    They don't sound first quality to me. The sole should not have any signs of wear in my opinion. I would probably overlook discolorations that you can't see when the shoe is laced. Heck, I have a pair in walnut that had a little discoloration on one of the toes, but after a few polishings and wearings, I'm the only one who can see it. I pointed it out to a friend yesterday and he claimed he couldn't anyways.

    Hats off to the New Allen Edmonds!

    Do these boots and pants go together? I'm having a hard time with what color to wear with burgundy pants.

    I think those are okay. Blue suede would look good.

    Yeah I would normally wear them with grey suede wingtips, but it's cold as hell out.

    Nice. They look good. Those Dalton's definitely are something, though.

    Thanks! I'm trying to get away from my standard chippewa service boots and levi 511s autumn standby.

    Shoe recrafting

    I have found a pair of Allen Edmond Strands at a consignment shop for $27. They have been to a cobbler for repair. Do you think Allen Edmonds can recraft them? Looks like they have had new soles. Any tips what I should look for to determine condition issues?

    I know that this question has been asked many times on this forum, but I have some slightly specific parameters in mind so figured it was worth asking again.

    I'm trying to expand my tie selection beyond the standard navy and burgundy (I wear a tie maybe half a dozen times a year so haven't really needed to buy more than a handful so far). Looking for colors that would work with your standard navy/charcoal suit + white/blue shirt combinations. I'd also prefer to avoid anything that's too bright or patterned (stripes or dots are fine though).

    What would be the most versatile colors? How about something like this: https://www.thetiebar.com/product/32465

    Or this? https://www.thetiebar.com/product/TIE-1330-0279

    That's a summer tie, so it's not especially versatile. Are your going for a preppy, Southern-trad look? Tie trends are more muted right now, so you might consider a darker green.
