Did you already receive your burgundy shell Dalton's? I have a pair on order and didn't think I'd be getting them for a few weeks.

no I have not got them yet just getting the belt situation figured out before they get here

I also have the bourbon Amsterdams in the mail right now. MY BANK ACCOUNT ffffuuuu.gif

 

Sorry, I've been trying to figure this out, but how do I get the 20% off coupon?

That is even more impressive. What polish did you use? Could you share your process?

Beautiful brown, congrats! Did you use Renovator or an actual Saphir paste polish?

OptoDoc, I am an 8E on the 5 last so pretty close. I had my SA bring in Neumoras in 8.5D, 8.5E, and 8E. I ended up going with the 8E as the length was more correct. But, I probably could have gone down to an 8D as the E width has a good amount of play around the ball and blade sides of the foot. Not enough to want to return them, but probably could have gone for a smaller width.

 

I am noticing the same toe box creasing like others are and not too terribly bothered by it, but creasing none the less.

I used Renovator then later in the day Saphir paste - clear paste.

First I darkened them with Neastsfoot oil (though any boot oil would work) then I used Renovator then later in the day Saphir paste - clear paste. You have to give it enough time between applications. I waited hours after using the boot oil before either Saphir.

Thank you. I doubt my skills are up to reproducing your results, but I may have to give it a try.

Yeah, this is true. I was only thinking in terms of quality with him. I actually did make sure to check on the size on the last before ordering. I should probably find my way into a store to try on the 333 before I leave Wisconsin.

You can just buy a 333 last shoe on amazon, ae.com, or zappos.  They have free shipping and free returns.  After you try it on, just send it back if it doesn't fit.

Have an AE outlet near me, what quality can I expect?

 

BTW, its Freeport, ME, where all the lesser stars in the firmament cluster around the Nova that is LL Bean.

The brown looks great though I'm not experienced enough to play around like that.

How did the brown look before you did it?

So my custom ordered cordovan Delrays, that got damaged upon completion 1 1/2 weeks ago, are now on hold because AE is running low on cordovan. They now estimate 4 more weeks for completion... ffffuuuu.gif

Photos of the new AE Patriot loafers, from official sites. If anyone around here has experience with both this shoe and the Alden Van last, please comment on the fit over the instep / top of the foot. I'm one of the 50% who find the Van last painful, so I'm hoping the AE Patriot has more room.

Have you looked into the Alden/BB version that is unlined? I have a high instep and the unlined version is very comfortable for me. Comparing that photo to a pair I have sitting right here, I would say they look to have equal insteps - I would think the difference would be negligible.

Btw, is there such thing as intellectual property infringement in the world of clothing? I mean, the Patriot is clearly a copy of the LHS.

Someone else posted his new brown Cronmoks a thread or two back - they looked just like that. Don't get me wrong, they look great out of the box - I just like a darker shoe...
