I like to buy a pair of shoes from the countries I visit.  I got a pair of Meermins when I was in Madrid last year.  I'll probably get my Loakes when I finally get to England.  I assume having a normal width foot makes it alot easier to guess on a size, but with B width feet, the struggle is real.

Walnut Strand.  I just love the style/color combo with that shoe.  

 

Honorable mention to my brown saddle Vernons (great looking shoe) and merlot Hopkinsons (soooo comfortable).

As much as I don't like Poron insoles, I still love these shoes:

Happy Walnut Tuesday! I guess it doesn't have the same ring to it, does it? Anyway, here are my Madison Parks.

I can't tell what we love more: shoes or alliterations.

 


Alliterations, obviously. Part of the reason I bought my merlot McAllisters was so I could participate in Merlot Monday.

I mean, it was a small factor out of many reasons, but it was a reason nonetheless.

It rained last night, so I pulled out the Wilberts for this morning. They will move into heavy rotation as the weather starts to change here in Seattle.

 

 

(I don't buy pounds and pounds of candy for personal use, that's to refill the office candy jar.)

Tough call. Might very well be these Walnut Madison Parks. They feel good on my feet, are made from nice leather, I love the Walnut color and of course, they're wingtips!

Tough call, because I really like a lot of my AE boots, especially the Brown Higgins Mill. However, they're not super-practical in warmer weather. So, for me it's a toss-up between my Cognac McTavish and my Oxblood Strand. Both look fantastic, but I think the McTavish is just a little more versatile for my everyday life. I can pair it with jeans or chinos. The Strand works best with chinos or dress pants, but I'm usually not wearing dress pants at work (except for days when I want to wear the Strands), and while I have worn the Strands with jeans, it just doesn't work as well there as the McTavish does.

@Buster Brown Even though you goofed on me in the past, I still like you and don't hold a grudge. All your other stuff is 9 or 8.5 - what specifically is 8.5? I have a park & MacNeil, 7D. MacNeil I'm pretty damn close to the end, maybe a thumbnail. The toebox started out painfully narrow but expanded considerably. The vamp, with the lacing...haven't noticed any changes to that at all. Unless you're overloaded with length I probably wouldn't go down. Personally I bet brannock (7.5C) would have been my optimal but it wasn't available. I think dropping the length won't do what you want.

What's with the used pairs? BCF was flooded with these, id think new should be readily available for the schautel.

Just visited my local AE store and they told me that the majority of their shoes will be 15% off. The McAllister, Fifth Avenue, Delray, Cornwallis and Leiden are the only popular models under 300. I feel like last year's RDA Sale was better because I remember more shoes being under 300. I still kind of like the regular Strandmok in tan. Might exchange my saddle suede ones for those since the dainite sole on the tan ones will help me more in the upcoming winter.

Thanks. I don't have any inside info, but don't the outlets have their own sale in conjunction with RDA? I seem to recall that a good number of 2nds were sub $200. Including a big closeout of the BB branded ones at around $150.  This outlet sale went live the day before the actual RDA one, if I recall correctly.

I've cut down on the amount of bread I was eating and I lost a good size on my waste in about 6 weeks.  The only downside is that my 36 belts feel a little too large now.  I'm back to a true 32 size waste.  The suede belt is the largest of all, and I should not have ordered a 36.  Belts are tricky because they are not consistently the same size.

Congrats on getting healthier! Now get all of your pants tailored to force you into maintaining your current waste size.
