Depends on your size, since many models are sold out. Aberdeen is a great shoe. I like the Elgin and Stewart as well.post #39183 of 707372/19/14 at 9:02pmpost #39184 of 707372/19/14 at 9:09pmpost #39185 of 707372/19/14 at 9:11pm
Keep in mind that the deal you are getting right now for the 1st quality shoes is almost unprecedented. I only recall something similar once in the past, some time last year. I don't think it will happen again any time soon. If I were you, I would get 2 or 3 pairs, in the following order of preference: Aberdeen, Amok, Stewart/Elgin. In this case you cover all bases with a nice longwing, a chukka and a plain toe blucher (PTB) or a cap-toe oxford.post #39186 of 707372/19/14 at 9:15pmQuote:Originally Posted by cincikid

I've been weighing my options for a snuff suede shoe and am torn between the Amok and the Neumok. Was looking for a good all purpose casual shoe that I could pair with a variety of stuff. Any thoughts on what might be a better choice?
I was a little hesitant on the Amok squeaking and sizing. Any thoughts on if it would it be better to go from E -> EEE or just go up a half size and keep the width the same?post #39191 of 707372/20/14 at 12:35amQuote:Originally Posted by mdubs
I actually managed to purchase a pair of Walnut Shell Dundee's from a fellow SF member...
I am planning to wear these bad boys tomorrow!
It honestly took me a while to warm up to the Chukka design, but these are now my third pair of Chukkas (first is Alden Color 8, second AE Snuff Amok - Definitely worth the $125ish that they run right now!!!)
Beautiful color at a great price ... congratulations on your purchase.post #39192 of 707372/20/14 at 3:50am
As a politico myself, I love the Daltons. I have 3 pair (1shell). Also, love the independence collection. I have 2 Jefferson (1 shell), the Rutledge and Williams. I think having a name like Thomas Jefferson on your feet is pretty cool. What is even cooler is having a name like Rutledge or Williams on your feet so you can tell the story of the namesake when someone asks. I studied history then went into politics. :)post #39193 of 707372/20/14 at 4:13amQuote:
I kind of avoided the decision this week by picking up both a tan suede Amok and bitter chocolate suede McGraw, giving me a range in casual. The snuff suede Neumok would fit right in the middle as a three-model (boot, wingtip, loafer) three-shade suede trifeca you could go for? ... just sayin' (I already have something different in the pipeline for my snuff suede gap-filler)post #39194 of 707372/20/14 at 4:30am
I hate myself right now for not getting those Elgins when I first saw them yesterday. Forgot about it until after I left the office and then by the time I went back to get them they were already sold out. Really nothing else on there that I want at this point.post #39195 of 707372/20/14 at 5:17amQuote:Originally Posted by cincikid
I was told they had the leftover uppers and decided to finally get rid of them, hence a whole bunch of shoes previously sold out suddenly went on clearance. In many cases, they actually have to put the shoes together, which might take anywhere from a couple days to a few months, depending on the luck of the draw.
Ah that makes sense. Thanks for the intel.
