Understood. LOL! I used to have so much black, and navy and gray—but now I've sooooooo much camel, and tan, and British Tan, burgundy, dark brown, espresso, rust, snuff, olives and all manner of tweeds...that I can afford to incorporate some black like this. Have an amazing Flannel Bay Napoli black velvet blazer I intend to rock with a pale gray merino turtleneck and these shoes. AND a great black vintage lapeled waistcoat I can work these with.

 

But then...I live in NYC where black is de riguer for so many of us, which moves me to drop things like this into the wardrobe:

 

 

 

L to R—Tan Zegna Herringbone, Blue René Lezard Herringbone, and Green/Wheat Vintage Cricketeer Herringbone wool sportcoats. I rock the AE Espresso Jodox/Bourbon Bleecker Streets with the Zegna, the Blue Suede Stewarts/Merlot Franciscans/Burgundy Scottsdales with the Lezard, and the Snuff Schautals/Snuff Gobis/Nutmeg Big Surs, and Walnut Hollywood Web Gems with the Green Cricketeer.

 

I do mix a LOT of color shoes in, but I couldn't pass up those damn Shakers. Such an awesome style—discontinued too.

@misterellington congrats! The black shaker is a rare and extra boss find. It's pretty awesome in a SWD sort of way. I think only a very few of them were made in black, as it wasn't an official catalog color.

@coolarrow didn't you used to do Townley Tuesday?

Bought a new pair of Arezzos during the RDA sale. Found this little hole on the side.debating whether I should return it based on just this defect.

One other thing, on the inside of the right shoe, my big toe is rubbing against the stitching which is unconfortable. Oddly, the left shoe is fine. Anyone experience this before?

@misterellington I would totally rock those with some jeans. I am not the biggest fan of black but I do own a pair of black Loake chukkas that I sport with jeans frequently. I am sure those shaker heights would totally work with some denim.

Edit: plus for that price, make em your winter boots and you wont care if they take that beating

That's what got me with these—it absolutely wasn't an official color, albeit such a wonderful, basic choice. When I strolled down the aisle (in fact—the WRONG aisle, so I felt just a LITTLE bit bad for whoever I'm assuming probably hid these to nab later) and saw them, I kind of stopped, cocked my head for a second and was confused.

 

I thought for a few seconds as I walked up on 'em, “Ha! Dig these Shaker Heights copies somebody whipped up and hmmm...they did a good job on these knockoffs, right down to the V-Tap sole and HOLYSH*TAESHAKERSINBLACKFOR$129.00WTF'INGF?” 

 

As I stood on line to pay, a woman in front of me looked back, double-taker and then struck up a conversation about the shoes which led to a discussion of “what makes a quality shoe”. Of course, she asked if there were any more in her husband's size—which there weren't, but I DID see a pair of Chili Bleecker Streets in her husband's size that had a nick on the heel stack. $139.00. She bolted to get 'em. LOL.

The Black shakers rock and go with plenty of stuff - from grey or olive cords/chinos/tweed to some jeans - I am a fan! though I think I wore these with blue cords...lol

Just pulled the trigger on my first pair bought from eBay.

 

Shell MacDaddy's for $100 shipped. 

 

I'm usually a 9EEE, but for $100 I'll gamble on these fitting.
