Congrats, it looks likes those fit you well!
Thanks, these fit a lot better than the grey ones, I switched the lacing to bar lacing and was able to get a better V-gap closure than in the picture, that was just initial try on.

Moving forward, unless the grey is offered again down the road, I'm going to try and order a heat moldable insole to take up some of the extra room, since the color is awesome in person, compared to the Silver look they had on the AE site.

Cxl almost always fits larger in regards to AE. I once had a pair of cxl Clark Street shoes that were way too loose in the heel and it broke my heart to sell them. They were my usual size, but just too damn big.

Hell I'd donate my McAllisters to the cause. I was gonna send em to Potter soon anyway.
Are you sure? I thought the purpose of this is to have them re-crafted, then take them apart to see if they hit the same holes.
Which would mean they need to be recrafted again?? Maybe I missed something, or maybe you don't want the shoes anymore. This would be something better suited for a cheap pair of shoes off ebay that no one planned on wearing, and was just for the sake of knowledge.

I would say purchase the most trashed pair of shoes of ebay, that AE would still accept for a recraft and document before and after, then disassemble.

But if it’s a pair whose history is unknown and we found extra holes we wouldn’t know if it came from this recrafting or something that happened before.

Killing two stones with one bird.

Although it was McTavish Tuesday all across America when I took this picture wearing khaki grain McTavishes, by the time I get this picture posted it will still by McTavish Tuesday here in the Pacific Time Zone but it will be Wingtip Wednesday in the rest of America.

For fans of "A-E In The Wild" pictures, aboard a Metro Red Line subway train enroute to the Vermont/Sunset station on the way the the monthly Paper Moon Vintage Full Moon Party.

One of the very few advantages of being 72 is you can sit in the old folks seats and only pay 35¢ to ride (75¢ during rush hours).

For fans of food pictures in shoe threads, a champagne in a two piece plastic cup (which I assembled) at the Paper Moon Vintage Full Moon party picture.

One of the many things I didn't buy (although there is always a 25% off sale on days when there is a Full Moon) at Paper Moon Vintage.

Since this is a shoe thread, some of the vintage shoes for sale at Paper Moon Vintage.

Y'all fondled the weatherproof Daltons?

Is it me or do they seriously feel really similar to the Indy line leather?
I have to check the style # on my pair, but I think they're the weatherproof Daltons. I thought the leather seemed pretty decent, especially for seconds.

TS 19.2 bourbon shell Strands have arrived! They seem to be flawless. Even the burnishing on the toes, something I don't ordinarily care for, looks great. It's very subtle and adds a little depth. Cannot wait to wear these! View attachment 1278199
So nice!

Just logged into my AE account to check status of my order, and my Jingle Bell-Mok shows shipped, WOOT WOOT!
It’s interesting to me that with all of the data that AE collects on customers, they don’t pass any of that info on to customers, in say the order history. Not one of my trunk show orders show up, past or present. Weird that from a customers perspective trunk shows are like, not even part of the company.

I'm sure it's tracked and stored somewhere. it just may not be in the regular data storage area, where say you have access to, like in your user profile. My guess is because there is no chance of you repeating the order. Unless they are planning on making things like Shaved Shell a regular option.

Skipped Wingtip Wednesday and decided to go for Normandy.
