^^^Nice!  I think bourbon/walnut go great with gray/charcoal.  I don't quite understand how people would disagree with that.

I would definitely rock them with grey. Looks great.

Actually, my Strands are a EEE width, and I got them from Nordstrom (in store, not online). They stock widths, but only for a very limited stock of shoes. Probably only shoes that are pretty popular and probably at the bigger stores, like the one in Chicago on Michigan Avenue, which is where I bought mine.

Bourbon and walnut go best with greys IMO. I think the Navy trousers and walnut/bourbon sparks some debate. In fact, I just found out a few months ago that the navy dress trousers are not preferred on SF by some members! Doesn't stop me from wearing them though,

Nobody likes anything on SF.

Broke out the Gobi's snuff today and totally in love...The last is the 809 which seem fit wise close to the 73 last(Shaker Heights) in that I can take a 13D in this as opposed to my regular 13E....My right foot is the smaller and their is a tiny bit of heel slip but I am wearing dress socks today for the break in ...most likely these will be worn with medium weight socks going forward. My right foot fits like the Shaker in that it seems like this shoe was made specific for my foot. Not sure why these were seconds but happy they were.

 

Not mentioned in the description of the shoe is the padded footbed which is spectacular. Being on sale for $221 and with 4 different welt sole combos this may be a no brainer to pay the $80 for a leather change. Easily could see these looking stellar in brown or natural CXL, Oxblood, Olive Suede, or even a walnut pebble grain would look pretty funky.

More than any other shoe, I wish these were on a last that could be built up in an AA width... because I really want a pair. Yours look fantastic; nice pickup!

Looking nice those Gobi's! I just personally wish they came out with a chukka suede with a more square toe.

Perhaps you could try going down a 1/2 size or full size and going with a B width...I think the toebox has enough room...

What do you guys think of the olive neumoks?

Looks good to me!

Why wouldn't bourbon work with grey....? I thought grey goes with just about anything.

Simple, because this forum is full of "traditionalist" and whoever breaks the "rules" are shunned. Just check the WIWT thread smile.gif

Since I wasn't able to unload these before the Trunk Show I figured I may as well wear them around the office today. I figure the wingtip design, flat laces and light color of Truffle allow these to be chino ok. They are also my most hydrated and easy to maintain cordovan from AE. Maybe something to do with the fact they didn't have polish in this color to cake all over them before shipping them out...
