Are McAllisters casual enough to wear with jeans/chinos?

 

They're considered more casual than Strands because of the extra brogueing right?

It's the opposite. McAs are considered more formal in most occasions.  Most will advise against wearing them with jeans and chinos, but I think if you may be able to get away with it if they are walnut McAs, nice navy sport coat and dress shirt.  Even with that look, i would much prefer the Walnut player shoes over McAs.

Correct me if I'm wrong (and I hope I'm wrong). AE doesn't offer any wholecuts right now do they?

They might have Hanover seconds in black or bourbon in your size. But they must have wiped out all the firsts in the clearance section.

In my opinion, strands and McAllisters are about equal in formality.

I would consider something with open lacing, like the Player, MacNeil, or Larchmont. I always think dressy balmorals look odd with jeans, unless they're clearly casual like McTavish, Ridgeway, or Spiaggia.

Meanwhile, here are my new MacNeils on their inaugural wearing. I'm really enjoying the light edge treatment... Is this AE's "natural"?

Can you provide details on this makeup? I've never seen AE's brown look like this. they are gorgeous.

^^I think that may be a MacNeil5 judging by the shape.

Carlyle is a plaintoe, but not a wholecut.

Natural has more of a yellow tan color to it.

Cool, thanks Mike! I agree, I really like the colour.

They were an eBay purchase, so I don't know if they were a special make up or not. The colour is very similar to my Dark Brown Burnished calf Strands, and as Mike points out above, they have a lighter, transparent edge dressing.

I hadn't even considered that, but it very well may be. They are a bit sleeker and have a more pronounced "point" to them than do my other MacNeils. They're a bit snug as well. I'm at work now, but will check the numbers inside when I get home to confirm the last.

The million dollar question... 

I actually better put aside at least like $1300 for a couple of MTO if it does come back. I think I would do a pair of Leeds and a pair of Daltons or Strands. I always wanted a pair of McAllisters in walnut but now I have the Truffle pair so I think I could pass.


Oh my... A walnut shell Promontory Point MTO in walnut shell would be the ultimate, sad that boot got discontinued. 

I have definitely thought of doing the same and probably will. I have a pair of walnut Strand seconds that I adore, but would kill for a walnut Dalton that actually fits my foot. After owning a 13D and a 12D at separate times, it's become apparent that I would need a custom size for these boots. Unless the ebay gods smile down on me some magical day, it looks like my only hope is for AE to re-source the material.

The OG of the rough collection.

These have seen many, many miles.

One easy way to confirm is to check for slip beading. The classic MacNeil has slip beading while the MacNeil 5 doesn't if I remember correctly.

Great looking shoes btw!

While I'm not strict about bals with jeans. I would certainly say that the MacNeils look awesome with jeans. Wore this combo today
