I would say it depends on your wardrobe. If you wear a fair amount of denim and go for a more classic American style that is less formal the LWB will be more versatile. If you tend to wear a dressier wardrobe, think more fine worsted wools, the SWB would be more versatile.

I feel like LWB is more versatile being a blucher. I've not seem many blucher shortwings, but they do exist.

Does anyone recall if the Strand went on sale during the sale around Memorial Day last year?
Thanks.

I like shortwing bluchers. Here are mine.

And my only longwing

I think the longwing is a bit more casual than the shortwing. But I don't think the difference is enough to move to one choice or the other.

I forgot that I even own a pair still...

That reminds me that I need to wear them more.

I really want those. I need to stay away from wingtips, tho. I actually need to unload a pair or two.

Thanks to all who responded to my query re: shortwing bluchers vs. longwings - and especially to those who posted pics!  Some really sweet examples of the former in there.

 

I own two pairs of Blake SWBs from Rancourt, and two pairs of shell SWBs from Carmina.  I was trying to decide between getting another SWB from Rancourt or getting an MTO MacNeil . . . and in true SF fashion I now think I'm going to get both.  The former will be in shell and will become my go-to black dress shoe (pushing my black calf PAs aside, which will be saved for weddings and funerals).  The latter will be in black CXL and will I anticipate become a beloved casual shoe.  (Yeah, I know black doesn't get any love here - but it does from me.  Sue me.)

 

This is in part apropos of my recent MacNeil 5 purchase . . . I've decided they're going back in favor of the MTO.

Hi Gents,

I just ordered a pair of Rush Str and they where BO. They said there is a 4wks wait to get them.

It is that long to get them or it can be less?

Also i consider to cancel my order and place an MTO for a rush str with double sole, they ask only 50$ to change it...

Also somebody know if there is a huge difference between the Brogue Suede and the Chocolate ?

I have a pair of Strand Brogue and i want to match it with the Player Chocolate belt..

Thanks

In my experience, it may take less than 4 weeks to make them depending on whether or not they already have the upper assembled.  It may also take longer if it fails inspection so you just never know.

 

I would take advantage of the MTO option and make a few changes (upgrade outsole, upgrade lining).  Please search the AE MTO thread on this forum to get more information and to avoid the added fees.
