I'm literally sitting here waiting for Fedex to deliver this same shoe. I have Park Ave in Bourbon, 5th Ave Walnut, Parkway in Blk, and now these will make a nice addition! I have the same belt in walnut and bourbon. Best belt ever! Got the rutledges for $229 from the sale
Congrats trev230 on the new gear!!! The Rutledge (333-Last) likes my foot! Here's my Larchmont (another 333-Last shoe) and Manistee belt in bourbon:
The bourbon belt is actually my favorite of the two, but I have more to wear with walnut (I don't want it to get too creasy from regular wear, though!)... A burgundy/merlot belt and I'm good.
...Patience is a virtue trev! I am beginning the 8-10 week wait for Eagle County MTO today; I hope my makeup is acceptable: Chili calf, extra burnish, V-Tread (my 'Topy guy' made a good point - the lug sole DOES hold on to water, salt, etc...), no speed lacing, split reverse black welt, wheeled edge, transparent brown dressing . Want it to be 'smart casual' styled; slightly more casual than the Dalton, but more dressy than the Long Branch... I haven't heard/seen this setup yet. Fingers crossed...
