I'd rather exchange them for 12D once they get that size in stock. Could you call and ask to put you on a waiting list?

Now, both of my 5-lasted wingtip bals are extremely casual (the other is a pair of Neumoks). I wonder if I should go for a pair of those webgem Jeffersons???

A few quick i-pics:




 

They look much better than I anticipated. Congrats--nice shoe and a great price! This is essentially less than a pair of junk J&M shoes on sale.

This.  Compromises on size/fit result in shoes that sit in your closet instead of on your feet.

Just checking to see if anyone has found the post about SF members getting the special order fee waived. I have not had any luck.

Allison, who runs the MTO program, knows about it. If you place an order with her, she'd get the fee waved. I've confirmed this yesterday with her in person.

Those look really really good, a lot better than I expected

Is there an end date to the promotion?

When AE runs out of shell in rare colors, I presume :)

Did you end up going with the split reverse welt or the flat welt?  I'm contemplating the double butyl sole on a MacNeil in cappuccino or dark brown shell with a light brown transparent edge....I feel like the flat welt will make it look sleeker, but I'm not 100% sure. I guess the double butyl sole with a flat welt would be what's on the Dalton boot....

The heel tap on one of my new cordovan norwiches just came off... Bummer

Does anyone know the best email to use when requesting an availability list?

 

Last Friday I emailed shoebank@allenedmonds.com and was told they should have an updated list for the 2 for 250 "next week".

 

I emailed them today, seeing as it is 2 days before the sale so I assumed they would have a list, but no reply.

 

Any thoughts?

I haven't decided on this one yet but I was thinking of the split-reverse, since I don't like flat welt on the longwings.

I emailed jville@allenedmonds.com and received a list in both 11D and 11.5D this afternoon. Very quick turnaround. Feel free to PM me your email address if you're either of these sizes and I will send you the list.

By the way, the Shoe Bank was nice enough to take my order in advance of the sale and process it tomorrow night or Thursday morning so I would be sure to get what I was looking for. Worth a shot for you fellas to do the same if you wanted anything you know will be included in this sale that starts the 19th. Good luck!
