    Thank you for the clarification. Any other abreviations/acronyms I should know about?

    What do you all think about the lacing gap on these Boardwalk LWB's?

    Could one pull off a merlot belt with the oxbloods?

    While I'm at, more from Paramus. Merlot Jeffersons with Dainite soles. I didn't like something about the way these fit. I think it was because the bottom of the sole is a bit convex curved. They fit fine lengthwise, and I got full closure on the lacing, but they seemed small.

    Anyway, I prefer leather soles on these, and it seems weird to pay the Independence uncharge for non-Independence soles.

    In my opinion, yes, because it matches the darker part of the oxbloods.

    thanks for the input, everyone! i left the shoe trees in overnight and the strands seem to fit better now.

    thanks for the input! actually when i went to the store, i had tried 10.5D, 11D, and 10.5E. the 10.5D in the fifth avenues fit the best, and i thought it would be the same for strands because they are on the same last. was just surprised that it seemed the strands where a bit tighter.
    But i left my shoe trees in them overnight and it seems to have helped with the fit.

    I went with the Strand. Cornwallis felt like a "suit shoe" and I just don't wear suits all that often.

    My immediate thought regarding matching stuff is grey pants, but I plan to wear them with all my non-navy pants. And maybe the navy pants too. I don't have a navy belt so I'm pretty much going to be totally winging it. If a navy jacket is versatile, then navy shoes oughta be versatile too, right?

    It's not like #menswear is going to approach me on the street and chastise me anyway.

    Yes. FWIW I wear my dark chili belt with Oxbloods and find that it matches nicely.

    You may also want to try different lacing. My 5 last AEs seem more comfortable and appear to have a smaller v-gap when I use something other than bar lacing.
