I have no objection to AE generally, and I do have a few AE models, shell and calf. That said, the Dalton has never appealed to me. IMO, the undersized wingtip throws the boot off balance aesthetically. Further, to my eye, the toe box lacks sufficient height for that style of a boot. To each their own.
^^ PP ties some of the best FIH knots. The consistency, the dimple, etc., are exquisite. However, the FIH has its limitations (all the various knots potentially do). For the most part, IMO, FIH will not work with a cutaway or wide spread collar. The knot simply isn't large enough to fill the gap. A half windsor will typically work.
