    I always feel that indirect sun offers the truest colors - and overcast skies usually make for the best pics.
    (The LWBs look great, btw!)

    Quote: I agree. If the Bourbon shoes came out consistently like the product photos, I'd buy up every pair I could find on the Shoe Bank. For my tastes, their Brown is too dark and, while it is a nice color, the Chili is too reddish for some applications. The Walnut color is its own beast and is even coming from the factory a bit too orange-ish these days like my Madison Parks.

    I do have the Bourbon polish and I think I'll just use on my Fifth Aves that and see how it goes.

    Thank you kind sir. It always surprises me just how comfortable they are too. Could easily wear them 18 hours straight

    I agree especially the walnut strands, they look great with denim (assuming you aren't doing that ripped jean stuff).

    Club Monaco has a pair of shell MacNeils in size 11 that you should be able to get for 30% off with the code SHOPSPRING.

    Not my size but I figured someone might be interested.

    Also, they should make the colors on their advertising more accurate. I am wearing my brown malones today, but notice how they actually look more like the Gold Diavolo in the ad above.

    I think it looks good as well it makes them a little more casual looking for the jeans too or maybe thats just me.

    Many of us really appreciate great pictures of shoes and I ran across a Forum member who shoots great images of his Alden collection. His instagram page is here. Although not AE, here are a few shots to show he is worth checking out.

    Called AE today about the Clark Street seconds in 7.5 E. Turns out they had an unlisted 1st for only $20 more in my 8 D size. [​IMG]

    Someone else mentioned seeing the cornwallis in Chili on shoebank and now I'm seeing it in my size as well. I wasn't aware they made it in this color. Is it a mistake shoe? I was thinking about getting a pair in brown but I am big fan of the chili....

    Looking great buddy! You are killing me. I really really like this shoe in this shade, but I can't rationalize the purchase, as I already have the chili LaSalle and Wilbert. I know I am going to regret it when they run out of my size

    So, I had some spare time yesterday. Decided to go through Shoebank/AE site and see if I can find anything to fill some gaps. Ironically, all that got me excited are on clearance. Picked up 6 pairs totaling $922 pretax (~$150/pair). So now I need to reduce it to 2-3 pairs, because, as understanding and accommodating my wife has been, the purchase of 6 pairs might just flip her :) So here is the list:

    1. Natural CXL Clark Street
    2. Navy suede Cavanaugh
    3. Bourbon Mora 2.0
    4. Brown Kenilworth

    5. Walnut Franciscan (will dye to different color)
    6. Walnut/bourbon Flatiron( will dye to different color)

    I am really itching for 1-4. Decisions, decisions, decisions....
