Personally I think the chiseled last makes it less versatile. The elongated chiseled toe might make it tougher with jeans, but that could be just me.

 

I also realized that a split-toe blucher like a LaSalle or Delray in brown or Chili might be a good option as well.

Wondering if anyone has some pictures of some older, and well worn dark brown shell dundees? I am thinking about picking up this make up this summer, and would like to see some more pictures if possible. Most all of the ones I can find are either of cappuccino/truffle shell, and/or shoes in barely worn condition.

I agree on both counts. Larchmont & RL Sanderson are gorgeous shoes, but they're only versatile if you can pull off skinny chic (and get that last to fit). I don't personally like split toe bluchers b/c they seem to lack personality, but they would work with suit and casual wear.

I love these. I am missing a pair of burgundy shell MacNeils. I need some!

 

And I wear my black shell MacNeils all the time with navy blue, black and gray suits. I also wear my walnut shell MacNeils with brown edging with the right gray and right blue suits. I never wear my walnut shell MacNeils with natural edging with a suit, the natural is to casual, but the others are great with a suit.

Interesting divot. I had one as well in the same place in the pair of Jefferson's that I sent back. That was the second attempt they made. I rejected the option of waiting for a third try.

Here's one to change your mind about split-toe bluchers.  Gaziano & Girling's Hove:

I work in manufacturing and wear steel toes five days a week and do not get to wear my nice shoes very often, so I'd like to get something formal that will dress down as deftly as possible. My other shoes are black McTavish and dark brown Long Branch.

Thanks,
Tom

Personally, I'd go with MacNeils in brown shell. As recent posts indicate, some frown on bluchers with a suit--but I'd venture that most on this forum would concede that these shoes would look great in a suit. This color and style would also work with jeans and khakis.

 

Speaking of MacNeils . . . one of the few holes in my collection at this point is an LWB.  I prefer the MacNeil to the Larchmont.  Also, my collection is lacking a little bit in chili.  Lo and behold, on my latest SB list there appears a pair of chili grain BB MacNeils at a closeout price, so the possibility of killing two birds with one stone presents itself.  Has anyone seen a chili grain MacNeil?  Is it these?

Are these loakes from BB? 

 

I don't think AE has this type of nailing pattern.

The description says "Made in the USA" so I believe not.

Nailing pattern looks identical to my shell Leeds and Daltons -- seems standard for AE when they use a combination heel.

Hi all, would anyone know what model AEs these are? They essentially look like strands without the medallion on the toe cap. Thanks!

I had a pair of chili Regent Streets which are a LWB just on a different last I believe. Just like the MacNeils you are referencing, they were chili grain/calf combo. I absolutely love the chili color, especially in the sunlight.

Enjoy the pic.
