Looking at buying a Strand from the Shoebank, trying to decide between Oxblood,Chili and Bourbon, they're all available in my size, they'll be paired with Navy,grey,Charcoal and khaki , what color you think will be more versatile?
TIA.post #51769 of 7073711/11/14 at 8:41amQuote:
My opinion is that when looking for versatility, the darker the better.post #51770 of 7073711/11/14 at 8:45ampost #51771 of 7073711/11/14 at 9:24amQuote:
Thanks jubu; I was thinking of a welt something similar to these:
This is where I could use some help - is this a medium brown and natural or chili welt? I'm assuming that's Carmina on the left, too, and is a pretty accurate representation of the actual Bottle Green I saw. The shell Strand needs it's piping, judging from the pic I posted. Looked a bit rough around the edges without it.
Agreed - it is bad ass in person, guess that's why it's flying out of the door.Quote:
That green is incredible, without screaming "look at me". The Deep dark Brown really just appeared more saturated with color that the old brown, and a hint of red or cherry undertones...the true difference will show up as patina develops I would assume. It'll be more uniform that what I've seen from the old brown I'm sure. There was no natty leeds (had black on display) to compare it to, peppercorn, but that Dundee...purty. Excuse me, guys, but what other boots are included as part in the trunk show? I forgot to ask.post #51772 of 7073711/11/14 at 9:56amQuote:
I think there could be a place for all of them, but I'm a big fan of red in all its forms, so I would probably start with the first two.post #51773 of 7073711/11/14 at 9:57amQuote:Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Yup - click "Marketplace" at the top of the page and be sure to read the terms closely. Also, you can put a link to what you're selling in your signature.post #51774 of 7073711/11/14 at 11:10ampost #51775 of 7073711/11/14 at 1:15pmQuote:trying to decide between Oxblood,Chili and Bourbon . . . they'll be paired with Navy,grey,Charcoal and khaki
All should work, but depending upon how dark the charcoal pants, bourbon might be a distraction; chili and oxblood will work with everything other than dark brown. Between chili and oxblood, I prefer oxblood with most colors, particularly navy and charcoal; however, chili may be better if your khakis are more mushroom or British khaki, and is a bit more sedate with regular khakis. So oxblood for versatility; chili if your primarily color palette is a broad spectrum of khakis but you want occasional versatility for a few other colors. Bourbon, while ok with all colors you mention, is strongest for the entire tan/khaki/brown spectrum, while weakest with the other colors.post #51776 of 7073711/11/14 at 3:02pmpost #51777 of 7073711/11/14 at 3:09pm
For those of you with many MTO makeups under your belt, your input is requested.
How does this sound for my trunk show order:
Strand SMU:-Bottle Green Shell-Tone on tone stitching-No Medallion-Independence Lining-Regular Buff (or Chili) Welt-Wheeled Edge-Fudging-Medium Brown (for natural) or Light Brown (for Chili) Transparent Edging-Beaded Piping (is Bottle Green possible?)-Double Leather Reinbach Sole with Combination Heel
My first independent make up.post #51778 of 7073711/11/14 at 4:13pmRecent Shoebank score...got lucky while checking out the site late one night and was able to snag them before someone else.
Portland Boot in Bourbon w/ V-Tap Sole....does anyone have experience with the V-Tap Sole? How durable is it? Wondering if I should drop them off at B. Nelson to have toe taps installed.post #51779 of 7073711/11/14 at 4:15pmI have a question for you fellow AE fans. I would like to get a pair of AE's in dark brown suede, but I'm not sure which style to get. Any suggestions? I'm new to wearing suede shoes and don't know if I can wear the same pair with suits and denim despite some forum searching...
My current thoughts are either the fifth avenue, or strand, or a monk strap if they offer it.
Thanks for your help!post #51780 of 7073711/11/14 at 5:07pmQuote:Originally Posted by jubu

Great Score - I wish they would bring this back or do an ankle version of it...so many MTO's to do of it..
