Good choice! The Frye James is better looking than the Allen Edmonds macneil imo as you can see:

I wish I'd picked up a pair of Bayfields when they were on sale. It's raining today, so I wore a pair of blucher boots that a local outfit made for me; the quality is at least as nice as AE (and it was great fun to pick out the leather from a stack of hides, then discuss details with the lady who'd be making them) but it's slowly dawning on me that I can never have too many dress boots.

Those look great. I get the feeling they get better with age.

I really like them; very comfortable, and very tough with the Horween cxl leather.  I had them resoled with a butyl leather sole, and prefer it to the mini lug sole that came with the boots originally.

That pic doesn't do the Macneil Justice, and those Fryes need broguing on the toe.

Every Saturday night starting as a young kid it was my job and privilege to polish my father's and mine shoes. Then the military for 20 years where I tried my best to ensure none of my men had a better shine than I did. Agree with everything both bucksfan and sevenfoldtieguy said, among others so not much to add to it. Very well done and good discussion indeed.

This is not to revive the shell v. calf topic, but I thought the following link (picture) was apropos in demonstrating the shine each gets:

I have both the shoes pictured, albeit on the Hampton Last, and not the Plaza. So the comparison is one I know from personal experience.

A good Friday to one and all.

That Alden Cigar Tanker boot is a thing of beauty.

FYI Amazon currently has first quality Park Avenue in black for $288, in a variety of sizes.  Not quite as good as the Nordstrom sale, but still about $45 off full retail.  Ships free with Prime.
