    Black and walnut Stands or should I get black Mcallister and walnut Stand?

    I'm unsure how much I like the Allen Edmonds Mcallister in black. The wingtip seems like it would look better in brown or walnut but that's not an option. So which would you choose? A) Black and walnut Stands OR B) Black Mcallister and walnut Stand Thanks!
