Strands are suit shoes. Go for the Kenilworth. You won't regret it.

Morning gents.

Been debating over what color to go with when choosing a pair of McAllisters. I will only have two shoes in my work rotation, a pair of black Park Avenues and the McAllisters. I rarely wear suits at the current position I am in, mainly business casual. But I see myself having to wear suits once I finish with school and begin my career. I originally was planning to pick up the McAllisters in chili but then began to question the versatility. Then considered merlot because it's an appealing yet versatile color, but then began to wonder, would a lighter shoe be more useful? And then the walnut popped into my head. To top things off I figured a burnished brown would be a conservative way out. I know many frown upon wearing black shoes often but I actually enjoy it so between the PA and McAllisters they'll see about even usage. Any recommendations for which color would suit me best in the McAllister?

As much as I admire the collections I see on SF, I don't intend to have more than 3 pairs of dress shoes in my work rotation. Just something to consider when you're voicing your opinion.

I doubt that you'll stick with two shoes once you find a pair you like. I said the same thing and I am already at 5. 

 

Anyway, my advice would be merlot or chili if you will only have 2 pairs.Merlot works well with just about anything. 

The walnut is least versatile, so definitely rule that out.

Would merlot be a more versatile option compared to chili? And you're more than likely right but I'll have to resist the temptations to keep things minimal - in regards to the number of shoes I will have.

This might be the first time that anyone has posted a picture of their grey and orange Voyagers.........

Well if brown was of interest the chili color is more reddish brown while merlot is more dark red/purple. I think either are pretty versatile. You'll probably want to go and check out each color in person if possible.
I couldnt tell you which color I'd prefer
post #58148 of 70737
I remember when I thought I was done after 3 pairs. I'd prefer Strands over McAllisters for a second shoe. As for color, I think dark chili is the most versatile in my rotation.

Quick questions for the AE experts on SF.

At an estate sale yesterday I came across a really nice pair of shell Cambridge shortwings. Great shoes... but crappy iPhone photos smile.gif




Unfortunately they are too small for me so will post them on eBay and/or the buying - selling thread.

1. Does AE always use Horween shell? (Don't want to falsely advertise these if they don't.)
2. Are these are on the 5 last? What is "comb"?

Thanks in advance, AHS

Re: Cambridge

1) yes, Horween
2) yes, 5-65 last
3) combo = combination heel (leather and rubber)

Brave man posting those around here. When did they come in gray? I liked the blue version I saw in an AE store and was planning on picking up a pair on clearance. Alas, I got the Baton Rouge (in blue) for $97.

Neumok owners, do you feel they run the same as other shoes on the 5 last? Im thinking sine they are unlined I may have to size down. If anyone can help Id appreciate it.

Go online, buy them, and thank yourself later. Return them endlessly until you get the pair that meets your specifications.

 

You only live once brother.

Would the McAllisters in burnished chili be suitable to match with a navy or royal blue suit? What about the McAllisters in merlot?
