    I'm certainly not the expert or the final arbiter on the issue, but to my eye it is the Acheson. The toe stitching style and the presence of stitching around the heel match up with the Acheson rather than the Grayson, I think.

    Open to other opinions!

    Hey guys, Im not a fan of waterproofing spray, but just bought a pair of Addison loafer (seconds), and this is suggested, for care. Any reason I cant use a light coat of conditioner cleaner. John

    Damn. Nice shine job.

    Precisely. "Some form," indeed. $40 to change sole, welt, color, $110 to change leather (shell on shoe not available).

    That happens to every belt I've ever owned, regardless of quality level.

    I like the black pebble grain...very nice. I have the MacNeil in brown pebble (double oak, not dainite sole). I just got some black shell Leeds and I'm seriously considering placing an order for burgundy shell MacNeils.....

    As an avid fan of the 333 and one who really wanted to like the 1943 (let's face it, the Cornwallis is a beautiful shoe), I strongly prefer the shape of the 333. It's a nice balance between the typical AE shape and hyper-chiseled European styles IMO. It looks sculpted but not over the top.

    To my eye, the 1943 toe is a bit too blunted - for my taste, perhaps close to the square toed bicycle stitch shoes we all trash. That said, I would have enthusiastically rocked Cornwallises if the damn 1943 had been built for normal human feet. Paul G did state that the 1943 was a slightly modified 333, but after trying multiple pairs and styles in both lasts, this is pure fiction. They are not even close in fit.

    My fellow barn weasels: the week after next, I'll be celebrating the 4th with Independence Week - all my dress shoes will be Indy-line models (though I may skip the actual holiday on Monday). I have a new (used) acquisition that has been on my list for a while and a surprise MTO find queued up. I'd like to invite all of you to join me, for all or some of the week. Celebrating freedom by enabling!

    Picked up these vintage McAllisters on eBay for $35 shipped.

    Got them today, threw a coat of bick 4 on, followed with some renovatuer, a coat of black cream and finally a spit shined coat of black wax.

    Think they came out very well. Anyone familiar with the insole design care to date these?

    Wow, the color is really nice. Do you use some bourbon polish on them?

    I think that is about 20-30 years out. I have a pair with a similar insole and that's what my SA said. I'm sure much more savvy members could give you an exact day.

    Edit for comment placement.

    Perfectly timed arrival for Wednesday, walnut Bartletts from Shoebank. Slight ankle bowing and heel slip on right shoe but well within tolerance, very happy with them. I know, I know--bals with jeans, but fish gotta swim and birds gotta fly...

    ALL belts do that when you wear them. Geez.
    Is your waist a straight line with no curves or undulations all the way around??

    Here's my Dk. Brown (still a touch too dark for my dark shoes IMO) after 2 years. As you can see there is curve.
