Are Walnut McAllisters just not that popular?

I hate to be a naysayer, but that outfit is clownish and brands its wearer as a dandy fop.  It certainly matches, and probably fits within other style "rules," but come on -- that's not an outfit a man wears.  It screams, "I'm trying too hard to look pretty."

The socks and pants are a fine summer look, but the laces, IMHO, were a step too far. The laces might have worked with a darker shoe (AE navy Nuemoks) and different (non-matching) socks. All the elements combined result in a whole that is just too "matchy".

 

That his look might not have been in the best taste is one thing, but the whole masculinity question is ridiculous. Seriously, this is a forum that obsesses about men's clothes and this specific thread is dedicated to OCD levels of conversation about a specific brand of shoes; all of you have left the realm of normal 21st century masculine behavior and are solidly in the dandy-zone whether you realize it or not.

As you can see, they're a beautiful shade of brown shell.  Lucked out with a stamp too:

 

 

Comfortable as hell right out of the box.  And, got them for 30% off (they were slightly creased, but nothing that wouldn't have happened anyway after five minutes of wear).  Very, very happy camper here.

 

(One minor quibble:  They came with logo'ed shoe trees but the trees, while wood, are not cedar.  Cheapskates.)

 

In case anyone is wondering what this post is doing in the AE thread . . . these boots were in fact made by AE for Wolverine.

 

Looks good, buddy. Congrats!

 

What is Wingtip? Store? Member?

 

Thanks . . . http://wingtip.com/ (the store)

Very nice.  I have the RL Sandersons in brown (basically the Williams but branded for RL).  It has more burnishing on the toe (and the rest of the leather looks like just a slightly lighter shade of brown than the Williams) and no wheeling on the welt.  I love my Sandersons and you should love your Williams!  I only wish the RL shoe came in wider widths.  I got a 10D when I really need a 9.5E.  Oh well!

 

Enjoy the beautiful shoes.

I don't recall seeing E widths on the RL website but I have the Sanderson in E I got via the Shoebank. I enjoy it.

Regarding walnut McAlisters, they enjoy the same pros and cons of the Walnut Strands. Because the walnut Strands are almost always one of the featured shoes during the Nordstrum's sale each year, allowing folks to get "firsts" at about a third off, and the Mac in walnut almost never is, people drift toward the former and then have little reason to later add the latter. Just a theory but it applies in my own case.

Yeah that's the weird part, I've never seen E widths on the RL site, but I own a pair of Singleton seconds (the loafers) in a 9.5E that I also got from the Shoebank.

My heel fell off of my vintage AEs. Is it worth sending back to AE or just have a local cobbler tack it back on?CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), default quality

Also, can a black McTavish be used with a suit? I tried them on and thought they looked great, but wasn't sure. What say ye?

What kind of suit?

My gut says no, but there are always rare exceptions, and it depends on how you're putting together the rest of your ensemble.

Just a light gray Jos A Bank with black belt, blue shirt and salmon tie

post #44850 of 70737

I buy all my AEs used (because that is what I can afford). Is there any advantage to buying new? Is the show already molded to someone else's foot? They always seem fine to me, but am I missing out by not buying new?
