    This mirrors my experience exactly, especially the last part.

    The difference now, however, is that when I've called recently, it goes to voicemail.

    Not to mention that these are shoes, not computer software.

    Misery loves company...I am glad to hear I am not alone though. I have sent 4 or 5 emails as well as left two messages just asking for an update. all I am looking is simply a timeframe when they may be ready. I really dont think that the courtesy of a returned email and that info is too much to ask

    I've gotten all four of mine from this round. My second try at walnut shell MacNeils landed yesterday!

    These look great! How did you get these? I would love to get some myself. Who is Paul and what is the MTO offer?

    If the strands don't fit me well at the ankle (flares open) how would the patriot fit?

    I'd say I'm about a 8.5D/E in Strand/PA.

    I did try on neumok in 8.5 sockless in store and it seemed to fit great.

    Thanks

    Walnut Strands arrived from Nordstrom (direct from AE). Took about 2 weeks. The i-phone pic does not do justice to how nice these really are.

    It's somewhat odd that some people seem to be rolling in the MTOs, and others are having trouble even making contact with someone.

    I am now into the 9th week since my (non-shell) MTO Leeds order. Emailed Allison last week to ask about their status, since I was originally told it would be 8 weeks. I did get a reply right away saying that they were on schedule and would be ready by the end of last week or beginning of this week, but I'm still waiting and have not received word. I'm being patient and giving them the benefit of the doubt, although I am envious of some of you guys who got your MTOs in ~4 weeks.

    Paul Grangaard is the CEO of Allen Edmonds. His offer is to email him directly with your MTO preferences, and he will have them made at the standard price for a pair of AE first quality shoes of the same material, as long as the materials are available and your request is "reasonable." They will tell you if it can't be done.

    Very nice, can you please provide details. Is that a custom color inside lining?

    They fit looser to me than my other 9D Allen Edmonds.

    Not to rub it in, but I was able to get price match for Manistee belts in Bourbon and Merlot by emailing around. I just BCC'ed an email to a bunch of stores in my area. Most replied that they couldn't, but one was happy to do it.

    Thanks Calikid,

    This is actually just the normal Dalton in Burgundy Shell Cordovan, so the lining is standard. The boot is beautiful, but standard.

    My MTO is a non-shell burgundy Franciscan with finishings of the Independence Collection (premium calf skin upper, lambskin lining, bi-color sole, etc)...hopefully it turns out well

    About a month ago I found a Manistee belt in Bourbon - exactly the color I'm looking for to match my McAllisters! But.... it was a 34 waist (and I'm a 38) [​IMG]
