Am tempted by the brown & walnut.  What do you think?allenedmonds_shoes_broadstreet_black-brown_l.jpgallenedmonds_shoes_broadstreet_black-burgundy_l.jpgallenedmonds_shoes_broadstreet_brown-walnut_l.jpg

Took delivery of my Shell Cordovan AE Cambridge this week. A 6 week wait, but well worth it. These babies are competing for my favorite AEs with my Strands.

Not that I know of, but the last salesman I talked to said they do have a decent sale more towards the end of summer... fingers crossed for the Olive Neumoks... it was a toss up between those and the blue, and the blue won

 

 

 

On a side note, anyone have a clue how/where/if possible it would be to pick up a pair of Evanstons.  They have been discontinued for a couple years, now, but I fell in love with them the second I saw a picture of them, and ended up "settling" for the walnut Strands instead ha

I like them all but I especially like the brown and walnut too, more contrast.  I thought they looked better with khaki pants and blue jeans than the others.  Tempting.

Great pick-up. My last pair of AE

Those Cambridge's are absolutely beautiful.  I want a pair one day.  I would just sit at desk all day looking at them and not get anything done.  lurker[1].gif
