    Google image search is your friend. I spent 15 minutes looking through them last night. Lots of walnut out there.

    Go to the shoe care thread there is a ton on this probably 5 pages from the end of the thread...seems a combo of vinegar and distilled water helps get the oil out.. Scrubbing will just do what you discovered and remove the finish as Bourbon is a finish not tanned that way.

    Anyway try the vinegar remedy...

    For me (and the market)!! I always thought the MacNeil was too blobby and loved the look for the Williams, Larchmont, RL Sanderson but cannot ever fit in the 222 last. Many AE customers cannot; most can fit in the 5.

    Larchmont is on the 3 last. Anyway, I understand your point and glad you dog them. They do look nice. It's just a little odd to me that they sell 3 LWB but no shortwing bluchers or saddles.

    But I hear you. To each his own. I've got the awesomely clunky MacNeil and the sleeker Regent Street LWBs so I understand the appeal of the gunboat...

    This might have been the original pair that inspired me to get in on the brown shell Townley GMTO. [​IMG]

    I didn't set out today to pair gray flannel with CXL Long Branches but guess what arrived a day early.

    So, I'm wearing them around the office checking on fit. My first foray with the 1 last. Ordered my normal size in the 5,7, and 2. So far, so good.

    People here say the 1 is shorter than the 5 but I perceive no difference as far as ball-to-heel length.

    These are seconds for $199. I'm hard pressed to find anything wrong with them. I'm inclined to save the $70 bucks from the RDA sale price and keep them.

    Got my promontory points last night! You can see the workmanship errors but at $160 I can't complain. Fit is a bit too tight with the orthotics. Should I leave them in when breaking in the boots or not?

    I bought my Park Avenues and my Dalton boots at the same time. I'm usually an 8.5. I had to get an 8D in the Park Ave 5 last. but had to size up to the 8.5D in the Dalton 1 last.

    Hope that helps.

    Longbranch tends to run big and not 100% true to the 511 typical fit

    PSA:

    With a heavy heart, I'm Letting any 11 E footed people's know that there is a gorgeous cappuccino dundee at the madison store in NYC. The shell color is so light it could pass for walnut. I tried to make it work with my 10.5 3E dogs, but the heels slipped too much. On a tall boot like Dalton it may have been fine.
