AE McTavish or McAllister for more casual wear

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

 

I am considering purchasing either AE's McAllister or McTavish for more casual wear, although I would like to dress them up as well if need be. Which would you suggest, as well as what color? I would most likely be wearing them with jeans, occasionally dress pants and maybe a suit (as long as it is not to work). Additionally, I will like these to take over as my casual "going out" type shoe, to bars etc. Which do you all think would be the best choice?

 

Thanks

Sounds like the McTavish in the natural color would be more suited to your usual purposes, although it wouldn't look good with a suit. The McAllister in walnut would go with suits and would look ok with jeans. If you want something to pull double duty, get the McAllister. Ideally, you'd get two pairs of shoes: one casual, one for suits.

Thank you for the advice. I think I will go with the McTavish. One last question, I do not have any belts that are "natural" (ie tan) in color, but do have brown, burgandy and black. which of my belts do you think would look best with the shoes (lets say with a dark blue wash jeans)

I have the McTavish in the natural wax infused finish - definitely would not recommend wearing them with suits, but they look great with jeans and casual wear.

I'd probably go with the brown belt, if that's the closest you have. I don't find it necessary to match my shoes and belt exactly for casual wear. I would not wear burgundy with jeans. Burgundy, even more so than black, seems too formal to me for jeans and the McTavish. But that could just be me.
