I snapped this shot yesterday. I had many compliments on these. I used VSC on the before wearing. This morning after a day in the wild I polished them with a neutral wax polish, really made the shine. Here they are today.

I will conservatively use VSC on the wrinkles so the neutral polish does not appear in that milky color.

That's hilarious!

Any suggestions on how to relieve the large amount of squeaking noise that is coming from my Daltons? I have tried three different pairs and they all squeak while I walk, like the leather is rubbing against each other.

 

I was told by AE that saddle soap is an option, anyone else had this same problem? What was the remedy?

 

Thanks,

Yea I'm like 1 for 8 with those shoebank shoes. I'm not even being picky. They sent mismatched sizes, mismatched widths, shoes with excess material, etc. I would be happy with most of the shoes that I see being posted here, including the slightly crooked captoes, scuffs, couple mis-stitchings, etc, but nope, I get the ones that are made on different lasts or diferent sizes that are too narrow for one foot and wide for another. I've given up on seconds.

At that stage they need a new category called fifths

I wanted to get a pic in the sun of my brown colored cordovan to show some differences but sadly it was a cloudy day. I will try and grab another one the next time I am home with the sun shining bright. Here is the pic on a cloudy day anyways.

 

L to R:

RL Lindrick Boot

AE Dark Brown Cordovan Dundee

AE Cappuccino Bayfield

Damn I feel for you guys with bad luck. I have now bought 4 pairs of seconds and each were damn near flawless. The last pair, brown cordovan Dundee, didn't even have a seconds stamp on them.

Is the right shoe cordovan? If so, stop complaining. biggrin.gif

I think this belongs on the MTO thread.

I will take more pics tomorrow. I love he extra burnishing. It gives them he exact look I wanted, like a To Boot New York Lincoln, only with AE quality. smile.gif

 

 

These turned out quite well. They end up looking like a much more expensive boot and the last shape gives them a bit of a Northampton feel/look to me.

 You would think that AE would get a clue and put something like this in production!

Also, what they've done in the past is an honor system, where they would give you the $35 credit on the webiste if you pledged to donate a pair of shoes. I always thought that was a really nice show of trust and customer service.

thanks for the info!

 

yeah, it seems like a great organization... online credit would be great, I'm sure i'd use it eventually and even if I don't i've got plenty of good shoes that I don't often wear. It's cool that they give you $35 even though the shoes probably wouldn't sell for that much, it shows that AE really wants to help out instead of just getting people to buy more stuff IMO.

I haven't tried it yet, but I've read that sprinkling some talc in the area producing the squeak can eliminate the problem.

One of my pairs of Daltons were squeaking. In my case it just took time and patience. The squeaking gradually went away after wearing them 1-2 times a week for a couple months.

Have been getting compliments about this pair of jermyns and wonder why this is a closeout style. The brogue design and tassels make this pair really stylish.



Very nice shoes and nice style overall!

Great looking shoes! I love my Walnut Jermyn's so much, I was toying with the idea of ordering up Chili MTO!
