I do my best to really listen to you all while also managing expectations and protecting the future of custom product in general. I think most people here are really reasonable. It hurts my heart when I see people nitpicking on what falls within the margins of acceptable 'quirk' as it pertains to shell and custom handcrafted product, but luckily I don't see much of that here. Any kind of custom program is a fragile thing...but It's the most exciting aspect of my job, frankly. I love trying to make this stuff possible for you all. I already have some ideas for what we are doing next...and after that...I think we'd at least be open to some suggestions.
I greatly appreciate the opportunity to order the Hamiltons in shell cordovan this September and am really enjoying the burgundy ones I got on Friday. My only regret is that I didn't grab a pair in Chili too! The ones shown a few posts before me look awesome!

Walton in 13D...my first pair of AE about 15 months ago when it was trial and error with regards sizing and me based in Singapore.
Now I am 13EEE in most AE lasts but can make this pair work due to the wider 73 last. 12 hours straight...no problemo! Still my only black formal shoes. Don't need a black PA !!
Polka dot socks never go out of fashion too :)

1A today. But if I had my choice between football grain and a PA sneaker, it would be the sneaker.

If we’re doing a webgm I hope I can order some Daltons in Navy Calf, or maybe even Navy Shell if I got the money for it.
navy shell, you say?

🚨RDA IS HERE!🚨

Best prices of the season...and yes, that includes new Fall styles like the new Natural CXL Patton and Higgins, and Suede Strandmoks!

- 25% off ALL F2 product and Q1 clearance (through outlet stores only)!
- Up to $150 off current Q1 product!
- 30% off bags and apparel!
- 20% off belts!

Shop early to avoid missing out on limited stock!
Are these the 4100 Snuff Brown strandmoks? In natural light they appear a lot lighter than the stock pics. I have two of the brown suede strands and dyed one more chocolate. I almost ordered this new snuff brown one as the stock pics look darker than mine. I really regret not getting in on the suede TS :blush: especially for dark brown.

Gentlemen, it's 2020 so take your outdated style guides and throw them out the window. Remember, we now have a Park Avenue sneaker. I consider myself a conservative "formal/business" dresser having grown up and spent most of my life in NYC/Manhattan but even I have no issue with a black dress-like blucher when worn with a suit. It is not appropriate with a Tux but otherwise fine for business attire (but I have never worked on wall street or in a law firm). Most Oxfords do not work for me so I had to find a black dress shoe that did.

My personal black dress shoe is the Alden Straight Tip Blucher 971 Black Calfskin (as seen below).
