The "after' looks great -- much richer!

Did you use the "hairdryer method"?

Did they remain dark after they dried?

I did use the hairdryer method, they lightened up quite a bit once they were dry and I brushed them down.

I'm thinking about getting one MTO, so should I expect the same color? It is kind of expensive though, $725 for the MTO.

Maybe you missed the part in the post you quoted; "AE doesn't have walnut shell any longer"

 

The CEO made the forum a special offer where they waive the MTO fee as well, search this thread and you'll find it along with Allison's contact info.

 

It's disappointing, I was leaning towards walnut shell for my MTO I'm planning.

That is correct, I have called Allison several times, a few months apart and was told that they have no more raw Walnut Shell Cordovan and can not accept any more MTOs in Walnut Shell. Paul currently has no plans to purchase more due to a higher return rate due to the natural color variations present with lighter Shell Cordovan colors.

Been a decent week.  Yesterday, my Banff slippers arrived after 4 weeks and today my black Mctavish seconds from the $159 sale.  This is the 1st pair of seconds that arrived with shoe bags.  Clearly they had been laced before but there is absolutely not a mark on the soles.  Do you think this indicates that they were returns of firsts instead of true seconds?  The box is labeled as a second.

What if we place a large group MTO? They could bring enough walnut shell and we promise not to return then due to color. Win win...

LoL. We could try. Anyone up for organizing it and E-mailing Paul and Allison? I would support such a cause.

Someone would try to return them. With all of the return policy and discount tricks that people brag about here, you should know that they can't be trusted...lol. Unless there is an upfront "no return" agreement, I don't think that they'll do it.

I went shopping last weekend :)

 

 

Strawfut, Shelton, McCalister in bourbon.  I'm not sure which is my favorite!

Saw on Reddit that there has been an e-mail going out from AE detailing their Black Friday promos- has anyone received this?
