I'm very confused. The top is a bayfield custom cordovan and the bottom is also a Dalton custom cordovan? I didn't know they would do that. Seeing as the Dalton is 675 for Walnut cordovan, did you have to pay a premium on top of that for the brown cordovan?

I think the bayfield is burgundy shell (nice!), and the Dalton is their walnut shell.

The Bayfield is in Burgundy cordovan. They are for sale on eBay. The Dalton is in Walnut cordovan. They are on my feet.

Thankfully the Bayfields were too big for me. They run TTS as a size 11 D.

So is the Shoe Bank in WI the only outlet that carries seconds? Is there a list of other AE outlets that have this promotion?

The Bayfield is extremely sweet. If they were 11 B they would be mine.nod[1].gif

Check the AE website - all the outlets have the same promotion.

So, while everyone is focused on shell.  Would anyone care to comment on the differences in sizing and fit of shell vs. calf?  I've never tried a dress shoe in shell.  I'm curious to know if you notice a difference in comfort, break in, etc.

Shell is stiffer, takes longer to break in, and won't stretch as much as calf.  In other words, it should probably be better fitting to begin with.  There are numerous stories of people getting bunyans from shell shoes.  That being said, my pair of shell strands fit spectacularly and are probably the most comfortable pair of shoes that I own.

My experience exactly. I am one of those that got bunions from shell but also from the AE Shelton polished cobbler leather which is also very stiff with little give.

Got my burgundy shell MacNeil seconds today. Overall, pretty good. There looks to be a little bit of crooked stitching on one of the arches on the vamp; some minor surface abrasion on the vamps (which I think I can brush out; we'll see); and a barely visible "cut line" impression on both shoes. I'm not sure what this is, but it almost seems like an impression about an eight of an inch in from where the leather was cut. You can see it in the third photo.

Main shot. Minor toe creasing, although it appears the shoes have never been tried on and never laced: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Odd "cut line" impression - see just below brogue stitching. Very faint, but seems to encircle the entire piece of leather on both shoes: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I think for seconds these are probably OK. I haven't tried them on yet, as I'm going to let them sit for few days while I decide.

Also, anyone know what the little shoe stamp means? Does it signify seconds?

Dunno about the shoe stamp, but it looks cool.  Nice buy!

post #3719 of 70737
