I was ready to make the Kenilworth my next purchase and by the time I decided to pull the trigger they were gone. Definitely disappointed. I've always thought there was something off about the the look of the Jodox and couldn't put my finger on it - I like your description, I think it sums it up. Hopefully they bring back a sleek looking derby, along the lines of the Kenilworth.
I went into the store today and ordered a pair of a Golden Brown CXL Long Branch since they didn't have the size. Thanks to those for the input.   On a side note, I brought a gal friend of mine with me to the store and while there she was immediately drawn to the Normandy. She went as far to trying to figure out whether she could get them in her size (unfortunately, her feet were too small). The leather was very supple and comfortable. It looks like it word work really...
 I agree. I think it will end up being a boot now and a Clark Street in the spring.I like the Eagle County the more I look at it. Does anyone have any pictures of it in the wild or have any thoughts on that vs. the Long Branch in terms of versatility?
  I think that's my issue. With winter coming and the fact I walk to work (in Minneapolis), my choices shrink depending on the weather. Its pushing me towards a shoe/boot that can handle the elements with style - think Long Branch. There's just something about that Natural CXL Clark Street I can't get past though, especially when I think of a shoe I'd want to wear year round if I could.  Any other suggestions for those in colder climates?
I've been lurking the last couple weeks as I've been trying to decide what to buy during the RDA sale. All I've done is made myself even more unsure of what to add to my small collection. I work in a casual where people wear anything from jeans/chinos with a polo or button down to a suit, depending on their day, although I typically fall in the casual to business casual spectrum. With that, I'm looking for something with some versatility to wear at work and outside of it....
Cordovan McGraws today
I wear a 7E in the 5 last (Strand and Macallister), although a little snug some days and ended up with a 7D in the Gobi, which fits perfectly. I was originally told to try a half size up by my SA due to having a small, wide foot but the 7.5D was too large.Hope that helps!
Broke out the Snuff Suede Gobis for the first time today. I'm amazed at how comfortable they are out of the box!
I can't say that I'm a fan of merlot/burgundy shoes, although I can't really put my finger on what it is about them. I might just need to see them on my feet as just looking at them in store and online hasn't done anything for me. I'll have to take a look at the Leeds. I think if I got the Dalton's, they'd be used for casual wear. Whether they fill an actual need or not, they're some good looking boots.Would a black cap toe(fifth ave) be a shoe worth considering at this...
I received an AE gift card for Christmas and am planning on eventually using towards a new pair shoes/boots. I was hoping to get some suggestions on what I should be looking at as I build out my wardrobe. I wear suits 3-4 days a week for work and prefer something that can be dressed up and worn casually. I currently have: Black Shell McGraws Walnut Strand Bourbon Mcallister Considering: Bourbon Daltons Black or Brown Fifth Avenue Brown Kenilworth
