Bourbon? I love it. I have a pare of MTO Bourbon/Brown Broadstreets coming at the end of this month.

By far my most favorite color Daltons. How did you size these compared to the Strand or McAllister?

 

I'm 7.5EE in Strand and McAllister and 8E in Dalton.

Anybody recently check what is available in shell at the shoe bank ? I decided to expand my shell quota after seeing all these non color 8 shoes you guys posting.
TIA

LoL. I am going to try to start Walnut Wednesdays here (shell or calf is cool). Then I will mix it up between walnut and whiskey. :-)

I'd be surprised if this worked out. With the overall shortage of walnut shell cordovan and a minimum profit (if any) AE is making on MTOs with the SF discount, I honestly very much doubt this could work, unless we provide AE with the walnut shell. 

 

This said, at some point I have asked Allison whether I could supply my own shell to AE and got a response that AE doesn't let its customers provide their own materials. I assume she was referring to the individual customers though. With the large MTO this could be a subject to change. I am pretty sure Wolverine might supply AE with the shell it gets directly from Horween and made according to the Wolverine's own specs. If we can get the shell directly from Horween, perhaps we can place a large MTO order with AE.

It's been said many times. AE only stocks black, burgundy, and brown.

I approve!


I wish they'd do that for the MacNeil too.

Dubs, wear walnut on one foot and whiskey on the other...

Actually, they have done runs of walnut shell. So, they aren't limited to the three colors you listed.

 

However, lighter shell is difficult to find lately, and that's being discussed in the Alden thread. Lighter shell demands better quality material, because flaws are more evident.

 

Now, if the process for producing bourbon shell resembled the process for calf to any extent, bourbon wouldn't be any easier to obtain than walnut. That's because bourbon is burnished walnut.

 

So, while it would be nice to get some lighter shell, I wouldn't hold my breath.

I don't discriminate... A little walnut any day. Walnut shell Daltons today.

So if I'm a 13C in the 5-65, a 14B might work in a 1 or 7?

Speaking as a fellow weirdly-footed person (I'm a 14AA in every Allen Edmonds last I've tried) -- because they don't offer a 13.5, I'd suggest sticking with whatever the ball measurement is for your foot on a Brannock device and sliding down one width.

The Black Friday sale shoe list has some models I've never heard of.  In particular the Carson City and MacAdam.

 

Does anyone have more info on these new styles?
