Yes, I think I might have done that.
How about a StyleForum thank you card or letter??
I'd gladly sign that. Even though I don't have a MTO, I do have this:
I have been gone for months, but I wanted to follow up on round 4 of these McAllisters. Here they are made with the new experimental pattern to remove the toe ridge. Proof that it can be done:
The only possible blemish I saw was a particularly wrinkled piece of leather in the lacing, either from weaker leather or just sitting in the box wrong, but after some Reno and lacing them properly, I think it's not a big deal:
Looking forward to wearing these for the first time not-this-but-next weekend at a good friend's wedding!
haha... I say it sort of tongue in cheek. Before coming to this thread I had no idea that men had so many pairs of shoes. IF not for AE's excellent customer service all the shoe buying and free publicity/advertising AE gets from this thread would be hard to believe. However, I do know for myself that AE has the best CS around so it's no wonder that they have such devoted and enthusiastic customers.
I don't have the slightest idea how to start this, but would anyone be interested in pooling funds together and getting MTO Allison a small(or large, depending on SF participation) token of appreciation? Just a thought since there seems to have been a surge in MTO orders during the sale. It would make for a nice gesture.
Looks like tifosi beat me to the idea
I thought about that too, but I was just thinking of something we could email around and have everyone electronically sign and say a few words. I think a gesture like that would go a long way. I'd gladly head it up if there is genuine interest.
There would probably be better luck with PMing or emailing the President if at all possible and relaying our gratitude for her effort.
He will take care of her.
Most companies frown upon employees receiving gifts from clients.
My 2 cents...
I agree. See my post above. My idea would ultimately end up being a word doc or something similar and emailing it to her.
Didn't think about that. Wouldn't be fair to all the people who had a hand in making the MTOs happen either. Just a thought, I'll gladly participate in any gesture of appreciation though
Here is a picture straight out of the box. You can see the rough patch on the toe.
Here's a more recent one.
It's still there, but not as noticeable. I assume the frequent brushing smoothed it down some.
What's the best place to get a deer bone for cordovan? Saw it once at the Alden store in DC, but that's about it.
Leffot or Hanger Project.
I would suggest hanger project as well. $75 qualifies you for free shipping so with the deer bone you are half way there. Just grab some suede spray, saphir product, brush etc. and you are good
or just use any smooth, not cold, hard object. A smooth plastic pot scraper, back of a warm spoon... There is nothing special about bone, despite the hype. It is hard, smooth, and close to room temperature - qualities that can be found in many objects.
