    Thanks tifosi for the heads up. I ordered 5 pair. I think I'm going to try to cutomize my shoe trees.....

    You can take off the metal piece and flip it over. I'm going to do it one better though ....I'm going to have the metal piece engraved. A couple of my buddies at work are just gettin started on shoes...a pair of shoe trees with their name on it would be a nice Christmas gift I think.

    Picked up a pair of Amoks today. I got two on clearance but the 4 last ran a half size smaller than my 5 lasts so I had to exchange them and there were only this color left in the country. Not my pic but I'm loving the mossy suede

    It's always nice to get a pair that at least has some practical use.

    I wasnt sure if AE got the shells with much base color or not. I thought I read that Carmina and Rancourt both buy a more undyed shell and dye it themselves. This is how they can get create some of the more unique colors.

    I was on the same quest (an AE version of the RL Marlow) for a long time. The problem is that AE manufactured the shoe (Player's shoe) that would best fit the bill on its worst fitting last (the 2 last). I've always said that if AE could introduce a shoe version of its Dalton boot, it would be the perfect AE version of the RL Marlow and a huge seller. I ended up giving up on AE for this shoe and went to Carmina. I think you'll agree they are not old-mannish, despite the double leather sole and round toe:

    Just so y'all know, Amazon does a 20% off coupon for first-time shoe buyers from their website, and they also honor Allen Edmonds' sale prices. Rediscovering America sale + 20% off = Win. I don't even need any more shoes right now but at $160 for a pair of Neumok firsts... my credit card is looking at me very nervously right now.

    I started planning my MTO - shell strands, then I thought it was too much and I have a pair of calf strands. Then I saw the townleys and was diggin those but my fifth aves just came in and I thought they were a little too quiet and I was searching and searching and really liked the blucher look but AE didn't have what I wanted. I came across the Marlows in the rock your socks thread and fell in love with that look but not so much the price. So I started my hunt for that look in shell in other brands. By luck I saw a pic (google image searching) that said AE players and it was spot on but it was walnut calf. Moments after I found that picture I was conjuring ideas, I knew I wanted brown shell but the rest I relied on what I liked about my rutledges. Minutes later I saw your post. [​IMG]

    I may have already asked you this but when did you order the Leeds that shipped a couple of days ago? I ordered mine on 9.6.13 (or thats the day I received my invoice/confirmation from Allison) and am hoping that I'm not that far behind you in the queue.
