    Perfect! Thanks for posting the pics. These are much better than the ones on BB's website. Would you say that the colors on your pictures are fairly accurate (the ones on BB's website seem a bit more orange)?

    Also, I'm guessing that the fit is a bit wider than the 5-last?

    Those pictures were taken under fluorescent lighting in my office so the colours may be a bit washed out. They are a little more orange in sunlight but not too much. Maybe someone on here can post a picture of chili in natural light?

    I regret to say that I don't own any 5-last shoes so I am unable to compare fit!

    I find the BB MacNeils to fit very slightly wider than the 5-last, but it's pretty negligible for me. The toe box of the MacNeil is lower than my 5-lasted shoes. I'm not sure if it's due to the last or the poron padded insole.

    Here are a couple of indoor pics I had posted before:

    I apologize if this has already been mentioned, but can anyone confirm if shells will be on sale during the rediscovering America sale. If so, any word on what the discount will be? I'm debating if I should buy now during the webgem special or wait for the sale coming up. thanks

    What a timely post! Do you happen to have any side profile shots?

    wtf is up with all these aldens recently??? I unsubscribed from the shoeporn thread so I wouldn't have to look at mac's old legs, and clunky aldens... This is an Allen Edmonds appreciation thread. I don't mind the occasional alden vs AE post... but it's getting out of hand[​IMG]

    yeah those are AE... wasn't referring to those... Sorry about the whining, but there is nothing that bugs me more than "fill in the blank Aldens x argyles... wear in good health, uncle/nephew" Every time I see a pair of Aldens I have nightmares about Mac's old, age-spotted legs.
