Those Bradleys are a great deal. I've never even seen 2nds in shell at that price. Pity I already have the Delrays in Chili.

I know - I already have a pair of Bradleys and am considering getting another pair just because.  Also, the Westchester penny loafers are the same deal

Well...crap. I had just breathed a sigh of relief after telling myself that I didn't need another split toe blucher even it was in shell...now I'm contemplating those Westchesters.

This is an interesting one - I had to size up half a size, which surprised me. I am TTS in almost every shoe, including the AE Players (executive last), Lombard (executive last), and Clifton (8?).

But judging from the other responses, it looks like it's just me...

So I've done the following Strand/Van Ness (oxfords/closed tongue) = bar lass, and the Lombard (wingtip/blucher) = bar lass for the time being.

I will let you know after a few wears. Not really sure though

Can you provide a diagram/instructions as to how you tie this method..

dumb question, but if you have a choose a more versatile color for suit/jeans/khakis of a pair of Strand would it be brown or walnut?

My vote is walnut.  I just love the color. And it goes with so many suit colors. Brown does also, so really a style choice

Walnut fo' sho'. That color is their best, by far.

OK, compare pics:

Sanford in walnut from the email:
381
Sanford in walnut from the website:
350

No wonder those suede boots were so far off in color...

I know Walnut is beautiful and forum favorite but I choose Drk Brown only because I already have a pair with lighter shade (Chestnut) for Spring and Summer wear..I prefer darker shades for F/W seasons.. IMO, flexibility wise, I'll go with Drk Brown..Wow/FU factor, definitely Walnut smile.gif

I did do some research in the last 5/ pages and could not find an answer - so here goes. Where is this sale, at the shoebank?

Thanks in advance.

Why do you say walnut? Do you really think Walnut works with a navy suit or charcoal suit? I am just aksing b/c I purchased a pair of black Lombards so they would match with all my suits.

Thanks for the input. I have crap wingtip that I got from yoox for $75 and it's very close to a walnut color and that's why I am asking. Also I am thinking about picking up the Walnut but not chocolate Dalton, which makes me almost 3 pairs of shoes with similar/identical color and thus the question.

Definitely, thats where Walnut excels IMO.  Although there was that picture of the Walnut Strands with Light gray and in it looked great.
