I like shortwing bluchers. Here are mine.And my only longwingI think the longwing is a bit more casual than the shortwing. But I don't think the difference is enough to move to one choice or the other.Chris
I recently picked up the Dalton in Chocolate. This was my first AE boot besides the Cascade ankle boot. I really like my Dalton - in fact I'm a bit mad that boot season is ending and it will be the Fall before I can start wearing these again. I was afraid a boot would not be as comfortable as a shoe, but I was wrong. The boot does feel different, but it is extremely comfortable.Here are my chocolate DaltonsChris
Here are some of my thoughts - some will match what others have posted and some are new ideas.The oxford cloth slacks are great for summer. Linen is good, but will wrinkle quickly.I am also going to suggest pincord slacks. They are usually available in a pale light blue that would show off your Boca Ratons and Strawfuts nicely.

This is long, but it is a list of AE models and their lasts that I have - it is not up to date, it probably lacks the last year or so, but those should be on the website. Also, some models shown are not the same as the current model - i.e. the Dalton shown on the list is a loafer offered several years ago, not the current boot. [[SPOILER]] Chris
