    I really like what you've done with the color. I got the Chukkamoks (still hate the name) as a good boot to wear in the summer (and because of the clearance price). But I think I am going to darken them as yours look really nice. Thanks for the idea!

    Seems like an awful lot of MTO's failing inspection. I'm wondering if the AE employees get the opportunity to buy rejected shoes at a discount. If so, I can envision a scenario like when I frost Christmas cookies with the kids and they keep accidentally breaking cookies in order to eat them right away.

    AE ee 1: Jim, what size is that awesome Bayfield in Walnut Shell?
    AE ee 2: It's a 11D.
    AE ee 1: Sweet! Oh look at that scuff on the vamp, I can't approve this for release to the customer. He deserves a perfect shoe. Tell the boss I'm going to buy these rejects at the usual 50% off employee discount and we need to remake these shoes for the customer.

    A few months later, there are a surprising number of AE employees walking around in Walnut shell Bayfields and Rydenfan is in disbelief his shoes have failed inspection four times.

    Take a look at the AE rough collection, particularly AE Aberdeen (longwing), McTavish (wing-tip) or Rapid City (plain toe). They should work pretty well with both chinos, jeans and casual shirts.

    How do the butyl soles hold up in the winter with light slush, snow, and salt? Trying to decide if I should put some Topy's on my brand new Fifth Streets for walking around the city during the winter months.

    Thanks Cold Iron. The Dundee was only available in brown so I didn't have a choice of color there, but the other two were availble in black and burgundy. Thanks for your perspective on calf vs shell - very helpful, and interesting that you don't wear the calf! I have limited experience with shell generally, but I have never seen a pair in black so it will be interesting to compare when I get the PAs. Thanks for the comparison pics I do plan on wearing one or more pairs in the snow and rain - is there anything particular you do to your shell shoes when using them this way?

    Walnut shell is my favorite color.

    Congrats.

    The toes look darker though, or is that just the lighting?

    This is a great picture comparing calf and shell. I'm really looking forward to getting my black shell PA's. I know some folks prefer calf for formal shoes (I was even told here that I would be disappointed in my shell purchase), but this picture has me convinced I will prefer the black shell by a wide margin. Thanks Cold Iron.

    GOP Shoe Guy - a fine choice. Those certainly look like they were worth the wait. Enjoy.
