    I don't think mentioning the coupon is enough, I think there might be a code attached to the coupon. Kristle from J'Ville should be able to answer those specific questions. She's the manager and great to deal with.

    Great picture, I really like all three. That Carmina is extremely striking though.

    Yes it is the same. They are pulling the inventory company wife. If you want an inventory list from Jeffersonville, which would be the exact same as shoebank, just email [email protected] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk 2

    2nds can also be found at Nordstrom's. :)

    Seriously though, just email them and they'll send you a list. Jeffersonville shop has always been the quickest to reply.

    Fellow AE gents, can I have your opinion on some sizing issues please?

    Using the AE measurement guide, i measure as a 7.5D. But almost extending outside the D width line.

    My Clifton (8D) on the 8-last is definitely too long and i could go down to 7.5D. The 8 last has a generous volume.

    My Franciscan (7.5D) on the 3-333 last feels perfect, length-wise, but there is slight pressure on my width and i think 7.5E would have fit me better.

    With all that in mind, for the 5 last, i'm thinking of getting a 7.5E. Quite concerned that 7.5D would be to narrow.

    Your thoughts?

    Noinimod, I am in the same exact boat as you, sizing and all. Get the 7.5 E.

    I have no axe to grind with Nordstrom. I spent a lot of money at Nordstrom and racked up $20 Nordie notes every month for many years. There was no better way to spend a weekday than shopping at Nordstrom followed by Chinese Chicken Salad at the Nordie Cafe and Nordstrom coffee.

    At the same time if you can't see the business plan at Nordstrom has changed then you're blind or delusional. They channged from a store that focused on service to a store that is now focused on foot trafic. Nordstrom went the way of Marshall Fields just before they changed to Macy's.

    I like Allen Edmonds and so far they have offered great service I recieved at Nordstrom in the past.

    I also like Bruno Magli, Santoni and Gucci. I am not going to kiss any brands rear but I will speak the truth about my experiences.

    Yes, there was a time when Nordstrom would bend over backwards to make a cutomer happy. Those days are gone. Sales associates that have been there many years may try to keep the old way going but the new hires are not service focused and managers don't help sales associates.

    As for Nordstrom selling seconds I find it interesting you quote CEO's and dismiss what people who PURCHASED the shoes say. Maybe they're not seconds but they should have been. Quality control was low duing the sale and many shoes were sold at Nordstom that were flawed. Like I said, a manager at AE said they had many problems during the sale. But they did stand behind their shoes. I'll post pictures of all my AE shoes when I pick the last ones up.

    Based on what you have here, I think 7.5E is the way to go. The 5 last is narrow. The 3 last is noticeably wider, so if your Franciscans are a bit tight, definitely size up width wise for anything on the 5.
