Brooks Brothers Strand vs Allen Edmonds Strand? What's the difference? Visual and physical... Thx
$400...REALLY???? SMH....
FML...SUGGESTIONS NEEDED!! 36 yr old...need and want a walnut shoe. The Player would be perfect but its discontinued. Options now are the Clifton, Strand and the McAllister. I want them for mainly business casual put want to pair them occasionally with jeans and a suit. Business Casual im referring to slacks, chinos and a tie.
