Even in a conservative office environment, a wingtip balmoral in black or burgundy is fine.

Well, generally I agree, but there are a few law firms and financial institutions where that might not fly, or so I've heard. I've never worked in one if these places, so I can't say first-hand if this is true.

I actually have that belt and thought it would be the same based on that picture - casual.  It's not though, it's just like the dress belts.

Now, I need to find a belt that matches, AE offers this belt, but I find it a bit casual looking. Any suggestions on alternatives?

I think that belt would be fine, but also take a look at the Manistee belt. I got the bourbon one with my bourbon Strands and it looks great.

I bought McAllisters and worn them three times. My left shoe is just fine. My right shoe on the other hand makes a weird noise while walking, during the flex to be precise. It's not a squeeking sound to point issues with the leather. I hear air puffing out of the shoe noise and gives a little extra bowing while flexing and making this noise.

 

Any idea, tips ?

 

Thanks much.

 

P.S : I have PAs and they are perfectly fine.


Bump. I appreciate your inputs. Thanks

Same here since I'm experiencing the same issue. Thanks in advance.

Here's a scan I found for the AE sale. Based on history does anyone know if other colors of the Strands or McAllisters or even the Park Avenues will be discounted? (Park Ave. should be $229)

Got my Broadstreet's in the mail from the webgem special. Disappointed that they didn't do the vintage label inside but oh well. Also, size up .5 from #5 last shoes, the toebox in the Broadstreet's is very narrow. Pic below.

Kenilworth Brown Burnished in action, I bought 7D instead of my normal size of 7E due to Amazon didn't have stock during my first shoe order 20% off, the pair has always been just slightly too narrow for my toes, and will give a small blister on the left or right feet if I have to walk a bit during the day.

Lesson learnt, never ever compromise size and fit for price!

I think the bone calf really makes the walnut pop.  Beautiful shoes.

As it shows two pairs of Maxfield, Neumok, and Lasalle I would guess it's only those colours? I was waiting for a Neumok in Snuff Suede, that's too bad.

It's traditionally only specific colors, but keep your eye on Amazon if you are looking for a different color.  Amazon has a history of matching the Anniversary sale, but for all colors in the specified models.  Usually takes Amazon a few days to a week to match, but they have each of the last several years.
