:bounce2:  This makes me very excited for my cappuccino Macneils.  Seeing those exposed eyelets makes me think I should have gone that route.....but I'm sure they will be beautiful, none the less.  When was your invoice date?

I am sure you can always add the eyelets down the road. 

The invoice date was 09/25

I think a few weeks back someone explained that Allen Edmonds uses the same sole for shell and calf shoes (all ordered from Horween in bulk), which explains why non-shell shoes will have that stamp.  Can anyone confirm?

Just to clarify, Horween doesn't make soles. The soles are made by JR. Search for this discussion from a few weeks ago.

What to do about dents?

Just got an email from Allison and my Cappuccino Jeffersons did not pass inspection and they are being remade. I got an updated ship date of Nov 15th.

I see they are 11.5D... too bad they didnt end up with a minor defect. I would have been all over those once they hit the shoe bank! :nodding:

The lighter welt looks great on pretty much any other model though, just not the Macneils...  But lots of people think they are gorgeous so maybe I'm crazy.

I could see that.  They definitely are more of a casual shoe with that welt and the eyelets I think.  There's nothing wrong with contrasting the look a bit.  Casual with classic and Slim shoes looking a little wider.  Don't we usually offset things a little in any garment?:bigstar:

I know a couple of weeks back that shell MTOs are now limited to burgundy, brown and black. It seems though that cappuccino is still available if Pastors shoes are being remade. Has anyone recently tried and been turned down for shell cappuccino MTO?

It's possible they reserved a few sets of shell per previous order in case of remakes, but I'm just guessing.

This is what I think as well.

I am pretty positive this is indeed the case.

I love the contrast, but you provide an interesting perspective; usually the complaint (although rare) is the opposite when it comes to width. For a LWB, the MacNeil is rather pointy 

+1.  I also think the MacNeil is too pointy.  I wished they had a 1 last LWB.  I was so tempted to get a MacNeil MTO.  I had to take a 45 min drive to SFO to try it on and I'm glad I did because it just didn't work for me.

I like the fact that it's a bit slimmer looking compared to other LWB's.  Some LWB's (Alden, for instance) look blobby, to me.  That look is compounded with smaller, wider feet, as well.

If the burgundy Daltons weren't so expensive I would have gone with those and a pair of walnut strands.  Instead, I'll have to do the reverse.
