Thanks to this thread, I ordered a pair of the deeply discounted Bayfields from Lands End. They were $225 Cdn delivered to my Vancouver office, all in. I see they're over $280 now, at a lesser sale price. They're fantastic! Just what I wanted with their mini-lug soles for those pissy-rainy Vancouver days, or upcoming winter business trips to Chicago and Montreal. Love them!

I thought the same thing, but I didn't think that it was a fight worth starting, lol...

Gave me quite a headache as well back in the spring when trying to acquire some black PAs. Took me three tries to find a pair that were acceptable.

 

I have two pairs in front of me now in "limbo". One right shoe is good, others are bad. I did a live chat today with a CS rep and they found some that were in store and not drop shipped. I asked her to please insist on really checking the shoes and shipping them differently just in case and she said absolutely. I asked her to ask the branch rep to make sure there isn't any stretching on the rear quarters and he said they were in good shape. I'm crossing my fingers; I'm annoyed that I have to keep charging my card and waiting for a refund.

Unlined walnut shell Daltons on this beautiful Friday morning.

These are my absolute favorite pair AEs.

^^^ Absolutely beautiful!

Does the lack of lining affect normal sizing?

I honestly don't think so. I am no expert, but I assume the shoe is built over the last after the lining has been installed. This to me would assure that the inside is the same, but the outside dimensions would change slightly. I am sure there are others on here that can back up or refute the opinion. I think it may feel a bit more roomy, due to the added flexibility in the leather without the lining.

I am not sure.

+1. Unlined shoes definitely feel roomier to me.

Speaking of walnut shell Daltons.

PSA, Pelle line has some stock. It's labeled as dark brown shell cordovan but the pair I received and returned were walnut shell on the box.

Yay accounting! Although he really meant "brand loyalty, word of mouth promotion, etc., which is what the non-accountant almost always means when using the word goodwill. (I know you know that, but I just wanted to say it "out loud")

I know it's just a shot of the shoe, but can anyone concur with my thought that these wouldn't pair well with denim? I have to be able to wear all my bluchers with jeans.

post #32580 of 51072

I think they pair absolutely fine with jeans (preferably a dark wash). They are a bit on the more formal side but still totally work. You could add something like an antique brass eyelets to make them slightly more casual but then they would not work quite as well in a formal setting. 

 

I wear shell PTB's all time with jeans...
