Hmmm...  Looking at those leaves a lot of questions for me...

Not ravello. Faded burgundy.

I think your caution is well placed. AE usually has a "View with pants" section on the far right side of the various views of the shoes. In this case it is noticeably absent. It gives one the feeling that they might not have a good suggestion what pants would go with this shoe. I think it is safe to say jeans, shorts, and khakis. I don't think I could pull off any other combinations.

 


I've been wearing mine with shorts and light-colored chinos.  I alternate them with the AE driving shoes (e.g., Ventura Highway, Interstate 90, Daytona).  Great summer shoe and super comfy.

I just picked up a pair of black Brooks Fifth Avenues for $169.15.  These ought to be my "special occasion" shoes for the next decade.

Allen-Edmonds shoes in the wild.

Wearing Allen-Edmonds tan suede Strandmoks and a Trafalgar alligator belt that do not match while on the news rack graphic a boy and a girl fight over whether or not shoes and belt must match.


Close up of the tan suede Strandmoks.

Shorts was exactly what I was thinking

I picked up some good deals at Nordstrom Rack today-

3 Manistee Dress Belts. (these are $120 retail)

 

$5 for Black

$5 for Walnut

$9.98 for Brown

 

These 3 (in my size) were all that I saw.

 

If only they had a Chili to complete the cycle!  ;->

Gentlemen I'm hoping you can help me. I love my Allen Edmonds but I snagged 2 pair from Ebay I know little about. A boat shoe called the Sherwood and a cap toe Bergland. I have 8 pairs of AE, many Fryes, Alden, Church's (pre prada), Cheaney, J&M, Ralph Lauren, vintage Florsheims and some others but my AE are my favorites. Does anyone know about the 2 models I listed?

The Sherwood is casual, almost "boat shoe" in appearance. The front is an apron style 3 eyelet moccasin with padded insole and lugged rubber sole. Not sure of the leather other than it is "soft" with a padded collar. There is contrast stitching, so I would recommend using leather lotion for cleaning and neutral for any polishing you contemplate.

 

The Bergland is also a comfort shoe with padded insole and rubber outsole. This blucher cap-toe is made of antibes leather and came in black and brown. Both were discontinued in 2007 and you can use condition/cleaner on them.

Any idea when the Sherwood was made?

As I mentioned a couple days ago, I bought a NIB pair of Verona II's on eBay- very excited, as I've been wanting a pair of these since my 2 pairs of Cole Hasn Ascot II's burned out a little over a year ago (not worth resoling). I got to thinking though- does anyone know who makes AE's Italian-made shoes? I can't find anything online.

I always assumed it was one of the multitudes of no-name makers who stock all the high-end menswear shops. I imagine a slim, disheveled guy in his 40s, long messy hair, a cigarette flopping out of his mouth, operating a Blake machine in his workshop somewhere in the Tuscan hills. His name is Guglielmo, he's been making shoes since he was a boy, and every day, he walks down to the local trattoria, where he plays bocce and drinks red wine and grappa all evening.

I would be perfectly okay with this.
