    After selling mine last month (due to them being too big), I thought I'd never get another chance to own 'em. This post is very much appreciated!

    I would be surprised if AE did not have stock of CXL. It is a great leather and generally available

    #8 Shell Banchory order placed with Allison :) I like the toe shape on it way better than the MacNeil or Larchmont, and the unlined aspect of it is going to be great! Specs, #8 shell, unstructured, unlined, exposed brass eyelets, chili welt, light brown edge, double JR sole.

    So that's two MTO shell orders, both things I've wanted in unlined for a long while now. Lots of discussion of Alden vs. AE, but I'll say that being able to get a pair of shell cordovan unlined, unstructured wingtips and longwings at $500? That's something that Alden just can't come even close to competing with.

    Also, just talked with Allison, because of something I didn't notice the first time on my invoices... the 1/2 in sole sock liner on the Neumok (and I got that on the Banchory instead of Poron) is always made of the same material as the shoe... so, that's going to be a shell cordovan innersole. :slayer:

    Just was on the phone with Allison. They have black and brown CXL. No natural or any other color.

    I can't believe they show up in my size on the website. Too bad I placed myself on a strict "no buying" diet. Oh well. I am not a huge fan of the Daltons, but I wouldn't mind having them in walnut.

    Walnut Dalton is am awesome boot! Seriously it is unlined so it is super comfortable and lightweight and a killer color. I get the no buying thing completely, but just figured I would make it more difficult for you :)

    I appreciate that, Ryden! I might consider them more if I didn't just have to pay for my Leeds this morning.

    It was a spontaneous decision, but I just decided on the Leeds MTO made of the black CXL on the Dainite sole with the natural welt and the natural mid-sole with the brass eyelets and alabaster laces. I hope this will be a great shoe for the casual wear.

    I get why you are telling yourself that, but a pair of CXL Leeds would be great. ;-)
