Was 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?
Fifth Aves, Park Aves, and Strands are all balmoral captoes, so if I were you I would go for the McGregor to switch it up with a more versatile long wing blucher. In fact I own the black Park, brown Strand, and walnut Rogue, which puts me in a similar situation as you (also looking for oxblood/chili). Unfortunately the McGregor does not come in my EE size :-( so my only option for the LWB is the MacNeil which is a bit more pricey and fits a bit loose around the heal for me.
The low pricing on the McGregor is most likely due to it being a closeout style with the addition of the new 1943 last Leiden wingtip.
