    Try the new Larchmont, in dark brown. It's a nice looking shoe, and would give you another blutcher alternative.

    Regarding the 5th street, I am not convinced on It's ability to work conservatively with a suit. It is a boot aftet all, maybe some real life pics will serve to solidify It's validity.

    I just looked at it and like it in dark chocolate. How does the 3 last compare to the 5?

    McAllister is also available in Merlot which is a very nice color. And the Cambridge is available in Burgundy. Both seem like good choices.

    True, but since he was missing a brown shoe, a brown wingtip made sense as well. All the options are good ones.

    If they are discontinuing the 5th street, I hope they replace it with a similar dress boot on the same last. I was never able to pick up the 5th streets due to needing a C width.

    It might be a while, but I will post. I am also thinking about a blue suede PA; it's a little bit more versatile.

    Do you know what shade of blue you want (not sure if there's a certain hue you have to choose).

    I'm not sure either. Probably navy like the Players Shoe (which I hope to try on later this month). I'm guessing I will have to pick a leather they already offer. But I will find out. I like it because if I want something like a Dalton in brown shell or tan suede, they'll do it. I just have to pay for it and wait.

    **EDIT**

    Likewise, if you missed a WebGem like the cappucino shells, you can probably still order it custom. Expect to pay an additional $125 though.

    I'm not ready to repeat styles yet. Mabye a Larchmont or Strawfut in a darker brown than the walnut.

    Hey guys.. I work in a business casual environment. Is the strand (walnut) to dressy of a shoe to wear to work?
