Maybe a bit odd coming from me, but that suit is -LOUD-. I think it'd be better as just a jacket, personally
We will just have to see what it looks like in person. Wearing it with like a navy turtleneck and a navy pocket square would probably quiet it down a tad bit.


But I love loud suits as long as they don't look cheap and loud. I don't wear suits for work or high society or anything of that sort, so being a bit more bold for casual wear is fine in my book.

My custom-sole (JR) tan nubuck Strandmoks are apparently shipping any day now... Looking forward to seeing these puppies!
I did the same upgrade. Delivery notice says they are home waiting for me on the porch. Any idea if the nubuck is pre-treated for water? I have a ton of rain in the forecast tomorrow and reaaaaly want to wear them.

I had the same thought. Jacket on its own is pretty sweet. But, it is all about the swagger. Maybe he can pull off the entire suit!

Thank you all for waiting; this was actually very hard! Be prepared to NOT see some of my pairs I bet you expected. (Those of you who even thought twice about me saying I'd post this.) And now, in some order, I present to you madhat's Top 5 Allen Edmonds of his collection:

Brown Bowery
I'm sure y'all are sick of me singing their praises, but here they are. Sure, they're difficult for me to work into my regular rotation. Sure, they're not an elegant shoe. But, there's just something about the moto boot look, combined with the excellent red-brown waxed suede, and a very utilitarian commando sole.

Walnut Liverpool
One of my most complimented pairs. The walnut just draws looks. I've got better fitting pairs, but they're just so easy to throw on. Plus, I can't be the only one who wanted Beatle Boots in his youth...

Acorn Suede Higgins Mill
First GMTO. Such a fantastic color! I know the clear translugs don't last, but they look cool. Comfortable, though a bit bulbous. Third time's a charm!

Sand MDxAE Chukka
Full grain unlined suede on single butyl soles. Leather socks? Just a great shoe at a great price.

Brown Shell Higgins Mill
Brown shell. Leather soles. Indy lining. *chef kiss*

"and a little more"???
Ready for winter. Just received my waxed Higgins Mill. Had these made up on olive Dainite. I am one of those who really don’t mind that sole, except for the slipperiness on wet tile.
i like the look though.

Does anyone know if there is a thread devoted to Wolverine 1K's? I got tired of searching the Streetwear and Denim threads after about 15 minutes so thought I would just ask here, as the AE thread people seem the most knowledgeable on the entire SF
Did a search. This was all I could find

Guys, chili shell cordovan looks incredible. The color is amazing, better even than the photos shown off during the show. This pair fits me perfectly, just like the pair in shaved shell, and the craftsmanship is fantastic. The welt/edge and stitching on this pair are some of the best I've ever received.

Only noticeable flaw is that there's a pretty big uneven ridge on the toe caps. Other than that, they're impeccable. Not going to affect me from keeping these but I'm wondering what you fellow weasels think about these.

Maybe it is the angle, but the stitching on the welt around the toe would drive me crazy. it looks way off. It looks all kinds of wacky and would means seconds pricing at a minimum, and I am extremely accepting of flaws.

Tuesday. Brown CXL Higgins Mills with new darker green LL Bean five pocket cords, Lands’ End chambray shirt and donegal lambswool sweater, AE Central Ave belt, Schott NYC tweed car coat.

Also, I bought a pair of boots today. Hoping I like them because they cost me a pretty penny.
