both have the same brick sole

I'd go for the bucks. I like the wingtips, but I think I'd wear the bucks more.

On edit: I was posting my response as you posted the longwing.

All things being equal, I'd probably go with the longwing. Since I already have a casual longwing (and am not a fan of wingtips), I'd personally still go with the buck.

I've actually got my eyes open for a pair of plain toe bluchers (not bucks) in navy suede.
what makes bucks bucks?
like if i saw PTB in navy suede, i'd think they are navy suede bucks .. and vice versa

I don't like brogueing, so I would say bucks.

I like these from Sanders:

They come in other colours too.

It looks better with a white sole IMO.

I would have thought the same.

I believe bucks were originally made using deer hide, hence the term "buck"

XKxRome0ox - i like the blue bucks.
post #12264 of 16193
i do like the navy suede shoes ... BOTH of them actually
and i guess i'd keep the bucks more since i have several wingtips
but i'm going to return them both
and probably order the land's end navy suede longwing instead (eventually)
but for now...



i really like these shoes
C&J Pembroke
really fills a void in my shoe rotation
and i really can't buy so many pairs of shoes at once ... so i will be responsible and return the red wing boots and the jcrew suede shoes

It's very likely I'm not using the correct terminology. What I would like to have is a navy suede version of this (borrowed pic from trig).

If that is the case, that wasn't the distinction I intended.

id recommend a khaki colored SC, in a cotton or cotton/linen blend. RL makes a great one for under 300.

i have a brooks bro cotton sc in khaki/light tan color ... but it feels too stuffy to wear for a truly casual outfit
wish the shoulders were completely unstructured to be more casual


pre-tailoring trying on in the dressing room
i wonder if i can just have the shoulder pads taken out and see if the shoulders can be taken in a little to compensate ... (to the tailor's thread i go)

Its a nice looking jacket, but i agree, for the chinos and gingham look you had, a more unstructured and wrinkly fabric would be better. Keep an eye out.
