    Hey.

    I'm thinking of getting my next pair of shoes. ( so far I have one pair of AE Clifton in Walnut. And a pair of black loafers from Aldo, I hope to replace soon, but make for a good pair of night out shoes)

    Thinking of these http://www1.bloomingdales.com/catalo...tegoryID=16243

    or getting the 5th Aves from AE.. for those times when I have to dress up..rarely but best to have something.

    In fact im thinking I should get a pair of double strap monks.. in either dark brown or walnut..but I already have walnut shoes...but they look amazing in it.. Anyone know a nice pair around the above price tags?

    thanks

    Fifth Avenue in dark brown would be a great shoe. So would a double monk in dark brown. I am not aware of any double monks in that price range but I'm sure other members will.

    Bruno Magli is a decent shoe, if you can get it for under $100. At $425 you can find a pair of much better shoes on ebay or in the buy&sell subforum.

    I love my AE 5th Aves. [​IMG]

    I also like the Strand which I will hopefully pick up soon. I have become a real fan of the Walnut color and now don't seem to like my Black J&M bluchers much anymore.

    You can do much better for the price involved. I've considered Bruno Magli in the past, but its relative quality to price has always deterred me.
