    So it looks like waiting for the Olive Neumoks was a waste of time since they aren't included in the sale offerings. Didn't somebody say they were confident that all colors of the Neumoks would be on sale?

    I wanted walnut McAllister, snuff suede Neumok, merlot belt. Swing and a miss.

    Can anyone gives thoughts on the brown Neumok vs. the dark brown cognac McTavish? Nordstrom sale cost is not a factor as I can get the McTavish for the same price.

    I don't know the personal needs and appearance that you are seeking to fill, but the Cognac McTavish is a substantially nicer and higher quality shoe. Much more bang for your buck.

    Directly from the Nordstrom's site, but I needed to log in with my account in order to see the 'Early Access' sale. I believe you need to be some type of Nordstrom cardholder (debit or credit) to get access before July 19. Then I just filtered by Allen Edmonds.

    I was hoping for a suede Neumok too. I may end up with the brown. I like the McTavish too, but already have that in black. The cognac version looks really nice though, so I may take a trip to Nordstroms for a comparison.

    I currently have Strands in walnut and McAllisters in merlot and love them. I also have brown Amoks on the way. However, I wear dress pants to work specifically so I can wear those shoes (with more dress pants on the way to wear them more often). Other days I wear J. Crew or GAP chinos with suede bucks (grey & blue) or suede wingtips (grey & brown).

    What I was looking for next was something leather that I can wear with those plain front non creased chinos or with dark jeans.

    With all of the sales going on, I decided to finally take the leap and buy my first pairs of AE's. I went with black the McTavish, walnut Strand, and walnut Daltons. I should be set for a while :)

    consider adding some brown to your new collection? You think you're set...but you'll never be. Happy shopping.

    I totally agree with this. All I wanted was a pair of black cap-toe for interview about 9 months ago. Now I own 4 pairs of AEs. This forum is addictive, I may need an intervention [​IMG].

    I still think the Cognac McTavish is the better shoe, and the quality of it above the Neumok is noticeable. However, my original comment still has merit, being that I don't know what appearance you are seeking to fill. The Neumok may well be exactly what suits your style, and that's fine. Both will go well with the pants you have described, but the shoe choice will have a large impact on the finished effect.

    A little weird but those are the exact three items I am interested in, especially the latter two. I haven't given up, though, on my AE guy price matching in colors I want. We'll see.
