Only one way to find out... Let us know what the answer is.
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.
Have been trying since morning. No response so far. Will keep you in the loop.
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.
I like your signature.
I have been waiting on an email response from Allison, too. Now I know why...haha. That is one busy girl!
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.
Wow! You ain't kiddin spontaneous!
This will be awesome!! I keep telling myself I dont need anything else right now but I really want a pair of black CXL.
I get why you are telling yourself that, but a pair of CXL Leeds would be great. ;-)
