    So true. Even if he doesn't wear it, he needs it.

    It's never too late. Besides I'm thinking this is more of a casual shoe anyway.

    The only reason I bought it is due to the medallions, it's the ultimate brogue Oxford!

    Yep, I think in this case his friends know what's best for him.

    That shoe would look nice.

    However, light Brown/tan oxfords can be tricky, IMO. While I own a few - including the 82 lasted Walcot in Edwardian Antique - I always find myself considering them a contradiction, with the oxford style lending itself to more formal wear, and the light color (and/or broguing) lending itself to more casual wear. First world problems ....

    An Intervention will be in order - if he should even think of declining.

    @dddrees,@leaves, I'm in the Falkirk 6.5 E82 please!

    @sevenfoldtieguy, @rydenfan, @tifosi, the EG thread is definitely looking like the Alden thread... at these price, it's just like a pair of shell Alden (+tax), right? Better QC too, as my recently received pair from Alden shows... another potential return...

    Tax? Who pays tax on shoes??? Haha!

    If this was the Sandringham we were talking about it would be harder for me to resist.
