Another reason why buying shoes on this last without trying them on in-person is a bad idea.

Just want to say, I'm very impressed with the durability of my AE Fifth Aves. I've been wearing them consistently in less than ideal weather, and after a good polish, they're as good as new (I'm relatively new to AEs in general).

Some quick advice needed though: I have a pair in chili; can they be combined with a charcoal or navy suit? Or better to wear them with less formal wares (i.e. sport coats)?

Thanks!

Thanks!  The burgundy shell Daltons are one of my favorites.  If you buy a pair, I hope you have better luck than I did with the quality.  My first pair had to go back and I had to wait over a month to get replacements.  But don't take that as discouragement.  Far from it, they are great, as you know (I think you have the walnut shell, correct?).

I wear my chili AE's with navy and charcoal all the time and it looks great. The Fifth Avenue is a great shoe for suits or sport coats.

I'm not a fan of that look, but it is acceptable to wear your chili 5th Avenues with navy and charcoal suits.  I'm more of a dark brown with navy and black with charcoal kind of guy, though.

hello everybody! first post on the forum,

 

just starting to build up a nice wardrobe especially shoes, heres my first 2 pairs of allen edmonds the mcallisters i believe are quite old they have the ostendo heel in them but i think the park avenues are quite recent. Have only just started my first big job after finishing university so its second hand allen edmonds at the moment plus live in Australia so unfortunately cant just wander into a store here to get some, park avenues arrived yesterday loving them leather flares out a bit around the mouth though and im in desperate need of shoe trees for the pair of them.... i reckon next will be walnut daltons and then hopefully a brand new pair!
