Yes, you are correct. They are Park Avenues. At least I got the color right this time. A while back, I posted that they were Cognac. At least I didn't call them Vodka, which would have been even more wrong.post #46384 of 707377/9/14 at 8:44am
I have the chili grain BB MacNeils and these are turning out to be one of my favorite shoes. I now regret not getting the walnut grain MacNeils when they were available. Im really liking the look of AE's grain leather and I was wondering what other grain leather is available from AE. I saw there were a couple of golf shoes on grain print leather. Does anyone know what the difference is of these grain print leather (eg. weybridge golf shoes) vs just grain leather (eg. redan golf shoes)? I was of the impression that all grain leathers were printed anyway.
Was also wondering if these were corrected grain leather or not. Thanks in advance for any info.post #46385 of 707377/9/14 at 10:40amQuote:Originally Posted by peppercorn78
Ha!! Well I agree (except that I'm 35 and not middle aged yet) that's why I was on the fence. I ended up wearing my sneakers anyway.
I don't think I'm going to keep these Randolph's. Too dressy for casual and too casual for dressy. Anyone interested? They're 10.5 3E.
That's pretty easy to infer from your nick, Pepperpost #46386 of 707377/9/14 at 10:59amQuote:
No shell with shorts, period, IMO. As for bluchers with shorts, suede and nubuck all the way; CXL, maybe.Quote:
I've never been able to figure out how to wear loafers. Aesthetically, tassels are OK, and a few days ago (Uncle) Mac showed off a pair of horsebits in the Alden thread that were the first pair of those that I ever liked. But, I really wouldn't know what to do with either style.post #46387 of 707377/9/14 at 12:00pm
So my shoes arrived but my shoe cleaning/shining/buffing stuff hasn't.
1) The leeds started cutting into the part right under my ankle immediately and rubbed off some skin. Will I need heel inserts or is this part of the breaking in process?
2) The strands feel tight and uncomfortable on my right foot but fine on my left. Specifically my little toe feels cramped even a couple hours after removing the shoes. Is this part of the breaking in process?
3) If the shoes are indeed too narrow but I continue to wear them, any long term problems that might arise on my right foot?
4) Is this something to be concerned about? The grain looks different and kind of grainy compared with the rest of the shoe. Is this cracking or just an imperfection?
5) Will these go away once I shine/buff my shoes?Marks (Click to show)post #46388 of 707377/9/14 at 1:26pmpost #46389 of 707377/9/14 at 2:21pmpost #46390 of 707377/9/14 at 2:32pmQuote:
I wear a 8.5E in the 5 last and a 9D in the Leeds. I sized down a width, but probably needed the half size in length. Also, my shell leeds are pretty chunky/blobby looking to me, especially when I'm actually wearing them.post #46391 of 707377/9/14 at 2:49pmQuote:
Embrace the blob! If you really can't abide it, there are other options out there.post #46392 of 707377/9/14 at 2:53pmQuote:
I am in between 8-8.5 on the brannock.
I wear an 8.5D in the Leeds and other 1 last shoes
an 8D or 8E work best in the 5 Lastpost #46393 of 707377/9/14 at 2:59pmpost #46394 of 707377/9/14 at 3:06pmpost #46395 of 707377/9/14 at 3:13pmQuote:
I really missed the boat with the Amok, I should have never passed on them. A suede chukka would be perfect for my wardrobe.
