I wish the Freiburg was more of a regular boot shape. I like the general idea of the shoe, but its shaped too much like a chukka boot.

I am guessing that was the idea...personally I wish they took that russet leather and made the Oddenwald on the B34 with a captoe..would have been cool

Yeah... That sounds like it would be a pretty handsome makeup

These are bourbon. I don't care to duplicate the same model in different colors. I prefer to diversify. This is the only shoe I would like in several different colors, including oxblood.

The toes are way too dark on these. I've since toned them down. Just the tips are darkened.

Bourbon is a great color. It's the color I seen in person while passing a local menswear store on my way to work.

I taught music production at a university a few years back. I was told a few times by my boss that I was over dressing for our department. I think she wanted to appear more laid back and hip than the performance department. (They didn't get along.) One faculty member always wore shorts (all year round) and crazy shirts, one always wore a knit shirt and trousers, and my boss typically dressed like she was about to do yard work. I won't deny that this kind of stuff is typical for engineers and songwriters who worked freelance to wear. However, I just ignored her and wore wool trousers and a tie anyway. Just because I was teaching a bunch of kids who came to class in sweatpants, doesn't mean I should have ignored the fact that I was in an academic setting shaping lives. But I share all that just to say, I get it. I went out on the road with a band for a while after that and had to buy some denim anyway. However, I never figured it out myself, and I went back to slacks and chinos as soon as I got off the road. I own one pair of jeans now, and I can't remember the last time I wore them. It's been at least since last December, but I think more like August.

All are good choices. The Carlyle and Strand are on different lasts (8 v. 5) so pick the one that offers the best fit. The Carlyle will work with dress pants. Another alternative: given that you mentioned the Fifth Avenue, which is available in dark chili, rather than oxblood: the Nathan, which is the AE for JosABank version of the Fifth Avenue on the 8 last is available in burgundy (and it is definitely burgundy, although it appears to be black on the JosBank.com website).

I'd like to know what last these are on, as well. The 2 last, perhaps? Would be very interested in a walnut pair.

@Kahuna75 Damn...im now almost certain the overlord won't work for me at all. And probably not the Freiburg either. Hmm...

@cc808314 You're talking about that player shoe lookalike? I'm 99% sure it is not the 2 last - I don't think they'll ever make anything on that again. I'd take a shot in the dark and say the 108 like the "player 2.0" but it would be a total guess.

Dusted off my McTavish and tried them on with standard dress socks - absolutely no-go.  With medium weight socks even I feel like I could have accommodated a B width, the D is already a lot.  :angry:

Now that they have arrived in a 10.5e, I'd say that the 201 is basically the 511 last with an elongated toe. Going shorter in length then your normal size would not be advised as I put it against a Dalton and the only thing different is the toe length.

What size did you get the Normandy in? Assuming you dropped a full size from measured for it that might work with the overlords.
