I don't get why they discontinued oxblood for the McAllister but kept it for the Fifth Avenue. I think that the classic AE combination for those styles would be this:
Dark brown or dark chili FA
Walnut (or bourbon/copper) Strand
Oxblood or merlot McAllister
Sure, it's not a biggie to switch out the FA and the McAllister, but the most classic option was burgundy for the full brogue, not the quarter-brogue.
Not sure what is the traditional version but oxblood FA are amazing looking.
I am not sure if you missed my post and accompanying chart from the other day but I posted them again below for reference; the original post has more detailed notes. It is actually the Oxblood 5A and McAllister that appear to have been discontinued with the color remaining in the PA and Strand. (I might be going against SF norms but I refer to the Fifth Ave as 5A because when I read FA, I think of the First Ave boot.)If you ask me, oxblood is going to look better than dark chili on any model.
Another huge drop on AE site. Considering between https://www.allenedmonds.com/shoes/mens-boots/lace-up-boots/higgins-mill-weatherproof-boot-with-chromexcel-leather/3729-090-D.html And https://www.allenedmonds.com/shoes/mens-boots/chelsea-boots/liverpool-chelsea-dress-boot/7523-065-E.html...
