Here's another picture that shows the crease issue a little more clearly.  Note how it almost looks a little swirly.

...they're MADE IN AMERICA! I've never heard of them, but I like the idea of having American Socks in American Shoes.

 

Just curious if any of you have tried them...

I haven't tried them...but I may, now. Thanks for the link.

Allen Edmonds Portland Dress Boots 7882 Bourbon Calf - ONLINE ONLY

These things are totally gone from the site already. Wow. Any idea what happened?

Those bourbon daltons look great! Making me think about getting a pair...

 

Something I've noticed while looking at stock pics of the Walnut Dalton in calf compared to people's real life pics is that the amount of burnishing varies.  It almost always seem the burnished toe looks darker in stock pictures.  Is this true for people who own these? Do they come with less of a burnished look, or does the burnishing go away after wear/maintenance/polishing?

VERY VERY NICE BOOTS!  The AE website pic just doesn't do them justice, and i'm sure they are even more beautiful in real life!  Might just have to get my hands on a pair of these!  I was looking for something just a bit darker than the walnut... this ought to do the trick!

Wow these are nice!

I already have a pair in chocolate and walnut. Would it be overkill to get it in Bourbon?

No it would not.

For the break in method, do you have to use shoe trees after you wear the shoes on carpet for an hour? I think that Mac recommends doing it for 3 days.

Can someone explain what exactly "brush off" leather means in the description for the Morgan wingtips?

 Personally, you'd be crazy to only own two....

 

But seriously, I just received my pair of Walnut Dalton's from the Nordstrom Sale and they are by far the nicest foot covering I have ever seen in person. I'm waiting for a pair in Chocolate to come up in my size and am going to get them ASAP. Its not a huge step from there to bourbon....

Football leather chukkas @ Brooks Brothers. Looks nice!

Let's hope it's not another euphemism like "polished cobbler." LOL

**UPDATE: I just asked customer service on chat and here's what they said about it:

Jared: The Brush off process takes a black shoe and burnishes the shoes with dyes to give it more of a shiny polish look with color peaking through.
Jared: This is full grain leather, but it goes through lots of processing to give it that brushed off look.
Jared: The shoes will wear like any of our other calf skins and the brush off leather will keep its color. You only need to use conditioner cleaner on these shoes since they do not polish because of the brush off process, but will still show a shine kind of like a patent leather.

I've got to hand it to AE customer service. I was going into the chat thing thinking "they will probably have no idea and give me some boilerplate response." But no. I'm impressed with their knowledge. Just another reason why their CS is the gold standard.

The BB "Penny Loafers" look really nice if they can be had for $109 in the 2nds sale. Also, does anyone know how to fit the Brooks Brothers Presidio. I was thinking that I would go with my same length as the Park Ave/Strand but go one size wider in width.

 

 

The correct shoe is the  Item# MH00217

 

I have a pair of presidio I received from AE
