I have no idea what happened there. I know that people can request extra burnishing on the heel/toe as part of the MTO/SMU program, so maybe these were supposed to have extra burnishing on the toes but not quite as much as they put on, and thus they were returned or rejected?


Very nice. Looking great.

I posted the Dark Chili Strands earlier. Bob's Chili and Dark Chili are the same thing - Bob's Chili is the marketing name for Dark Chili. If you order a pair of shoes in Bob's Chili, they will just say "Dark Chili" on the box. Just like Oxblood is, for marketing purposes, sometimes referred to as "Jose's Oxblood".

Thanks for that clarification. It's confusing with so many names.

With regards to the variations in colors and burnishing, I think it also makes a huge difference with each style. For example, I love my bourbon Strands, but I've seen the bourbon Lowry Hill, and to me it didn't look nearly as good in person. It's like certain shoes look better in some colors than others.

Thanks. Official color is "chocolate" brown.  I'll get a better pix next time.

Figures. There are only Brooks 5th Aves in our size and a Brooks Presidio in 11 3E.

I find the following offering at Brooks interesting, although only in D. Shows the power of the MTO?  Presenting the Linen Carlyle:

Ugh...damn impulse purchases. Going to be perfect for the Derby parties smile.gif

Hook em!

So I'm ordering a pair of McAllisters (as some may recall... thank you all again for the help, and a big thanks to JS!), however I'm worried about the fit. I normally wear a size 11.5 US and for width I'm on the higher side of D (E works in many shoe), however this is my first good dress shoe so I can't be entirely sure my sizing is perfect. Plus I've heard these can run a bit long and narrow.

 

So my questions are:

1. Do these run true to fit?

2. Do you think I should opt for firsts for my first pair since I'll have the option of free exchanges for any size/width until I get my perfect match?

I was planning on getting seconds shipped out tomorrow, but this fitting delima is causing me to reconsider... an extra $60 for gauranteed perfection and finding my perfect fit for my new favorite shoe brand doesn't seem like a bad investment.

I'm still sad that I gave up my pair of Rush Streets in Olive when they were on sale, but these Neumoks are actually more comfortable and were a good bit cheaper. A few imperfections as expected for seconds, but for ultra-casual shoes, I can live with them.

 

 

 

I wonder how they will turn out if one dyes them to medium-dark shades of brown. It would make it quite a deal for $100.

Whoa.  Did AE do that for you, or was it an after-market modification?

11E - and if that works thank me later :)

Hmmm, it's on the 108 last. Not sure how I fit in those, compared to the 65.

 

I wear the same size across those two lasts.

Maiden voyage for the Bourbon Strands today!  :D  I was so used to seeing Walnut in person that I was surprised how "dark" the Bourbon turned out.  12.5D so they have to build them as they didn't have them in stock.  Next on my list McAllister in Merlot and Walnut!

Definitely 11E for the McAllisters if I'm sized at low end of 11.5 and high end of D? Would you say you're sure enough that you think I'd be safe ordering 2nds even though there's a restocking fee if the shoe needs to be exchanged?
