i know, and guess what?

the asymmetry of the "Wiener Leisten" hardly allows an alignement of the quarters. None of mine and there are twenty from four different makers has that.

i didn't have to...

Generally it's always easier to pair with darker colored shoes - so my vote goes for AE.

Posted this in SWD but this may be a more appropriate place to ask. I'm looking for a new pair of wingtips. Ideally I'd like to pick up a pair of cigar shell Alden Longwings but in an effort to finish grad school without any loans I have to be a bit more conservative with my spending.

Looking at these options...
Florsheim Imperial Kenmoor Wingtip $225
Tan Pebble Grain

Wine Heritage Calf


Allen-Edmonds Men's MacNeil $325
Walnut Pebble Grain

Burgundy Pebble Grain


Allen-Edmonds McAllister $295
Merlot Burnished Calf

Walnut Calf


I know the darker shades are probably more practical but I love the lighter shades. Are there any other good options out there in a similar price range that I'm missing?
