    Great looking shoe, congratulations!


    It sounds like they would fill a void in your shoe wardrobe. The McAllister is a classic shoe, it would be hard to go wrong, and the current price is a good one.

    Bradleys today:

    Yep. Black and burgundy. I'm excited. Thanks for the info on the calf leather.

    IMO, $245 seems like an everyday price to me, so unless you need them soon, I would wait until a better price came along.


    I like the proportions on the McCallister better than the Lombards too.

    Those McCallisters look super sweet. Congrats!

    I found myself not wearing my Park Aves too much so I’m putting two excellent-condition park aves up for sale. See my sig. for details.

    That is a gorgeous color -- is it the burnished brown?

    Thanks for the shell Bradley fix!

    Still waiting on my replacements original ordered Dec.22. Yes might have to wait but AE does make things right, can't ask for much more than that. Wish most of the vendors I deal with at work were as good they are.

    Someone posted their Burgundy Shell Cambridges earlier in this thread. May have been Bucksfan.

    That is a beautiful version of walnut shell. Seems darker than others I've seen. I really like it!

    Due to popular demand, here are my Cambridges from a few other angles (and in higher resolution - I just noticed I have a piece of shell to remove from one of the brogueing holes in the right shoe - I didn't even notice that when I have the shoe in front of me).
