Congrats! I wish they had them in my size.

Tan McTavishes ordered. There was one pair left in my size at the Destin outlet. Tom said there was a small dent on the outside of the toe box on the left shoe, but overall they looked good. I ordered them and will return them if it's too noticeable.

, but....i went with my normal 65 size and they fit ok, a touch too large, but not bad.

Having said that, I later got the san Marco and Aberdeen and the black hills haven't seen the outside of my closet since😞

My guess is you'll say they're too wide. But can't hurt to try.

I have the Jefferson in 7.5d. They fit ok. I was thinking to try 7d.

If anyone is interested in a pair of Walnut Shell Daltons in 9eee (2nds), shoot me a message.

Yes, and it's hardly the only one.  In fact, AE in recent years seems fascinated with the idea of introducing shoe after shoe made up of all the casual elements you so well described a couple of pages back EXCEPT they make it a bal.   I'd love to have some of those leathers, e.g. tan or cognac Dublin, made up as a quasi Macneil.

 

An exception they got right would be the Rough Collection Black Hills made up as a proper knock about PTB with rubber sole.  Great casual shoe.  Of course, they promptly dropped it.  :brick:

 

BTW, to someone who asked a page or so back, the Black Hills does run just a little bit roomier than other 5 last AE's due to being a blucher and (perhaps) also due to being of slightly rougher cowhide.  If you have a chance to get a walnut pair at the closeout price, grab them.  Any minor cosmetic defects actually are consistent with the shoe's intended look.  A casual favorite of mine,  especially in F/W, and hard to beat for the money if from the SB.

Just tried 15 pairs at the Freeport store. Thank god Ben is patient enough to deal with a pain in the ass like me.

Did someone say Jay? As in the guy from the SC outlet?

@cc808314 give it a shot, what do you have to lose. Cheap enough...i got mine as firsts.

Hopefully you left with at least 5 pairs for his effort ;)

 

I emailed the Freeport location thru shoebank to check the availability of the shoe, and Jeff aka "Jay" was the one that replied to the email and helped answer questions yesterday, and then today I got emails from Ben.  Both signatures said it was from the Freeport ME location though.

Merlot McAllister v-tread OR Oxblood Strand (regular sole)? Decisions, decisions...
post #64708 of 70737
First of all, I'd like to publicly apologize to anyone I've goaded into buying McTavishes.

Second of all, I just ordered a pair of Brooks Aberdeens to help with the sloppy weather here.

I need help.

Merlot is more somber and Oxblood more flashy. Which are you going for?

post #64710 of 70737
Sloppy weather my ass. The Aberdeen is worth its weight in gold. Wearing mine right now. If I had to suddenly pick one of my 34 pairs and give up the rest, this would be it
