Congrats and thanks for the picture! What is your thoughts on the AE black shell? It looks pretty good to me from here. As did those black shell Leeds that were posted the other day.

 

Also if you don't mind me asking did FedEx require a signature when they delivered them? I just realized that when I got my last shipment from AE they now use FedEx and did not require a signature. Which could be good, and bad... Damn I had the UPS guy trained to wait till the end of his route to delivery to me so that I was home.

Ouch! Have you tried stripping them with Renomat? http://www.hangerproject.com/closet/saphir-reno-mat-cleaner.html#.UF449I1lR2w

 

I don't like to use much if any product on shell except for brushing but every 6 months or so on the walnut shell will use a very thin coat of Saphir cognac wax. I purchased the cordovan clear from Saphir but have never used it. After ordering the Alden defender not sure that I ever will. Good luck, hopefully you can get them back to the original color.

How long do custom orders usually take to leave the factory? I ordered the Gramercy and was just wondering if their October 13th date would be accurate, or if that just the time they give you to be safe.

 question, where did you get the October 13th date? I don't think I got a date with my Urban Daddy order.

My SA called the AE factory to check on my custom Delrays in burgundy cordovan, they informed him that the shoes were almost complete but got damaged. Now i have to wait 2 more weeks, they have to re-make them again for me. The wait is agonizing, and now there will be a random pair of Delray seconds (or thirds) in burgundy cordovan somewhere in the world... ffffuuuu.gif

What size are you? Maybe it's worth finding out what the defect is in advance! lol8[1].gif

Thanks! The shell looks and feels good to me. It's my 6th or 7th pair of shell but my first in black. I'm interested to see how they age.

I did not have to sign with FedEx. I honestly can't remember if I did the last time I ordered or not.
