Everyone who wears 8.5D needs to buy things so I don't. Really don't need Shaker Heights or another pair of Bleecker...

Y'all have your fun -- shoe bank offerings in 14AA are still the same fifteen pair that've been up for months. musicboohoo[1].gif

Seriously, though, that's a good thing; Fedex says my dainite black Carylyes show up tomorrow and some MTO suede Badlands should be hitting in the next month or so. I need no further temptation.

I have recently made a pretty drastic commitment to narrowing down my shoe collection, but there is a lot of excellent options in the bank right now...

Ten minutes after I posted that, Allison called to get my CC info for those Badlands. They ship today.

SERENDIPITY!

Finally some indication that the order didn't just disappear. My inquiries have gone mostly unanswered. If they ship from WI, I usually get them next day... however, I won't see them until TUESDAY (shipping to my office - which is closed on weekend and Monday holiday)... I need to call Allison for tracking to reroute to a holding facility. They would ship these on Friday the 13th...Argh. Oh well, I guess the shell Dundees waiting for me down the street can keep me busy until I can get my hands on them. Really curious to see how the Badlands came out, though. Time for bitter chocolate suede belt with contrast stitching acquisition.:smarmy:

Snagging a pair of Snuff Gobis! This and a new loafer or boat shoe and I should be set for summer.

So awesome. If those are from the source I suspect, I wanted them so badly but was pretty sure that they had zero chance of fitting. Those and the natural shell Alden PTB are simply stunning shoes.

Brown Shell Strands today for me.

Can Shoebank seconds be shipped back to any Allen Edmonds Retail store or does it have to be an outlet store?

I see a closeout bitter choco belt in my size in the shoebank, but I also see this guy for just $25 (that blinding stitching will darken a bit I'm sure). Not sure if I want to spend nearly twice that on an Allen Edmonds second for a belt that pairs with only one shoe...

I have had some seconds shipped to my Allen Edmonds retail store before.

The reason the McGregor is more dressy is for exactly the reasons that the McTavish is less dressy.  I don't own the McGregor, but based on the pics on the AE website, it looks like they have a smooth, polished, uniform leather and a regular goodyear welt.  They also have a single oak sole which to me looks a bit sleeker than a double oak (like the McTavish) sole which looks more dressy.

Do you think the Mc Tavish is more dressy than the Neumok? Would the Neumok work for the same business casual attire?

While I was able to resist the Bleecker or Shaker at $222, I was unable to resist the Rush Street in Olive at $157. For first quality shoes that is absolutely bonkers. Just have to find a good olive belt in my size to go with it. It'll be a nice spring shoe with jeans.

I have made the same commitment and promptly have ignored it. Such is life.

Gorgeous - I am thankful that I have been able to resist the urge to dive into shell deeper than the Brown Shell Strands I got for 40% off...

Speak of the devil - your Strands are looking great, Chris. The weather needs to improve up here so I can start wearing mine more often. The variation in the panels is great on yours, especially the medallions being a touch lighter than the vamps - looks great.

 

Oh, and the watch isn't half bad either (even though this isn't the right thread to say such things).

McTavish is more dressy than the Neumok if only by virtue of the leather - the distressed leather and unlined construction of the Neumok make it a very casual shoe. The McTavish isn't really a dressy shoe though, with its chunky double sole and dublin or wax leather. You might be able to pull off the McTavish for some business casual (the casual end of the business casual spectrum, perhaps), but I doubt the Neumok would ever be appropriate.

I think the Mctavish is dressier than the neumok, because of the distressed look of the neumok. That being said I wear my neumoks on casual days with courds. I love my neumoks and would have gotten some cognac mctavish, but the mctavish fits much different than the other 5 lasted shoes I have.
