Laid back? Brown Strandmoks, Rush streets, or something in Oxblood. Strands are good looking, Oxblood or Bourbon. I do find a lighter welt to be awesome with denim and more casual. Also love all things suede

Kenilworth is too plain, wouldn't be my choice if wearing denim and casual khakis. I too have a relaxed dress code and it gives you a lot of options to have fun with shoes


Lots of boots also work. Gobi being on my list for casual.

Thanks.  I mentally read that first sentence in Agent Cooper's voice.  :)

That's grand theft right there.  Mine were $299 seconds and I was over the moon when I kopped them.  $340 for firsts is practically unheard of.  Well done - they will become old friends in no time.

I have one pair that's normal and another with a natural welt.

 

I like the way you think.  :nodding:

I believe those are Stewarts.

Did you swap those laces out?  They look great!

Kenilworth, no question. It's the only shoe that can do double duty with ease. The strand is too formal for jeans, and the Neumok is too casual for slacks. Kennies can do both.

I've seen the neumoks with slacks and think they work decent.

If I pick the kenilworth do you suggest the walnuts or bourbons?

Thx

Sounds like the Long Wing Blucher is your ticket.  I think the MacNeil would work well with what you are describing...

The oxford/balmoral doesn't make much sense to me as a casual shoe, even if you use casual colors, welts, and materials.  The blucher makes more sense.

Pepper's 100% correct. Those are Stewarts. Part of AEs rough collection.

Stock laces for the Elgin. It's the same lace they use on the rush streets I believe.

Is it your first pair of good shoes? Then I would agree that it should be the Kenilworth. I have them in brown and they are the most versatile out of my modest (five) collection by a mile. Although I don't own one, the blucher longwing suggestion is also probably a good one.

I think it's far too casual for slacks (neumok). Unlined distressed cowhide with reverse welt and contrast stitching. As casual as it can possibly get (while still being a balmoral).

The Kenilworth is perfect for what you need. That or a longwing blucher like the McGregor or MacNeil. The bourbon (if you can find a good pair), being slightly darker than walnut, will be a little more versatile, though I love it in walnut.

How formal is the Kenilworth in brown compared to captoes? I was taught black captoes are a must for formal events and never wrong with a suit.

I'd like my walnut strands to be a little darker. Would a shine with a darker color ruin them or add a little color. Was thinking bourbon or brown. How dark would it be on walnut?

I darkened mine with regular polish with dark brown Kiwi (pic w/flash)
