If that's the main problem, then I'd keep them.
I think this is fine too. Keep in mind that this part of the shoe (eyestays and the quarters) will be mostly covered by your pants.
Well, the Jefferson, McAlister, and Cambridge are all broged wingtip oxfords on the #5 last but there are subtle differences.
The Cambridge (only available in shell) is a double sole with broging around the "collar" of the shoe.
The McAlister is a single sole with broging around the collar.
The Jefferson is a double sole but has no broging around the coller.
(I have all three )
Sporting my shell Walnut MacNeils today. Man I love these shoes.
Very nice, GOP. Can't wait to get my cappuccino.
They look stunning!
Me too, but it won't be until perhaps late November.
I decided on alden burgundy shell boots instead . I guess I've gone over to the dark side.
I think all three of us should be getting our cappuccino shoes right around the same time.....did we all get Macneils? lol
Yep, I think we all got the MacNeils. Whoever gets them first, please post the pictures! Can't wait to see them in flesh.
Thanks for the input, VinnyMac and MacktasticGDogg.
I guess I'll keep them then.
Yup. Was just commenting on the fact that other models in calfskin and shell with similar differences don't have different names (park Ave, macneil, etc.).
Jealous of you for having all three. I'm looking at either Cambridge or Jefferson for my next purchase. Just ordered some shell Macneils so I'll have to wait just a little bit.
Would those burgundy shell boots go with black pants? Burgundy shoes in general really.
imo... black pants = black shoes. always.
I second this. Black pants or suit require black shoes.
IMO merlot is the most versatile color of shoe, though.
Separate names with a comma.
