    I'm not saying that people should cake it on, but I condition and polish. Moderation is the key.

    On a related note, Leather Honey for the win!

    Are any of the outlets having any seconds sales right now, or in the near future that anyone's aware of?

    I'm curious, what did you use Leather Honey on? I used them on an ex-girlfriend's boots and (as expected) it significantly darkened them. Any idea what the "active" ingredients are in it?

    Thanks! I hope it does come out great.

    I requested for the moc toe and the stitching at the back to be tan so in guessing fox stitching is the stitch at the back. MWS would probably be the best person to give a reply on this.

    I requested the top line piping/slip beading (again thanks to MWS) to be navy, so I think that's what binding means.

    Yeah unfortunately full price. I justified it to myself by thinking that the MTO Eagle County at $197 offsets the full price of the MTO Grayson. Haha.

    Thanks watch.

    Sadly, Allison won't be at the event on Tuesday.

    You are right, you are missing a chukka.

    Thank you my good man.
    (My amex does not thank you.)

    I have a pair of chukkas from them....will have to root around in the closet to find the model.
    My bayfield's are getting a fair amount of wear.

    I am lusting after the Shaker Heights in chili.

    I've used it mainly on shoes and boots (AE and other). I'm not sure what the active ingredients are, but I highly recommend it. It makes even dry leather boots feel as smooth and soft as can be. I let them sit through the night and wipe them a bit in the morning. I've never noticed any darkening. It's the best conditioner that I've tried.

    I have the same experience. Ordered a cappuccino Lexington on Aug 30. Failed inspection and was told they will be ready Nov 15. My emails are also not being answered now. I'm not sure what to make of it.

    Fyi amazon has walnut calf Daltons for 296. That was the best price I had ever seen on Dalton Firsts

    Can anyone comment on the average wait time for a response from Allison on MTO projects? I sent her an email on Tuesday about a pair of MTO eagle county, and haven't heard back yet. I'm not in a rush by any means, I just want to know if she got the email. I want to be able to get a pair before the price increases.

    I've sent an email to Allen Edmonds asking about them already, but does any know what the deal is with these Park Avenues? I found them at Nordstrom Rack and they fit great but have an all rubber sole. They also don't say "Park Avenue" inside the shoe which doesn't matter except I want to make sure they're the same level of quality as a regular Park Avenue, as I paid the same price for it as they charge for a standard pair with a leather sole.
