Awesome! I've yet to take mine out for a spin, but they fit awesomely during my test wear around the house.

Tell me about your pants, though. I definitely need something nicer to pair with Strands, and those look very interesting.

Is it a pipedream to ever get Mcallisters (or anything) in cappuccino shell again?

Afraid so. Both Horween and AE had issues with color variance. Even wider than usual, if you can believe.

The closest colors out there are Carmina's cognac (readily available) and Alden Revello (good luck getting some of that).

Picked up these truffle cordovan Dundee's from the ShoeBank during the RA sale, $297.  These are my first shell.  Is the creasing acceptable?  There is no wear on the soles.  From what I've read this is normal with future wear anyways.  I've ordered some of their cordovan cream.

I think a brown LWB is generally thought of as a sold choice for many OJ/OT combos. I sure enjoy mine. What is your concern about going dark brown and why would an FA - a punch cap Oxford - in the same color work better for you? Because it is a great suit shoe?

I vacillated on picking up shell Dundee's during the RA sale, then my size was gone.  So much for living my life without regrets.  Maybe I'll get redemption next Fall.

If those are 10.5E then those creases are absolutely unacceptable and you would do well to ditch them quickly to avoid needless embarrassment.

However, I would ease your burden as a personal favor.😎

I am in love with the Allen Edmonds Hardwick mode. Unfortunately, there is a real dearth of information about them online. I want to know more about the shoe (e.g. care, leather, etc.) and to buy more of them, but Google gives me close to nothing. Does anyone have info? Please tell me everything you know about this show and please, please, please tell me where I can buy it. Thank you!

Got to wear my Fifth Street balmoral boots tonight. I don't get to wear suits enough so I started cheating and wearing these with coat and tie.



I wish AE would do more with balmoral boots. Perhaps something in oxblood, dark chili or even suede.

If these are truly truffle cordovan I would not use the AE brown cordovan cream. It will cover up the beauty of the truffle shell color. I recommend saphir neutral cordovan cream as needed.
