I already have the blucher in Ravello so would would prefer to get a different model. Ideally, something a little more casual than a wingtip - any suggestions?

Whiskey Longwing. Great for casual wear in spring/summer.

I always thought of it as a little more on the dressier side, but the more I think about it, I think it would well with jeans and other casual wear. Do you know what last it's made on? I was thinking of getting one of the loafers, but didn't think it was worth (for me) the $650.

The split toe was my first whiskey shell, but oddly I'm not too fond of it and have worn it only once or twice. Of the whiskey I own, my favorites are the longwing and plain toe blucher.

I can take them off your hands if you don't like the split toes

Every summer I declare that I'm going to wear them, but then reach for my other shells in whiskey. I'll let you know first if I decide to part with them.

I thought they are #8,I am actually very turned off by all these whiskey and light shell colors. I think #8 is a perfect color and I could wear it every day. I discovered that I need more black, dark burgundy and dark brown shoes.

I also prefer the dark colors, mainly black and burgundy particularly for work.
