    Is this amount of "toe curl" on my PAs normal? My Strand also has this, but it doesn't seem as pronounced. Not sure it can even be called a curl, but it is pointing upward a bit. If it helps, this is the first time I'm wearing this pair.

    Thanks Cold Iron. I really wasn't liking the looks of my Park Avenues. I would say they even had macro-creasing. Creases were very deep, sort of like a spider's web, and almost white colored. When they said the shoes were out of spec and they would send a replacement pair, I quickly decided to ask if I could swap out for shell. This was 100% based on pictures from you, Bucksfan, and a few others. So thanks for the preview. I'm excited about getting these and expect them to look great like yours.

    That's a great color. You mentioned a while ago that cappuccino was supposed to be darker than brown, and I can see that in your picture. I have a similar MTO on order, except I went with the Strand instead of the McAllister.

    And one could still argue that shorts are a little bit too casual. That aside your choice of shoes is more a matter of personal style than anything else.

    Gorgeous! Sorry to hear about the bowing, though.
    That seems a little excessive for the first wearing. Do you rest your feet under your chair, with your toes curled, or something?

    Not really. When seated, I sometimes rest my feet on the heels -- not the toes. But most of the time, they are rested flat on the floor.

    Actually, even when I'm not wearing the PAs, they curl upwards about the same amount. I sort of noticed this already when I first got them, but I didn't really think much about it since I thought the shape would change once I wore them more.

    These, on the other hand, are my Strands on the first day I wore them. Nothing but perfection!

    Brown burnished calf. For some reason, they seem goldish brown under that lighting.

    Decided to have a casual day with no client meetings and the dog days in full swing:

    That's an incredible photo. The entire ensemble looks fantastic and emphasizes my love of earth tones that I lean towards in my own styles. The Strands look flawless in the picture.

    Yes, the sale that Nordstroms has going includes shipping to Mexico for a flat rate for your entire order - which can include more than a pair of shoes. You can add anything else in the box for the same flat rate! Just contact the Manager (or send me a private message on the forums for the name)

    Someone asked about the Cognac McTavish a while back? Sorry for the long delay. The colors are a bit darker in the pic than in reality. The creasing is real, but I love thsse shoes regardless.

    That was me, thank you. I didn't order them because I had read for the McTavish you should go down a half size compared to other shoes on the 5 last and the sale only had my regular size for the 5 last. Could you let me know if this was true for you?

    I went down 1/2 size in mine and while they fit pretty well I think I would have rather gotten my normal size. They are definately a bit larger then other 5 last shoes however.
