Pretty good deal if you are in the market for a pair of suede dress shoes, I'd say.

RL website is now selling them for $168. Very tempting.

Pros:
They look awesome

Cons:
No half sizes
Was hoping to avoid buying shoes for a while
Where would I wear them? (I live in Virginia)

No widths either.

As an aside, I still have a dream in the back of my mind of moving up to Port Washington and starting a second career as an apprentice shoemaker . . .


+1 to that!

 

I have actually given serious thought to pursuing a career in the shoe crafting business. It's been an interest of mine since I was around 10 years old. I know a guy in Mongolia that makes shoes by hand. I plan to live there for a few years after I graduate. If he allows it, I would spend the majority of my free time following him around learning the trade.

 

How's this for inspiration:

Finally got my BB walnut strands in 7E which fit perfectly.

Yes. According to Allison, brown and dark brown are the same shade of shell. Same part number, but there are individual variations in shell.

Brown shell Dundees are in production for me.  Also, in speaking with Vincenzo at the SB a few days ago, I was astonished to learn that the Boston AE store had a pair of Dundees in the truffle aka cappuccino shell in my size that had apparently been laying around there for quite some time.  Of course, I had to jump on those and am very much looking forward to their arrival.

 

Polo, I assume that color is represented in your pics as well?

Strands are $230 right now in Amazon Prime in certain sizes and colors.  Mostly Walnut, Black, and Burnished Brown.

The Mcallisters pictured are truffle (cappuccino), as is the saddle on the Sheltons.
