They are available for MTO, they would be regular price ($395) as I just checked with Allison last week.  Lucky those who got them MTO at the discounted price.

Anyone know what 2003 merlot is? Also, anyone know the difference between merlot and burgundy is?

 

Here were the specs.

 

Thanks for finding this mdubs. And thanks for the compliments, all. I'm loving these. Can't wait to put them into rotation this week.

Yes, both are shell. What advice are you offering?

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. 

Absolutely amazing. Still waiting on mine, even though I was the first to order at the discounted price. They did not pass inspection the first time. BTW, Allison informed last week that she can no longer do MTO for discount pricing. To all that got the deal, enjoy the special price. I can't wait to get mine that were remade, they went for inspection last week. Great make up on the Chili Eagle County.

I've loved how all of these Eagle County's have turned out. I still can't believe people got these at the clearance price, they are all wonderful looking boots, quite versatile too. At $395 with the waived MTO i'd even call that a great deal. Just looking at the regular Eagle County, you would never know such nice boots could produced out of them. It's partly AE's crappy photos, and and the choices people have made when ordering them.

Brown shell it is! I think they would look great in suede as well

The new burgundy is quite a bit browner. The current merlot is redder, with almost a purplish hue. Like the old burgundy.

Sorry but that is not the case. I love AE and own multiple pairs but Viberg is a completely different level of quality and finish

I think I'm going to stay away from shell. I may go calf. Especially for the price.

You can darken the lighter colored shoe on the westchester with some dark brown polish. Wax only. Don't use the cream.  

 

Or, you can set the darker shoe in the sun. The sun will lighten it. However, I've heard this takes days. Like 7 days.  Check them nightly to make sure you dont overdo it.

 

As for the dryness, I recommend some venetian shoe cream. I've found this returns some of the moisture to dried shell.  Others have reported using cordovan creme from AE and Saphir renovatuer, I think. I like VSC and have experience with it. 

 

I've found that you can fill in those scratches, which all shoes get, with some wax polish. Just in the area of the scratch. Then some polish.  Others have used a deer bone. I have no experience with that, though.
