post #39436 of 53389

i hope i'm not breaking any rules - i have a $35 re-craft gift card that can be applied to all online purchases (no good for factory outlets).  expires in 74 days.  free. first come first served.  probably the best if you know for sure you are getting something from their website already.

 

thanks.

Doesn't Birmingham have an outlet store? Good thing I don't live in a city with an outlet store. I'd have 40 boxes too. I think I've bought 8 pairs since finding this forum last August!

Wore my freshly topy'ed Daltons today; the soles' toes were getting eaten up pretty quickly, but it's like they're back to brand new on the bottom, and footing is absolute when moving on snow/wet ground...  I'll see people just staring t the boots all the time.


Probably my second favorite shoe.

Thanks, YoungSweet - They probably saw the ground 8-10 times before I noticed the toe of the sole wearing down in a way that made the boot look less clean. Topy solved the problem, though, and I'm no longer walking like Frankenstein to avoid the toe erosion! :fu:   

The jeans are Zara Man Basic - nothing too special, but they do have the stitching to match the walnut Dalton, so, Win...

...Amazing how much better you look in jeans when your jeans FIT.

Now you'll really be able to rock them with confidence, BCer... Good move on your part, if you want to keep them looking crispy.  In the midwest, snow, rain and salt kills streets, cars and shoes.  It's crazy, though... I've had to tell three WOMEN in the past week that I'd find out the conversion for their size in the boot. People like them that much.  Oh, to have the dalton in shell... Hmmmm...:slayer:

So...Thoughts on the Positano??? Ordered a pair.

Wanted something sleeker than the Patriot or Randolph, without tassel.  My question is, is this shoe recraftable? No mention on the site of that option; Italian made... Italian recrafted? Can I get some 'Bologna vs Goodyear construction' debate started this morning? :nest:I've yet to wear a sole out on a shoe. Any shoe.

MTO Eagle County has come in, and it's absolutely everything I dreamed of.

 

2002 CHILI CALF

BROWN UPPER STITCH SEEN ON 1628

BRASS EYELETS

BLACK FLAT WELT

TOASTED EDGE DRESSING

INDEPENDENCE LINING LEATHER

DAINITE OUTSOLE

LEATHER MIDSOLE

 

Needed a versatile boot that I could wear with literally anything from jeans to a suit. I think I hit the nail on the head with these.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Color looks deeper and more brown in person, as is common with chili. Do you guys think the creasing is fine? I'm talking specifically about the second picture.

 

Also, how is the welting done on these dainite soles? Might the lack of visible stitching make these more durable?

 

 

For those of you who have been wondering about sizing on the 2-last, I'm normally a 13C on the 5-65, and these fit me very nicely in 13D.

Also received my MTO Eagle County's yesterday, and I too am very pleased:

Also received some shell today from the 2nd's sale: burgundy Westchester and burgundy Cambridge. I know the Cambridge is a fan-favorite around here, but I personally think it looks a little...blobby...as another member described the 5-last earlier this week. Also, not sure what to think of the Westchester's. Keep or return?

 

Cambridge:

 

 

 

 

Westchester:

Looks like the shoes are different colors...can this be fixed?

 

 

Some dryness? Can this be fixed?

 

Some marks...not too worried about these as they would happen after the first few wears.

That is a pretty killer makeup. Well done!

Beautiful MTO guys. Got me drooling over here man.
post #39450 of 53389
Lovely MTO! I really love chili. It's the only color I own two pairs in (regent street and shaker heights).

Edit: actually I own two in walnut as well. And two in dark brown, though one is cowhide and the other is shell.
