    Yes, last I spoke with Allison she was going to check on production. The schedule said end of this month, but she said it may take longer.

    Just got mine after waiting a month, as AE had to handcraft one in my particular size....I'm loving mine! Using red laces instead of the green laces on mine....Enjoy!

    What happens if you throw some polish on there and press them back a little? Honestly, they just look a little ruffled to me. If you push the other one's forward, I think it'd look the same. They just need to sit back a little better, no?

    I do this regularly with burgundy shell Daltons and am happy with the way it looks. Wife and I spent a few hours in Georgetown (DC) a couple weekends ago; in every store the sales folks were all "man, nice kicks" and "that's the reason why boot season is fantastic". All the attention forces me to keep them even more brushed and clean than usual. No photos at the moment, unfortunately.

    I typically have all my pants hemmed with little to no break. When I wear boots I may cuff them once, maybe 1.5" or so just to show a little more boot. I don't cuff them to the top of the boot or anything.

    I just roll my jeans if I want to show off my boots. Adds a little contrast too.

    This might be an angle, but they look alright to
    me.

    Nefarious, cincikid & dapper - I agree that the pics don't show the proper angle of the... 'fanning' happening on the right shoe's pinking; some of it fans up, other parts lay against the vamp. It's like it's too long, or wasn't cut/stitched correctly. In contrast, the other shoe's pinking is shorter, lays against the vamp, and has some burnish along it's edge... you can see the darker edge to the left shoe's cap. It may seem nit picky, but if both shoes were fanning up, I'd deal with it. I've seen seconds with fewer aesthetic issues. At just about retail, this shouldn't be so apparent.

    I assume black McTavishes aren't really a dress shoe, and not nearly enough so that you can get by with having them as your only black dress shoe, right?

    Quote:They are not at all a dress shoe due to the contrast edge, split-reverse welt, rough leather and extensive brogueing. If you want just one black dress shoe, the Park Avenue is the answer (at least if you want to stick with an Allen Edmonds shoe).

    Quote:If you are looking for an alternative from AE, you could do the Fifith Ave, or maybe something from the Independence Collection, like the Harrison or whatever. For non-AE, I like the Charles Tyrwhitt black captoe (the $320 one) made by Loake.
