I have personally never worn a pair of black dress pants in my life...

I dont wear black suits ever. I have a few pairs of black pants that I wear with lighter or striped shirts. I wanted a pair of boots for those. I'm probably going to go cheaper since the shoes won't have high utility so it's all good.

Randolph (burgundy, black)

Patriot (burgundy)

Park Ave (black)

Grayson (burgundy)

McGraw (burgundy)

Macneil (burgundy, black)

Leeds (black)

Dundee (only says "truffle" where as the rest give the color and clearly state cordovan. It's priced at $299 though, so should I assume this is shell?)

 

My current collection:

 

Black calf Strand

Walnut calf Strand

Grey Aberdeen

Walnut Shell Dalton

 

What do you guys think is the best way to go here? Thanks! 

 

You need some burgundy and could use a loafer, but you don't appear to need another brogued wingtip.  Personally, I would take the burgundy MacNeils (followed by the Dundees), but my needs are different.   In your case I'd go with the Graysons or the Dundees.

MTO for $455 is the clear answer there.

+1.  Those are gorgeous.  The discoloration is not severe--if anything, it's wabi-sabi chic.

 

Not sure what that means but I like it! They fit perfectly. I'll do a lot of brushing tonight and see what that does for them.

I wonder if I could get a Saddle shoe Shell make up in two different kinds of shell. Hmm....
post #30906 of 51266

For those who have been on this thread longer, is the 299 for shell an exceptionally good sale? Or does the 299 shell come around quite frequently? I am trying to resist getting another pair of shoes, because I think getting a pair every couple of weeks is bordering on some kind of disorder for me, but I will sorely regret if this 299 for shell deal is a rare opportunity.

 

Sorry if this adds to the cheapening of the brand b/c I fall into the camp of buying AE when on discount, but clearly I am just another shoe addict trying to stretch my money for my affliction :laugh:

It's a Japanese phrase. Loose translation is 'imperfection is perfection'

Doc, no. Doesn't work on several levels for me.
