Tonight, i got my Kenwood from the clearance sale... At first, i was a bit disapointed as the color dosent match at all the picture on the website(on the picture it show a brown/redwine when i got a wallnut brown mixed with a liytle bit of black between the grain)

But except that issue which is not a real one... The construction of the shoes look so sturdy and well made! More or less like my bally loaffer.. I try them and they are so comfortable! This is amazing! A little bit small at first on the right shoes but wow very comfy shoes!

At the end, i found the color original and not common....

For the price (117$)i m going to keep them quietly!

Can't wait to get my strandmok!

I posted a picture of mine, next to my brown long branches and burgundy shell daltons, about a week ago, you should be able to find it and check it out. I swapped in some flat navy laces, and they look even better. To repeat, get the walnut ones, and you will NOT regret it.

 

Curveball with the seconds sale. Found the Chocolate Daltons and the Navy Cronmok at a great deal, Torn on the Cronmok, I just picked up my second Clark's DB to wear as a casual chukka beater. Might be overkill to get the Cronmok....

Samurai, those Brown Shell Strands are magnificent. I am super close to pulling the trigger on a MTO Strand. I just need to wait a little longer as I bought 5 more shoes in the last week and a half and I have 2 Aldens currently in production... :-/

Tif, those Cambridges do have a nice shine to them now. The trick was just a pidge of paste wax then?

Great pick up. You won't regret the Chocolate Dalton (or any dalton besides grey really). And for me that would be an easy choice, I would skip the cronmok, at just about any price, its just not a shoe that appeals to me. In my opinion, many other foot coverings I would rather put my funds towards, and lots of those are from AE. One tip i've learned with my shoe indulgences; just because something is on sale, and its temping, is not a good enough reason to buy it. If you don't love the make up (thats not to say someone cant love 5,10,50,100 makes ups), it will end up being money you wish you'd spent on something better/nicer/better fitting/ etc. I have a few AEs that seemed great at the time, but not, they hardly ever get worn. If I could do it all over again, of my current 9 AE models, I would keep 5, maybe 4. So if you're really on the fence about the cronmok, i'd skip it. Another sale will surely come, and if you are still yearning for it, pick it up then.

This is spot on advice. I think everyone goes through this phase where you buy quantity because of price. Then you realize later what you really like and change the value proposition for yourself.

I'd add to this that I've learned to become ruthless with fit. It has to fit well, or it's a no go.

I really enjoyed wearing them for the first time yesterday. I could tell right away how versatile they will be. Besides black pants, I think they will work with anything.
