    In that case, I'd go for it! They fit the bill perfectly for what you are describing, and you have plenty of opportunity to use them. I agree that the LWB's monks, and McTavish's do better in casual environments. I've become a big fan of AE's Burgundy Shell Cordovan, however, and they're a great deal as seconds on sale. Further, if the outlet from which you are buying is a Tanger Outlet, you may be able to use a 20% coupon for additional savings!

    I have a pair of the Sheltons in burgundy; I'm torn as to it's versatility. I definitely think it works best as a casual or business casual shoe (slacks, etc but no suits). That, of course, is my humble opinion.

    PS - I've never been to Utah but hope to experience that commute some upcoming winter!

    I'm also interested in your comparison. Thanks!

    For the poster that asked earlier, my cobbler charges around $25 for the topys.

    I have the burgundy/black and walnut/brown Shelton and I find the walnut/brown to be very versatile. I've worn it business casual to the office and the other day with jeans and thought it looked nice. Just one man's opinion...

    I'm in Florida for the weekend. And they happen to have an Allen Edmonds store. Thinking about grabbing those daltons in walnut. What does the bourbon look like. What do you guys think. Which is more versatile

    Stopped by the new AE store in midtown manhattan today looking for the Mora 2.0

    They didn't have it and didn't expect it until the end of the month.

    Very nice store...just don't go on hot day. Their A/C hasn't worked all summer they told me. Hot as heck in there. Wow. Dunno how the workers can put up with that.

    Which store is considered the Midtown one? I went to the one on 43rd a few months back and it was warm. What's interesting is that all of their stores are between 43rd and 55th between 6th and Madison. I wish they had a few downtown for my convenience.

    I always find the Boston store on Newbury to be dreadfully hot as well. Does not make for a pleasant experience
