These are definitely awesome!  And I'm very happy you have your MTOs.  At the same time I'm jealous!  I have to wait another day or two to get mine  .   .   .

I specified some poron insoles and was a bit worried that it might affect the fit, but thankfully the shoe fits fine and not all that different from the try-on sample the ladies at AE sent me to verify my Kenilworth size.

The walnut shell color looks great, and ever slightly lighter than another pair of shell PTB's I recently received that came out much lighter than it was supposed to. So I now have two pairs of tan/dark tan colored shell PTB's at my disposal. The Kenilworths will serve as the blobby pair (check the pictures below wink.gif).

Overall, I'm very happy with the MTO experience with AE and I'd like to thank Mr. Grangaard for the nice offer to the SF community.

Onto some quick pics:

Compared with the aforementioned other pair of shell PTB's, which is Carmina. The 5-last doesn't look so sleek anymore, which is OK here. It would be kind of difficult to justify two pairs of sleek PTBs in almost the same color.



 


I hope you guys enjoy the pics. Now let's see some more MTO's as they get shipped!

Thank you, and all others who commented on my walnut shell Kenilworths, for the kind words. I'm looking forward to seeing pics of your MTO! It would be cool to see a lot of unique AE makeups in this thread soon.

Just got notice that my Webgem order for the chili Daltons shipped. Looking forward to getting them; they're arriving about two weeks earlier than promised! Anybody got theirs yet? Photos?

I ordered Walnut Shell Macneils. Seeing the color on yours, I even more stoked to get mine. I can't wait.

Quick quesion: Does a pair of McTavish fit the same as a pair of McAllister of the same size given that they are of the same last? Are there any other elements that cause them to fit differently?

I have a pair of the latter and am contemplating pulling the trigger of a pair of the former.

TIA.

My Mactavish seems to feel looser whereas McAllisters fit very snugly.

I sized down a half size from Mcallister to mctavish. The rough leather does not fit as tightly over the last.

I was asking this same question a few pages back in the thread and the consensus was that the McTavish do run a little larger even though on the same last (presumably from the different leather quality). There was someone (maybe two folks) who said they wore the same size in both but generally they seemed to run larger. I just order a pair of Elgin seconds from the outlet which is on the same last as McAllister and McTavish. I have two McAllister so once I receive the Elgin in the same size I'll report back on the fit. I was told by the saleswoman that these are AE Elgin not the BB version.

I have a 20% coupon at Amazon for shoes and thinking about getting either the black Park Avenues or Walnut Strands. 

 

I have no particular need for either, but with the discount, either is a pretty good deal. 

 

I don't have any balmoral shoes to date but do have a black shoe I can wear formally. I also have other pairs of brown shoes already too. 

 

 

Which would you choose? I'm not looking for any more wingtips so that is not up for consideration. 

you only need 1 black shoe, get more shades of brown. the strands are a great pic. also you should add a suede shoe or loafer to your collection.

the fit guide measured me as 11 on one leg and 11.5 on another, so i went with a 11.5 as it recommends?  or did i screw something up?

you printed it incorrectly. you have to change the settings to actual size and not fit to page. i did this as well and there was no way I was an 11 or 11.5

you fit is exactly like mine, you are most likely a 10D.

I use thicker socks in my mctavish, and i use thinner dress socks in my mcallister. i have both in the same size, but with the thicker sock my mctavish fits perfectly.

What do I need to do in order to pretreat/protect and care for them thoroughly? I have avoided suede shoes up until now because I know it to be a nightmare to take care of and almost impossible to clean once stained. I have heard there is something I can treat them with so they absorb a protective barrier. Any advice?

Cold Iron swears by this stuff to protect his suede footwear. On his recommendation, I purchased some and have been quite pleased with the results.

Thank you all for your prompt advices. Much appreciated.

I neglected to mention that I have a pair of Ridgeway (which is presumably the same shoes as McTavish) that is half size down from my McAllister; while wearable, I find the toe area a bit snug-ger than I would have like.

With that, I have decided to order the McTavish in the same size as the McAllister. Perhaps I belong to the small minority that needs to wear the same size as their McAllister.

Chocolate brown calf Byrons today. Usually my office is more jeans than wool and more sneakers than leather, but occasionally I get tired of not wearing a suit.
