I forgot you and I are the same size and we apparently have more similar taste in shoes than I realized with your order and the stuff you have listed for sale. Surprised to see McT's and 93605's on your list.

To answer your question, I don't know, but I'm not planning to worry much about nubuck in the rain. ;)
Sadly, the McT and Florsheim don't fit well. I've had an interesting couple of years related to size. I lost a fair amount of weight about three years ago, which made the McT fit sloppy due to an already low instep. This year, I have begun experiencing the age related foot spread, which has made 11.5D shoes in 65 last feel a bit short. And the 93605's I picked up are just off. The heel definitely seems stretched out from the previous owner. I've flirted with the idea of heating up the heel cup and attempting to reshape it, but never got there. Figured I should just flip them back to eBay. Which reminds me, I need to get them relisted after pulling them down while on vacation!

How depressing, get shipping notice last Monday, doesn't get picked up from Port Washington until friday, now its bouncing from state to state and hasn't left the U.S. yet for my destination, Christmas gala is December 7, at this rate I probably won't have the shoes in time.

That is the one. The original poster only had 4 posts on SF and deleted his content. He caught flak for his "Dad Jeans" and deleted his posts and did not return. Lots of good content in that thread.

I never did go with the Wolverine CXL instead went with the AE Bayfield in CXL. CXL develops character over time with cleaning and treatment.

For the Wolverine I went with the 744 which was actually made by AE in a unique color of shell.

Been awhile, so everyone is posting top 5 AE favorites? That would be hard, very hard although today was thinking I should thin the herd done some. But don't think I can bring myself to do it. In fact need to stay out of here, after looking through this for the last hour now I have some new ones to check out. No I don't. Yes I do. No I don't...

Maybe take a shortcut and post Burgundy, Black, Walnut, Dark Brown, and Cappuccino shell Dundee's and be done with it. Would not be lying.

But that would leave out the snuff and MD x AE. And I do like Cappacunio shell.

View attachment 1284107

But most of my shell and calf is burgundy.

Too much mental anguish limiting it down to 5 and am going to go hide again before I end up buying something else.

No regrets. None.
Welcome back! Haven't seen you around here in a long time.

Yes indeed, welcome back @Cold Iron. Your photos & posts influenced me especially concerning boots & hunting gear. Good to see you back here!

I would guess that, here on SF, it's more common than not. However in the general populace, it seems insane to actually pre-order something, or have it made to measure, and wait. I have ZERO friends who have actually had something made for them, to their measurements, and/or pre-ordered shoes or boots. That's why I love you guys here on SF, you all "get it"
Exactly. The MTM is a must for me with my dimensions.

All of my friends would choke at the cost of even a pair of run of the mill AE's/Alden. We've found ourselves in an echo chamber here where drug addicts support drug addicts... Not a bad place to be!! :rotflmao:

Wow I have seen that photo of the Dundees on the blanket MANY times and never knew its provenance. You have a really great collection.

Is that a Cuppucino Cambridge with fudged/wheeled edges? What a harken back to ye old days of MTO glory!

Love the sentiment, feel the same way.
Must stop loading up but, my closet has been transformed.

Great to see you visit,
You were the local OG of the
'real men use their boots' mantra!

Would love to see some patined shots, seems old is the new new.

These are the old new, ie, new.

To make up for my lack of new AE shoes recently, I'm dropping this one in here today.

I don't think I got around to posting these but was over the moon when I received them. It was around the time of the job debacle. TS 2019.1 back when bourbon shell was the exclusive and rare(r) shell choice for AE; that is until 2019.2 dropped more bourbon in our laps.

Still haven't had their maiden voyage but the time is coming!!

Bourbon shell Strand (king) on a single JR with a translucent brown edge - the only option for TS 2019.1. A bit of burnishing on the toes which I'll probably try to remove. Some nice color variation with the heel piece; the color is phenomenal and gets me close to my grail color, natty.

Enough talking:
