    I bought them from the ShoeBank last month and been wearing them in the office 2-3x a week. They're much more comfortable than my Park Aves.

    Question for you guys if you would be so kind. I have the following;

    Park Ave. black
    Strand. Walnut
    Kenilworth. Bourbon
    Lasalle. Chili
    Dalton. Oxblood

    I'm thinking of getting another pair and am thinking daltons in walnut but I already have the Dalton and a shoe in walnut. I'm wondering if this is the best solution if I want to expand on versatility. I'm not much into penny loafers or tassels. Thoughts? Thanks!

    I think you need a wingtip.
    How about that chili Heritage design they're putting together as a group MTO? Check out the Allen Edmonds MTO thread if you're interested in a first-quality short-wing design for $199.

    Ha! No robe, but they took a shine much better than I expected. Here is the finished product.

    If I had that collection and your preferences, I would add a McAllister. Chili would be good. I would also jump on that MTO mentioned above, if I didnt have a wingtip.

    Jesus would have been an Allen Edmonds fan... Although god himself could never get the 5 last to fit right. :)

    I think that Jesus would definitely approve of a Vibram sole to walk across water.

    That left toe cap would drive me crazy, second or not.

    It's probably just the photo, because looking at it in real life I cannot tell it's a little bit off... Anyone got a protractor? [​IMG]

    Considering what you have, I would consider a short wing bal (the Mcallister is on sale for $279, the Jefferson is not at $389.00) or a long wing blucher (the Mcgregor is not at $385.00). I think the burnished/Bob's/dark chili is the most versatile.

    As others have mentioned, the MTO would be a great short wing for only $199.00! I actually like the shape/size of the Heritage wing better than the other options from AE.

    Bought my first Allen Edmonds today: merlot McAllister and merlot Manistee. Can't wait to get them!

    Also grabbed conditioner, polish, brush, cloth, heel and sole edge dressing (don't know if that's needed, but it's cheap), shoetree, and shoe horn. Did I forget anything? :D

    Agree about needing a wingtip, but I'd say in Brown. McAllister if more formal clothing is worn, MacNeil if not.

    A local store has a pair of AE Strawfut size 7E for $139+tax. It's on the #5 last like Park Aves, and 1st quality, new without box. Can proxy if anyone wants.

    Doesn't the Dalton count as a wingtip?

    Yes, but it's also a boot.

    Full weekend at work [​IMG]

    I got my Daltons today to keep me company. I don't think these are going to be put away until July.
