5. Dark chili Dalton

Thanks!
Maybe now would be a good time to pick up the Oak Street.

Personally, of the shoes I own, my cognac McT's are one of my favorites.  I have a fair number of WT/brogue shoes - never feel limited...

 

(and the McT's are getting better with patina, too)

Thanks guys. It would probabely be wise on part to go with bourbon as I don't have anything it that color, before they run out of inventory. I like the Mora, Flatiron and Lexington. I am also contemplating the Warwick in dark chili, but I am hesitating as it will most likely be relegated to dress attire only (man, I wish my brown Norwich would work out).

Clark Street is an interesting option that I hadn't thought about. Come to think about it, I have probably ignored it as it is on the 65 last, and it's my least favorite last.

The McTavish is sort of a 65 anomaly to me - I take the same size in 65 balmorals & bluchers, same with these. I felt like they were a "D and a half" width instead of a normal D. I usually have v-gap issues due to high arch - much less pronounced here. Length I thought was standard. @cc808314 I think you'll have fit problems with this one unless you're able to get a B.

Decided to break in my bourbon flatirons with a trial by fire, with an early morning flight then working on my feet most of the day. First few hours were going great but towards the end I felt the left shoe cutting into the outside of my ankle. Is that something that will diminish with breaking in? I haven't had that before.

Anyone tried the new loafers on 2042 last like lake forest.. I earlier thought it's on same last as patriot but turns out that's not the case.

 

It looks sleek in the pics online.

Thinking of getting them from the shoebank, but $150 seems steep for linen shoes so just thought I'd get some opinions if anyone owns them or has seen them in person.


I REALLY want them.  No EEE though.

Any in person experience? Or just by seeing them online?

Yes, but (unless I'm mistaken) I don't see anything in gloriously decadent Dublin leather.  I think you've decided to give up smoking by hanging out in a cigar bar.

I have had this with various AE depending on size. E.g. the 8.5 Leeds 2.0 did it on the right foot while the 9 Leeds 2.0 did it on the left foot and not on the right and I didn't have such problems with any of the Leeds 1.0 before at all. I put some moleskin on and after maybe 5 to 10 wears I don't need the moleskin any more. Possibly less if I had let it completely heal first but I didn't want to wait with the breaking in smile.gif

I have a blue Kirkwood and lighter brown Maritime - and love both of them (despite the Kirkwoods needing to be sent back once and the Maritimes needing 4 tries to be right). Was going to pick up a Kirkwood in brown and wondering if the lighter brown is worth the extra $30-35.

 

Thanks! Here were the light brown Maritime's (and my pale legs) making their first trip out into the sunshine. 

 

I would say no.  I've got the Kirkwoods in "golden" cxl and they look just like your Maritimes.  I'm beating up my kirkwoods and haven't conditioned them since I got them.  Want to see how cxl looks with heavy duty mileage on them.  I've darkened up my white soles pretty good. Whenever I put them on with shorts no sox, I get thirsty for a salt rimmed margarita :D

Dark chili Lexington's on a dainite sole. Such an awesome looking shoe... Can't wait till it gets here. It's going to be an awesome Oregon rainy season shoe.

I don't like ordering by phone- paranoid about getting the shipping address wrong.
post #70273 of 70737

So, I still haven't gotten the Cornwallis pair I asked for in the middle of January. Remember, this is the replacement since they couldn't make a pair of The City that I ordered at the beginning of November, so they offered to just send me any other shoe.

 

It has been two and a half weeks, so I checked in with the rep and got an email back "They haven't shipped. They'll probably go out in the next couple of days." They were in stock when I ordered and still show in stock. I think they forgot about me. In their defense, it has been three months almost, but I'm beginning to feel cursed. Like they've got me on a list of troublemakers since I'm always sending my shoes back, or something, and they're hoping I'll just stop bothering with them.

Probably nothing but what about when the wingtip creases like this?..

For today I'm going with my favorite, the Danbury. It's one of my oldest pairs, but the leather is as smooth and supple as the first day i got them.
