Mid Term Grades for designprofessor shoe damage

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Gentlemen, here's a sample of what I own.
A few things I must say:
I do have black shoes but am looking for new ones.
I'm also looking for suede.
Most are Allen Edmonds, because they work for me and only now am I branching out to other makers.
I don't have the best shoe trees, but i do rotate what I have around.

I also included some of my favorite ties, might as well start a tie damgage while we're at it.

Group one: left to right
1. Allen Edmonds (not sure the style name)
2.AE "Broadstreet"
3.Mezlan "Squire"
4. Antonio Maurizi

Group two: left to right
1.Banana Republic (I like to wear boots with my suits in fall / winter, these are great with heavier stuff, sturdy too.)
2.AE "Brantley"
3.AE, not sure of the style name, 4 rows of stitching on wingtip design.
4.Alden, these are over 15 years old, got them for $90
5.Romano Martegani, SF's Ron Ryder helped me out on these.

Ties : Left to right:
1 Robert Talbott, B o C,skull and bones, I wear this one to graduation and at test time
2.Harold Powell
3.Zegna
4.Zegna
5. Barney's
6. Zegna
7. Robert Talbott, BoC

Very nice! I like your taste in shoes. Not a 10.5 US, are you ? P.s. those Mezlans are surprisingly tasteful (fot Mezlans I mean). Good choice!

Thanks for the compliments gentlemen, especially from the prior posts from what you guys own.
edmorel, on the Marteganis, i'm not sure of the style name, don't even recall it on the box. I sent a jpeg from Francos to ron. Price $375

all the other AE's are from their shoe bank, about half off retail cost.

Those Marteganis are on the Franco's site. I've been eyeballing them for months.

Is that an AE austerity brogue in the second picture? Anyone know more about it?

I like that paisley tie a lot, and also the red tie on the far right.

I notice there are 8 ties in the photo, but you only listed/described 7.

Nice! I esp like the Maurizi's, the BR brogue boots, and the Martegani's. I agree that the Mezlan's look a lot better than the norm for Mez.

Doc, that is from AE, fairly old, discontinued shoe as far as I know. The # on the inside is 2454 if that is a help. There is no style name on the inside sole. It has no perforations, instead four rows of small non contrasting stitching. The overall design is a traditional wingtip. I can post a side pic if needed.

Would you, please? I really like the look of it, both the color and styling.

Nice shoes! I'm normally not a big fan of paisley ties, but the paisley tie from Harold's is my favorite.

Doc,I believe color is "oak" according to AE. Double oak sole. I liked it because it was a modern take on the wingtip.

VERY nice. Thanks for the extra pics. Yet another shoe to search out...
