Looking for some recommendations about which shells to get. The following is what's available in my size at $299:
Randolph (burgundy, black)
Park Ave (black)
Macneil (burgundy, black)
Dundee (only says "truffle" where as the rest give the color and clearly state cordovan. It's priced at $299 though, so should I assume this is shell?)
My current collection:
Black calf Strand
Walnut calf Strand
Walnut Shell Dalton
What do you guys think is the best way to go here? Thanks!
Without any knowledge of your dress environment or what you would be wearing with them, I will note that you have a black and a light brown brogued balmoral dress shoe, a grey casual shoe and a pair of light brown boots. If you are looking to fill holes in your wardrobe, I'd start with a burgundy loafer (the Randolphs are the most dressy, followed by the McGraw, followed by the Patriot), followed by a burgundy blucher wingtip (MacNeil), followed by either the black Park Ave or the black Leeds. However, the lack of availability of "truffle" in the future would make me go for the Dundee first.
