    Has Allen Edmonds ever made a burgandy plain toe (blutcher or balmoral) in calf skin?

    What color are these Fairfaxes on the left?

    I was at Nordstrom Rack today and came across them (the right is Chili, which I actually own). At first I was thinking they were Walnut, but it looks a bit too light/yellow for what I've seen online as Walnut. It looks like "Squash" but I realize that's not an actual AE color.

    Here's another closeup of just the shoe in question:

    I actually think it's a beautiful color, although I'm not sure it'd go with anything in my wardrobe.

    I really like that color. Are you able to see the code on the inside. You can identify the color from the code. I would totally rock those!:slayer:

    Those look like a lighter shade of cognac to me. I have the Manhattan's in cognac, and while mine are a bit darker, they have a similar hue.

    Unfortunately I forgot to check the code inside! I'm already at home, but if I'm at the mall again soon I'll stop by and check. Unfortunately they only had these in 9D, which is too small for me!

    To DJJ: good idea, they might be a "faded" or lighter cognac . . . I'm really not sure. But I agree that they are absolutely beautiful and I wish they had my size . . . I would probably buy them and force them into my rotation any way I could.

    I believe the AE color is chestnut. I own a pair of AE Hillcrest in chestnut, and the coloring was very similar until I began darkening them with walnut polish.

    Nice, how much did you pay for yours? How did he get them that color? I only saw black and natural.

    I have the AE Sutter in burgundy. It was part of the Executive Collection and is not available any more. I think they used to make the Leeds in burgundy calf, I'm not sure though.

    Thanks. I believe I paid about $270; retail minus a minor discount. These are the natural Mctavish and I love the color. The only thing I've done to them was use one of those leather conditioner sponges on it once, and of course, wear them.

    Love the Grayson's, but the 7 last works very well on my foot, in every shoe I've tried. The graysons fit well, come up high enough that they can be worn a little more formally, and seem to wear very well also. That particular pair is about 1.5 years old. I wear the same size in Grayson as MacNeil and Park Ave.

    I like them better than the Westchester, I just don't like the low vamp look of the Westchesters.

    Awesome, thanks for the heads up! Maybe I'll go ahead and buy those Elgins on Amazon . . . $245 plus free shipping (Amazon Prime) isn't bad . . .
