    Same size as my Daltons. Seeing all the amazing pics of walnut cordovan as of late isn't making the wait time for mine go by any faster.


    I went with the 8.5d in both. Quick shipping from the shoe bank as well nice and easy.

    Thanks!
    I found that these Sheltons fit TTS; felt great right out of the box (which certainly isn't always the case for me). Perhaps your experience was due to the insoles. The BB versions always fit a little different for me.

    Hello all,

    After lurking through this thread for months I finally gave in and bought a pair of dalton seconds. They are quite lovely but one had quite a few blemishes. I realize they were discounted for a reason, but having never owned shoes of this quality before I was with wondering if these would buff out with a little polish and cream or if they were irreparable?

    Would anyone have any advice?

    These are definitely awesome! And I'm very happy you have your MTOs. At the same time I'm jealous! I have to wait another day or two to get mine . . .

    Thank you, and all others who commented on my walnut shell Kenilworths, for the kind words. I'm looking forward to seeing pics of your MTO! It would be cool to see a lot of unique AE makeups in this thread soon.

    Just got notice that my Webgem order for the chili Daltons shipped. Looking forward to getting them; they're arriving about two weeks earlier than promised! Anybody got theirs yet? Photos?

    Quick quesion: Does a pair of McTavish fit the same as a pair of McAllister of the same size given that they are of the same last? Are there any other elements that cause them to fit differently?

    I have a pair of the latter and am contemplating pulling the trigger of a pair of the former.

    TIA.

    My Mactavish seems to feel looser whereas McAllisters fit very snugly.

    I sized down a half size from Mcallister to mctavish. The rough leather does not fit as tightly over the last.

    I was asking this same question a few pages back in the thread and the consensus was that the McTavish do run a little larger even though on the same last (presumably from the different leather quality). There was someone (maybe two folks) who said they wore the same size in both but generally they seemed to run larger. I just order a pair of Elgin seconds from the outlet which is on the same last as McAllister and McTavish. I have two McAllister so once I receive the Elgin in the same size I'll report back on the fit. I was told by the saleswoman that these are AE Elgin not the BB version.

    you only need 1 black shoe, get more shades of brown. the strands are a great pic. also you should add a suede shoe or loafer to your collection.
    you printed it incorrectly. you have to change the settings to actual size and not fit to page. i did this as well and there was no way I was an 11 or 11.5
    you fit is exactly like mine, you are most likely a 10D.
    I use thicker socks in my mctavish, and i use thinner dress socks in my mcallister. i have both in the same size, but with the thicker sock my mctavish fits perfectly.

    Cold Iron swears by this stuff to protect his suede footwear. On his recommendation, I purchased some and have been quite pleased with the results.

    Thank you all for your prompt advices. Much appreciated.

    I neglected to mention that I have a pair of Ridgeway (which is presumably the same shoes as McTavish) that is half size down from my McAllister; while wearable, I find the toe area a bit snug-ger than I would have like.

    With that, I have decided to order the McTavish in the same size as the McAllister. Perhaps I belong to the small minority that needs to wear the same size as their McAllister.

    Chocolate brown calf Byrons today. Usually my office is more jeans than wool and more sneakers than leather, but occasionally I get tired of not wearing a suit.
