Yes. Style differences usually include poron insoles, a different sole, and/or a different last -- but they're made to the same standards, on the same production lines, by the same people.
I've had a pair of Park Avenues for the last five years. They've been my go-to for funerals, black tie, job interviews -- I even got married in 'em. Then in January I ordered a pair of black Carlyles with a Dainite sole, since I'm in a tuxedo often and sometimes the weather is nasty.For me it's no contest. The Carlyle is a much sleeker shoe in every way; I'm happy to lose the captoe if it means my feet look that much better otherwise. If I wore a suit to work every day I...
I had an idea for how to do this, so I googled it.That was a mistake.

Yup. The most classic shell shoe there is, really. Ordered them the day Paul G. implemented the no-MTO-fee program a few years ago. Love 'em.Welcome to your next footwear obsession. Shell is dangerous stuff.
Even with the $ spanking the €, I'm glad my feet are too narrow for Carmina... because I would own far too many balmoral boots like that. Those're gorgeous.My four pairs of burgundy shell all display similar variance. Nice family photo!
Quite a few. My big-deal fishing trip is opening day for striper on the Chesapeake. It's usually still cold out there on the third Saturday in April, so a few years ago I picked up some high-top deck shoes from Quoddy; I like them very much:Quoddy allowed me to customize them through the roof, too. They fit my weirdly long and narrow feet just fine.Alternates include Sebago, Oak Street, and Rancourt (who I believe was affiliated with Allen Edmonds in the past).Mea culpa @...
Take the plunge now: get something in shell cordovan. I'd go burgundy Grayson tassel loafers if you can get away with them at work, or burgundy or brown shell Strands if you can't.
I've gotta bow out. April is a good month for me financially (if you play a brass instrument, there are multiple churches vying for your skills on Easter) but my company is dropping employer-sponsored cell plans, so I suddenly have a new monthly lineitem in my budget. I hope you can make twelve!
