So if the colors are blue, green and ruby red here's what I'm thinking: navy Dundee, green Strand, and ruby red Fifth Avenue.  If i had to do only one, it'd be the Fifth Avenue.  Thoughts?


I want a Navy Dundee too.  Walnut Dundee, and Ruby red Carlyle!  Maybe a Navy First Avenue?

In anticipation of the trunk show can you guys post a few images of previous trunk show selections?

Isn't that a Neumok?

So last year there were very few color choices, so I took a brown MacNeil, black Strand, and brown Cornwallis

 

 

 

Two years ago I took: green MacGregor (don't recommend it), green Patriot, blue Carlyle, natural Strand, and natural Dundee:

 

 

Other choices if you don't want to go for the bonus colors: burgundy Rogue, burgundy Jefferson, burgundy Strand

 

 

Obviously I have fun with this.

True, but the one eyed man is the King in the land of the blind.

I'm curious what kind of leather is used on the olive Shannon drives? Suede? It's hard to tell.

You're correct- I've had some drinks this afternoon lol. My point still stands though, the leather on Strandmoks and Neumoks calls for conditioner/cleaner, not polish- they're more casual shoes. Same thing applies to my Mctavishes- they're not supposed to be as refined as a true dress shoe.

I have a question how do you find the cleaning and polishing. What I mean is they don't make blue shoe polish so how do you find this color holing up. What if it gets scuffed up does it polish out with just cleaner. I am just asking so that I have an idea if I get a pair.

 

I have a jar of Meltonian Navy Blue shoe cream to do touchups if necessary. I'll either use that or some neutral, depending on what it needs. 

 

I pretty much have matching shoe cream for all the colors of my shoes. If you want get into some of the less mainstream colors, thats the way to go in my opinion.

The green looks great too, not just the blue.  I also think this color blue is slightly better than the midnight navy, although I like both.  

 

Perhaps next year, I will set aside $100 a month and then I can save up for a navy shell Carlyle.  :)

 

Oh yeah, and I ordered a midnight navy Park Ave today.   Total was $259 before tax.  I can live with that.

Shell Brown Strands, Chili LaSalle, and Walnut Daltons.


 

The Lasalle color looks great!  I'm going to try adding some black polish to my Lasalles.
