    Is is ok to mix tweeds? I picked up these brown donegal trousers for a song NWT off e-bay a while back http://www.orvis.com/p/county-donegal-tweed-pants/57ey Now I've been eyeing the JCF navy tweed sportcoat http://factory.jcrew.com/mens-clothi...5998/05998.jsp would it be ok to pair the two together w/ a white or light blue OCBD or would there just be too much texture going on? I really like the jacket & think I will pick it up regardless and pair w/ denim, wool trouser, & even cords but just wonder if tweed in two colors can be pulled off? Thanks.

    I feel like I'd have to see them side-by-side in person. It could be doable, but might look a bit weird if the overall scale of the pattern/texture is too similar on the two items. It's usually good to have a little bit of texture or pattern contrast between an odd jacket and trousers.

    LBD: Yeah, that is how I feel everytime I look at the web images. I think you can only tell in person. I am leaning toward picking it up to wear with other pants so if it turns out it does work with the brown tweed also added bonus. Thanks for the input.

    Question: pair of new AE Shaker Heights boots (well new about a month ago, and since they have reduced the price by $50 grrr) and am storing them until my wedding in October. I have shoe trees in them but am worried about pulling on the unbroken-in leather. Am I just being crazy? Should I creme them (chili red) and store?

    In conclusion, my question is "how should I store them?"

    Thanks y'all

    YFL, I would probably break them in a bit before your wedding. That is a long day on your feet for new shoes. Wear them around the house, at the very least.

    Following up on this for @dvg , I just picked up two pair of Aiden's this weekend. $70 total after the deal in store and I am happy with them. Good fit for me and the feel of the fabric is nice. They only had 4 colors int he store but that covers the basics anyway. Dark grey, light tan, dark tan, and navy. If these hold up through a wash or two then I wont hesitate to get the other 2 colors when it comes to that time. Wish they offered a lighter grey or burgundy as well.

    a.) They hold up well in the wash. I don't machine dry them though.
    b.) I'm almost positive I've seen them in burgundy either online or in-store at some point.

    @bjmcgeever I did a search on the site and they have two different listing for the Aiden. Looks like regular colors and some less mainstream options. Olive, brighter blue, orange, and a deep wine color. Might have to try the bigger BR at Lenox. Thanks

    The BR near me in Chicago had both the olive and burgundy/wine in the store. Some of them, at least, are not online only.
