I have a few pairs of Daltons and some of them have that "feature" as well.  Actually, I have some Alden boots that are even worse.  Given that you have got quite a rare "gem" (pun not intended), I would keep them and just enjoy them as you're not likely to find a replacement.  They are beautiful boots.

Agreed. Nobody will ever notice. If they are comfortable, are structurally sound and if you can get over the "flaw" mentally, I personally would not return. I've been waiting for a pair of walnut cordovans to come up in my size for a while now and no luck so far.

It's one of those things where I would tell someone else it isn't a big deal. I think defects only bother me when they are mine lol. With a MTO boot one would expect better execution. However you guys are probably correct that it isn't a big deal.

I got a 14 and a 15 in tan...gonna return one.  Just don't know which.  I've got 14B/14D/15D from them, over time and in different styles and differing degrees of perfection.  So I'm hoping one of these fits.

I remember someone asking about "pitting" with shell cordovan a few pages back, but I couldnt find the post to quote. Parts of my cambridges and patriots just wouldn't shine up with the mac method, so after about a dozen wears, I put a thin coat of allen edmonds cordovan cream on and viola! The pitting was significantly less pronounced and started to shine up like the rest of the shoe. It is still rougher than the other parts upon closer inspection though. Will plan on using the cream on my new strands after a few wears also.

Their bals, but I really like the distressed brown numonks casually with just about everything from jeans to chinos to seersucker & madras last summer...

try as I might, I cannot get a decent shine from my brown patriots.. stripped a bit of material off with some renomat, but they still haze. brushed the ever loving hell out of them and nothing.

 

may go the ever slight polish route, just to see what comes of it (as these are beaters)

Looking good.

Are the strands the same color as the webgem? Do you have more pictures of them?

MTO they do.

 

I *believe* these are them, from a fellow member here (i'm not well versed in AE)

Hey guys, I'm looking for some help/input for the upcoming 2 for $250 seconds sale. Currently I have black PAs and walnut strands, so I'm looking to expand my AE collection.Shoes I'm considering,

 

-Sanford Black/RL Slaton Black

-BB MacNeil Black

-Player's Shoe Walnut/Black

-BB Gatsby Brown/White

-RL Sanderson Tan

 

 

Loafers

-Presidio Black/Brown

-Westchester Black/Burgundy

-RL Innsbrook Brown/Tan

-RL Singleton Black/Brown/Tan

-Neumora Brown

 

Which ones do you think are versatile/will get the most use in a rotation? I am looking for a pair of penny loafers but if there are two other shoes on this list that I should have then I can buy the penny loafers elsewhere.

Can anyone give me a definitive answer on sales tax and the outlets?

 

 

I heard that if there was no AE outlet in the state you had your shoes shipped to there wouldn't be any sales tax charged.

I ordered from the Riverhead outlet and she said I had to pay sales tax of the state it was being shipped to, because AE had stores there.
