    Very nicely done, I really like those. Once again the AE website didn't do them justice when they were available.

    I also agree that #8 shell is versatile and allows even more variety. I do like my walnut shoes and boots a lot, however it is more restrictive in what it can be paired with. As you pointed out the dark brown boots and chocolate Daltons would be very similar. Once you have a few other colors covered most certainly go for the chocolates though!

    Outstanding. Do you have flankers of black and burgundy shell Dalton's on order? [​IMG]

    Stopped by the store this morning to try on the Daltons, but I was smitten by the new Hamptons and Regent Street. The contrasting Grain/Smooth leather is great looking and has a very English/premium feel to it (looks much, much better than the website). As for the Regent Street in Chili- they will be my next shoes. I've always wanted a pair of MacNeils but the 7 last doesnt fit me well because of the clipped toe- my pinky toe would not have enough room in the 7 last. The 4 last which the Regent Street is very similar, but it seems to have a little bit of a smaller heel, and the toe is a little bit more square, allowing more space for my toes. If your experience with the MacNeils are similar to mine, the 4 last will be an EXCELLENT fit for you! Sorry in advance for the blurry Hamptons pic- you don't see the fine contrasting details here, but it gives you a good idea of the shape and feel.

    Edit: Amazon is offering a $50 discount for certain new styles, the Regent Street is included. A good chance to jump on first qualities for seconds prices

    I contacted the Shoe Bank in regards to a pair of Park Avenues. They gave a quote of $258 without shipping. When is the best time to order seconds? And how low will the price go on these?

    Before you do that, i would consider getting a pair during their big sale in september... If you do not have any near you, call up the Boston store on Newbury St. I am sure they could sell you a pair at the discount then ship them. Doesn't hurt to call them and just check and see...

    I was just in touch with the shoe bank about seconds, and they said 15% off those seconds. That's all I can tell you - somebody else may know more (i.e. whether they have a different price for other models than the one I was looking at or a different discount for 1st quality)

    sale is between 15-20% off, however most models will be 15%... i would assume the ones with 20% off are their summer shoes that they are trying to get rid of, or the ugly ones lol....

    Thanks for sharing the pic; shows the color of the boots very accurately. I have the walnut shell Daltons and have just ordered them in the #8/burgundy. Even after getting the walnut shell Daltons, I'm still very attracted to the walnut calf version just because of the color (I guess it's got more yellow/red/orange in it and it's more burnished).

    So my question is what was your rationale for getting both the walnut shell and walnut calf versions? Hopefully it'll be a good sounding rationale that I can use when my wife asks me why I've bought another pair of boots that looks identical to one I already have.

    Hello gents. Been wearing my Fifth Streets for about a week now and notice there is a crease on the inside arch area of the boot. Is this normal? I am afraid this might be a symptom of being too tight.

    either that or it's a symptom of your shoes trying to exact revenge on you for your questionable choice of username... :nodding:
