    Hi,

    I lurk here a lot but never post.

    Anyway, I'm trying to decide among three AE models: Larchmont, Parkway, Flatiron. They all look great from what I can tell. I have to buy online, so your input helps. Which one would you think is best for my situation below? And how would you rank them in terms of formality?

    The shoes will be used for "going out", parties, weddings, dates, occasional church...they need to work with dressier jeans as well as a suit (I just need to wear suits about 5 times per year though).

    And if you have any other brand/model ideas, let me know.


    Thanks!

    Between the 3, I would have to say that Flatiron in Walnut calf. Walnut wears well with jeans and a grey suit (in my opinion).

    However, were I to buy only one pair of AE shoes, it would without question be a strand in walnut calf.
