    Cinciikid - Those look great. The shell looks amazing out of the box.

    I'm a bit down.

    The brown Patriot cordovan webgems i ordered last month never made the 10/15 promised ship date. I called in about them last week to which I was told that they would have to email me an update.

    No email ever came so I called in to AE late today. I was told that the uppers did not pass inspection pushing back delivery an extra couple of weeks.

    I was relying on having these shoes no later than the first of the month since I;ll be travelling, but now that is in doubt.

    On the flipside , all of you 2nds fiends will be glad to get a shot at a pair in 10EEE soon.

    I don't really need a plain-toe boot, but if I could have an Allen Edmonds plain-toe boot that is one of a kind, I might need that.

    The leather on those daltons look more "coated" if you will. Do AE boots have a different finish than their shoes? It would make sense to me if they did have a less porous leather or coating for their boots.

    As far as $500 range suits, I can vouch for the Benjamin line of suiting from eHaberdasher. They are fully canvassed and easily worth much more than they are being sold for. Sizing is a nice slim fit. However, the only gray they have at this time is medium gray (I've been lobbying Ben to get some lighter grays...none yet). If this is a super casual, outdoor wedding, you could always try a yellow or purple gingham shirt with the opposite color solid knit tie. If it's not that casual, I'd go with a white shirt and a yellow tie with a purple lapel flower. Walnut Strands with either of these choices, but get a matching belt.

    If he's going to roll the dice on a Benjamin suit from EHaberdasher, he needs to order it immediately and post fit pictures. While the fabric and full canvas are nice, the cut does not work for all builds. I had to return mine because the collar gap was beyond extreme.

    I would recommend Kent Wang's MTM program. Many have done it for their wedding and the cost is somewhere around $800. Well worth the additional $300 in my opinion.

    When did you order these? I'm so excited to get my Cappuccino shell Jeffersons. Hopeful that they come in early.

    Thanks. I've been to the Westport store, which is closer to me than Stamford....just curious if it was still there.

    Good choice. Hope you enjoy them. And welcome to the forum.

    If you end up liking the Daltons and they fit well, consider getting a shell version later.

    Walnut, Bourbon, Brown. Sorry for bad photo, but hopefully this helps. Disclaimer, my Bourbon Strands were very different from my Bourbon Flatirons - your mileage may vary.
