    Ended up going with the chili welt instead of a natural welt. It should be darker while still showing the layers in the sole. I have the amoks in snuff suede, I wonder whether it has a chili welt. If anyone knows, let me know.

    here is what my order looks like. I wish there was a way to visualize all the options.

    *CAPPUCCINO CORDOVAN
    *TONE ON TONE STITCHING
    *STANDARD LEATHER INSOLE
    *SINGLE RENDENBACH OUTSOLE WITH COMBINATION HEEL
    *CHILI FLAT WELT
    *LIGHT BROWN EDGE DRESSING

    They look great, nice job! If you don't mind me asking are you using Reno on them? On my new pair I am using Bick 4 but it doesn't even come close to the luster that Reno did on my other ones. Still undecided on which way to go, Reno is expensive but....

    That is my make up almost exactly. I went with the chili split reverse welt for my chukkas and PTB.

    Sounds like a nice makeup. Which model did you order?

    I'm interested in getting some rainy day shoes with rubber soles. The crosstown series appears to be going on sale tomorrow. Does anybody know if there are any additional models going in sale, other than the three previously listed (Provo, Ann Arbor, Granville)?
    Thanks!

    Yessir. Saphir Renovateur, which I let sit for ~20 min or so before brushing like crazy. Then the AE Premium Polish in Dark Brown, and more brushing. I finished them off by putting a dark brown wax polish on the toe caps, and brushing even more.

    Not a fan of my experiment with Saphir cognac polish on my walnut Strands. After two coats of cognac, the shoe is taking on a reddish tinge and the darkening of the shoes has made the creases much more evident. Will go back to using AE's walnut polish. Here's a picture, even though it does not really show what I am talking about.

    I just placed an order. Confirmed that the walnut Dalton's are $199 and ordered them, along with a pair of walnut Strands (both 10D). However, I forgot to confirm the price on the Strands while I was on the phone. Just got my receipt via e-mail -- they rang up as $129. Called up (somewhat disbelieving) and confirmed that it's the correct price. Very, very pleased.

    It's been referenced a couple dozen times in this thread over the last few years. You're right, it does come in very handy. It's fun to see for instance that the 1950s Park Avenue was a blucher, or to peruse all the fashionable abominations they came up with in the late '70s.
