no, only the ones labeled as closeouts on one of the right columns
Go to www.6pm.com for some great sales and sizes.
as far as I know, only the close out models are 2/$250
Only the close outs. And not the 1st quality close outs listed.
You guys did great in getting these Long Branches for $125.00 !
If you requested the list in your size - then the list is what is on sale for the few days offered.
Call in your order, leave a voice mail if busy for a return call - and follow up with an email.
David, this is not correct. Only the closeouts are in for the sale and the inventory lists include more than just the closeouts.
Well that brought me back down to earth. Mostly just loafers in my size, not what I need. Some nice suede wingtips but I can't justify any more suede shoes at this moment. Damn. Was gonna lose my shit if I could get Kenilworths for 125.
Long branches are close outs?
I guess I wouldn't know since non were listed in my size...
How u guys feel of the grey dalton? Versitale?
Ordered the Daltons through Nordstrom, called to price match the boot to the Amazon sale. I was told that they can't do it because they are different colors, burnished walnut vs walnut. Fairly disappointed by that.
I was luckily able to get a pair of Long Branch at $125 though, which is a steal.
I simply can't agree with this. All of the shoes that end up at Nordstrom have made it past AE's QA/QC department. They are all considered firsts.
When the store manager orders a shoe to be sent from a remote location (Nordstrom warehouse or directly from AE), he isn't looking at them personally. You can't say that the shoe that somehow gets shipped to someone when the manager hits the "order" button will be better than the one that gets shipped when the customer or some other sales associate hits the "order" button.
If the shoe is being pulled from the back room of a specific store, where the local manager may be able to compare more than one pair and offer you the most pristine one, then dealing with a manager may be of some benefit. Even then, you are dealing with a subjective opinion of which pair looks better.
If the entire transaction is done electronically, and the shoes are sent from a remote location, there is absolutely no way to say that people will get a pair of shoes that doesn't have a subjective flaw.
I could be wrong about what list on what day was emailed for the 2 for $250 deal. But I think it is worth a phone call or an email to place the order on the list in hand.
Here is why. The following was emailed to me this week for all the items on sale (2 for $250) in my size:
Although some of the above are already at $99, the others are on sale for $125 ea (or 2 for $250)
I suggest for folks to order what they want from whatever recent list - and get a confirmation on the $125. There is nothing to lose when asking.
Black Auburns today.
David that entire list of urs are close outs.
