These look awesome!

Thanks - they are! I can just be a little picky now with my rotation and they won't get worn very often.

I was just wondering how many people had already received these. How long did it take from the time you placed your order?

I have a really hard time with the 65 last. 9D is too narrow. 9.5D is too long. I'm trying to find a casual wingtip (or brogue) with a rubber sole (tried the Brooks Goremok but couldn't get the size right). I was looking at the Strandmok 2.0, which is in the 201 last. What size should I go with?

Or any other suggestions from the tent sale for what I'm looking for?

I think these were announced on a Friday (three weeks ago), and I ordered mine late Sunday. They were on my central Texas doorstep eighteen days later.

I find the 201 to be a little roomier in the toe box compared to the 65.

Every time I see a pic of burgundy shell MacNeils, I think I have to order a pair.  (If only there were a 10.5 B pair on SB right now, haha.)  Maybe with the next 15% off sale...

True, they are not macs. Vintage Florshiems. I only claimed they were "solid footwear." But I like to share with my forum pals.

Search on eBay. I'm currently selling a pair of MacNeils in burgundy shell cordovan size 10.5B. PM if interested and we can work something out.

Looks like MacNeils. The flat(ter) toe box and pointier toes looks like the 97 last.

Has anyone taken advantage of the new restricted MTO program recently?  I'd be interested in seeing anything in thats not a regular off the shelf makeup.

The way I tell Macneils from LWBs produced by Alden, vintage Florsheim and J&M, and virtually all other LWBs out there is that on the Macneil, the stitching of the vamp to the quarter is touching or nearly touching the wing.  On all other LWBs there's a good 1/4" to 1/2" gap.  Honestly, once someone pointed this out to me, I can't help but notice it every time I see them, and for that reason I really don't care for the Macneils.

This is one of the two main things I don't like about the Macneil that I mentioned earlier in this thread.

Speaking of longwings, anyone know who makes this Brooks Brothers longwing?

I assume not AE, and the sole says "Made in Italy."

Starting to see some of the Navy shoes make it to the Bay. There is a pair of 10.5 D Cornwallis on there.
