My Black Friday Merlot Strands came in and they are looking pretty good. Nothing noticeably wrong with them, just some lifted perfing (I think that's what it's called, see last pic). Gotta try them on then give them a good rub down. Interesting sole colors.

Hey guys, I present you the picture to use when your significant others tell you that all your shoes look the same. Haha

Merlot BB McAllister and Merlot Strands. Significant difference in how they fit and weigh.

Very nice.  I'm beginning to think it's impossible to make an ugly Strand - they just look great in every color and leather.

Just got the good news from Allison today! My burgundy shell Kenilworths are ready to ship!

Too bad I won't have much time to enjoy them next week.

Well, please make time to post pics! Sounds like a great makeup.

Would you mind posting a few more pics of your Eagle County boots after the LP treatment?  And by that, I mean new pics (I recall you saying initially when you first applied it it looked darker, but they lightened up some later . . . I'd like to see the "later").  The tan is a bit too orange for my liking and I'm looking to darken mine just ever so slightly.

 

Thanks!

How in the world do you keep white shoes like that clean? Especially on grass/dirt? I can only imagine how much harder it gets with suede...

Wow.  I would wear the hell out of those.  Confining them to the golf course is a shame!

How different would you say they are?  Would you say that the difference is between the McA and the Strands or between BB and AE?

Now with my strands, this is my second pair and they seem to fit the same as my others, although I haven't really worn them.

Between AE and BB, the BB are noticeably heavier which felt strange when I was walking in both of them. I believe the BB shoes have a double sole, although I may be wrong.

Bored and I had my shoe care stuff at work so decided to polish my Daltons.

I ordered my cappuccino MacNeils in June. I returned the first pair for defects and the last two pairs AE made didn't pass final inspection. I'm not sure if it's a problem with the stock of cappuccino cordovan or a problem with craftsmen making the shoes. The positive about the whole ordeal is Allison has been great through the whole process and it's unfortunate she has to deal with all these problems. Overall this MTO experience has been a headache that I don't think I will be doing again.

:cool: "ahem..."

 

Suits...

 

 

(I'll change laces here)

 

...and slacks

 

 

These shoes seem to EASILY dress up or down.  An informal survey gives it an easy majority thumbs up. Time to pick up belt.
