Thanks Cold Iron.  The LWB's are very comfortable... worth a try!

Nice. I've been eyeing this pair of seconds, which I assume are the less-than-perfect first run of your MTOs.

I wondered why my MTO took so long. Too bad they didn't offer me the one with defects for a discount.  I would've bought it instead.

Worth a look, the shoe looks better in person than in the pics.

 

No, as BWV988 said, they must be the first run of my MTO.

Please send me info with your information if you have time, I just checked it out and looks like they are available at the door. But if you don't mind send me a PM. We are upgraded to a blizzard warning with -50 below zero wind chill but that is why I have a 4x4. You do realize you just cost me a pair of AE's as I will likely will have to spend the night there? No complaints here though!

Well, unfortunately not a hint of southern rock in this set. The university band will play a few songs, and then our quintet (I'm the saxophonist, but not the leader) will close the concert. It will be quite modern, I'm afraid. ;)

 

I really wouldn't want you to go to any trouble, especially if the weather's bad. Was half-joking to be honest, although it WOULD be great to meet you in person! And will be wearing my new shell AE MTO :)

 

If it's too hairy to make the trek, one of my own concerts is being broadcast on NPR this weekend. So if you have a radio handy, that may be a much more manageable commute!

 

Will send a PM with my phone number

Just gave FAs a quick buff with brush and towel. I've been wearing it for the past 7 months, practically every other day - 2 or 3 times a week. These are definitely my workhorse shoes since it goes well, at least to me, with suits or business casual ensembles, albeit not too casual though.

Last time I checked Amazon have them in all sizes for $245. I bought one in 3E and they fit perfectly; mines' lacing gap becomes less and less as they get broken in (I've been wearing them at least twice a week in the office this winter).

Of all the things I've read over the years in this thread, this may be the most surprising! ...I suppose the boot collection more than makes up for it. wink.gif

FedEx says my Bayfields will hit the doorstep on Tuesday. Very excited. Incidental to @kentyman - my car is still covered in snow but I walked to the post office today; your VSC should arrive on Tuesday as well.

Thanks, Adam! That was very generous of you.

 

It's a shame you couldn't make that trek in your Bayfields, though. ;)

Interesting. So they did stretch sufficiently for you two? Did you end up with the same size as calfskin Strands?

Finally received my Dalton's, I love them! They are tight, don't know if I'm going to keep them unless they break nicely, but I really don't know why these are seconds. I can't find a major detail on them other than some darker spots I.in the side of the boot that at the end are covered by the trouser. If I don't keep them I would buy the 9.5D.

I'm in another state of Mexico so quick pics! smile.gif

Keep them! My Daltons broke in great after about 7 wears. They were tight fitting at start but feel great now.

Ah, gotcha.

 

Whoever is selling them seems to be trying to make $150 profit on them.....those should have been $299 since they are seconds.

Wearing my brown shell Jefersons today with the January Soul Sock, "snowed in".

I'm looking at grabbing Neumok (navy), Strand (merlot or brown), PA (black) ... was hoping they would have put the Leeds on sale =\

 

I'm good on size fit with Strand/PA obviously, but just wanting to double check with you @OptoDoc on your Neumok sizing since you and I have sized fairly close so far.

What is the full make-up of that MTO .. I want to replicate!!!  And if you don't mind me asking, what was your final MTO cost through Alison?

post #37275 of 47011

Folks I need some help... I've got a pair of burgundy AE Chesters. They are naturally high gloss, soft leather and I get corrected grain vibes from the shoe. Did AE make corrected grain Chesters or am I wrong with my vibes?
