    Search for AE shoe care 101 there's a PDF with all of the recommended products by shoe and colour.

    Seriously. Those almost remind me of the ruby I bought for my wife's engagement ring. Someday twenty years down the road, I hope my MacNeils look like that -- maybe I should start keeping them on the windowsill when I'm not wearing them to let the sun do its work...

    Just notice that the bourbons are 15% off sale on AE site (FIFTHS, PAs, Strands, Mora 2, Kenniworths, and McAllisters) at $295

    I had an admittedly gin-induced dream of an email from Allison telling me MTOs were done and looked great and were on the way. It was so... So vivid.

    Is it just me or is the Strand in bourbon the only style that has a darker shade of brown vs the other models in bourbon?

    For example, the Kenilworth in bourbon doesn't look as dark as the Strand.

    Those look awesome. Do they only do Burgundy Macneils in cordovan? I'd love to get a pair myself, but I can't justify spending more than $300/pair on my budget.

    Amazing how nicely high-quality shell ages. Just checked these on the AE website and yours look much nicer.

    Does the new bourbon color have a proper polish yet from AE? What do you guys use on your bourbon shoes.

    I remember reading that the bourbon they had on the site was an old version of the color.




    I was putting some Reno on my new bourbon Daltons before their maiden voyage today and noticed that what came off on the rag was damn near green/black. I have no idea what polish to use on them..

    I have been using the Saphir Cognac color and have been very happy with it
