    Nice, I purchased the tan Mcs but was surprised how nice the black ones looked in the store.

    Do many of you often wear black McTavishes with business casual dress? I have a pair, and so far, I have only worn them with jeans.

    Congratulations on the Strands. I am about to give in and order a pair of Strands in the brown calf.

    I believe those are a pair of vintage Cliftons. I saw an almost identical pair on EBay recently. At some point in time, the Clifton was apparently a balmoral.

    The fatigue color is ugly as anything; but I am liking the ones for 92 (burgundy/blue/olive) Thanks!

    Personally I have had trouble with Fryes in the past - the leather dye kept bleeding onto my socks. Why not AE shoes? They are made much better - worth the extra cost.

    Because the guys on the Frye appreciation thread said not to buy AE's due to problems with seconds being passed off as firsts. [​IMG]

    Well they don't know what they are talking about. I have owned a number of Frye boot/shoes over the years - they don't compare to AE. Not even close.

    Maybe they're the Van Ness?

    edit: Nope, just noticed the heel is different.

    For the price, they're fantastic...at least the couple pairs I own (the black w/ natural edge trim and a white wingtip with natural edgetrim). They aren't AE's, but I think they're much better than any of the other major mass-market shoe brands (J&M, CH, Florsheim, etc). I own over ten pairs of AE's so, I obviously love them, but some of the James wingtip models are pretty unique.
