All excellent choices.
Formal: either one
Casual: Strand or Sanford; definitely not Park Ave; probably not Fifth Ave
I wear a 10.5 D(M) PA and Strand, what size would you recommend for the McTavish?
I was thinking of ordering on amazon a 10.5 D(M) and a 10 D(M) just in case since they have the free return policy.
Excellent collection, and they appear well maintained as others have pointed out. Depending on climate, perhaps another rubber soled shoe/boot? Or maybe a light brown loafer for summer/sockless wear?
Thanks for the advice. Actually think I'm going to knock out two birds with one stone - black Park Avenue and brown Sanford. Maybe add walnut or bourbon Strands someday down the road.
Guys what do you thinks the new Kings Point
Unfortunately they only make the Sanford in walnut and black. The walnut is a beautiful shoe though!
Personally, I think it's a mess, too much going on. That's just me though, I'd also like to read other thoughts on it.
I think they would have been more interesting if they didn't have the strap/buckle. As they are, they definitely aren't for me.
I am also in the camp of "nice boot without the strap".
I'm not a fan of the looks with or without the strap. I wasn't a fan of the Cronmok, either, though.
Anyone have any experience with the Feisole's fit? It's not made from a standard last. Anyone see them in person? Can't find any pics and it's hard for me to judge just based on AE's picture. Can't decide. Great price though, 50% off.
It needs to be louder with more brogueing and maybe a shawl and tassels and lose the laces and make it like an Ashbury with a cinch strap. More cowbell.
I like it and might get a pair if the price is right--if I spot a returned /seconds pair at an outlet sometime down the road. I do like the pebbled look and the color of the leather.
I have been looking at these for a few days now and still can't fall in love.
As others have said, I think there is just too much going on with the boot... kind of like it can't decide what it wants to be when it grows up.
I think ordering is open until 12/31 on this, so will give it more time to see if it becomes a match. But for now, probably a "pass" for me.
How about polishing black Jeffersons?
Will Meltonian suffice?
