Hmm in that case the 14AA Ashton's I was sent instead of the 15D Fifth Avenues must have been eighths. Ill give him some credit they were both black.

I don't think anything beats the guy who receives two different colour shoes. A different size is one thing, someone could wear those, who they actually fit. These kinds of situations are discouraging for people in Canada, like myself, or other countries trying to utilize the shoebank. Both situations would be a huge pain in the ass.

Hopefully they wave the $10 return fee...

Surely they must? If anyone had actually opened the box and inspected the shoes, they would have realized that they weren't at all suitable for mailing out. Right?!

In my case they provided return shipping expedited my proper shoes and threw in some extras. While frustrating they took such good care of it I have no hesitation ordering from them again.

I would ask the SA to open the box and check for quality. They handle seconds all day, they know what to look for. Of course everyone's tolerances are different but it should provide more of a guarantee.

Exactly right, and don't feel shy about asking.

One of the JVille ladies volunteered to have a pair of shell PA sent from storage to the store so she could personally inspect them and send me a photo.

I've always had only the best service when dealing with Jeffersonville.

This was my first pair of AE's and I still think it is the nicest pair...It is one shoe that photo's do not do justice too. When I first got the shoe I left them out just to look at they were so striking. I have only rocked them in the house..also waiting for the warmer weather....Love the belt with it...may have to pick that up

This was my first pair purchased of AE off the bay Winhall in Chili .. this is another pair that photo's do not seem to do justice too...though this photo does a pretty good job :) I have worn these several times and always receive compliments. Considering the Orleans, Winhall, Boca or Carlsbad in black for spring and summer

Thanks, I did try the company to see if there were black Jermyns and they could not find any in 11.5E. In the meantime I have ordered the Manchesters.

Gentlemen,

 

Just a heads up that www.MTOShoes.com is now live. Please add your MTO pics, specs, etc (doesn't have to be just AE either). We'll continue to work on adding features to the site.

Should I use shoe conditioner on my MCTAVISH natural leather(wax infused) shoes - I did wear them once and want to make sure they are treated properly. Really do not want them to darken any more so not sure what to do - Neutral polish? AE shoe conditioner? I just got my order of Neatsfoot oil, Obenaufs HDLP and Aussie Balm. Not sure if those are to harsh for the shoe or will darken it too much. I am not looking to make these weather proof like my long branches. Just want the leather to be taken care of right.

 

Is there another product to consider?

Very sharp!  How breathable is the mesh - is it leather-lined or can air get right through?

I use AE Cleaner Conditioner and AE Leather Lotion on my natural McTavish and have no noticeable color change.
