You can also check out C&J and Carmina stores if interested.

I wear navy with browns all the time. Navy goes well with various browns.

Sir, you are preaching to the choir. I am wearing this combo more often than not.

I own all models listed save for the black shell WT boot (but I do own the black calf C&J for RL Lindrick boot). Of those listed, and all else being equal, get the 2210 (color 8 NST). Of those listed, if you want something other than a blucher, get the 993 (black shell mono saddle).

Good luck.

I have been leaning toward the 2210, but my ravello version may serve that role in my wardrobe.  Was thinking of trying something new, like the black shell monochromatic saddle.  Recent pics of the color 8 straight tip blucher and the black shell wingtip boot have also captured my attention.  Uncle's black wingtip bal (Tremont) also looks enticing.  I'm such a sucker for the pics on this thread!

 

Thanks for your feedback, SFTG.

That #8 straight tip blucher is enticing to me as well.

This was one of the many early versions of Men's Wearhouse Slogans that didn't make the cut.

^ Yep, I finally killed the Alden thread. Figures it would take a Men's Wearhouse reference to do it. Like kryptonite for SF.

@tifosi - kryptonite = Star Wars, don't worry.
post #85589 of 122416
Wait...kryptonite is in Star Wars, too???

Yes Anatomica is fantastic. Expensive but you won't find modified last shell many other places. One thing......be prepared for them to tell you not to size down ( contrary to conventional wisdom here). After spending 2 hours there I bought 2 pair, walked out of the shop in one and walked 3 miles back to my hotel. They felt more comfortable than my Nike frees and still do . I measure 10.5 C but my arch is an 11. They insisted I was a 10.5 C and........they were spot on. They stock C widths which is another reason I bit the bullet on the exchange hit from Euros.
