1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I'm an 8.5D, but the creasing on those is a bit much for me.

    Those look great! What did you do to get them looking nice? Brushing and reno? Making me even more excited to get my brown shell jeffersons that are currently being remade!

    Since boots are all on sale it is a good time to focus on them. (unless you are looking at the 30% amazon disc.)

    Bittersweet.

    Received my MTO Brown Calf Dundees (Box says Cordovan) today. Never owned any pair on the 1 last so I went with the usual 7.5 E as I do in the 5 last.

    And they're TOO BIG FOR ME! [​IMG] I also have small ankles so the boot looks awkward & unusual on me. It is a sad sad day.

    Will be putting them up for sale in the Classifieds section. Wanted to give you guys a heads up in case you missed out during the RDA sale. Will honor RDA sale price + tax. Shipping is on me. $315 shipped UPS Next Day.

    Here are the details:

    Brown Burnished Leather
    Brown Leather Insole
    Brown Split Reverse Welt
    Standard leather outsole
    Light brown transparent sole and edge dressing

    I need some help with Dalton sizing because I don't want to make the same mistake with my MTO Dundees.

    7.5 E in 5 Last would be what in a Dalton?

    Based on that third picture, I don't think the previous owner has seen a shoe tree in his life. I think his care regimen involved laying lead weights on top of the shoes each night.

    Thanks! I'm also jonesing for my MTO burgundy shell Kenilworths.

    No Reno. Need to get some as there's some stubborn paste on the right shoe.

    Just wearing, wiping, brushing, and buffing.

    I have the dalton, and I wear it in a 12D. It's on the same last as your MTO dundees. I have the strand in a 13D (bought before I knew my proper size) and I would want to wear an 11.5E or 12E if I were to buy again now. So if you're a 7.5E in the 5, I would recommend a 8D in the 1 last.
    Hopefully a few other members here with a little more experience can chime in and comment. Hope this helps some

    I got a pair of McTavish back this week after a re-craft. Wore them today for the first time and the heel is starting to separate from the sole. Is this normal for this model? Would y'all reach out to customer service about this? The heel separation is one of the main reasons I sent them back in the first place.

    A lot will depend on your foot i.e. instep,where the ball of your foot falls etc. Some lasts just may not work, additionally preference plays a roll as some prefer a loser fitting shoe/boot. I wear the same size in my 5 and 1 last offerings. I have slightly more room in the 1 however i usually wear thicker socks with boots. Some however size down .5 i believe tifosi does this.
