Now my photo looks really bad!
Here are the Bourbon Strands I got today
But look at the photo in the post above because it is much better!
At first I wanted to just take a quick shot to show the color difference between bourbon and walnut, but later i got carried away and spent 30mins taking the photo.. hahaha.
I've read the the bourbon was just walnut but processed into a darker color, and was afraid of getting two shoes that were too similar. Hope this helps people who are considering having these two colors in the same model.

Anyone have any feedback on the McGraw's? I am thinking of pulling the trigger today. My only reluctance is it's a loafer and I just tried the Presidio with bad results. I know the #2 last is difficult so I'm hoping the #4 is more forgiving. Typically I'm a 10D in the #5 last.
I'm a 7.5E on the 5 last and my TTS is 8D (left foot) and 7.5D (right foot). I'm looking at picking up a pair of Sheltons on the 1-511 last. I know that ideally I'd go try them on but if someone wouldn't mind giving me some guidance on this last what would you recommend if I'm 7.5E on the #5?
I think it comes down to personal preference. Either single or double sole would look fine on the Kenilworth.
I prefer double-soles pretty much right across the board with AE. They wear longer (obviously) and tend to suit the decidedly less than delicate design of most AE models. I see no downside to the choice here.
