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.
Look close to my AE Hale's, but maybe not (?).
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.
Hey guys about to bite the bullet on getting my first pair of wingtips... anyone know anything about these FRYE james wingtips?
The fatigue color is ugly as anything; but I am liking the ones for 92 (burgundy/blue/olive) Thanks!
Same as you, however, i wear the McAllisters for business formal/casual
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.
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.
Beautiful photo - how'd you manage that angle, lol?
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.
I googled Allen Edmonds Walnut Strand and looked for the color I am going for :tounge:
No that is not my pic, but I do agree good angle.
