post #42826 of 70737

Looking to purchase my first pair of AEs and want to take advantage of the current sale. I don't think I'm ready for wingtips so I'm considering the Lexington Captoe. For suits I wear the basics: Solid Navy, Charcoal, Dark Grey Pinstripe and Navy Pinstripe. My question is which color Lexington do you think works best? I already have a pair of Black Oxfords.Im leaning towards Brown Burnished Calf but would like to hear what the experts think.

For use with suits, I would say the brown burnished. I think the bourbon may be too light. But for suits, I think I'd stick with a Balmoral. I know that wasn't your question...just an aside.

What about bourbon?

Brown burnished should look similar to the shoes that are being worn:

Your babies are Tyrion, Cersei and Jaime?  :lol:

 

What are those square toes on the left and why are you still hanging on to them?

Unexpectedly, it's a Bayfields and cords kind of day in southern Louisiana.

Ugg..I wasn't even considering that they were Bluchers. Doesn't look like they have any non wingtip Balmorals on sale.

I laughed outloud! Though I have to say square toe in slip on does not bother me...then again I have no style...

If you're a D width, you could go with these or these from Brooks Brothers' current sale.

How do the BB branded shoes compare to the regular ones?

I believe just the branding. Should be identical.

Poron insole (so slightly less volume until the foam compresses to fit your feet), rubber tap sole (which would be a $50 upcharge on AE's website). A few forum posts here and AAAC mention that they're built on the same last. Also that nifty combination heel.

Any idea if they qualify for AE recrafting? Im pretty hard on shoes.
