Just received the FedEx shipping notification for my bourbon Daltons.  Should have them at my doorstep tomorrow afternoon.  Fingers crossed I get a good pair! :)

Ordered the LaSalle's in black.  They were out of the Long Branch in Dark Brown, but put me on a wait list.  Now I can go over the list again and see what else I need.

If so, which colors? I know I saw a fellow use cognac a few pages ago, and he didn't seem entirely pleased. Any others with first-hand experience?

Any darker polish will darken your shoes slightly, just need to apply evenly.

I have the RL Saunders and they have the leather insole, not the Poron. Also, the AE RL's are most often compared to AE's Independence line as far as the quality of the leather goes, though I don't have any of these to compare them too. My Saunders also have the 2-piece combination heel like the cordovan AE's. they fit a little bit more snug than than my 5-last shoes. I like them a lot.

I think new shoes was only referring to the pricing of the RL shoes and not the insole/rubber sole part, as that is the difference between the BB branded shoes and regular AE branded

So for sizing do you stay with the same size as your 5 last shoes? As in it is not so snug that you need to make a change in size?

I'm looking to get a pair in tan and suede.

How to track MTO order? can it be done through the website, or does one have to call in to get a status update.

I had to call my sales person to get updates. I am waiting for my suede MacNeils and a dark brown Cordovan Leeds at this time. The suede has been @10 weeks and the Leeds where only placed 3 weeks ago.

That's what I figured. Thanks.

The other week I ordered the Elgin and McTavish, both in a 9.5D as opposed to my regular 10D because everyone says they run large. The Elgin fits great like my regular 10D but the McTavish is tight and feels exactly like a 9.5D.

Has anyone experienced different sizing between rough collection shoes?

Anybody purchase the Mora 2.0 yet??

Curious to get some feedback on them and would love to see some real life pictures.

Thanks for the help!

As far as I am concerned, McTavish is a bit narrower than Elgin, although they are built on the same last. I ended up getting McTavishes in 9E and Elgins in 9.5D.

Thank you. Wish I had known that going in. Everywhere said to size down a half size for each of them.

Do you know what size you are on other 5 last shoes such as the Strand or McAllister? If a 10 we'd be in the same scenario.

I don't have McAllisters, but if this helps, I am 9.5E in the Strand and Fifth Avenue, 9E in the Neumok and McTavishs and 9.5D in Elgin.
