    I am patiently waiting for my MTO.
    I am 3.5 weeks in.
    I have a feeling they are going to drop about the same time as I have 2 other preorders due.

    Great boot! Congrats.
    :slayer: Navy pants are fine. Would like to see how this color compares to AEs current #8/burgundy.

    I was looking at the old catalogs online and noticed AE used to use "Black Cherry" shell cordovan.
    I wonder if it was any different than the burgundy (or how it compares).

    I know that AE's burgundy was a lot lighter than the current version. Maybe, like Alden's ravello.

    I have no idea if it's the same, but for what it's worth, Freemans Sporting Club sells the Kenilworth in "Cherry" cordovan:

    It is pretty dark in most lights and I like that about it. In bright sunlight it comes out but not much. It sometimes has a purple look to it.

    The perfect model/leather combination imo. Too bad it goes for such a high price. I wonder why freemans exclusives never show up on seconds lists like other retailers' models that AE produces for.

    They will turn up every now and then. I've come across a pair or two in a brick and mortar outlet, so they should be in the computer system as well. Also, see FREEDBIRD's listings. Some of his are from FSC: http://www.styleforum.net/classifieds/feedback/index/current/classifieds/user_id/23784

    Damn ! I am so jealous. Cash flow and logistics prevented me from ordering the Merlot MacNeil. Jeffersonville said they'll keep an eye out if any seconds pop up in my size, but said it's unlikely. They look great. Burgundy MacNeils should be a regular model. Otherwise, I'll have to keep saving for the Cordovan ones.

    Thanks! I was a little worried they would be too much with all the broguing but the color keeps it in check. I actually drained my clothes/shoes budget and wasn't anticipating on purchasing them. My wife surprised me for sweetest day. She's a keeper. I think they are my favorite AE's so far. Although once my MTO cordovans come in that may change. [​IMG]
