Those suede half-brogues should stay out for Fall, along with at least two of those four pairs of chestnut quarter/half-brogues.

I lol'd. But the narrative is not yet developed enough warrant Mr. Freeman's baritone.

Those suede (RL) are a tad too light for my darker fall wear. Likewise the the chesnut numbers. I holding onto the chili colors and moving on to dark brown suede and calf and zee black color shoes.

That's too bad. Tobacco suede is the perfect accompaniment to medium grey flannel.

Actually, this represents about half of my collection - mostly AE with a smattering of Polo, Peal, and Loakes.

The migration officially ended today.

Ah, a green belt in Aportnoy-fu. I myself am a mere white belt with a measly 20 pair...

^ You guys obviously need some help. See a therapist for your addictions.

Also, send your shoes my way once you guys start therapy. I have summer all year round. I will see to it that the value of your shoes are put to good use in the meantime.
