^ It took about 5 days for me.

Did anyone not get a receipt with the shipment?

Picked up these on a whim, but for $50 and made in Italy I think it's worth it.  Need some love, but I think they will make a great buy after some polish and new laces.

While they look pretty beat up, they are a well made shoe with some great calfskin. They should come back nicely with some work (as you said). Good luck, please post some before & after pics. It looks like a nice project.

I have these, awesome shoes. Totally different feel than AE's traditional line. The color gets richer with wear.

If you don't mind me asking, what color/brand polish do you use?

Nothing too fancy. I use neutral cream by melatonin and lincoln wax. A couple different shades of brown to help the burnishing. Depends on the mood i am in:slayer:

Here are the boots I rotate with:

Brown AE Bayfield
Brown suede Santoni Neville Chukka
Black Ferrgamo Giorgio Chukka

Just got my AE Fifth Street in black. Love them.

I feel like I am set for casual boots, and am looking at dress boots. Looking for something in burgundy or a dark brown. I love the Daltons in dark brown, and in walnut shell.

I just bought my first pair of reasonable dress shirts (AE Strand Cap-Toe Oxford: http://www.amazon.com/Allen-Edmonds-Strand-Perfing-Black/dp/B001TDKZR0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1337037720&sr=8-1 in walnut). I've read a lot about shoe care on this website, but I was curious what people's thoughts were specifically for what they're doing on their AE in this thread. I bought the Walnut AE shoe polish that I plan to put on every few wearings, a cedar shoe tree, and a brown brush. Is that sufficient or should I be doing anything else?

 

Thanks

So I got my second pair of 2 for $200 today.  The first pair were walnut Lombards, which I sent back because they were too small.  Though I am a 9.5E on the 5-last, not so much on the 2.  Too bad they didn't have a 10E left, great looking shoe.  I'm getting a pair of Brown/Brown Strawfuts to replace the Lombards though.  Below is the photo of my second pair, Cambridge brogue.  These are also 9.5E and fit a little tighter than my McTavish, but think they'll be fine.  The Cambridge is beautiful and from what I can tell, brand new.

The McTavish, Neumok, etc. use a rougher leather and will be slightly looser than their calf counterparts.

Thanks!  Love the McTavish; so comfortable.  Hope the Cambridge loosens up a bit.  They are my first pair of suede shoes.

That's some good lookin' suede you have there.

Ah, right, now I remember that you posted that. Sorry they didn't work out. I got lucky with mine, though I haven't worn them yet.

Second, follow up question, does anyone have any comments on the Hinsdale Black Wingtip? They're in closeout mode on AE's website for $249.

I think the 678 last shoes are pretty clearly described as being able to accommodate orthotics. So you'd see that in the description if it were the case.

I have seen a lot of Hindsdales at Nordstrom Last Call, usually for about $200. If you have one near you, might be worth swinging by to see them in person. Nice shoes, I think.

BTW, not you've got me looking at those McClains on sale.. but burgundy only. wink.gif
