Especially since they now seem to manufacture their shell shoes upon order. Not a whole lot of inventory concerns.

 

If they used the existing cap toe / eagle county as the foundation model for shell mto program, total effort to launch would be minimal.

 

I would guess that the lack of Bayfield is to funnel buyers to the Dalton, but, they both appeal to me for different reasons.

 

If shell is generally casual material in general, then the Long Branch may be a better fit than the Dalton for shell.  The larger holes in the brogueing on my Long Branch enhance the brown shell more than the burgundy shell Daltons perforations imo.

 

The Bayfield had the larger brogue holes like the Long Branch, imo, making it a great choice for shell.

 

AE seems to be expanding the stock mto program, so it could be that ... if they find they can make consistent profit ... a wider range of options will follow.  

 

Those of you who enjoyed the $190 mto boot era were very lucky, but, most of our closets have room for a few exact-specification items, even at full price +mto.

I'd love if they were to make a promontory point without that awful football skin.

Costco is dangerous...I could easily fund a pair or two of AE's every time I walk through that door :censored:

There were a ton of MTOs of this boot when doing so was free.

Personally, while I don't like the football leather on the boot, but love it on the Duke loafers (which, as it turns out, I'm currently wearing). It's a great texture for casual wear, especially shorts.

Having someone in Minnesota scout out new styles would be useful... Volunteers? smile.gif

From the pictures I saw via Googling, Mcgregor appears to be short wing. No?

There used to be a shoe called the MacGregor which was a short wing. The spelling this time is definitely different. The SA told me the new shoe is a long-wing, but that's all I know.

Those brown suede bals are quite nice looking (above). Anyone have a suggestion on a low-priced chocolate brown suede option from AE (preferably in a 9.5D in the outlet? smile.gif

Also--they Portlands in Bourbon at $197 just seem like a great boot for the money. Any reason to hesitate?
Same with the chocolate Cambridge closeoits. $137 I think? Almost feel guilty not buying them!

Got it. Thanks.

I just picked up some cordovan Leeds for a good price. Is there any way to tell if they've been recrafted? Not that it matters much but I'm just curious.

Paul told us on the MTO thread (or maybe AAAC, I can't remember) that it was going to be a shortwing blucher. So I would go with that.
