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..
I would go with the brown. It's more conservative.Quote:
I think any Allen Edmonds outlet. I was told the same by the Riverhead NY store.Quote:
I would say it would go fine with navy and charcoal, but black would be more conservative. I personally wouldn't wear black with navy.post #1218 of 7073712/2/11 at 9:20amQuote:
Just my opinion. I think it looks great with a navy suit. If you have black already, the dark brown won't be that much of a change. But, as you can see above, different opinions.
I think you can't go wrong with either. But the walnut looks so good and is more of a change from black for when you want to mix things up.post #1219 of 7073712/2/11 at 9:21amQuote:Originally Posted by tv2177
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.
Yeah, in that case, the brown might be a better choice.post #1220 of 7073712/2/11 at 9:39ampost #1221 of 7073712/2/11 at 10:25ampost #1222 of 7073712/2/11 at 10:30amQuote:
I agree that the bar lacing looks nicer - it's just too much effort to do the unnatural things one needs to do on shoes with odd numbers of eyelets, IMO.post #1223 of 7073712/2/11 at 11:57ampost #1224 of 7073712/2/11 at 12:06pmpost #1225 of 7073712/2/11 at 12:08pmAs an update to my Amok issues, I returned them to the Boston store today. The crew there was great, even going to the point of trying to locate pairs that looked like the ones on the web (without me asking them to do it). I have my doubts that they'll be able to track any down, but I really appreciated the effort. Regardless of what the shoes might look like, AE does have pretty good customer service.
I also received the pair of Dalton seconds I ordered. Great boot at that price! Although, I think they're trying a little too hard with the pinky-red pull tab and lining.post #1226 of 7073712/2/11 at 12:14pmQuote:
Have to keep an eye out, there was multiple posts on this thread alone about the recent AE sales. There were many, Endless.com, Amazon.com, AE Outlets. Now you might have to wait for the Nordstrom anniversary sale next year, or contact SF member Allaboutshoes (he has an Allen Edmonds Mega Thread you can look into).post #1227 of 7073712/2/11 at 12:15pmAbout lacing - The Fifth Avenues have an even number of laces, so I tried the bar lacing because it looks neater. However, I can confirm what someone else asked - it does make it harder to tigthen the laces. I'm going to change it to the old cross method I learnt when I was but a wee lad.post #1228 of 7073712/2/11 at 12:16pmQuote:Originally Posted by REguy

You know, based on what i have heard and read, i dogged a bullet with the Amok. Even my Allen Edmonds SA was reluctant to show interest in their Amok model (which he didn't even carry in his store). There is always the Malvern...post #1229 of 7073712/2/11 at 12:19pmpost #1230 of 7073712/2/11 at 12:19pm
