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. ;)

Keep in mind that suede is notorious for stretching easily.  I too had a wider gap on the suede strands I picked up, but thought it would disappear as my foot settled into the cork and the suede stretched.

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.

Thanks...

 

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

 

Thanks

 

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.


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.

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?

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?

Mine were still tight after wearing them for 3 month. I usually wear 9.5D.  Ended up selling them. Currently on the waiting for a width up.

Those are dark brown not waxy brown Long Branch boots. I know because I own the same boots with the dark welt. AE obviously made boots with both color welts for some reason.

Hi guys, I need some help with my next pair of shoes. I need something versatile to wear with navy and gray suits maybe six times a year, that will still go well with khaki and denim the rest of the time. My current thought is that the Kenilworth would fit the bill, but what color? I am inherently not very stylish and welcome all opinions.

I work in manufacturing and wear steel toes five days a week and do not get to wear my nice shoes very often, so I'd like to get something formal that will dress down as deftly as possible. My other shoes are black McTavish and dark brown Long Branch.

Thanks,
Tom

The gap between suits and jeans is a tough one to bridge with a single pair of shoes. I only wear oxfords (like Park Avenues or Fifth Avenues) with suits, but those are much too dressy for khakis and jeans. Kenilworth's aren't really my cup o' tea anyhow, but I wouldn't wear them with a suit, or jeans either for that matter. If you really only want one pair of shoes for both roles, definitely get something in dark brown. Black doesn't work well for casual wear, and a light brown such as walnut wouldn't be ideal for conservative/formal situations.

Burgundy MacNeil. Boom.



Some don't like bluchers with suits, but I think it's a good bridge.
