Boys, my white MacNeils are in from Freeman's. 40% off was too much to pass up...

Model: Eagle County


Size: 8.5E


Upper: Golden Brown Chromexcel



Stitching: Contrast, Khaki (to match "Brown with Reverse Smokey Stitch" welt)



Lining: Independence


Insole: Independence




Welt type: Split Reverse


Welt color: "Brown with Reverse Smokey Stitch" of the Wilbert



Edge dressing: Light Brown Transparent



Eyelets: Copper Agatine


Speed hooks: 5-holes/4-hooks instead of 6-holes/2-hooks/1-hole as it comes.


Sole: V-Tread Combination Mini-Lug Tap Sole with Leather Midsole




It should look a bit more casual than I was originally going for, which I'm getting excited about. Uppers should be cut on Thursday.

Two questions-

First, when did you start your MTO process? Must have been recently if they are allowing you to completely change the uppers.

Second, how did you size with the Indy lining? Go with the same width or up one?

Awesome pair. I like that the medallion is totally visible. My MacNeils' medallion goes all the way to the welt and gets a little covered up. I wonder if it's because mine a size 8.5?

 

Either way, those should be a cool white buck or even sneaker alternative.

I think it just varies by shoe.  I have two pairs of Strands, both 8M and the medallions are in noticeably different positions.  Neither looks bad though so I try to ignore it.

These came in the mail yesterday.  I was a little nervous about opening the box after reading comments and reviews on the change in shape and last from the original.  No worries!  I love these boots.  I think they look beautiful.

Just got off the phone with Allison after placing my next MTO: Merlot Burnished Calf MacNeil with V-Tread Tap Sole. Pretty excited!

Hmm.  I wonder if the fact that I ordered 18 pairs has anything to do with that?


18 pairs?  You have 18 pairs of shoes that don't have shoe trees????

AE should really think about changing their website photos...:stirpot:

I will admit I'm a little off my game these days... I had to do some catching up before I found that post.

Agreed.  I'd be curious to learn how your break-in process goes.  My impression of them is that the leather is so super-stiff that breaking them in would be quite unpleasant!
