Query:  All other things being equal, which is more versatile - a longwing blucher or a shortwing blucher?

I want to buy your Strands so badly, but just cannot possibly justify it to myself. Essentially the same shoe as my brown shell Jefferson, just with a different brogue pattern. I think I'll be putting my money into some color 8 chukkas next.

I think they are pretty equal. Kinda hard to even tell the difference looking down on them when wearing. haha

I would give the slight edge to the shortwing.  The LWB has extra brouging that wraps around, whereas the shortwing ends quicker.

 

Last also makes a big difference.  I have a pair of 333 last lwbs that look like skinny cousins to the Alden 975s.

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.

I didn't look at the link, but now I know they are the Atoms right?

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.
