 Also the wingtip is a little different with the Macgregor not having the point protrude as far.  And, if the picture is to be believed, the Macgregor's sole is more tightly cropped to the shoe.
 I cannot decide if I like that tie.  I like the colors, but am undecided about the medallions/pattern. I really liked 121 and woud love to see that one make a return.
 I agree there have been some great silks that have gone out of stock and some not so great ones that are still sitting there.  I've asked David about the dwindling number of Maclessfields.  His response was that he will add new silks at some point in time, but will not be restocking the older out-of-stock ones I asked him about.
 If you get the midnight, get the piccolo.  It's slightly lighter than the fina midnight, which is a little dark.  That's funny, I look at ties the exact same way.  When I look at Shibumi, Vanda, Henry Carter, etc., I always look at whether there is something special or unique enough about the tie to justify purchasing it instead of a comparable Hober (if there is one).  As Hober's selection of Macclessfields has dwindled, it's getting easier to look elsewhere, though.
 I plan on having both.   I've got bitter chocolate, burgundy, forest green, midnight navy blue and charcoal silver and find them versatile and useful across a wide range of jackets.
 Different lasts.  The Sanderson is on the 2 last and the Macgregor is on the 5 last.
   No, the corporate membership card discount does not stack.  The best stacking you can get is 30% off the Brooks Buys (30% off the 2 suits for $X deal; 30% off the 3 shirts for $Y deal, etc.) during the Corporate Incentive sale.
Steve:  is that 5 eyelet chukka available on any lasts other than Rain?
   I'm with Kahuna on this one.  I've never been a fan of the MacNeil, but the aesthetics of the McGregor and the 5 last make it very appealing to me.  Besides, don't worry about the stock model, because we're going to do a GMTO of this one in burgundy shell with a double JR sole, right? 
How casual are your jobs that you have no need for a pair of brown shell Strands?  I wear brown shell wingtips on my more casual days all the time.  Granted, casual for me is trousers with a jacket and no tie, but I would have to imagine a jeans only work environment to even entertain such thoughts.
