@lvrpl as long as the shoe is in a walnut or more casual color, the bal blucher distinction makes virtually no difference. A slight edge will go to the blucher wingtip. Stay away from a black bal and jeans.
Love hearing and seeing pix of these AEs meant for the overseas market. Remember the Schnautel (sp?). Also, as was pointed out, some pix aren't available on the shoebank. I know, I know, I'm a shoe nut
Thanks, MWS. Is there any cork filler involved at all. I seem to remember that there isn't. Maybe this is why people complain that Rancourt boots aren't that comfortable. (I don't own any Rancourt boots, just mocs).
I'll be in Chicago in early April. I don't really "need" any more clothes/shoes/accoutrements, but can be persuaded if it's on sale. Any places I can stop that will have some deals next month? Or maybe running sales on a more/less regular basis. I'm not the kind of guy that goes into Tom Ford or Zegna and drops a couple thou on a suit (full msrp), lol. Been getting into quality goodyear welted shoes recently.
[[SPOILER]] DC. I must have gotten on a good train car, lol. Our cars are carpeted, which is good, except you can't remove chewing gum from carpet. Edit: we are starting to get some new cars that have that MTA-stye linoleum floors!
