Much thanks for the information!

Piping is correct.  Slip Beading is another name for it.

My MTO arrived today. I do believe that these were some of the last cappuccino MTO's that were accepted. I got these for $505 with the RDA sale price. Jefferson in cappuccino shell with dark brown natural edge trim and independence lining.

Pastor, those are absolutely STUNNING.

 

When exactly did you place your order? Looks like you got them FAST!

I actually placed the order on Sept 26. This is the second pair that they have made as the first pair did not pass inspection. I'm happy with the timeframe and quality of the shoes.

I came here looking to see if anyone was talking about this. "Private Equity Firm Brentwood Associates Agrees to Acquire Allen Edmonds"

Looking awesome Pastor. I am looking forward to getting mine some sun rays, but I want to photograph them first. :-)

I think my order was the last Cap Shell that they accepted, but I got mine before you because of your's being redone, so you may have gotten one of their last pieces of shell. :-)

Enjoy them! I like your dark edge trim. I went light.
