Cinciikid - Those look great. The shell looks amazing out of the box.

The brown Patriot cordovan webgems i ordered last month never made the 10/15 promised ship date. I called in about them last week to which I was told that they would have to email me an update.
No email ever came so I called in to AE late today. I was told that the uppers did not pass inspection pushing back delivery an extra couple of weeks.
I was relying on having these shoes no later than the first of the month since I;ll be travelling, but now that is in doubt.
On the flipside , all of you 2nds fiends will be glad to get a shot at a pair in 10EEE soon.post #32298 of 7073710/21/13 at 2:47pmQuote:

I know this is off topic, but there are clearly a lot of thoughtful enlightened people on this thread whose input I would seriously appreciate.
I'm getting married in May 2014 and our color scheme is grey,yellow, and purple.
I was wondering if anyone has some ideas of good color schemes I could wear in terms of my shirt and tie. My suit will be some shade of grey. The easy obvious choice is just a white shirt with a purple or yellow tie (thinking I'll have my groomsmen all wear one color, and I'd wear the other). Maybe that is the best idea, but are there are any other shirt colors that might be worth considering?
Also, any sub-$500 off-the-rack suits that are wedding worthy (would take to a tailor of course)? I'm about 6' 220 with wide shoulders. I usually wear a 44r, sometimes a 46 depending on the cut. If I have to I'll shell out the $ for a custom-made suit, but if there are some good OTR options, I'd rather put that money into something else.
Finally, what shoes would you go with? Black or Walnut Strands?
Thanks in advance!
As far as $500 range suits, I can vouch for the Benjamin line of suiting from eHaberdasher. They are fully canvassed and easily worth much more than they are being sold for. Sizing is a nice slim fit. However, the only gray they have at this time is medium gray (I've been lobbying Ben to get some lighter grays...none yet). If this is a super casual, outdoor wedding, you could always try a yellow or purple gingham shirt with the opposite color solid knit tie. If it's not that casual, I'd go with a white shirt and a yellow tie with a purple lapel flower. Walnut Strands with either of these choices, but get a matching belt.post #32301 of 7073710/21/13 at 3:20pmQuote:Originally Posted by OptoDoc

If he's going to roll the dice on a Benjamin suit from EHaberdasher, he needs to order it immediately and post fit pictures. While the fabric and full canvas are nice, the cut does not work for all builds. I had to return mine because the collar gap was beyond extreme.
I would recommend Kent Wang's MTM program. Many have done it for their wedding and the cost is somewhere around $800. Well worth the additional $300 in my opinion.post #32302 of 7073710/21/13 at 3:49pmpost #32303 of 7073710/21/13 at 4:04pmpost #32304 of 7073710/21/13 at 4:12pmQuote:I figured that was a natural welt. I went with chili. Excited to get mine!Originally Posted by cincikid
Thank you, gentlemen. I am really happy with how they turned out.
To answer your questions:
1. Jungle--you're right, these are cappuccino shell
2. Tifosi--the welt is natural and the edge is transparent chili. I was actually expecting it to be a little lighter (it's a shed darker in life than it is on the pictures), so I might want to check with Allison whether they might be able change the color at this point.post #32305 of 7073710/21/13 at 4:16pmpost #32306 of 7073710/21/13 at 4:45pmpost #32307 of 7073710/21/13 at 5:37pmpost #32308 of 7073710/21/13 at 5:44pmpost #32309 of 7073710/21/13 at 5:50pmpost #32310 of 7073710/21/13 at 5:55pmQuote:Originally Posted by WestCoastBadger
Can anyone post a side-by-side picture comparison of Walnut Burnished Calf vs. Bourbon Calf? I'm going back and forth between the two colors for a pair of Dalton wingtip boots and I thought a pic of both (shared lighting, etc..) might help me out. If the picture happens to have a pair of grey trousers or jeans in it as well, all the better.
Also, can anyone chime in with a comparison of the fit between the Dalton and the Strand (the AE shoe I have in a 13D)?
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.
