    ^ It took about 5 days for me.

    Did anyone not get a receipt with the shipment?

    While they look pretty beat up, they are a well made shoe with some great calfskin. They should come back nicely with some work (as you said). Good luck, please post some before & after pics. It looks like a nice project.

    Thanks for the feedback guys!

    If you don't mind me asking, what color/brand polish do you use?

    Nothing too fancy. I use neutral cream by melatonin and lincoln wax. A couple different shades of brown to help the burnishing. Depends on the mood i am in:slayer:

    Here are the boots I rotate with:

    Brown AE Bayfield
    Brown suede Santoni Neville Chukka
    Black Ferrgamo Giorgio Chukka

    Just got my AE Fifth Street in black. Love them.

    I feel like I am set for casual boots, and am looking at dress boots. Looking for something in burgundy or a dark brown. I love the Daltons in dark brown, and in walnut shell.

    I just bought my first pair of reasonable dress shirts (AE Strand Cap-Toe Oxford: http://www.amazon.com/Allen-Edmonds...KZR0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1337037720&sr=8-1 in walnut). I've read a lot about shoe care on this website, but I was curious what people's thoughts were specifically for what they're doing on their AE in this thread. I bought the Walnut AE shoe polish that I plan to put on every few wearings, a cedar shoe tree, and a brown brush. Is that sufficient or should I be doing anything else?

    Thanks

    So I got my second pair of 2 for $200 today. The first pair were walnut Lombards, which I sent back because they were too small. Though I am a 9.5E on the 5-last, not so much on the 2. Too bad they didn't have a 10E left, great looking shoe. I'm getting a pair of Brown/Brown Strawfuts to replace the Lombards though. Below is the photo of my second pair, Cambridge brogue. These are also 9.5E and fit a little tighter than my McTavish, but think they'll be fine. The Cambridge is beautiful and from what I can tell, brand new.

    The McTavish, Neumok, etc. use a rougher leather and will be slightly looser than their calf counterparts.

    Thanks! Love the McTavish; so comfortable. Hope the Cambridge loosens up a bit. They are my first pair of suede shoes.

    Ah, right, now I remember that you posted that. Sorry they didn't work out. I got lucky with mine, though I haven't worn them yet.

    I think the 678 last shoes are pretty clearly described as being able to accommodate orthotics. So you'd see that in the description if it were the case.

    I have seen a lot of Hindsdales at Nordstrom Last Call, usually for about $200. If you have one near you, might be worth swinging by to see them in person. Nice shoes, I think.

    BTW, not you've got me looking at those McClains on sale.. but burgundy only. ;)
