I'm not seeing the match madness.
As for all green wingtips, maybe. Depending on how green. And whether or not it's March 17 and you're surrounded by beer drinkers.
Or maybe with red socks in December at the company ugly sweater party!
I'm starting to come around to the idea.
** edit: I found 'em. That green is definitely drunken St Patricks, not a muted olive that might work with normal fashions.post #259 of 193282/16/16 at 12:29pmpost #260 of 193282/16/16 at 12:40pmpost #261 of 193282/16/16 at 12:46pmQuote:
In my case, I wouldn't say it was bigger, but roomier. I probably COULD have if I was inclined to dance that dance, however.
I went so far as to wear a McGregor on one foot and a McAllister on the other.post #262 of 193282/16/16 at 12:46pmpost #263 of 193282/16/16 at 12:49pmQuote:Originally Posted by Moose22
Oh Em Gee... I finally got shipping notice on my shoes!
Remember, I ordered a pair of "Mocha boxanil" shoes at the thanksgiving sale just over 3 months ago and got a pair that had so much bowing in the throat I could slip out of them without untying them. And the heels were WAY off. Bummer, as I really wanted to fill a dark brown hole in my wardrobe, and the color of those shoes was really lovely.
After a month, they told me they couldn't get the leather to make another pair, so offered me any OTHER shoe in the regular line. So I told them Dark Brown Burnished Cornwallis. That'll go with nice pants of almost any color.
So, I've been waiting since the new year for my shipment. Talked and emailed with Melissa a few times with "they should go out next week" in response. And here we are! Finally! A shipping notice!
Ugh. Have you ever felt like you are in a Jerry Lewis movie, and you should laugh, but you don't because you're not French?
I haven't followed your entire saga, but congratulations!
And now I must ask...did you adjust your standard sizing? I want to put more effort into this when I jump on the Cornwallis.
If anyone else wants to weigh in on their Cornwallis sizing, that'd be great, too.post #264 of 193282/16/16 at 12:57pmQuote:
What he said. FWIW, I used to be adverse to the burgundy and a darker gray. Even that has become a favorite. Medium gray is a no-brainer with it and navy with burgundy looks really sharp while remaining conservative IMO. If oxblood is a little loud, it can be toned down with polish over time.
A repost from last week:
Black shoes with either suit will look more formal in today's society (especially with a white shirt), so I reserve black for more formal occasions and winter church services. Black is the safest because burgundy and navy at a winter funeral may look out of place. Brown will work better with the gray than the blue IMO, but will look good with both, and it is passible at a winter funeral.
Also, if you are wearing a suit more than once a week, you may want to go ahead and plan for black and one other color, purchasing black first.
If I were wearing a suit less than twice a week, I would go with burgundy/merlot/oxblood.
A different approach may be to assess the base color of your tie leanings. If you lean towards blue based ties, I would go black shoes; red based ties would be burgundy; and orange, green, and yellow bases would be brown. For purples I may go burgundy or black.post #265 of 193282/16/16 at 1:55pmJust ordered the brown Kirkwood and cognac McTavish. Ordered the McT 0.5 size longer, as they didn't have my usual size. It was either that or the usual size and + 1 in width. So we will see... By the way, does AE do price adjustments? Few days ago I purchased Flatiron firsts for $217 and now they are down to $177. It's not that much but bugs me a little.post #266 of 193282/16/16 at 2:01pmpost #267 of 193282/16/16 at 2:21pmQuote:Originally Posted by cc808314

Did you go with an 8D? If so, I'm a bit more optimistic than Neo. Might have to go with thicker socks, but I have a feeling you'll be fine.post #268 of 193282/16/16 at 2:47pmQuote:I will not give up. I will make it work . ThanksOriginally Posted by Neo1
1. Call about the flatiron - they should adjust it.
2. McTavish in either configuration you described won't work, sorry to burst your bubble. They just run really large to start with.
3. Enough about that damn brown Kirkwood already - you guys are cruel.Quote:
Yes, went with the 8D from CAC, as I couldn't get hold of anyone from the Mebane, NC store. I was thinking of also ordering 7.5E, but didn't.post #269 of 193282/16/16 at 3:12pmQuote:
A thin foam or terry cloth insole does wonders for a slightly large/wide shoe, trust me.post #270 of 193282/16/16 at 3:12pmWondering if anyone can help me with Dundee (1.0) fitting, especially as it relates to the Gobi and Bleecker Street. I have the latter two and they couldn't be further apart in fit. The Gobi is very roomy and looks unstructured and quite casual on my feet. By contrast, the Bleecker Street seems very narrow and fitted, resulting in a really sleek look. I'd like to add a pair of navy Dundees but want them to fit/look more like the Bleecker Streets.
