If you like loafers, the Grayson is a great shoe. I would wear Merlot Graysons with grays and navys. Some people won't wear loafers with a suit, but I think the Grayson is dressy enough for a suit - just my personal opinion, not a rule. However, I think the Merlot Grayson would be great with slacks and sport coat - tie or not.For more formal occassions - evenings, interviews, court rooms, etc. - I would stick with a lace up shoe. But again, that is just my personal...
With the discontinuation of the Westchester, the Patriot or Randolph is about all they have left. But try them on - I can't get my foot in either one due to my high instep.Chris
Allen Edmonds Shelton in Walnut/Brown in size 9.5D. These were purchased new by me at a local menswear / shoe store. 1st quality. Includes original box and burgundy flannel shoe bags. Worn sparingly - see photos. Always had shoe trees in them. Only selling because my high instep gets pinched with this shoe. So if you have a high instep, please consider that. $135 USD. Price includes shipping via USPS Priority Mail within contiguous 48 United States. Can accept...
Walnut, Bourbon, Brown. Sorry for bad photo, but hopefully this helps. Disclaimer, my Bourbon Strands were very different from my Bourbon Flatirons - your mileage may vary.Chris
They have new webgems on the AE site. Merlot calf - including MacNeils and Strands and some others. Chris
I'm in the same boat - I can't wear the Patriot due to a high instep.The loafer that fits me very well is the Westchester - but it has been discontinued. And the Jermyn also fits me well - but it is also discontinued.The Nashua fits me very well, so if you can go a bit more casual I would suggest you try that one.I'm hoping for something new as I cannot wear most loafers currently offered by AE.Chris
My brown / navy mesh Strawfuts fit the same as my McAllisters. - but more comfortable as the mesh is very forgiving. If you are looking at the linen Strawfut, they are fully lined, so I would think they would fit the same as a McAllister.Chris
I have Strands, Park Aves, and Flatirons. The 333 last definitely feels wider than the 5 last, but not much longer. The 333 last is much more fully fitting in the toe box. I wear a 9.5D in the 5 last and the 9.5D in the 333 last fits me. However, I feel a 9.25D would be perfect in the 333 last. I tried a 9E in the 3 last and the heel was too big.
I still use my colored laces. I like to match them with socks or the shirt if I'm wearing a brighter color shirt. I don't know if the trend is over. Where I am located I don't know if I have seen anybody else with colored laces. But that's fine - I also see a lot of square toe shoes and other "fashion" choices I don't follow.Chris
