    So for sizing do you stay with the same size as your 5 last shoes? As in it is not so snug that you need to make a change in size?

    I'm looking to get a pair in tan and suede.

    How to track MTO order? can it be done through the website, or does one have to call in to get a status update.

    I had to call my sales person to get updates. I am waiting for my suede MacNeils and a dark brown Cordovan Leeds at this time. The suede has been @10 weeks and the Leeds where only placed 3 weeks ago.

    The other week I ordered the Elgin and McTavish, both in a 9.5D as opposed to my regular 10D because everyone says they run large. The Elgin fits great like my regular 10D but the McTavish is tight and feels exactly like a 9.5D.

    Has anyone experienced different sizing between rough collection shoes?

    As far as I am concerned, McTavish is a bit narrower than Elgin, although they are built on the same last. I ended up getting McTavishes in 9E and Elgins in 9.5D.

    Thank you. Wish I had known that going in. Everywhere said to size down a half size for each of them.

    Do you know what size you are on other 5 last shoes such as the Strand or McAllister? If a 10 we'd be in the same scenario.

    I don't have McAllisters, but if this helps, I am 9.5E in the Strand and Fifth Avenue, 9E in the Neumok and McTavishs and 9.5D in Elgin.

    There's a thread on here from a guy who stripped the lacquer finish off his 'Polished Cobbler' Allen Edmonds (albeit a different model) with rubbing alcohol to find a wonderful full grain leather underneath, complete with pictures and his own re-finishing.

    Based off that combined with the customer rep's words, that gives me hope (and ~75% confidence) that it really is full grain underneath the lacquer of this pair.

    From day one I polished with dark brown, they eventually turned a color similar to chili, but with nicer patina. I'm satisfied. Will post pics when I get a chance. J

    For my merlot McAllisters I found a Trafalgar belt at Nordstrom for $29 during their July sale. Reg $75 I think. I've been very happy so far. J

    FYI the Morgan wingtip is now available in other colors than the blue.

    Wine looks pretty good, so does the brown.
