    @BackInTheJox Is the shanley definitely the Acheson? I thought it was the Grayson. The chocolate suede is clearanced at 159 if people care.

    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.
