I hate to ask this so late, but I seem to recall seeing a picture of the brown grain that were much, much lighter, almost walnut-esque. I'm trying to decide between the shades, but that picture of the brown looks very close to the merlot ECs i just received, so I probably would lean towards the chili.
Am I crazy or did someone post lighter brown grain a bit ago?
Would someone with Bleecker Streets and Fifth Streets please compare the height of the two shoes and possibly snap a few pics of them? I know they are rather different in style, but I don't think I need more than one pair between the two.
When I asked a few days ago, Allison told me the outlook was "mid to late November." I didn't bother inquiring further as to why that was the case, as my bank account is currently being decimated by bourbon and boots.
The "brown" Bleecker Street seconds I purchased just yesterday arrived today. Unfortunately, like someone else here recently had happen, they are actually bourbon. Not only is the color of the leather decidedly bourbon- I can see the walnut on non-visible portions of the tongue- but they also have the black welt and edge color that the walnuts come with. Huge bummer as there are no other BS seconds in brown anywhere near my size. I'm hoping for some kind of awesome miracle...
I shot Allison an email asking about doing a Bleecker Street in brown grain. Here's her response:
The Bleeker Street would be $395.00 plus a custom fee of $110.00(maximum). The custom fees are now prorated depending on what you want to change about the shoe. If you only want change the color of the leather the custom fee would be $80.00.
Looks like more things are changing in the MTO realm.
