Ha! I agree, which is why I was a little puzzled by your response. I DO, however, really like the black shell Dalton's that one of our brethren MTOed. Shiny, but not overly so...

way to be heads up and MTO a web gem model. the walnut version looks great, the chocolate is interesting… very dark

 

Did you get them at the web gem cost or the usual MTO cost for calf shoes?

Yah love the walnut one and yeah chocolate is darker than I expected but it's okay. Unfortunately calf ones was usual cost.

Congats Won. 

 

All of them look great, particularly the Natty.

Thanks fellas! 

 

Okay so I looked them over in more detail and the walnut and dark chocolate calf shoes are definitely good to go. The Natty CXL, on the other hand, I'm more iffy on but let me know what you guys think (the issues aren't as bad as Kahuna's).

 

 

Uneven lace area on the left shoe

 

 

Loose stitching on the inside of the left lace area on the left shoe

 

 

Loose stitching on the inside of the left lace area on the right shoe

I don't think the loose stitching is terrible, but that's pretty uneven lacing. I have that on my regular MacNeils and I didn't think it would bother me, but it is slowly starting to bug me more and more. Probably a result of this thread!

I really need to condition my AEs, -- how often do you all take care of your shoes?

I give my shoes some attention after every wearing. Maybe not a full up job, but at least a brush/buff. But I pretty much only have shell cordovan now.

Picked up some Mcallister seconds today in walnut and grey. The walnut is beautiful. And I'm hoping they grey will work casual with dark denim.
