 Yep.  Recently I sold a pair of shell boots to someone.  FedEx dropped them off on his front doorstep and he claimed they then disappeared.  PayPal had my back, and ultimately (about a week later) FedEx somehow tracked them down and redelivered them, but it's not an experience I care to repeat.  Signature and insurance ever since.
 Indeed.  I believed there was the real possibility that I would be out $1,400.  At least FedEx ultimately did the right thing.
 Custom.  Three Blake chukkas - one in green shell, the others in Color 8 and navy CXL. I haven't posted pics because FedEx misdelivered the package.  It took many weeks for them (FedEx) to finally fork over the reimbursement, after which the replacements were put into production.  Hopefully they'll arrive in the next week or so. As always, Rancourt CS was exemplary during the ordeal.
[[SPOILER]]  I concur.  Here are my "brown" McTavishes:  At the time, Julie, the Shoe Bank SA who sold them to me (and is a long-time AE'er), opined that they are something of a unicorn, but I feel like I've seen them quite a bit lately, so maybe they're not as rare as all that. 
 Here are my MTO MacNeils in brown CXL.  I went with a topy but obviously something commando-like would work too: 
 My last order (in August) was three weeks from placement to shipping.  YMMV, of course.
 So that store only is still honoring RDA prices today . . . I wonder if they'll accept phone orders?
 Only about 10 of the pairs are dress calf, and I wouldn't wear any of them any more than a few times per year, so - not very often!
 Nah.  40 pairs doesn't count the Aldens, Rancourts, Carminas, etc.  
It's not often that I pull out dressy calf bals on the 5 last . . . but when I do I'm reminded why they're an AE perennial:     This is why it's hard for me to get rid of any of my shoes, even with as many pairs as I have (just counting AEs, around 40).  I might not wear these McAllisters more than a couple times a year, but when I want to wear them, I'm glad they're there!
