So I order a pair of loafers via a 3rd party retailer and shipped directly from AE.. Turns out they send me a belt instead LOL.

 

How do returns work for shoes sent directly from AE? Do they get sent back to the retailer and retailer send them back to AE?

The Manistee in brown is a good matching belt for a brown brogue shoe, even though it's not pebble grain.

I looked at those - the color is about right but I'm not a fan of the broguing.  I'm not hung up on pebble, but the tone of these shoes is pretty dark.  This pic is close, except the red tones are mainly the camera and the ones I wound up with don't show quite this much grain...

McAllister is my favorite shoe.    IMO, wingtips are more versatile than half-brogue captoes.  

I would vote for McAllister too. Get Strand Walnut next after that

I do wear my chilli bleecker st with suit sometimes. But I almost always wear suits casually as in without tie, with check shirts etc. I don't think they feel weird with suit , they still look sleek, still are perf cap toe!

I know about the recommendation to wear bals with suits etc. etc. but I rarely feel like doing that..

3.5 more weeks until my dundee 2.0s in snuff seude arrive... i love how i got my snuff suede wide basic belt today after only a 3 day wait, but it is making the overall wait for the boots that much tougher.  the snuff color is beautiful and the suede feels so premium :) 

 

 

should i use the AE waterproofing spray on the nap side of the belt??

I wear my Bleeckers all the time with a suit minus the tie. The versatility allows me to wear them with any outfit while traveling for work.

I want these.

I only recently obtained these and I was amazed with the fit and comfort. It's always a big bonus to feel good while trying to look good. They are unlike anything I have and I could not be happier.

Had a pair of the Fairfax in Chili a few years ago, but unfortunately I bought it in an incorrect size (10D rather than a 9E or 9.5E) and realized they were a poor fit and had to sell them.  Since then, I've been keeping an eye on ebay for any that might pop up in my size.

Yes, they work well with a suit imho

Thank you for your honest opinion!

I could not choose, so I ordered both!! Arggh!!

I can't recall their warmth in the cold, but the LB got too warm in the 60 degree weather. As for there being a role for both boots, I definitely think so. The LB pulls flannel/cord/outdoor duty and Dalton does dress jeans and suit duty. Also, the LB walk very softly and quietly. They feel like sneakers and make me want to run.

If 60 gets warm how's say 20 for the LB? That would increase the time I could wear it considerably until I have to use my real winter boots (those aren't pretty. Basically service boots, approved for law enforcement - Danner Recon with 200g of Thinsulate), being in Montreal.

I second the last two sentences in Al's post.  I just got my first pair of LBs and can honestly say they're the most comfortable boots right out of the box I've ever owned.

Morning guys. Happy Walnut Wednesday! The Jeffersons, the shoe that started my AE collection a year ago, maybe my most comfortable 'dress' shoe and my newly acquired walnut brief case. I've always thought the independence walnut was a different hue than the calf.
