What is the model number inside the shoe?

I've seen several complaints that "thirds" have been shipped out as seconds. I've also received a pair of seconds as "firsts".

Or brown shell.

I love chukkas.

 

I got a pair of burgundy shell Dundees from the shoe bank. Unfortunately one of them is scuffed and the there's a little too much color differentiation between the two. They're really two different colors. They are fantastic and comfortable, but have to go back. I'll wait for another pair to appear or for the next shell sale. Not easy to send them back.

Any sizing differences between 65 lasted balmorals and bluchers?

@shades9323 Entirely dependent on instep/arch. The more "flat" you are, the closer they will feel. Of course there are plenty of other factors, depending upon the specific style.

Truffle McAllisters today, probably my fav shoe that does not make it into the rotation enough. I just have less use for balmorals compared to other styles. That and the color is strikingly similar to a pair of Alden ravello longwings.

My foot is somewhere in between flat and normal, skewing a little more towards flat. Not sure on instep. Models are McGregor and McAllister.

Curious as to what you gentlemen use to darken AE products.

 

I purchased a Decatur Ave. belt to coordinate with dark brown grain Dundee 2.0.  However, the belt is several shades lighter brown than the shoes.

 

I took it a cobbler to have it darkened and he said that the dye may not take on the belt - that it could still flake or rub off after the fact.  I gave it a shot anyways - the color is right, but just as he said it is rubbing off.  He told me that he used a spray dye.

 

Thoughts?

Wearing brown grain Kiowas today.......

Not everyone's flavor of candy cane, but the Santa Mok is getting wear #3 for the holiday season. Gonna put these guys to work the rest of this month.

Quick question guys.

 

So would a 12 E fit like a 12.5 D?  I'm speaking typically.  i.e. I wear 12.5D for 65 last shoes but I've tried the 12 E for Dalton and then fit but I'm looking at Strandmok and other casual type shoes.

 

thanks!

Spray dye is not flexible enough for a belt. Even if he used a liquid dye it can still rub off on your slacks or blazer.
I have found the at best leather dyes (those used in shoe repair shops) should not be used for any other purpose than on boots or shoes.

Every year I tell myself I am going to buy the candy cane laces, and without fail, every year while I am ordering online I forget to add them to my cart. I always regret it once the great holiday pics start rolling out again. Well done!

It looks like the $100 minimum for free shipping isn't in effect so you could order the laces on sale and have them ship free!
