We have the utmost respect for them and very much admire and align with their focus on providing men with an exceptional shopping experience,” said Ariel Nelson, Jack Erwin’s co-founder (along with Lane Gerson). It’s a big move for a brand that’s doubled its revenue since its launch in October 2013 — and once sold out of its first stock of shoes in just two months. They’ve since proven a hot commodity for their mix of style and affordable pricing — pillars to which every guy should aspire.And for those who simply can’t wait to get their hands on more Jack Erwin shoes, Nordstrom will be more than amply stocked. The assortment — which debuted at select retail locations and online last week — includes the handsome Joe Cap-Toe Oxford and the sharp Noah Quarter-Brogue Oxford.The preppy and sleek Abe Penny Loafer also joins the rotation. Those who need a pair of go-anywhere shoes for a stylish business casual office look are also in luck — the Adam Wingtip Oxford is ready for any office style scenario.The brand said it’s looking forward to providing customers with the chance to get up close and personal with its sharp, sleek and stylish dress shoes — and for those who’ve only experienced the brand online, that’s about as good as it gets.center_img The Best Men’s Waterproof Boots for Tackling All Weather Editors’ Recommendations The Best Men’s Chukka Boots for 2019last_img read more

Relief effort in Afghanistan faces increasing obstacles UN officials say

“The operating environment in Afghanistan is getting worse by the day,” spokesman Hasan Ferdous told reporters in Islamabad. “This is a country with 6 million people in need of aid. They are not getting anywhere near the aid they need.”Reporting on several mine-related incidents, Mr. Ferdous said five children living in a camp for internally displaced persons had died recently as a result of landmine explosions. “Apparently the children were looking for firewood as the distribution of fuel for heating and cooking purposes had been stopped in the camp,” he said, adding that the UN-supported Mine Action Programme for Afghanistan estimated that each week between 40 to 100 people were injured by mines.The World Food Programme (WFP), meanwhile, said it had regained control of its Kabul warehouse seized earlier by the Taliban. “The armed Taliban have left the warehouse,” WFP spokesman Khaled Mansour told the Islamabad briefing. “We urge the Taliban to return the control of the other warehouse in Kandahar to WFP.”In another development, High Commissioner Ruud Lubbers, in remarks to the Permanent Council of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) in Vienna, said that refugees and asylum-seekers were already the object of considerable mistrust in many countries and that the war on terrorism must not become a war on Afghans nor a war on Islam. read more
