Transitioning into more business suit attire, navy and grey suits.
I've been doing a lot of research into each shoe.
Grenson Stanley Brogue in Tan (aware it's made in India) is on sale for $200.
Allen Edmonds Strands in Walnut is nice too.
Which should I go for? Any other choices?
I don't need the best, just a good starter dress shoe that is versatile, more than decent quality and that won't break the bank.post #35301 of 7073712/18/13 at 3:31pmpost #35302 of 7073712/18/13 at 3:57pmpost #35303 of 7073712/18/13 at 4:08pmI am about to buy my first pair of AEs. I am starting with a pair of black park aves. Should I go to the AE store and buy them at full retail (I try to never do full retail) or buy a pair at Nordstrom Rack? I understand the rack AEs are seconds and not warrantied by AE.
I have an AE near me in Atlanta so I can go and get the whole fitting experience. Are there any deals to get a discount at AE? Is there an AE rep that posts in this thread that can help a get into his first pair of AEs?post #35304 of 7073712/18/13 at 4:24pmQuote:Originally Posted by halfnhalfnhalf
That is very interesting and very enlightening - thanks for sharing.
Even though the PP isn't exactly what I'm looking for, I do think it's a nice boot, and if/when they go on sale I might take a flyer on a pair. I recently tried on literally 15 pairs of RWs, 1000Ks, and Chippewas in various shapes and sizes, and was disappointed to realize that none of them really did it for me. I'll also be checking out Alden's Indy boot when I'm in San Francisco next week, but I'm really not a fan of the moc toe. If all else fails, I do still have the option of the "Allison special" Eagle County MTO/custom - but I'm not sure I'm prepared to wait two or three months for them as seems to be the norm these days.
Alden 404's (Indy boots in Kudu) FTW!!! You have no idea how much they rock!post #35305 of 7073712/18/13 at 4:29pmpost #35306 of 7073712/18/13 at 4:31pmpost #35307 of 7073712/18/13 at 4:57pmpost #35308 of 7073712/18/13 at 5:01pmpost #35309 of 7073712/18/13 at 5:35pmpost #35310 of 7073712/18/13 at 5:51pm
