Why have 3 longwings?

oh well, they have years of successful operation and I've been buying their shoes for 2 years, so what do I know anyway.

I'm not sure they thing in terms of individual styles so much. If these two models are selling well, they'll probably keep them both in the lineup despite the overlap.

Second on the brown Cornwallis.  I love the look and fit--goes really well with suits.

Thanks! Was actually wearing those the other day

Black fifth avenue would work, or +1 on Cornwallis. Yorktown also worth a look. Personally, the Rutledge fills that gap for me, but depends on whether you can find on eBay.

For brown, are your universities actually chili? I don't recall seeing them in brown ... Lots of great options. For me, I'd consider a brown strand, a mora in some shade of brown, or perhaps a Carlyle (technically quite dressy but could casual down).

I took mine with a dainite sole out for the first time last week and almost did today since it is raining. Dainite or leather sole for yours?

Leather...

I had them on the other day, but then it started raining/snowing so went back in to put on the Long Branch...

If I saw snow sticking on the ground more than once every six years, I might consider investing in a pair of Long Branches. I love that boot, but I would almost never have a good reason to wear it. Perhaps I'll move up North so I can expand my collection.

Hi Gents - new cognac McT's for me today.  Absolutely love these, and at $157 on the recent sale I couldn't pass them up.  Quick question (and this may be a dumb question, if so, I apologize), but I noticed on the Shoebank website that the McT's can have either the double oak or double butyl sole, how can you tell the difference?

butyl has a darker finish and feels oily while double leather is lighter in color

 

 

Butyl

2. I need another versatile brown shoe. I have the University and brown, the Macallister in Walnut, a JM in Chilli. I'm not crazy about bourbon. Thx

1. I love my black FA's, but I agree with others that the black Cornwallis is a really nice suggestion. Black FA's are still pretty formal and the Cornwallis would probably get more wear overall. Though I don't think full brogues in black are taboo, I would never recommend them being your only black shoe. Perhaps as a second pair, or if you plan on getting a pair of black PA's in the future.

 

2. If you go with the black FA, you could go brown Cornwallis.

    If you go with black Cornwallis, you could go with brown Strand, McGregor, MacNeil, Yorktown, or Mora (the last two being my personal picks).

Thanks @Kahuna75 - these definitely have more of an orange/pink hue to the soles than my other AE's, so I'm guessing they are butyl.

Another idea are the Vernon's. simple shoe, lots of style. and prices are lower on the Vernon than the cornwallis.
