Thanks! These were supposed to be the remake for the Dundees that had the rough welt stitching. But I was informed that my natty shell Macneil (the same one you saw delivered at the 5th ace store) was rejected because of unbalanced wings and that they could no longer make me a new pair since there was no longer any natty shell. This this ended up being the replacement for the natty Macneils. I'm happy they turned out great but I'm devastated I missed out on natty shell. I was hoping to get the defective pair as seconds but was told it was no longer available. There's a lucky 8.5D guy who got that pair at discount.
Thanks Pepper! I darkened the edge with AEs brown edge dressing. Love how it turned out.
