Mine were still tight after wearing them for 3 month. I usually wear 9.5D.  Ended up selling them. Currently on the waiting for a width up.

Those are dark brown not waxy brown Long Branch boots. I know because I own the same boots with the dark welt. AE obviously made boots with both color welts for some reason.

Hi guys, I need some help with my next pair of shoes. I need something versatile to wear with navy and gray suits maybe six times a year, that will still go well with khaki and denim the rest of the time. My current thought is that the Kenilworth would fit the bill, but what color? I am inherently not very stylish and welcome all opinions.

I work in manufacturing and wear steel toes five days a week and do not get to wear my nice shoes very often, so I'd like to get something formal that will dress down as deftly as possible. My other shoes are black McTavish and dark brown Long Branch.

Thanks,
Tom

The gap between suits and jeans is a tough one to bridge with a single pair of shoes. I only wear oxfords (like Park Avenues or Fifth Avenues) with suits, but those are much too dressy for khakis and jeans. Kenilworth's aren't really my cup o' tea anyhow, but I wouldn't wear them with a suit, or jeans either for that matter. If you really only want one pair of shoes for both roles, definitely get something in dark brown. Black doesn't work well for casual wear, and a light brown such as walnut wouldn't be ideal for conservative/formal situations.

Burgundy MacNeil. Boom.



Some don't like bluchers with suits, but I think it's a good bridge.

I would go with something in burgundy or chill, and either a chunky shoe with some broguing or a blucher. So, I would suggest a longwing like the Macneil, or a blucher like the Walton (I like the split-toe for both dress and casual) in chill.

Don't know about Chesters but AE use to make a lot of their popular models in "polished cobbler," i.e. corrected grain.  I have a pair of late 90's burgundy McAlisters in CG I use as a rain shoe on days have to wear a suit and don't want to subject my shell Cambridges (the same color) to the elements.

Some people don't like Mom, baseball, and apple pie.  They are to be shunned.  :D

 

If burgundy shell gunboats are wrong with suits, I don't want to be right.

Email Allen Edmonds with the four-digit code inside the shoe and ask away! They're friendly and helpful.

Looking good!

My replacement pair of brown shell Jeffersons just showed up yesterday. I ordered in early September, and the first pair that arrived in November was defective. I sent them back, and they had to make two more pairs to get it right (so there should be a couple of pairs of seconds out there in 9 3E).

I was getting irritated about the wait time, but after seeing them I think they were worth the four-month wait. smile.gif I'll have to keep them at the office for break in until the weather improves.

In other news, my Bayfields have been taking on this crazy winter like a champ! I treated them to a good rubdown with neatsfoot oil, and hit my chocolate Daltons with some Saphir Renovateur at the same time. The weather has been so crappy here that I've only worn my burgundy shell Daltons once this season - kind of bummed about that.

Then those must be one of your pair which showed up on the ends list sent to me (9EEE). What was wrong with them?

Whoever is selling them seems to be trying to make $150 profit on them.....those should have been $299 since they are seconds.

$299 is the sale price for shell seconds. The usual price for shell seconds is $450 (or thereabouts).

I'm not sure about the second defective pair. They failed inspection by customer service and weren't shipped to me, so I never saw them. The pair I originally received in November had a divot in the upper (see bottom shoe in the photo).

Is the primary difference between the sanford and the lexington a pair of eyelets? Also if anyone has a side by side pic of tan vs snuff suede it would be much appreciated.
