Should I have them re-do it?

And for reference, the stock AE photo:




I think that's just how the last looks in your size. You can't compare really to the stock photos because we're not sure what size that is, and each size has a different physical last, and there is expected variations from last to last.

Looks par for the course for AE to me, I must say. They also last shell more loosely than calf because of its tendency to tear.

And you will.  They are fixable.  They just might look like this:

My walnut shell daltons came loose on the wingtip leaving my foot completely exposed due to the unlined construction.

I took them to AE and they sent it to the factory to be fixed free of charge. They came back in a couple weeks almost looking like nothing happened. Shouldn't be a problem as long as the weather stays mild.

Yeah, I should ask them. I don't expect any complimentary service though, since I've really beat the hell out of these.

Ok. I am back to the drawing board a little here. Just got some 8 e McAllisters and I need to go up in width. So I am a 8 2e in Bals on the 65 last. Just how large are the McTavish? I don't see any 8e on the bank. Are they big enough to drop to 8d?

No regrets here. I'm waiting on a Bradley in brown shell.:bigstar:

@shades9323 Huh...was going to tell you to forget the bank since they literally just had the cognac 1sts for 199 but I see there are now few sizes left on that. Didn't know they were completely phasing this out - kind of stupid in my opinion, one of their better styles.

Dropping a width I would say maybe, dropping 2 widths I would advise against - it doesn't run that large. What others are you looking at.

Looking for a lighter colored more casual shoe with some style. Haven't really noticed anything else of interest at this point.

Maybe the Clark Street in Natural Chromexcel?

I am really happy with my natural Clark Streets. Super comfy, zero maintenance, look good with color laces. I reserve them for spring/summer only, primarily because I like the way they look with no-show socks.

Thanks for the suggestion. Not a fan of them foam insoles though. Can they be removed and leather used instead?

So I just received my walnut colored Dalton boots. Normally I see them with jeans but I was wondering if you could wear them with slacks and a tie? Any color combination ideas? Sorry I am kind of new to be high and shoe/fashion game. Trying to step my game up

I actually prefer them most with business casual type stuff.  I never wear my Daltons with jeans - not a big fan of the look, although several people on here are.

 

I wear my walnut Daltons primarily with heavier chinos/wool pants in navy or grey. I don't wear a tie simply because they're not ideal in my line of work, but were I to wear one it would not change my footwear choice at all.
