    I love my walnut McAllisters but there's been a crease developing in the toe region (right shoe only) that's been bothering me.. The shoes fit perfect and I also have McAllisters in merlot that have seen as much wear as the walnuts but do not exhibit creasing in the toe region. I believe I got these from Amazon last year. Would this be considered a defect?

    Here is a pic of the merlot McAllisters.

    Hopefully they look better in real life, but from the picture they look like someone set them on fire.

    Funny because I have the same two shoes, same colors, and for me they are both the same size and have the same issue as you. Except for me the toe crease is on my merlot pair and the walnut are fine. The only difference in the shoes for me is that the merlot have the combo sole and the walnut are just leather soled. I asked a rep at an AE store and he just gave the expected, "they are hand-made and no two are the same and sometimes that happens" response. I don't love that it's doing that but I've just accepted it at this point.

    I love the merlot color. It's very versatile. I have a pair of merlot McAllister that look great but I know you said you didn't want another pair of those. I also have the burgundy/black Shelton and love the look. The Park Ave merlot is my favorite color in that shoe also (don't own it, just seen in-store). Good luck!

    Yes, I would like to acquire a nice case or trunk for storage. However, Since I am a student and that was a photo taken during dorm move out, its not feasible to find a case right now. Trust me I have thought about it. Do you know who makes the second picture you posted?

    I am jealous of how much hunting you are able to do. I struggle to do any right now. Someday...

    I grinned when you mentioned your experience with heating your boots with mink oil. Saying your boots "never found out about that" being bad is a witty way to put it. There is a lot of stuff going around these days about what is supposedly bad, or things that the leather supposedly needs to stay healthy. If the leather could talk, it would probably tell us how coddling people have become.

    The bottom photo is a Limbert #359 bookcase made by the Charles P. Limbert Company in Holland, MI, in the years just before the First World War. You can sometimes find them being sold by dealers in American Arts & Crafts furniture or at auctions of American Arts & Crafts furniture.

    I believe the original photo was from an auction of fine furniture. Go Here and here

    But there are thousands of similar items when searching Google in the Images tab using the phrase: Glass Door Cabinet.

    Also, Bassett has several types too.

    This is a rather inexpensive option from Ikea: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/S09908441/
