Shopping Spree at Nordstrom’s

My wife recently came into possession of a $200 gift card for Nordstrom’s. At first I was happy as a pig farmer with new hip waders, thinking of all the clothes we could get with that wad of dough. Then we actually went to Nordstrom’s.

Good Goobly Goop! A tie for $135? A sweater for $200? For that much I want my clothes to be self-cleaning and to adjust themselves as I get older and fatter. Does anybody ever really shop there? I can’t imagine paying those prices. For the cost of one of their off-the-rack suits I can fly to Bangkok and get one custom tailored in a day.

I am still in shock.

    If she can use the GC online, just wait until after the holidays to get decent clearance deals. Don’t waste your time going to the store itself, the website has much better deals.

    Well you can get something at Nordstrom’s or you can go to their outlet store Nordstrom’s Rack. Just an option!

    I love Nordstrom’s. Their smart care khakis are awesome and usually only run between $40 and $55. Their dress shirts while expensive are wonderfully comfortable. Do they have overpriced stuff? Absolutely.

    I’m a big fan of nordstrom’s myself, (their made to measure suits are actually somewhat of a bargain) but Carl is right, $200 bucks isn’t going get you much of a “spree” at that place. I’ve seen a basic pair of slacks with higher price tags than that
