What is the edge and welt color on these?  Love the contrast.

Mine is supposed to be delivered this week.  Very excited J-ville was able to make this happen.  I prefer my AE shell belts to the BB and Alden (which have been discontinued) offerings.

Great shade, great edging, great socks. I love it all.

I was wondering if the toe of your shoes is a little more squishy that your calf or non independence shells. I asked this question regarding my MTO strands a few pages back, but no responses. The toe seems pretty flexible which seems odd to me and I thought maybe it has to do with the lining.  Thanks!

 

 

Sadly you know my answer.

Do you have a special remedy for this?:

Nice. Are those black or dk bwn? Regardless, the lighter edge gives it a nice contrast.

That looks amazing. I've never thought of doing the fold up so large. Def doing that this weekend. Are those bourbon?

Those are walnut.  I think the color of the photo has probably been adjusted in some way.

Score!

Can I pick your brain? On the five last I measure 11.5D. I just tried on the Dalton's and think the 11E fits best, anyone size similarly between the two lasts?

I don't think you are going to be able to do anything about this. Looks to me like the shoes may be too long which is why you are getting a crease in the toe area. You can try to manually set the creases behind the toe with a pen or other round object. Just force the shoe to crease around the object. I've had mixed results with this method. In all actuality, you may have to live with the creases. I do doubt that anyone besides you (and a few SF members) would ever notice something like this. Those are some sweet looking shoes!

Thanks for the compliments.  Yours look amazing as well!!  Mine looked better before the creasing.  I may just keep that as the only crease, why add more if I'm not going to be able to get rid of it?  At least it's a little hidden by the medallion and broguing.  Pre Creasing/Self Whoring Pics :smarmy:  They don't even look brown in certain lights.  I'm okay with that though.

Maiden voyage of my Bayfields I almost stole from Lands end during a recent sale. All I have done to them is a complete Obenauf's LP treatment, complete with hair dryer. They darkened at first, and then lightened up over time with a real 'milky' finish to them. A little brushing, and you'd think I've used Kiwi on them - nope, just LP. Almost look too good to be my winter kickers...
