post #15046 of 49952

Gentlemen

 

I plan to purchase a pair for my birthday very soon. Any recommendations as to where I should get them? I want to get the best price possible, without having to sacrifice much. I'm interested in some strands in walnut calf.

If you are interested in Walnut Strands, call Earl or Kyle at the AE outlet in Leeds, AL.  Phone number is 205-699-6566, they have the Brooks Brothers version on sale right now for $129.00

I was there yesterday and they said they had just ordered 35 more pair of sales samples.

Anyone have any experience with AE's boat shoe offerings? I like the looks of the Harbour in brown, though I know their cemented and made in the Dominican Republic. Would y'all skip AE for boat shoes and just stick with something like Sperry's?

If you wear these shoes to work, what field do you work in that its okay to have colored laces? Most of the guys I know in accounting/finance/consulting/law/medicine dont ever wear colored laces and have mainly black shoes. maybe because they cant dress or maybe because thats the office norm. Someone enlighten me please.

Will it look like I'm trying too hard if I put colored laces on my shoes when I go out casually? (I'm 22)

Doctors don't wear colored laces. True. But I am a doctor and I DO wear colored laces!

I think medicine may be different from those other occupations listed. It is appropriate in medicine.

Nothing in my size, unfortunately...

Have some confidence and wear colored laces. They're fun and they show some individuality in an office full of clones.

I am in finance and I wear colored laces.  Here are some combo's i have done

 

Bourbon Strands with orange laces, slim fitting Hugo navy pants with a very faint lighter blue plaid, a white and blue mini-box printed shirt, and a blue tie that had an orange sunflower-esque pattern very similar to this tie, but the blue was much darker.

 

Compliments all day long, and I really like the way the outfit was put together.  Certain colored laces go with certain shoes.  I wore lime green laces on a pair of black cap toes because of the shirt that I had on, and it looked fine, but not as good as the bourbon/walnut orange combo.  My bourbon strands are currently laced with navy laces.

 

I think laces can be as subtle or as bright as you want, just make sure it works with the outfit.  One color I can promise I will never wear to work, is red laces.  Other than that, lighter blue, navy, purples, orange, and lime green... hell yes.

 

The way I see it, and this will come off snooty but the truth is the truth.  95% of the guys in my office are wearing ill fitting pants and shirts, wrinkled, with shoes that haven't seen a shoe tree in their life, on top of that.. polish.  No one has room to talk if the subject is the color of shoe laces.... however, most of the feedback I get is always positive regarding my appearance.  Some will bust my balls a little bit, but its all in good laughter.

This is a valid point. Unlike with traditional laces, colored ones need to be incorporated into your outfit. It becomes another accent color that can't just be ignored.

 

jjr4884: It's too bad you don't like red because I find it can work pretty well as long as the red is deep and the shoe color works with it. I think it works well with bourbon shoes and some combination of very dark, subdued greens somewhere else in the outfit (like a tie). Red is too wide of a range of colors to rule out by itself, but if it doesn't work for you, it's best to make that call like you have.

I can tell you this as well... The TSA will comment on your colored laces. They see the same boring stuff all day I suppose. Colored laces will get you compliments and maybe even faster through the line.
