Thanks.  Burgundy on leather sole. The SA at Port Washington just confirmed for me that they are corrected grain.  Perhaps this is an inducement to get the shell!
Sorry if this has been addressed: did AE at some point upgrade the Kenwood from corrected grain, brush-off leather to fullgrain calf? I am guessing so based on the current Shoebank description--but it's a little ambiguous, describing the shoe as premium unlined calfskin AND "grain calf." What does this mean? Is the strap alone corrected grain? I'm thinking about nabbing a pair of seconds for $169. Or shell for $399? Or not.
 You don't need to look out of place to look stylish.  If I had to pick one pair of shoes, however, I'd choose LWB (McNeil or McGregor) in brown.  They are Ivy/trad and can't look too out of place, and they work well with what you're wearing.
 All the posts about MTO Shakers have prompted me to repost mine.  For what it's worth, I too was inspired by cap-toed English boots.  These, along with my new Moras in bourbon, are the most versatile shoes I own, as they really do work with everything from jeans to a suit.
I'm completely missing it (and I am myself today returning a pair of McGregor "firsts" today).
I'd get the McGregors and agree with everyone else that you're definitely not too young. Boomers rejected their fathers' style, which is now enjoying a renaissance with younger generations.Not regularly, but I pull this off on the road when I don't want to take a 2nd pair of shoes.
Wigwam Everyday Fusion.  Only problem is that they're generally available only in solid colors (although I have a few patterned pairs).
Perhaps. As a rule, she's always right--except when she isn't. If she'll be disappointed that you paid more heed to strangers on a forum than her, wear the Harrisons. If she's voting for them without much conviction, however, I'd still recommend the PAs.in addition to the other two clarifications, I'd just add that black doesn't go with everything. In fact, it's the "best" shoe in very few cases, this being one of them.
