    I'm trying to buy a pair of Amoks from the Brookfield location but need some help. Tan and olive colors are easy to find, but does anyone have pictures of the Amoks in "mocha" or "brogue"?

    I've seen other Allen Edmonds shoes in brogue and they looked like the current snuff suede. The SA said that they are a "cinnamon color". She also told me that mocha is the color of mocha coffee. Unfortunately these descriptions don't really help me. Are one of these code words for the bitter chocolate color? I'm lost.

    Need your advice, purchased these from J'Ville outlet as seconds. Wore them once and just noticed the heel is separating. Structural defect? Return them?

    Any pics if the old burgundy shell finish versus the new one? I was unsuccessfulyself using the search function yesterday.

    Looking for my for my first pair of shell. I was originally thinking brown Patriots, but will also consider Burgundy.

    Also considering Cambridge now, but I'm not sure since I have walnut McAllisters and could also just get them burgundy calf.

    Are you sure it's separating? It looks like an uneven cut.

    Really love the shine especially the last pair. I just never seem to be able to do that my self. Most likely why I gone shell so I don't have to even try

    I don't think so. I think a big part of the sizing depends on your specific foot shape, I wear the same size in 4, 5 and 8 lasts: 12E. They all fit me very well and they're almost all balmorals. A couple of pairs are a little looser than others, but the looser ones are the 5-lasted. I think this is just due to the slight variation from hand-crafting or different leathers, even on the same shoe and some of my 5-lasts are spot on. I would try TTS first.

    Slightly off shoe topic... There seems to be several on here who know a lot about the upcoming Nordstrom sale. I need to buy a few suits. What is the difference with the upcoming sale on the 19th versus what is on sale now? I'm wondering if I should try to get there before this sale ends or if these types of men's clothing items will also be on sale come the 19th.

    Thanks in advance.

    My chili Fairfaxes (ignore the baggy pants, was wearing an old suit that's too big on me now).
