Try the new Larchmont, in dark brown. It's a nice looking shoe, and would give you another blutcher alternative.

Regarding the 5th street, I am not convinced on It's ability to work conservatively with a suit. It is a boot aftet all, maybe some real life pics will serve to solidify It's validity.

I just looked at it and like it in dark chocolate.  How does the 3 last compare to the 5?

I'm an 11B/C but can do 11D in the 5 last. I tried on an 11D and a 10.5D in the new 3 last Larchmont and they were both much too full. The toe is fairly elongated as well. I don't find them any narrower than the 5 last, but maybe I'm wrong.

McAllister is also available in Merlot which is a very nice color.  And the Cambridge is available in Burgundy.  Both seem like good choices.

True, but since he was missing a brown shoe, a brown wingtip made sense as well. All the options are good ones.

Agreed

If they are discontinuing the 5th street, I hope they replace it with a similar dress boot on the same last. I was never able to pick up the 5th streets due to needing a C width.

Holy $hit. Can you do this and post pics?

Here is the picture I posted a few pages back of my current dress shoe collection:

Another pair of strands in dark brown?

It might be a while, but I will post.  I am also thinking about a blue suede PA; it's a little bit more versatile.

Do you know what shade of blue you want (not sure if there's a certain hue you have to choose).
post #3447 of 70737

I'm not sure either.  Probably navy like the Players Shoe (which I hope to try on later this month).  I'm guessing I will have to pick a leather they already offer.  But I will find out.  I like it because if I want something like a Dalton in brown shell or tan suede, they'll do it.  I just have to pay for it and wait. 

 

**EDIT**

 

Likewise, if you missed a WebGem like the cappucino shells, you can probably still order it custom.  Expect to pay an additional $125 though.

I'm not ready to repeat styles yet.  Mabye a Larchmont or Strawfut in a darker brown than the walnut.

Hey guys.. I work in a business casual environment.  Is the strand (walnut) to dressy of a shoe to wear to work?  

post #3450 of 70737
^ i dont think a pair of walnut strand would be too dressy to wear in a business casual environment at all
