    I don't want to violate thread policy, but I'll be listing these burgundy shell McGraws that I've worn four times in the coming days. Could anybody provide me with insights as to an appropriate list price?

    Thanks in advance.

    Should I?

    Found a pair of AE Links in Cognac grain with double leather sole @ Nordstrom Rack for 199. They are model #7766 on the box, which does not correlate with the regular rubber soled last of the typical Links style. I have not picked them up and debating whether to tomorrow...Also would like any additional input on their lineage since I cannot find any online or in recent past catalogs.

    I ordered some cleaner and polish from the AE site- how long do they usually take to ship stuff like that?

    The online store seems to take a business day or two to ship orders of in-stock items. Just remember that that's how long it takes to leave their warehouse, not get to you.

    What color is the edge of the Strand?

    I bought brown Saphir edge dressing but I don't think it matches up. I would prefer to stick with Saphir products, I'm a little OCD like that. :embar:

    CalTex, interesting question. I was in AE Philly yesterday and they sold me "chili" for edge dressing for my walnut strands and daltons.

    You def need a wider fitting or to go up one size. That lacing is too widely spaced. You need more volume inside IMO.

    My Strand's and Dalton's are both shell but think the sole edges are the same color. Chili is what I also use. It is a strong red when dry so on the shoes and boots that still have a red tint but also a brown color to them I use a rag and wipe it off in a matter of seconds after applying and it is a perfect match. I have more Saphir products than I care to think about, but AE edge dressing is hard to beat.

    Cold Iron, you're doing it right - that's what the directions say to do: wipe if off before it dries
