I believe your brown MacNeils are someone's rejected MTO. MacNeil in this particular color is not sold on the AE website. If this is the case, the customer must have opted for a rubber sole. You will be able to change it to any other sole down the road with no upcharge.

Hah! I was wondering how long it would take before someone posted this question!

I got my second MTO today and wish I had Allison watch over the order, instead of making it through a store. They failed QC once and the pair I got in the post today should have failed also. I am hoping to get them redone properly. I just hope my shell MacNeils are made much better and in a more timely manner. 4 months to get a shoes that is inferior quality is not good.

My Dundee and Leeds were on the same schedule. I just got my Dundees so I assume my Leeds did not pass inspection the first time around, either. Interesting.

Is AE all out of walnut shell or is it some left?

 

Also, how much would an MTO shell Bayfield cost for those who did them? I already ordered a pair for $167 so it's kinda hard to beat the value of those, but they look so sexy in shell.

Yes. I am considering that exact same makeup and would do it in dark brown. I am back and forth between it exactly like that or a bit more traditional like this plain toe

 

 

Has anyone posted any pictures of Leeds in cappuccino?  I recall a cappuccino makeup in the Rawlins I believe, but not a Leeds.

Where did you get them for $167?

Walnut shell is all gone.

Yeah, felt that with a staple shoe like that I should have two pairs so that if one is off getting repaired I'll still have a pair of black cap toes. They're also different sized pairs, one is 12D and the other 11.5E. Got them both early on when I was trying to figure out what size I was.
