I went with the wide basic since I am primarily only going to wear them with my light charcoal suit.

They are suede right?  Just use a typical suede eraser.  On that note, I would probably invest in some protector for those.

Nice! My chili Delrays are one of my favorite shoes (and my second pair of AEs ever). But people on here don't seem to like the style very much.

I grabbed a few belts, too -- a Humboldt Avenue in 'golden brown' chromexcel (probably to wear with winter boots) and Decatur Avenue in brown grain (to match my Dundees and Leeds).

Suede eraser/brush kit from AE (others make them, check Walmart).  This post was mainly concerned with the red vibrate, but check the suede on the bottom picture.  post #18251  I'll try and post some better picts of the suede later today.

Love my Humboldt Ave belts. I got natural and golden brown CXL (I wear a lot of both on my feet). Beautiful and great quality.

Our opinions aside, the truly important question is this: if you kept the shoes, would you be satisfied, or would the flaws continue to bother you? If the latter, I suggest either sending back, or letting AE's excellent CS do what they do. For instance, a pricing adjustment to seconds pricing seems like a reasonable solution, if you would accept these as seconds. Be aware that returning for an exchange doesn't necessarily guarantee a perfect replacement, though.

Of course, if you flat out return, you may be able to get these instead (chosen specifically for you based on avatar):

I've noticed that as well. Personally I think they are under-rated so I'm glad to have found another Delray fan!

I'm a split toe junkie.  Love my Lasalle, Ashton, Malone, Wilbert, and Clark Street's.

I'm really interested in those Grayson loafers, McAllister's, Strand's. Those are really appealing to me, but are they considered business casual? Since the term is slightly vague... I just need a little clarification.


Wearing MTO (brass eyelets, Danite sole, and split reverse welt) Horween English Tan Dublin Leather McAllisters while on a date (she took this picture) strolling around a mall......

As always, depends on what else you are wearing. What I would wear to the mall is most likely more formal than what others might wear, so I would definitely wear tan Strands or McAllisters there, but that's because creased chinos and a dress shirt (usually a coat as well) is as casual as I typically go in an indoor public place. Likewise, I never go on a date with my wife without wearing a coat and tie, hence I could wear the same for that. But if you are looking for something to wear with jeans/chinos, and say a knit shirt, go with the Strandmok or a tan welted loafer. I wouldn't suggest wearing a calf skin balmoral of any kind or color with denim or uncreased chinos. On the other hand, I wouldn't suggest wearing a burgundy Grayson with denim either, though with darker denim and a pink OCBD, they would look quite complimentary for a casual night out.

This exact make up, but in the LWB Macneil, was to have been an MTO for me when they shut down the original MTO program.

Of coarse, you and I may be the only two people here that would feel comfortable wearing a bow tie and jacket to the mall (not to mention a PS).
