If I were in your position, I'd only get the Long Branches. No need to spend too much money right away, before you really know your style, just because there is a sale. The Long Branches will be fine for anything from jeans to chinos to corduroy pants...and maybe even some more casual wool. There is probably no instance in your college career that you will need a formal dress boot.

 

If you want something just a bit more dressy than the Long Branch, I would add the bourbon Daltons later. 

 

If you need formal footwear for weddings, funerals, job interviews etc., you should stick to a dress shoe...for now.

Had to post another picture of my recently acquired (lightly worn from another SF member) Cognac Dublin Leather McTavish's. Love these shoes. Great for dressy-casual business environment...

Those are absolutely gorgeous, BCer. You're rocking them with style and class.

Agreed 100%

 

I'd go long branches and a dress shoe if you can find a black or burgundy one in your size.

I had the Chili LaSalle's, loved them. Great with business casual or chinos, even dressy jeans. They do have the poron insole, which I love as it's super comfortable, but some believe will decrease the useful life of the shoe.

Just spoke with Allison.  As many of you know, helping us on SF with our MTO requests is only one of her responsibilities.  She, as well as most of the outlet locations, is currently inundated with requests from the 2/$250 sale.  She asked for me to relay the message that she hasn't forgotten about anyone's inquiries, she's just quite busy.

I love amazon. 

 

Got a pair of fifth avenues for about $120s + tax... brand new (not seconds).  Wasn't suppose to be this low.  Suppose to be getting it at $210 but I'm not sure what they did when they applied the promotion code but it made it much much lower.  I'm not complaining =).  First pair of AEs and I'm excited it'll arrive today.

Thanks!

Does the insole affect the sizing, as with the Brooks models?

I found it to be slightly more snug in a resting position but I would not change sizes because of it. I also thought that once walking in them you kind of sink into the insole which made them lose a bit of tightness if that makes sense.
