    Photo please? It's around the eyelets.... No one will notice and it most could be darker polish when they burnish the shoes.

    Thanks for the reply. I'll get the DSLR out tonight to snap some shots, and I just so happen to be borrowing an awesome macro lens (105mm 2.8 for any photo buffs out there) so I should be able to get a decent pic.

    Maybe I'm just being picky, but for $300 I want them to be right! lol.

    Or order the pair you want now and then get the price adjusted once the sale price is opened to the public.

    If it helps at all, I have a pair of Mac's in Bourbon and the color near the laceholes seems to be Walnut - not Boubon (and the tongue as well). I picked them up on sale for $250 and they seem fine but wouldn't have considered them as first at full price. If you paid full price for those Macs in Merlot I would not keep them, but based only on the bowing of the shoe and the dark spot on the back.

    That would make sense. All AE bourbon shoes start out walnut. AE then polishes and burnishes them to create the bourbon color.

    Just ordered a pair of Dalton's from my local Nordy's.. I typically wear a 11.5 D (strand) but ordered a 11 E in the boots. They are being shipped from AE. Anyone with experience know the turn time?

    Weird... I took an 11.5D in Long Branch (same last as Dalton) and 11E in McAllister (same last as Strand), so the exact opposite of you.

    It was $199 at Lands End with free shipping to Canada which made it a great deal for me. It was only size 10 though and is gone now, but they have a few sizes of black left.

    This straddles the line between streetwear and classic I guess. Would walnut strands + chinos (casual kind) + an untucked shirt (ocbd/linen/etc) be OK, or too casual?
