post #766 of 3158

Gentlemen, I received my Harrison MTO in black cordovan today and I like to get your opinions on a couple things I noticed with my shoes. On the left shoe, where the quarters come together at the mouth, the medial (inner) flap is a bit longer than the lateral (outer) flap. On the same shoe, there's a gap in the heel. I suppose I can live with these flaws, but considering these are first quality $700 shoes, are they acceptable?

 

Right shoe

 

Left shoe

 

Gap in heel of left shoe

Acceptability is something that is individual. I would email Allison when I had an issue with my mto she reduced the price by $400. Love ae cs.

:censored:Absolutely not. This they should reduce them to very poor seconds or put them where the sun doesn't shine.

I think you should definitely call. The quarters should line up on a 700 shoe. IMHO

If he did 6x, I need to get my MTO game going. That's quite an order...Maybe that's why I can never get through to Allison over the phone, haha. Can't blame her though, she's super busy during this time of the year.

How come nobody ever talks about the Lexingtons? Derby + captoe is not really a popular choice I presume. Was thinking of picking that up also.

Haha Mike is right. Ordered 3x on both but probably won't get macneils till early next month. Was only gonna get one MacNeil but that obviously didn't happen

I just placed an order for a pair of MTO Lexingtons:

1020 BROWN CHROMEXCEL
TONE ON TONE UPPER STITCHING
BROWN BINDING
FLAT CHILI WELT
CHILI EDGE DRESSING
BLACK DAINITE

I've been wanting to get the Lexington at the current sale price, but really couldn't justify another pair of leather soled shoes. However, I realized that I was missing a pair of brown shoes with rubber soles (all of my rubber soled shoes seems to be tan or navy), so I decided to check to see if brown CXL was available. Once Allison confirmed that brown CXL was available, the decision to order was pretty easy. I envision this being a pair of very versatile year-round foul weather shoes.
