Need some opinions, please.
My Father and Father in Law have always bought nothing but Bostonian, newer Florsheim, Cole Haan, etc. This year for Christmas, I want to buy them their first truly quality pair of shoes. Both of them wear suits 2-4 days a week and business casual (jacket and tie) the other work days.
So my question is this:
If you were going to be given your first and only pair of AEs, which model would you want them to be?
Based on their wardrobe requirements, I'd suggest the Fifth Avenue Oxford in dark brown burnish. Unless they have to wear black. In that case, choose the same shoe in black.
