    I think you may have missed the point that DJ's selection were Seconds and not first, hence the possibility that that AE was not satisfied with the finished color:


    DALTON FIRSTS

    DALTON SECONDS

    Granted, the general condition of the seconds boots are in good condition and look nice. But if I were looking to purchase Firsts based on the AE picture, I would expect AE to deliver them as shown to me.

    you are right in that the finish of these daltons may have been different than AE expected. However, my comment was more in regards to the fact that this guy had his dalton's for less than a day and got the picture up. It took AE much longer to get their computer graphic of the AE dalton in bourbon up. Also, I've never seen an AE shoe that looks exactly like their website photo.

    I've been looking at the old AE catalogs from the 70's and 80's. The pictures they have in the catalogs are absolutely gorgeous. I guess I just don't understand the logic behind the computer generated website photos. It can't be cheaper, and it clearly takes much more time, I suppose there must be some reason or they wouldn't be doing it though.

    I find they are a little long. I would go down 1/2 a size. For reference, I am a mixture of sizes in different lasts, but ordered my Chukkamok's in 13E. I wish I had gone down to a 12 EEE (they don't do it in 12.5, otherwise I probably would have tried a few sizes in 12.5).

    Does anyone know if AE also makes the Ralph Lauren Slaton's in suede? I know they make the leather Slaton, just need to confirm.

    The Slaton is or was available in a snuff suede.

    Thank you for the recommendations on the sizing of the 4-last compared to others. I'm thinking of maybe going with a plain chukka instead. I see the Mojave on the website but probably will try to go with seconds to save money. What are my options for a plain suede chukka? I think the Amoks are mostly gone. It looks like maybe RL had a Saundes in suede at one point?

    Ordered the MacNeil in burgundy shell from the shoebank for $380. Does that seem reasonable for new shell seconds?

    welp, strand seconds are going back :/ a bit too wrinkly for my liking and a slight cut in the leather. came straight from the factory so I wasn't able to get j'ville to look over them.

    shame, as they were a good deal.
