Yes i did. That is also precisely why i had them added. It was to eliminate the vamp from "crumpling" around the laces.

Happy Friday, gents! My @parkman24 special today. Man are these comfy!

In terms of fit, I'm 9D (perfect 5-last would probably be a 9.25 and between a D & E) for almost all AEs. My Daltons in 9D should probably be 9E and these 9E LBs should probably be 9D - but I'm not complaining, especially for the deals I've gotten. And... that justifies buying more socks in different weights.

Wear them in good health! I'm glad you swapped the original laces for the red ones! They look great :slayer:

I think I have as much fun shopping for socks for specific boots, shoes as I do shopping for boots

For boot socks I find that STP is a great place to get Smartwool or Icebreaker. 

 

I like the red laces with walnut as well... I put the red laces from my Long Branches on a tan Horween pair by Woolrich and it really makes the boot.

Long time lurker (aka shoe-drooler), but I'm at a loss for what I should procure next. I'm a concierge tech for SF financial district execs but not a banker, and while appropriately dressed I'm rarely suited up. Since the past few years haven't been too wet I've been able to shuffle around rainy days without destroying my leather soles. However this year is much different and I'm in need of a rainy day option.

 

AEs I currently own:

Black Cliftons

Brown Jeffersons

Walnut McCallisters

Brown LongBranches

 

 

So with the rainy day sole parameter, and was thinking either something w/dainte sole or picking a BB version of a classic (since they have the v-tread (right?).

 

Current sale has options that fill out the color wheel, but I'd like views on what [other] single pair fits both a varietal and a weather-based need:

Dk Chili McGregor w/dainte

Dk Chili Lexington w/dainte

Black BB Strand

 

much appreciated, gents!

Gentlemen, this has been an awesome thread, but it's time to start a new Allen Edmond's thread.  This thread has gotten much too heavy for the forum.  From hereon in, I'll be closing and starting these megathreads annually, so that we get into a good schedule, rather than waiting until the thread becomes really heavy to load, before springing this on you guys.  

 

There are a couple of ways to do this - we can start completely fresh, with a respected member here starting the new thread, maybe with a short intro and FAQ on the OP, and with the last post on the old thread linking to the new thread, or we can take the last 50 posts or so and make a new thread that way.  Again, the last post on the old thread would link to this new one, for anyond who hasn't gotten the news.

 

Opinions?  I'd like to do this early next week.

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

I'm sick of the same old shell Kenilworth shots every single time - I nominate either you or watchidiot (the real jedi masters).

Maybe the others will have a completely different opinion, but I wouldn't go with any of those for a rainy day option.  Usually when it rains, my go-to is the Aberdeen.  I've also worn the Gobi and Black Hills in the rain.  I'd go with something not in smooth dressy calf, maybe grain leather or CXL, and a mini-lug over danite.  No way I'd want to ruin a BB strand like that.

Any of these suggestions would work for me.  It's whoever the community decides.

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

I have two pairs of shoes on the 65 last (Strand and Park Ave.) and one pair on the 201 last (Bartlett). FWIW, I've noticed that the Bartlett on the 201 is noticeably snugger in the arch area (snug from side-to-side, not from top to bottom) than my 65 last pairs. Otherwise, they feel pretty similar.

I second the nominations of Peppercorn78, Watchidiot and JSO1. Are there further nominations? If not, I move nomination close and discussion before a vote.

I think they'd look great with spring/summer odd jackets. IMO, the downside is keeping them clean. I used to own a pair of shoes with canvas panels and I had to pay something like $45 to get them shampooed by my cobbler. It was a casual pair so I tried limiting that service to once or twice a year. The Carlyle is a little dressier and I would be concerned about 'total cost of ownership.'

@peppercorn78 @watchidiot and @JSO1 as your new thread starters.

 

What say you, Allen Edmonds community?
