    James at the downtown State Street store was very helpful. It seems that I have a wider foot than I thought so I was compensating on the left by getting a larger size. Instead we went from D to E width and down a half size (8 to 7.5) and I think I'm good to go. The 5 last is longer as has been mentioned several times in this thread so 7.5 seems to makes sense for me. Ideally if money weren't an issue I would get all of my shoes MTO and get a different size for each foot but that gets expensive. Now I wait until my new pair arrives.

    I have since put a nice shine on the toe of these. But I finally got around to taking a pic of my favorites shoes with socks representing my passion!

    I really like those socks. Where are they from?

    I say leave 'em. TheSizzle is right that bourbon comes with black edge dressing, and it looks nice. Actually, if you have pics, I'd love to see how they look.

    Hollywood WebGems just put on the website. Anyone ready to chime in? Pretty simple lines, only in brown, with 3 different colour linings and V-Tread Tap soles for some wet-weather durability...not bad.

    I have the grey daltons as well. I like them but the color is more gunmetal grey than stone grey. It has quite a bit of blue in it that doesn't come through in the photos on the AE website.

    oops, sorry I just saw a tweet or facebook post or something pointing them out. Haven't seen anything in here with anyone talking about them.

    Lol, not really, I continue to be boring, but I find interesting how he managed to get those reactions with the stitching theories and the mediocre Ferragamo boots.

    Thanks for the tips guys. I'm definitely not opposed to the darker edges, and it's actually a bit lighter than I was remembering now that I look at them again. I'm more just annoyed with myself for not being more careful before putting the dressing on.

    Here's a couple pics...

    I think it looks great. Doesn't the strand use natural edge dressing normally?

    No, Chili is the most commonly used and recommended color.

    They'll be fine. I made this mistake early on as well and it only took a few months of natural wear and application of the chilli edge dressing to get them back where I wanted them.

    Forgive my lack of knowledge: I also have a new pair of Walnut Strands and would like to use some edge dressing. What is the color you're supposed to use? It almost looks like the chili color...
