Would I be out of line wearing these to a wedding?  Thanks.

 

Edit: FWIW, I also have a matching chili belt.

The brooks strand wasn't included as part of the 2 for 200 deal, not all models were available. Don't worry! I picked up the BB strands in dark brown 2 weeks ago for 199 and they have quickly become my favorite. Just enjoy them!

i selected BB strand walnut. in the beginning i went for ae strand. but since it has leather outsole and my job does involving a lot of travelling, finally bought BB strand cos its outsole is partly rubber which is suitable for daily use. is that riight they have different outsole?

Looking for an AE model that isn't in production anymore - the Jodox. If you know where I can find it in an 11C, 10.5C or 10.5D please let me know. Thanks.

I wore a navy suit with walnut lombards to a wedding yesterday. Received lots of compliments and looked great. If you are comfortable wearing it, wear it. You're going to look better than most everyone there anyway.

That's the truth - just having a pair of well-shined shoes will put you head and shoulders above most.  Those Fairfaxes are actually a pretty formal shoe (being a wholecut balmoral).  Weddings are a festive occasion, you'll be fine.

Yes, the AE for BB shoes have rubber sections of the outsole (under the ball and toe of the foot).  This should provide more longevity, especially when walking on wet concrete.  

 

Today's pair: AE Macneil in burgundy shell cordovan.  Stripey socks for a day of intra-office meetings.

I'm wearing very similar shoes in style and color (slightly less formal) to a wedding in a couple weeks. Not saying I'm correct or incorrect doing so, but fuck it who cares.

Thank you!  I apologize for the glare - my blackberry camera takes lousy indoor pictures, so I try to take outdoor whenever possible.  Unfortunately lately, that means the early morning (and the glare that goes along with it).  

 

Nice walnut cordovan Strands, really love the variations in color!
