@Zzen Here you go...Portland boot in the wild:

I am trying to add a boot to the repertoire, never worn one before.

And a shot of the Westchesters today for the sake of contributing to the thread.

They don't fit quite right, and might be up for sale soon if anyone is interested in a 9.5D Burgundy shell.

Those are 511 last. From my research anyways.

Oh great! Thanks, I wasn't aware. Is there any difference in sizing?

Wow, those are three very nice looking collections! Somehow I missed the family photo event was going on today...

Brown Shell Strands today for me.

@CMT1 , while those Shell Strands are quite stunning and make me want a pair, you have a fantastic ensemble all around in those photos. From the sock pattern that lightens it up a little, to the color & texture of those pants, and even the blue stripe at the very end of your shirt sleeve are all interesting details to me.  I know this is the shoe pr0n thread, but can you please share any info about the rest of your outfit?

 

I think I might be one or two pairs away from being finished shoe shopping for now (sacrilege, I know!). That was the easy part.  The rest is going to be much harder.

ID's on the loafers, please?  I'm still thinking of what might be better than my Randolphs. Is one of them green from the trunk show?

Sir - the loafers in the front are the cahill - walnut calf with leather soles.  I believe they have been discontinued.  The loafers in  the back are the addison - cxl i believe with dainite soles.  A steal from amazon for $100 if I'm not mistaken.  Should still be in production.  The green loafers are the patriots - green shell from the trunk show.

Edit - i decided to go with the patriot because the are a penny loafer.  The randolphs are also a fantastic loafer but they are a full strap loafer.  I wanted something that could be business casual and that could also be dressed down.  In my head a full strap would strictly be business casual and up.  Some people might think differently.

Love that you have two walnut Macneils with different edge trimming. Very nice shell collection.

Thank you. You are a gentleman and a scholar. I'm surprised the ones in the back row are Addisons. I always see them at the front of the alphabet when I hit up the shoebank, but yours look darker than the pics on the AE websites. It just says "tan." I prefer how yours look in that photo.

P.S. Still waiting on your trunk shoe Sheltons?

I really appreciate the good press from you and halfnhalfnhalf, and I'm really sad to disappoint here - It's an old, simple outfit that I've worn countless times over the years and there's nothing haute about the components.

The shirt is a Polo button-down I purchased last year with my bourbon Strands:



The navy blue sweater is an old, Old Navy piece that I've had for a very long time and the pants are 10+ year old Polo dress pants that have stood the test of time very well.




Finally, the socks were purchased this year at Eddie Bauer and I really liked the way tied everything together, kind of like Dude's rug.

Again, I wish I could say there was anything special about the outfit save for the shoes, but the pants and sweater have been in rotation for years to the point where they're just part of a default personal outfit.

The shoes have definitely upgraded the show, though, way above the old Cole Haans or Eccos that used to anchor it. smile.gif

Blue Neumoks for me today. These have really broken in nicely and are easily comfortable enough to wear without socks.




The shoe trees have their work cut out for them tonight.

Anyone want to trade a 11.5 EEE shell Westchester?  BNIB that I'll trade for something in 12 EEE.  I promise this is the only time I'll post this.

No problem. And yes I am still waiting on the sheltons as well as dundees and Grayson's. I am looking forward to receiving the sheltons the most. I had been looking for a saddle for a while and when the opportunity came to make it up in shell it was perfect timing for me. I have an AE package due to be delivered tomorrow so fingers crossed. Its possible it's my eagle county gmto but we'll see.
