    I worked with Alison as well, albeit over e-mail only. She was fantastic. Much better experience than some at the Shoe Bank who i understand are likely handling more e-mails and as a result are slower to respond.

    I was expecting my suede MacNeils and not he shell. I ordered the suede over 3 months ago and the shell only about 3-4 weeks ago.

    New second Chili Dalton's showed up today. I can't for the life of me figure out what's wrong with them and they fit better than any of my other AEs. Can't beat it for $199!

    The Montecito get zero love and are really only good for guys with flat feet. I used some Renovateur and some lovely neutral polish. I really like how they turned out!

    Good day gents, I have a quick question. I used Saphir Renovateur on my bourbon McAllisters. I had no idea it would take off so much polish (tested an area on the inside part of the shoe near the sole). It is far too light. Should I go ahead and use Reno on the rest of the shoe and hope that the polish will return it all to it's original bourbon color? I love the original color. Thank you in advance.

    Ouch, AE's Bourbon is a hard to get back; unfortunately the bourbon polish won't bring it back to factory finish. Try using the polish and then finishing with the brush you use on your black shoes

    To get it back where you want it. I'd take it to a cobbler and have him polish them with black polish on his wheel. They're not terminal they're just sick at the moment. You'll get them back to where they belong.

    Nice! I bought some Dalton's too, I hope tomorrow they confirm me the payment and send them to Oklahoma and then travel all the way to Mexico. $199 is a hell of a deal.

    I decided to buy them 9D US as the guys from the customer service told me that it should fit perfectly.

    They looked pretty good in the indoor pics but they look great in the sunlight. Maybe I'll put this model back on my list of AEs to consider.

    I wear a C in US size. I understand that my best best is the Simpson and Alcudia. The issue is that if I like a style that is made in the other lasts, then I may not have an optimal fit. I'm not saying its impossible to get a Carmina, just harder for me.

    If 10C is snug, you may want to consider trying 10.5C. It will give you the heel width you want and extra length which may help with the toes. It looks like you like the 10D toebox better and have an issue with the heel. 10.5C should have the same space in the toebox as a 10D.

    Two weeks after getting this pair, I finally get to wear them "in the wild."

    Decided to go one width up with them and it seems to have been the right decision. I just hope that I have enough of a lacing gap to avoid a overlap later on.

    ^^Thanks! Wasn't quite sure about the Merlot when I first ordered them. But now I'm really liking how they look with blue suits/pants.
