A query . . . Daltons:  Would you wear them year-round?

Thanks - the white calf is stunning!

I added a rubber half sole on mine because of our weather in Canada. I could wear them everyday!

Is there anywhere this could be purchased with width options? I would rock the hell out of that shoe!

Would they?

I can only hope for a return of the burgundy MacNeil as I missed the recent web gem.
That should be a regular model.


Just checked back there today, and the Walnut MacNeil is gone. Just the black on offer.
What madness is this?

I have the Harrison, which is also on the 333 last. The 333 last is a very long and sleek last. I have been told by many that this last caters better to people with longer feet and not a super high instep.

With that said, I went TTS on the Harrison and would, based upon my personal experiences, recommend that you try starting at TTS. I do recommend trying them on if at all possible, but the Rutledge is a beautiful shoe and the lamb skin lining in the Independence Collection is remarkable.

For a company who brags about wanting to hang on to "timeless classics" while offering contemporary, more trendy shoes, dropping its tan, pebble-grained (a/k//a scotch grain) LWB (Macneil) is almost bizarre.  They are a nice compliment to many sport coat and tie combinations and can easily be dressed down farther than that.

 

Maybe they simply mistakenly placed it under the "clearance" section instead of the "sale"  section higher on the page.  But, they have dropped the Williams LWM as well.  they actualy are using the term "close out" for that one.

 

Having said that, I wish AE had a tan/walnut smooth LWB or SWB in the 5 or 7 lasts..

Thanks for your input. I would try them on but the stores here have very limited selection and do not carry the Rutledge. I have slight rubbing on my small toe in my Daltons with a D width so I was considering going to an E width but keeping the size the same.

When you say that the 333 last caters to people with longer feet, does that mean that I should consider going half a size down?

Also......what does TTS mean?

Thanks

Very strange.
Just found the walnut MacNeil again, in the clearance section of the website. With very limited size availability.
http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF9247_1_40000000001_-1_

But it has been deleted from the regular MacNeil page, where just the black shoe is featured.
Glad I got my Brooks Brothers chili MacNeils last year anyway.
