    Just ordered a pair of Walnut Mcallisters from Kristle at J'Ville for $199. Is that the expected good price?

    That's the regular seconds price for Brooks Brothers models, but $269 is the regular seconds price for the Allen Edmonds versions. It tends to range from $199 to $225 or so during sales. Is there yet another sale?

    First time wearing my brown shell cordovan. They fit exactly like my cambridges which are one width smaller. Would not hesitate to jump on another pair of cordovan in brown in the future. (Excuse the pants) [​IMG]

    Really nice! I've decided that is going to be my next shoe, not necessarily the shell version though, just a brown Strand.

    So, trying to follow the past few days of posts related to shell and sizing. Is everyone saying that cordovan fits the same as their calf counterparts on the same last? Same size calf or shell? I may have gotten confused with the conversation around the Cambridge fitting differently. Thanks.

    Any why exactly navy shoes shouldn't be worn with jeans? This, for instance, is the Land's End exclusive AE Stewart in navy suede worn with the jeans. Looks good, imo.

    It looks passable due to the break created by the cuff and bare ankles. In non staged shots it looks like you are wearing pants with footies

    Agreed. This said though, this would depend on the color of the shoes and jeans. Deep navy, almost black AE Stewarts and, for that, matter, Aldens, navy suede PTB will work just fine with lighter color jeans.

    I've got the Strandmoks in blue, and love them! But my office dress is mostly chinos. [​IMG]

    Thanks guys, I'll pass on the blue shoes as I would only wear them with jeans. I'm slim and chinos don't drape well on me. Do the neumoks work with jeans and wool trousers?

    Neumoks are great for that. Although a McAllister might be better suited for wool pants. Have you tried slim chinos such as dockers alpha, j crew 484, banana republic aiden, uniqlo slim fit etc? Chinos are a staple

    My shell Cambridge seconds arrived today. What do you all think of this creasing in the heel from a structure perspective?

    I don't mind it too much cosmetically, but if it's going to significantly affect the life of this pair, I'm going to return it.

    easy keep for me, unless another pair in better shape was easily available.

    I have a pair of 2nds patriots in brown shell with similar/worse creasing on the back side. never even notice. super happy at the price
