    Ooh, yeah, the Yorktown is a good look if the last works for you. Sexy shoe also available in Oxblood if that's your preference.

    While I would prefer the Carlyle to the Park Avenue for this too, either would work as long as they're well polished. As little as you wear the PA, I just don't see a need for a second rarely-worn formal black shoe.

    My suede Strands arrived this week, so I thought I should take a family picture.

    While on the subject of formal shoes, here's a picture of my Ritz black patent leather pumps........

    I'm really sorry I missed the boat on those. Your bourbon looks great, too!

    The shoe on the right is the olive Rush Street. They are a little darker than they look in that picture.

    I would go to the shoe bank and get a bourbon or chili shoe, like a fifth ave, mcgregor or flatiron.

    Nice. I had not seen that shoe chart before, and was unaware that the cap-toe was that acceptable for black tie. Thank you, mreams99, you have absolutely helped me free resources that will be better spent elsewhere.

    Roycru, those pumps look great.

    Have a great remainder to your weekend, gentlemen!

    I purchased a Bourbon Strand - color is a little too greenish for me. It's going to be returned with a couple others soon.

    I LOVE my bourbon Strands. The coloring is great.
    You might be able to tone down some of the greenish tint with a shoe cream that has some reddish tones to it. I have a jar of "brick" Meltonian shoe cream that comes to mind.

    The newer "chili" is the same as "dark chili".
    Those look great!

    Yours look darker than mine. The only other problem with mine is that the V gap is much bigger on one side than the other, probably why they were seconds.
