Help me decide between this:
allenedmonds_shoes_grayson_bourbon_m.jpg
Grayson in bourbon or

This:allenedmonds_shoes_patriot_brogue-suede_m.jpg
Partriot loafers

However the catch is that grayson is 240 and its a factory second however the patriot is 200 in clearance.

I really like the bourbon tasseled loafers however its a second.

I dont know what to do!

Edit:or should i buy both?

Get a Lakeshore Drive in Bourbon with leather soles MTOd now and you can get a first quality Grayson in Bourbon look-alike (minus the slip beading) for $259. Just $19 more that the 2nds Grayson.

If you prefer the Grayson, get it. Seconds are typically in pretty good shape. If you direly want a loafer, get both.

Deciding on whether to get the MacNeil webgem. How close is the color of cognac to chili calf? Just got the BB chili grain MacNeil and am worried it might be redundant. Is the cognac used in the macneil 5 CXL?

Never thought of that.

My MTOs all have taken about 5 weeks. But I think a super conservative estimate would be 8 weeks (unless they fail an inspection).

X-post from the MTO thread but thought you guys might be interested in some more photos in here.

 

Took some Reno to the MTO Cappuccino Bayfields that I bought form Ryden, after a bunch more AE polish came off they are turning into a wonderfully rich and beautiful color. For the first time I am really seeing the difference between the Dark Brown and Cappuccino cordovan. AE had caked so much stuff on both my Dundees and Bayfields that originally they both looked quite similar. Now when seen in the sun the brown has a brownish/olive undertone and the Cappuccino is revealing such an awesome red undertone. I will see if I can find my Nikon and take some picks tomorrow in the sunlight.

 

BTW: Let me know what you think of the Alden laces, I am not sure they work as well. The Bayfield eyelets are quite far apart. I am going to give them a few test wearings and see if I like them.
