    Regrettably, I was informed yesterday that their distribution center could not locate the burgundy Dundee that I ordered. :facepalm:

    In return for the mishap, AE is offering me a decent discount for a First in any color and rush it in 2 weeks. :) I think I will go with the dark brown that I original wanted.

    I guess that sucks and is good all in one...how did you size the Dundee? Does it have a lot of extra toe room length?

    Most of my AEs are 10D, so that + based on the countless reading I have had here and elsewhere, I am staying with 10D.

    Long Branches, freshly Obenhaufed and polished. Could have gone a half size up and width down on these.

    Shell cordovan Harrisons on ebay. Any ideas on what's going on with the creasing near the start of the laces?

    Wow, someone else made a pair? Are they 10.5D? Possibly could be a seconds of my MTO?

    Mine has no creasing there...

    Yours have no creasing because you've barely worn them! ;)

    I'm sure there is a silent plurality that lurks in this thread and the MTO thread, but don't ever make themselves known to us, piggybacking off of some of the designs we post ;)

    I dunno. Someone said they were interested in doing them. No worries here.

    I just purchased my first pair of shell from the PW store. Daltons for $325! I've been wearing AE for about 4 years, but never ponied up for shell. Excited doesn't even begin to explain how I feel right now!

    First of all - Welcome! Secondly, you should be excited. Those boots are awesome to begin with and shell cordovan only makes it sweeter. And the price is the cherry on top! Enjoy!

    Very funny (and true!) I did want to mention to AndyC that the $325 price is a teaser. You'll get hooked and never see that price again!

    Not a day goes by when I don't think about that post. Should have heeded those words.

    As many say, it didn't happen unless you post pics...

    However, welcome!

    Ain't that the truth. I'm fortunate that I can hardly ever find shell that fits my feet. The only pair left in the shoe bank are some #8 Leeds on which I think I'll pounce in a day or two... and I might have them shipped to my office to avoid the wrath of my lovely wife.

    Anyone have any opinion on burgundy dundees with chinos and nice jeans? I have a pair on hold for the the sale tomorrow, but had originally wanted brown, which I cannot get. The burgundy cordovan is beautiful in their dress shoes, but I'm worried it's too dressy for casual.

    This is my first pair or cordovan shoes, so I want to get it right if I'm going to buy them.

    They look great! Wish they would have had a pair in my size when that happened. Congrats on the 10th pair of shell, I seem to recall trying to warn you when you were considering your first pair of shell to see what it was all about [​IMG] You have a fantastic collection of shell shoes GOP, very well done.
    Agree, welcome! LOL I have that post and link by englade321 saved in my google docs. It should be in a shell hall of fame somewhere.
