Thanks for the fast response guys.

Well I don't wear suits to work, just dress pants and a dress shirt. Winter would be a sweater over a dress shirt, never any ties. Reason I asked about the 2nd black pair is that it goes with everything expect brown pants and figured it would be versatile.

I wear gray, navy, black and some slight variation of navy blue with a little pin stripe in the slacks.

Yeah seeing the walnut strand does look good. What is weird is that my fifth avenue's the right heel is slipping a bit but the left fits perfect. I'll have to get some insoles.

No sir, they were included. Plus 35% off...inlove.gif...the shoe bank.

How did you pull that coup sir?
post #23149 of 70737

Er, sorry to hijack the discussion. Basically I just call when there's a shoebank sale and see what they have and go from there (the total of 35% off was from the Memorial Day sale iirc). Today starts the tent sale for example so--good day to check in for something you've really wanted but haven't been able to justify buying in firsts.

The variations in shell color amuse me.  All three of the below are walnut shell, but they are three very distinct colors.  Is the MacNeil what one might consider ravello?  It's very red.

 

what did the Macneils end up setting you back? My quest for alden ravellos is dragging on, these AEs might just fit the need..

Generally, take a pair home every once in a while for conditioning / polishing. I've been considering bringing my polish, etc, in to the office and staying late to polish everything.

Agreed!

Wow, well that's a first for me.

post #23154 of 70737

Think I may be good and only order 1 of the 3 shoes I want. 

 

How do they Neumok Snuff Suede fit compared to the Mcallister? I know it's the same last, but these are unlined.

The tent sale isn't what threw us off, it's the free shoe trees.  That's like $50.00 of free merchandise that they just gave you with no advertisement.

The reason I ask is because I am thinking of ordering from Paul an MTO Walnut Fifth Street very soon.

Oops, I meant Walnut Fifth AVEs... sorry for getting your hopes up.

Oh I gotcha. It was a surprise to me as well, as it was not advertised or mentioned. The shoe bank rep Shirley tossed in a nice handwritten note too. Just can't beat that.

Trying it out, worse thing is you send them back again.

Thanks for the advice. I decided to just try returning them once more. Hopefully the next pair looks better.

Polo jock, all I can say is wow. Those are the sheltons I saw in my head when I went down that path 6 months ago. Bravo!

Today: macneils in my hotel room.

Was able to pick up the Strand.

 

Does anyone know if it uses the same last as the Mcallister?
