Bruno Magli feels like a much higher quality leather, softer, and the Maioco is more elegant, but the AE Park Ave fits better. I don't want to buy the lower quality shoe and regret it. Does AE make a higher quality line with better leather? Is the Park Ave the best shoe for days when wearing a suit or blazer? I ask because the AE shoe that looks the best to me is the strand in walnut. Would it be a faux pas to wear the walnut strand with a suit? Too bad the Strand does not come in merlot at Nordstrom. That would be a beautiful color that would go with anything.
