    Quote:Those cleaned up very well. I purchased the natural edge dressing for treating my Elgin's and Mctavish because I was afraid of moisture absorption through the edges of the soles but haven't gotten around to it. You have just increased the importance of that priority to me, thank you for the warning. I hope the warping goes away for you.

    If you look on the right side of the left shoe near where the two lines of broguing meet (I can't think of a better way to describe it), you can see a sort of "bubble" that is what I was talking about. The uppers basically got soaked, and though I did the whole newspaper inside thing, I believe it caused that spot to be misshapen.

    Your foot may be different, but I'm an 11B in the 5 last (Strand) and I'm the same size on the 1 last (Dalton, Bayfield). Post up pics when you get them!

    Related, does anyone have experience with the Neumoras? I know the quality issues have been supposedly fixed, but I need a second opinion on if the toes are too squared off. Thoughts?

    I personally like the slightly squared off toe (see the previous pages for my parkway pictures). The fit is a little bit larger than the 5 last, I would say about 1/4 inch longer than the 5 and a little bit wider around the ball off the foot. It fits my foot really well because I am in between a D and E on the 5 last, and this seems to work. Some find it large enough to size down 1/2 a size from the 5 last.

    I'm not digging the 3 last much. I think the Rutledge is a beautiful shoe and was considering it...but I just can't get over that toe. I have the Bel-Air, so I don't mind a slightly squared-off toe. To me, the Neumora, Flatiron, and Rutledge are just a bit too much. I'll stick with the 5 and 8 last.

    Hi all - Just wanted to share a story.

    I have been looking to pick up a brown boot for quite some time. I have thought of multiple manufacturers, and in the end it came down to the Dalton (I like both colors) and the brown fifth street. After much hemming and hawing, I decided to try on a pair of the walnut dalton's at a local AE store. This was a terrible experience - the service was abominable. Really, borderline rude to me.

    But still, I wanted to purchase a pair of these boots! Torn between the chocolate and the walnut daltons, I went into the State St. AE Boston store, where I tried on the chocolate brown Dalton's. They were perfect. In addition, the service was wonderful. I was helped by James and could not have been happier. I purchased the boots today and am very, very happy with them!

    I know that seconds are on sale right now, but felt like I really wanted them today...and plus, the one pair of Dalton in chocolate brown that is a second isn't discounted that much, and happens to have a pretty bad scuff on it (so says the person on the phone). So I'll take this opportunity to applaud James and to boo the other store!

    A

    What are some good models that work with trousers and a dress shirt? I already have Strands in Walnut.

    Looking for something in Black. Perhaps Fifth Avenue or Park Avenue?
