Wearing cappuccino cordovan Bayfields today, these get at least 1 wearing a week in my rotation at the moment. I can't wait to work some loafers back into the rotation though, weather is finally starting to show signs of spring here.



Those are sweet boots! I really like them. Reminds me quite a bit of the boots in Bakes's icon.

Finally returned from abroad and came home to these lovelies. Posted the only "defect" I can see. Quite happy with my seconds.

I love my McAllisters, but they're such a pain to polish compared to my other shoes (especially Kenilworths).  The polish gets caught all up in the holes and in the edges of the many flaps, and, worse, I feel as though when I buff it with a cloth I'm tearing up the decoratively-serrated leather edges.

+1 My brogue-less shoes are so much easier to polish.

Use less polish.   I use a thin coat of Saphir polish for my brogues and have no issues with polish in the holes.  It is a pain in the ass, though, to buff right up against the serrated edges.

The only place I have an issue with polish in holes is on the medallions sometimes. Not usually the larger holes. The serrated edges are a pain.

Could someone please identify this pair of Allen Edmonds? It appears to be a two-eyelet pebble grain model. image.jpg 84k .jpg file

That's a very handsome shoe. If you ever find out the name and production year, let me know.

Its like the leeds with two eyelets. Interesting!

Any one have any feedback on To Boot NY? For nice shoes all I really own are a bunch of AE's and a few vintage pieces and some handsewn Sebago's. The below is what I wanted to have the Mora 2.0 done like with an MTO but was told it could not be. I wanted that in bourbon but also need a straight brown shoe so though this might fit the bill. Sorry if this is the wrong thread to post but I only have AE shoes for reference and figured you guys would know the deal.

They are very nice looking.  You may want to post those numbers inside the shoes.  They may help others in helping you identify the model for them
