And Natural and Dark Dark Brown! ;)

 

Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if they don't make new numbers for these since they're similar to MTOs, but we'll see.

I checked my Truffle McAllisters the other day and they match what is there

I did mine as a MTO and not the Webgem. Correspondingly, according to my invoice, the model number listed is 7605. Unfortunately, I am not at home and none of the pics that I have on my phone show the inside of the shoe, so I sadly can not confirm that is the number printed in the shoe.

Wearing my brown shell Dundees today, awesome chukka and some great rolls developing on them. Has become on of my favs from AE even though I never even initially wanted a pair. My SA convinced me to give it a shot and I've never looked back.

I would guess that the Dark Brown Shell will resemble the right most pair. But that is just a guess.

Burgundy shell > dark brown shell IMO

Thanks @stro

 

Much to my surprise, 3 medium shoe trees showed up from Jos A Bank today.  Ordered them on Sunday during the 66% off sale, and they said backordered until late November!  A couple of local shops stepped up and mailed these, so I am quite appreciative.  These should fit the Bleeker Streets better.

 

And now for a math problem: I have 4 pairs of AE's and now 5 correct size shoe trees (plus 2 large ones, one of which appears to fit my Black Hills fine).  How many additional pairs of AE shoes should I buy? :teach:

 

P.S. Good luck to KC tonight!

Received the oxblood postcard... shows a dalton, strand, and a few others..other half is bobs chili....def a little annoyed I could not order this during the sale for the bleeker in it. Clearly it was ready to roll out

Seems bobs chili is reached by using dyes while the oxblood is attained by Burnishing cherry calf leather....

They were clearly holding back this color and a number of new styles until after the sale was over.

Pretty color, but it looks a little on the purplish, #8 side. I though oxblood was supposed to be quite a bit darker and muddier.

Probably a good thing for me.

But recent Gmto orders here at SF have been billed when the shoes ship, so it could go either way...

SF affiliation may add a modicum of trust, hence the generous bill-when-shipping policy.

Same here. I wanted to get a pair of brown shell PAs during the RDA sale. Local store did not have any shell, so I had to order them, have them made. They told me it will take about six weeks. They charged my CC and it already hit the account. I figure it doesn't matter, as I expect I'll be able to return them if there is a problem.

Does anyone have a picture of some well broken in cordovan Patriot loafers?

Stopped by my local store to get some laces size some Gridirons I got for a song from Macy's had different ones. Saw they had out some Oxblood.



Next to Merlot

I've got a pair of walnut Rutledge's on the way and share your concern. I've been searching this thread but I'm curious... did you find a solution that works for you to keep yours shined while maintaining the burnish?  Are you able to share photos?  Appreciated.

Whatever you do, don't use Saphir Renovateur. That'll strip the burnishing right off.
