    The blucher version - 2145 - is more dressy than the balmoral model - 9015? And either of them can be successfully worn more casually than business casual?

    No reason to laugh. I asked the same question about two weeks ago. If you search, you will find a fulsome and generous answer.

    There is a little eccentricity here, but it is an exceedingly cordial - which is very pleasant for the web -- and incredibly informative forum. Just see yesterday's fascinating explanation of the genesis of goodyear-welting and the evolution of its status.

    As to both opinions expressed here - relative dressiness of 9015 v. 2145 and that neither is a chino shoe - this was always my understanding.

    Both are quite lovely shoes. In my humble opinion the balmoral 9015 is better suited for more formal occasions. Have you ever heard it said one should wear bluchers during the day and balmorals at night?

    You are missing my point. As the quote in my post indicated, m question was posed to this thread's esteemed Uncle who opined exactly the opposite of your view and the suggestion of my question.

    And as Mac has already expressed, people of goodwill can agree to disagree.

    No apologies necessary and I am sorry I left that impression.

    I was simply surprised by Mac's views on the subject.

    Awww man, I take one day off and miss a discussion on a topic that I have a keen interest in. Any chance you (or anyone) can point me to the discussion on Goodyear welting? I just tried to find it with no luck.

    Back on point, I agree with your explanation. We don't have to understand all things in life. What I know is that, call it what you may, it is a large part of what makes this site great and the only non-news website I visit everyday. Sometimes you just roll with it. Or better yet, join in on the fun.
