Wow! I honestly didn't even know I had that many posts in this thread. Thanks for the kind words.
Good news is coming to Canada next year when Nordstroms will be opening the first of five (5) Canadian stores, starting in the Fall. Free shipping both ways, plus they can order anything a local store does not have in stock. Perhaps AE will follow suit and open their own Canadian store or outlet.
In the meantime, the Canadian Dollar has weakened against the US Dollar a bit, and the forecast may or may not be worse for use of Canadian dollars. I recall when my US dollar of $1.00 got $1.25 in Canadian goods. This may be a part of raising some costs.
If AE is charging $45, you may want to go with a US based Nordstroms store which will charge you $35 to ship directly to you with the guarantees of returns.
There is also a fabulous sale coming up in a few weeks with top styles at 35% off regular retail at one of the AE major retailers. That would certainly pay for the extra shipping.
My best to you,
Question was asked about the Dalton for dress or casual.
Here are some sample photos:

Shipping to Canada is actually coming up at $10 for a pair of Strands and $15 for the faster shipping method. When the 35% hits that will be a really good deal for us Canadians. Thank you very much.
I am a bit newer to this thread. Do you work for Nordstrom? You seem to push them pretty hard as well as have some inside info. Just curious. Thanks.
Yes, the shoes in your link are McAllisters, but Polojock is correct about the gentleman's photos being of Player's shoes.
Here are my new Walnut Shell Dundee's.... Color is actually more even between the 2 shoes than the photos suggest.... i really like the appearance of the burnishing on the toes....
Thanks to Paul for the MTO program and a special thank you to Allison at AE for fantastic during the process.
In term of shipping to Canada, my experience is: $45 from AE website; $25 from the Shoebank.
David, you've been talking this sale up for days now; not only here but on the other thread you started which has since been deleted.
For everyone's sake, can you please either provide the details or refrain from mentioning it again until it's current? Thanks
These look great!! Congrats!!
Thank you. My very first order was from the Shoebank and $25. My subsequent orders were through Jeffersonville and $45. I thought the price just went up. Good info for all up north then.
Those walnut shell Dundee's are beautiful.
Yeah those are not the shoes in Numberpro's picture.
These are his shoes:
He's likely just talking about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale they have every summer. July 19-Aug 4 this year.
