    Just got a new pair of McAllisters in merlot and matched them with the Manistee belt:

    Given they are phasing out the bourbon, your choice in AE belts may be dwindling (im guessing). I did see a discounted Manistee in bourbon on the shoebank site (size 38) the other day and I spoke to a SA at one of the outlets who told me they still have the basic dress belt in bourbon. Hopefully others will give you more options.....

    I have both the Fred and the Dalton (in walnut and oxblood) and think you're right. The Dalton is definitely sleeker and more refined than the Fred. That said, I like them both.

    The sneakers are a bit more expensive than I'd like. Still, I think I'm going to swing by a store to check them out. I like the Brisbane.

    Dusted off the Fenway long wings today. I've been debating selling these, as they just don't get worn much. They are my only LWBs, so I've always held on to them until I can replace with a newer model. These were originally walnut, but have a had a few coats of dark chili and cognac, plus navy on the toe. I'm thinking a few more coats of navy and these will be ready...

    I agree with the general consensus so far. Chili seems to be one of the most versatile colors not currently in your rotation and does work with navy/charcoal. The long wing blutcher is also a good idea as you have enough balmorals/captoes and you can rock a LWB with slacks. The McGregor or Macneil should fit the bill depending on size availability and your price range.

    Thanks for the reply.

    One question on belt sizing. I'm a 30 waist size in jeans and normally buy a 34 belt in casual belts.

    Are AE belts sized differently so I should stick to their reco of being a 32? Or are their belts the same size as other belts and I should stick with my usual 34?

    You will love them, but will be afraid to wear them [​IMG]. I keep a extra pair of brown shoes in the car or shoe covers when I will wear these.

    Those look good, keep them. More and more I am considering navy polish for my non-black shoes, it seems like most people prefer it over black polish "burnishing". I am in the process of turning an old pair of Cole Haans into a bourbon, with black and AE bourbon polishes. The blue sets of the cognac very well though.

    Got a sweet pair of Strandmoks on ebay for $80 that look practically new. I went with my standard 5 last size (which is a bit snug on me), will these still fit? If not... I guess I'll insole them for that price.
