    I already have a call in to find out. It was the first call I made after hanging up from Allison at AE SWAT. :)

    Thanks! One week in London, then a week in Edinburgh... Between the Bayfields and my Long Branches, I feel like I'm prepared.

    I was in Nordstrom today at the fashion show mall and they had some shoes behind a curtain that were for a sale exclusively for card holders. I noticed the Strands price, they will be 225, I live in Mexico and I'm only going to be here till Sunday, I will talk to the sales associate tomorrow to see if I can buy them somehow, that's a really good price.

    Here we go again. I got my third round of Merlot McAllister firsts, and am still seeing problems. As before, they have the same obvious ridges, and the pinking/stitching is a little wonky again:

    Additionally, the back left panel on the right shoe looks quite different, as if it's a darker, rougher leather that isn't able to sit correctly:

    And finally, and I think worst of all, the inside leather of the left shoe is wavy in such a way that they bow out off of my foot:

    I'm pretty discouraged. Should I just give up trying to get a pair of firsts that I'm comfortable width? Which of these problems would y'all find unreasonable? Is this toe cap ridge here to stay?

    Any words of wisdom would be welcome.

    You know, with all these problems that you've had, I suggest e-mailing Paul directly and asking him to do something about it. A customer should not have to go back and forth and have the same problem with firsts.

    So after 3 tries, your first pair is actually the best, looking at the photos, got to say that you are very picky.

    But you are entitled to ask for another pair and let Paul know about your experiences.
