    Repost as thread was moving too fast and my enquiry did not get picked up:

    Hi Guys,

    Should I go for a Brown or Bourbon Strand? Need your advice!

    Here's my current AE rotation:

    Park Ave in Black
    McAllister in Merlot
    Rutledge in Burnished Walnut
    Townleys in Brown Cordovan
    New Orleans in Walnut
    Neumora in Black
    Neumora in Brown
    Elgin in Tan
    Neumok in Olive Green
    RL Saunders in Tan
    Daltons in Grey

    Non AE:

    Edetal Wholecut Medallion in Walnut
    Tod's loafer in Walnut

    I really like the Strand in Brown as I feel it's a very subtle, underrated style that exudes quality.
    I also like how the toe box polishes up in some of the photos here.

    On the other hand, the Strand is the only style in Bourbon which I like and that's the only shade not yet included in my rotation.
    However, I also can't stand how the burnishing rubs off so easily with just a little renovateur or clear saphir cream polish, this makes them rather difficult to condition.

    What do you think?

    The PTB is the Ralph Lauren Marlow.

    I have Alden #8 for BB with matched eyelets and black sole edge, so I want to shoot for the antique/brass eyelets (looks like the only option for the eyelets AE has is a more subtle "antique" eyelets, so I might want to provide those myself) and a chili welt. I was concerned that Alden's cigar is more close to cappuccino, for which AE stock is very limited. I am glad it's more similar to dark brown. This gives me some time to think of it before pulling the trigger.

    Thanks. I thought it was but wasn't sure. It's made by Crockett and Jones, I believe?

    I don't know, 12 pairs really aren't that many pairs around these parts...LOL!

    I get voicemail pretty quickly. Left a message with my number but haven't gotten a call back. Is this the number everyone is using to order?

    Allison is pretty busy but she will return your call, don't worry. You may want to try to call her later today just in case. I spoke with her yesterday and she said they still have enough cappuccino shell for the next few weeks.

    Really shouldn't purchase an MTO in cappuccino right now, but I've heard that once it runs out they won't stock anymore..is that right?

    Oh, I forgot to mention. I bought them all this year. Hahah. To my own defense I've been saving for about two years for a trip to the US so I could get fitted for AE and Alden.
