The Strand or Rogue would be good choices.
I think the McGregor, Lexington, Bradley, or Rush Street would be good to check out too.
You've already got a walnut shoe, so maybe try the bourbon, chili, and oxblood colors next.

You can add the Clark Street to that list.

Maiden voyage for chili Rogue today. Unbelievably comfortable right out of the box!

The Rogue just seems to have way too much detail on the cap for me, I like the style but feel like they should have toned it down a bit. The perfing holes on the whole shoe seem to look too big but will probably need to see them in person.

 

 

They should have just brought back the old Lexington, looks like a stunning shoe.

I know what you mean. From certain angles, the toecap on the Rogue looks a bit like a colander.

Like this angle lol, easily the worst angle to photograph that shoe at.

The perfing on the rogue is deliberately over the top. Saw it a few times up close and yes the holes and pattern is huge. I like what they did, it's one of the few styles with originality but that still works. AE tries to expand into all these weird variations but I feel they got this one right. If the perfs were normal it would be too redundant with other options.

Maybe I am mistaken, but what other styles does AE offer that would make it redundant with smaller perfs? Or are you referring to other retailers.

 

I think it's great that AE takes some risk but they have taken some classic styles out of their everyday selection that I think a lot of people could get on board with. Alt Wein, PCT boot, regular cap toe boot, even a plain toe boot, cap toe blucher or shortwing blucher. Yet season after season we get bombarded with 6 new variations of the Strand and McAllister in casual leathers which imo makes hardly any sense. To be fair it looks like this year may be different and I am looking forward what they may have in store for Fall.

 

I was really excited to see more CXL offerings this past year with the Clark Street, Oak Street etc. My brother in law picked up the Clark St in natty and it is quite nice.

 

 

 

 

I just do see how AE does not have room for a dress shoe like the Fairgate anymore. I can picture it in Bob's Chili and Bourbon and burgundy cordovan already. Though the brown shell is just stunning, not my pic but Blaster bough this pair on Ebay and swapped the sole and added brass eyelets to them.

I like the Oak Street -- it looks like a good choice too.

Easily the best pic I have seen of them, side profile is awesome here but again the top down bugs me a bit, would love to try them out in person.

I think the Oak Street is an attractive shoe in natural chromexcel. I'm personally not much of a fan of the brown grain as to me it just looks wrinkly rather than grainy.

oh sorry, i meant the natural chromexcel. i didnt even look at the other color
