Then with all the pics I figured I'd finally try them. Tried black single oak, smu double oak, and smu stone suede. They're not bad, but they all looked very plain in comparison to all the wings & medallions, I just couldn't get into them. They were like a dressy badlands/black hills. Plus they have that 3 eye thomastown thing going on, so if they're loose at all to start the ankle bowing could be significant. So don't get jealous of chromed out Mario the music man.post #70069 of 707371/29/16 at 5:43amQuote:
Has anyone found an easy way to get the lacquer off? Does it come off with an application of cleaner/conditioner? I have a pair of the BB fifth ave seconds that have it. Not a fan.post #70070 of 707371/29/16 at 5:57ampost #70071 of 707371/29/16 at 6:04amQuote:
Saphir Renomat should do the job, although it depends whether you've polished the shoes straight outta the box... Renomat is a wax stripper but also would strip the factory finish off of the shoes ;)

It's probably the most sober, serious brown shoe you could buy. I would only wear with creases wool trousers, if not a suit.post #70074 of 707371/29/16 at 6:12amQuote:
I have them in bourbon and love the color with jeans.post #70075 of 707371/29/16 at 6:13amQuote:
Get something with a little more personality. At least go for the Fifth Avenue.
That said, some folks will say that balmorals are too dressy for chinos and a jacket. Look for a blucher, perhaps the Yorktown, Lasalle, or Leiden.post #70076 of 707371/29/16 at 6:16am
cross posted this in the Alden thread as I like to share my dopey ways...
Being fairly recent to back wearing denim...and even when I did 20 years ago, was never was a button fly guy...what I find amazing is that I can button 5 buttons then still reach three times for the zipper before realizing I just buttoned the fly...Ieven after not finding the zipper have looked down to see how am I missing it...only to discover what a true idiot I am...just thought I would share.post #70077 of 707371/29/16 at 6:42amQuote:Originally Posted by alexnb
Just got the new suede Strandmok 2.0 in "saddle" suede in and wanted to share the pictures. I was very excited about this shoe, because I've been looking for an oxford in suede that comes in narrow, and there finally is one.
The shoe is unlined, so it is very light (a little too light if you ask me... I would prefer a lined shoe). Additionally, the white sole definitely gives it a more casual look. I will probably explore changing out the sole.
Ultimately, I have to send them back because the "cap" on the right shoe isn't sewn on straight... but I am simply going to exchange them, because I think they are great shoes for wear with jeans.
Those are really nice looking. I've been looking for something to take some of the load off my Rush Streets, and this is the best I've seen in casual. Do you think the unlined is heavy enough for winter wear?post #70078 of 707371/29/16 at 6:44amQuote:Quote:
Hmm, alright thanks guys. I would go for a blucher over these, but I found them in my size for 100 with what looks like barely one wear on them, so I'm just deciding if I can actually wear them without looking overdressedpost #70079 of 707371/29/16 at 7:02amWas thinking of picking up a Lexington or McGregor from the seconds sale, any opinions? Looking for a chili or oxblood, and already own black Fifth Avenue, brown Park Avenue (or vice versa, I always get the names mixed up) and walnut Strands.
And any idea why the McGregor seconds are priced so low? Is it because the firsts have dropped to $199?post #70080 of 707371/29/16 at 7:10am
