    The CEO is waiving the MTO fee ($125) I think. If it is a standard model then it won't do anything for you.

    Can anyone comment on the fit of a loafer on the 7 last to the fit of the Macneil which is also on the 7 last? I would think it would be the same but would like to make sure. Thanks in advance!

    thank you. so the final price is the same $595 the standard model sells for.

    another question what cole shell is closest to the bourbon color? I see some walnut shells that seem to be medium brown. is that so?

    My observation is that the Macneil - being a blucher - is much more forgiving of a high instep than the Grayson, a loafer. The former fits me like a dream in 10.5 E. The latter is painful across the vamp in the same size, as is the Patriot, even in an 11 D.

    I like the 7 last but am having a heck of a time finding an AE loafer to work in any last.

    I'll quickly add the Grayson is available in a EE - which might help me - but I've never had a chance to try one on in a loafer. The EEE is way too big.

    Just talked to the folks at the Port Washington store, aka Shoebank. They are not sure what exactly will go on sale beyond what has been mentioned on the promo card. In either case, the SA I was talking to said he'd be surprised to see Dalton's on sale and he wasn't sure about the Brooks Brothers. I guess we will have to wait till Thursday to find out.

    That list was sent to me today by Kristle at the jeffersonville, OH store. She's been on the money for me. Good luck.

    Noting in shell. Even walnut shell varies from batch to batch. I have had two different pair of walnut shell daltons and they were completely different shades. My first was was really light but the vamp tore away from the boot so AE replaced them and the replacement pair was much darker. If you like the color of walnut shell you'll have to settle for the calf version or try to find different manufactures. Alden in Whiskey - almost impossible to find but at least it exists. Carmina makes a saddle shell shoe that is readily available but expensive.
