    Thanks snoogz. You are correct, these are MTOd Lakeshore Drive in brogue suede with braided chili cord and tassels.

    One of the first tassel loafers that makes me consider getting a pair. I think they look fantastic.

    Hey idiot, your vision for MTO options are phenomenal. I would have never been able to think up these well put together cohesive options.

    You should design shoes for AE lol. I'm telling you, they need something.

    Wearing my walnut Larchmonts today. This is my first experience with the 3 last and likely to be my last given the creasing along the toe. I think my next pick up will likely be either a pair of Mora's or the McGregor in chili.

    I'm having trouble seeing anything irregular.

    Having said that I do have creasing issues on the 3 last, but the fit is so damn good I don't care...

    I think it's par for the course; don't give up on them yet.

    I have not been in touch with Allison except for receiving the invoice from her this morning.

    What email?

    I think Tjyoung was going to ask about some specs being off.

    What are you guys using to protect your suede these days? In hesitant about the spray, but I suppose if I'm conservative with it, no longer term issues will arise.

    Yup. I'm missing the intrigue.


    I use the AE spray waterproofer. Others swear by tarrago nano. I've not seen any complaints about either.

    I have used the nano spray on mine but none are older than a year ao not sure of any long term issues. They have received a spray late spring and just again last week.

    So far no issues

    Will post a picture later but just opened my seconds black shaker heights...everything looks beautiful leather wise and sole wise...tongues were in straight...the biggest thing I was pissed off about was they did not come in a boot box....but a regular sized one. Then I spotted it....the tweed on one panel is stiched in with the pattern at a 45 degree angle instead of up and down....lol

    What is even more odd is that I am not sure how much it bothers me...probably will send them back ....but then again...

    Oh. Just call her if you're concerned. My guess is that you will get yours soon. They're not going to not take your money :)

    I think id keep it, especially if you got a good price. The black ones are rare. And kinda awesome.

    So you were the guy I was shaking my fist at when I discovered one day that the 13D was gone?!

    @peppercorn78, he needs to return them. That's too much of defect to keep.

    I was just curious to know if invoices roll out in one batch or order by order; I hadn't received anything from Allison, so was interested to see if maybe yours was just the first of a series or if I'd missed something in my inbox. Not sure about the intrigue comment, though. None was intended. I think Kahuna's post gave a little clarity.

    Nothing here yet. I still haven't provided payment details, either. I've been emailing and/or calling daily but haven't gotten a response, or caught her at her desk.

    Also, FWIW, my SA suggested I order a half size longer and keep the width on the EC - for anyone wondering about sizing. I'm normally a 10.5 eee, so that would be an 11 eee!
