The Allen Edmonds MTO Thread - Page 31

post #451 of 1924

Well my MTO Eagle County arrived today.  Order was placed early January and with the following specs:

 

BROWN BURNISHED CALF- CAPTOE VAMP FOXING, GUSSET, PULLTAB, TONGUE

BROGUE SUEDE-QUARTERS AND EYESTAY

INDEPENDENCE LINING AND INSOLE

INDEPENDENCE OUTSOLE

WHEELED EDGES BROWN

FLAT WELT

DARK BROWN EDGE DRESSING

 

Unfortunately, I don't think the calf portion of the boot is made with Brown Burnished Calf... I don't know if there was some confusion over Brown Burnished Calf and Dark Brown Burnished Calf?  The samples i received for Brown Burnished Calf were the same color as all my Dark Brown Burnished Calf AE's, but the MTO is significantly lighter.  Not sure what I think of the contrast between the calf and suede yet...  

 

I've looked through the website and one of the older catalogs and haven't seen a Brown Burnished Calf that looks like the calf part of my MTOs.  I'll probably think it over and may be reach out to Allison.  Thoughts?  Sorry for the cell quality pictures.

^^ Damn they are awesome! So pissed that AE won't take MTO on these anymore. They look kinda small, maybe. If they are 8.5 PM me!!! haha

My 2 cents

Brown Burnished Calf

 

I'm not trying to debate the AE picture quality.

It only appears that you got what you ordered, unfortunately.

That's not to say she didn't send you the wrong swatch.

Burnishing adds a level of variability.

Both of those say "brown burnished calf". They are clearly different shades.

 Here is a picture with better lighting and a comparison of the brown burnished calf sample I received (which matches the 3 pairs of AE dark burnished brown shoes i have...)

Haha, they are 8E (normally between 8-8.5D, but on this last found that smaller length and up a width fit better.)  I was going for a poor mans EG... Pretty sure I have bought seconds of MTO from either Tifosi or Ryden before - 8.5 Cappuccino Bayfields that I got for an amazing deal.

Pretty sure they were Ryden's Capp Bayfields. I do not believe they were seconds, though. Anyway 8E would be perfect for me. Let me know!

I am sure there are more than one of us that would take them off your hands.

I was just looking at some EGs.

I think they look pretty sweet as is but yeah looks nothing like the sample. The contrast works very well for it.

 

 

 

 

Also, sounds like we might be Bayfield brothers, got mine from Ryden and possibly you got the seconds? I am wearing them today.
