    Damn, wish I had known about that! Just picked up a pair of Fairfaxes in Chili (as I mentioned a few pages back) at Nordstrom Rack for $209. Also, I wanted to run something by you guys . . . planning on going to two weddings this summer (church ceremony, indoor reception). Have a well-tailored navy suit I plan to wear. Is it inappropriate (from a general public point of view, not necessarily just from a SF point of view) to wear my Chili Fairfaxes? I wore them a few days ago to an evening event for which the dress code was "business" along with my navy suit and got several compliments on them. Would I be out of line wearing these to a wedding? Thanks.

    Edit: FWIW, I also have a matching chili belt.

    The brooks strand wasn't included as part of the 2 for 200 deal, not all models were available. Don't worry! I picked up the BB strands in dark brown 2 weeks ago for 199 and they have quickly become my favorite. Just enjoy them!

    thanks for your info.
    it is strange i have to wait for sometime to post my next reply^^^^^^
    i selected BB strand walnut. in the beginning i went for ae strand. but since it has leather outsole and my job does involving a lot of travelling, finally bought BB strand cos its outsole is partly rubber which is suitable for daily use. is that riight they have different outsole?
    i don't have them now. accoring to ups they will be here tomorrow.

    Looking for an AE model that isn't in production anymore - the Jodox. If you know where I can find it in an 11C, 10.5C or 10.5D please let me know. Thanks.

    I wore a navy suit with walnut lombards to a wedding yesterday. Received lots of compliments and looked great. If you are comfortable wearing it, wear it. You're going to look better than most everyone there anyway.

    I'm wearing very similar shoes in style and color (slightly less formal) to a wedding in a couple weeks. Not saying I'm correct or incorrect doing so, but fuck it who cares.

    Thank you! I apologize for the glare - my blackberry camera takes lousy indoor pictures, so I try to take outdoor whenever possible. Unfortunately lately, that means the early morning (and the glare that goes along with it).

    Nice walnut cordovan Strands, really love the variations in color!
