Thanks for the info MWS!

Thanks to Sazon for restoring my desire to add chili to my lineup.

Chili Mcallister seconds, and next to Walnut Strand for reference:

Would having a pair of black Rutledges in addition to a pair of black Park Aves be redundant? I already have a pair of the latter, but am considering pickup up a pair of the Rutledges for a less formal pair of black shoes. Thoughts?

I just recently got to see the Golden Brown Chromexel leather in the Wilbert.  I got my partner a pair and he loves them, as do I.

I'm thinking of a MTO pair in some style other than a Wilbert, with a butyl sole, anyone have any thoughts on a good style (and makeup) for that leather?

Depends on your wardrobe and color preferences. I don't wear darker grays, charcoal, or black enough to justify multiple pairs of black shoes, so I've actually sold off my black Neumoras, Fifth Aves, and soon will list my Vernons... and replace the three with just one pair of black Park Aves.

Just go this at ebay for 80$ with shipping.

It also has a nice dainite sole

 

Great purchase! It looks like there might be a seconds mark on the sole, so perhaps they were a MTO that needed a remake.

At first I thought it was some cheapo shoes luckily I clicked the link accidentally thus upon seeing the other pics had a dainite sole.

Thanks!

Yes, that might be another possibility too.

Btw, new cop!
AE GRAYSONS! FOR 80$ again with shipping however its used. Anybody when was this model released? Or was this another MTO?

Now, I just want to ask why these stuff are cheap on ebay? I mean the sellers are gonna ship it right? The sellers have a 99-100 % rating anyway but im just worried as this is my first time purchasing on ebay internationally.

Ohhh so it was a regular offering before? Well nonetheless, I needed something to replace my 9d bourbons as I couldnt walk with them for an hour without experiencing pain.

If you have pain in your Grayson then you might have a sizing issue or the last doesnt fit. Which part of your feet hurts?

 

Maybe one thing to ask the owner is if he knows if the shoes/s have already undergone recrafting. If yes that reduces the number of times you can have the shoe recrafted.

Check out the "Allen Edmonds MTO" thread. There should be several examples of peoples' makeups in golden brown and natural CXL. Off the top of my head, I'm remembering @bl@ster had a Lexington and Leeds done up in that color.

Thats the first thing that happened when I first used an AE on my shell. I had been using a brush from Spain sold in a local shop. Which the handle is bigger. So maybe was used to that and then with the smaller AE one kept hitting the handle into the shoe. Ouch.

I have all AE brushes and AE sized brushes. I can't get through a buffing session without hitting the handle on my shoe. Never fails.
