What are your thoughts on this seconds Larchmont? Would you keep or exchange for another pair?

 

Are you worried about the creasing?

@ridethecliche

 

I'm not sure what they are. They were naturally like this upon examination. It seems more like "ripples" in the leather when I touch it. If they're normal then I will keep it. I just wasn't sure because my right shoe doesn't have that.

I think that is perfectly acceptable for seconds, assuming that's the only issue.

Comes out to about $40 shipped. Anything else I should add? 

 

Leather lotion.

If that's the main problem, then I'd keep them.

I think this is fine too. Keep in mind that this part of the shoe (eyestays and the quarters) will be mostly covered by your pants.

Well, the Jefferson, McAlister, and Cambridge are all broged wingtip oxfords on the #5 last but there are subtle differences.

 

The Cambridge (only available in shell) is a double sole with broging around the "collar" of the shoe.

 

The McAlister is a single sole with broging around the collar.

 

The Jefferson is a double sole but has no broging around the coller.

 

(I have all three  :)  )

Hey guys, would you pick up a pair of Jefferson first quality or shell Mcallisters in second quality considering they are the same price. My birthday is coming up and my girlfriend is allowing me to pick my own gift :) Also in the mix is a pair of first quality Rutledge, but is this too dressy to pair with chinos?

 

I decided on alden burgundy shell boots instead :cheers:. I guess I've gone over to the dark side.

Yep, I think we all got the MacNeils. Whoever gets them first, please post the pictures! Can't wait to see them in flesh.

Thanks for the input, VinnyMac and MacktasticGDogg.

 

I guess I'll keep them then. :)
