If I didn't have a couple of MTO shell Amoks on order, I'd get more of these as even a hair snug still fits my foot better than the Dundees I tried.

Thanks for getting back to me. I'm glad your answer is what it is because I have both pairs of Saunders ordered already on the same size as my Strands and McAllisters.

As far as the wifey concerned about our passion, mine seems pretty chill about it these days. Although I do sell on eBay, so I'm always snappin pics of things daily. Packages entering and leaving the house is a normal occurrence. eBay sales funds my shoe drug addiction, and she don't really care lol.
I can only recommend you try and involve her in why you enjoy what it is we all share here, maybe she will take an interest.

 

thanks again for the very helpful input.  I think I'm definitely getting the fifth street in brown.  I also agree with your advice as far as getting your S.O. involved in the hopes that she will better understand what we do here.

The only knock I have on these is that I wish they were a it taller like the Dalton. But they are a great boot for dress or casual.

Beatiful shoes!  I too like the idea of a balmoral boot.  A very classy look.  I also like the fact that the brown can be dressed up or dressed down.

You need to call your insurance agent and add $20,000 (or more) in case of fire or theft.

Yes... I did what I could to delete the original.  It was certainly a most regrettable comment.  My apologies to anyone who may have been, or in the future will be offended by the comment.

Any thoughts?

Walnut and Bourbon look good.

Dress shoes with six (6) eyelets for lace are becoming harder to find in AE styles, even though the few AE still offers, like the Cambridge, present themselves with that extra flare of higher quality and dress.  Even my 1999 version of the Sanford (which comes to 5 eyelets) resurfaced again just a couple of years ago to my delight . . . until I noticed they reduced the eyelets to only four.

 

Enjoy,


David

Park Avenue, Fifth Avenue, Strand, McAllister, Jefferson, Harrison, Broadstreet, McTavish, Neumok, Ridgeway, Strandmok, and Morgan are all 6 eyelet balmorals.

It is becoming apparent that more and more folks are getting their collections up to $20,000 to $30,000 in value . . . but some are still showcasing them in plastic containers, over the counter shoe racks, or some other contraption that does not carry the same value as the shoes themselves.

 

I remember back in the 1990's when I started collecting films on DVD, and I chose to set aside an extra $1.00 per film for the cost of having the collection in an ever expanding walnut case.  In the end I had collected over 5000 DVDs, and then began giving many away as the new technology entered as a choice.

 

Perhaps adding $30 to $50 per pair of shoes to be set aside for the housing of $350 to $650 shoes and boots would present the total package in showcasing AE shoes and boots.

 

 

IDEAS:

 

A relative small collection, but certainly expandable horizontally.

 

One of my favorites and certainly expandable.

 

 

Even good suits need to have a nice bedroom showcase

 

With the ability to showcase 60 pair, this selection is something to grow into.

 

Can showcase 24 of the best.

 

 

 

Like fine hardback books showcased, adding a proportional cost to the price of a good book, pair of shoes, or even fine wine - is much better than sticking precious items on the floor, in cardboard boxes, or other cheap means to store them.

 

I'm not suggesting it is easy to think ahead about the housing of shoes, but it can be done next time you choose to buy two pair and go with one, by saving the cash toward a showcase.

 

All my best,


David

Obviously not Daltons, as they are not boots. I don't think these are Allen Edmonds at all, they look like bourbon Strands but they look sleeker than the 5 last.

No, they are not AE.  Their Brits.  But the color (which can be achieved) shows it is suitable with dress trousers.
