It is burgundy CALF. What could I try?

Assuming it's Oxblood, then it should be pre-burnished and you likely need not do anything with it. You could strip the burnishing off and do something different yourself. Assuming it's Merlot, then you might consider black polish, but Merlot is already pretty dark. Anything in the red or blue family from Saphir should do something, with darkening easier of course. This chart should provide some inspiration: https://www.hangerproject.com/saphir-nuancier-color-chart.html

I will keep that in mind.

 

Once I receive the actual shoe, I will check out the color and see what I can do from there. Certainly want some kind of burnishing effect. Hopefully my good cobbler has good sense of matching colors haha.

I'm new to AE for the most part, didn't even know the company existed until January. I have a dozen pairs or so now, but my favorite AE style, the Bleecker Streets, I had to return because I couldn't get them to stop squeaking. It was bad. I kept them about 8 months and just returned because no matter what I did (wear around the house, condition, etc...), they weren't getting any better. AE agreed there was nothing that could be done and offered a refund.

I still can't get them out of my mind though. I want Bleecker Streets, badly.

Is it possible to custom order them? Even in shell perhaps?

Can't order them.  I'm a 12 EEE if you want to offer me $5000

Haha. Yea. 

 

I am actually looking for walnut/black shells first before I move on to burgundy. Not quite at the shell level yet haha.

Drooling. Mad drooling.

 

Only thing is that I feel like shells are best for boots. I mean is there a need for oxfords to be in shells?

Anyone have any experience with the Weybridge? Found some at BCF and I was wondering about their reputation. Thanks

Appreciate the generous offer and assistance, but plain brown bores me.

:rotflmao:Polojack you are a treasure to this thread. Love all the shell by the way.

Hello to all, I wanted to take an opinion from some of you regarding my recent purchase from AE. I took ownership of a "first quality" Dalton boot in oxblood. While most of the boot is pure beauty, the right boot has major leather stretch marks on it. I would like the opinion on two things: first, should these have been considered seconds? And secondly, will having this the way it is affect the overall lifespan of the boot in any way? Thanks in advance for any responses and enjoy the crappy night time iPhone pics smile.gif
