    I really like those Stewart derbies. I wanted to order them during this clearance sale, but I have too many brown shoes.

    I'd love a pair of Stewart derbies in blue suede - like the ones they did for Lands End a couple years ago:

    Almost all of my trousers are grey toned. Maybe I should own some navy shoes...

    I wouldn't even consider these Stewarts brown..it's very much a tan with reddish tones. Considering this makeup is about one fourth the price of a whiskey or ravello shell blucher, I'm happy with them :).

    Oddly enough, this is my first pair of PTBs. I've got longwings, shortwings, loafers, balmorals and a handful of boots...but never a plain toe.

    My Black Neumora's arrived this morning. I probably could have gone with a half size smaller but for the price I got on the sale I'm not going to complain. They are beautiful shoes!

    Wearing my suede today now that there isn't a mess of wet snow outside. These are a style from a few years back, the McClain on the 8 last.

    Hi all,

    First time posting. I have a pair of Wolverines 744 seconds on hold at the shoe bank for $399. Should I pull the trigger or does anyone have any insight on them coming back down to 299? Looks like I just missed it.

    Thanks!

    So I've decided I'm just not in love with my brown shell Jeffersons (9EEE). They are just a little too clunky in my opinion.

    I can swap them for a brown shell Strand in either 9EE or 9.5E.

    My questions is, if I'm normally a 9EEE in the Strand, am I better off getting the 9EE (given that shell is a little roomier than calf), or going up to the 9.5E?


    Thanks!

    Well Allison just told me that the Promontory Point makeup I had selected cannot be made with a lining. I might have to see if I can swap it for an Eagle Country makeup...with pretty much those exact specs.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Pull the trigger. Don't count on $299 shell again. Getting the 744s would be quite a kop and I'd love to see pics if you do buy them.

    yeah, with most of the "deals" posted on here I am usually glad I didn't bite, but this eagle county MTO thing was a huge opportunity for a really nice looking shoe for a really cheap price. It was essentially a can't miss deal, i dont know it the deal is still on the table or not, but either way, I already spent my money on a pair of fifth streets which I do like very much.

    I need to pickup a few AE belts -- if anyone has suggestions on sales/price discounts/recraft gift card balance/etc, I'm open for comments [​IMG]

    - Dearborn Dress belt (bourbon)
    - Manistee Dress belt (merlot)
    - Cottonwood Casual (navy)


    Does anyone have suggestions on a belt/color match for the Smokey Grey (6061) Long Branch's?
