Nordstrom, Fashion Valley, 6997 Friars Road,
You can get an Elvis haircut, an Elvis jacket, wear an Elvis smirk, pick up an Elvis "Blue Suede Shoes" lamp for $37.99 on the 'Net or a Blue Suede Shoes plate for $26.50. But a man can't find real blue suede shoes to wear as a living, walking tribute to The King. A check of a cross-section of hip, warehouse, and just plain ol' department-store shoe departments turned up no blue suede shoes for men. Women never have this problem. In fact, blue suede is part of the official fall lineup. Then, when all tradition seemed lost, good old Nordstrom, Fashion Valley found the Real Thing. Sort of. Yes, says Pablo the salesman, we have one line of shoes. For men. Loafers. Blue suede. Composition soles, casual dress style. Made in Memphis? Uh, no. Made in Italy. Ferragamo. Price? $265.
