    You have - and are going to have - and amazing collection. I hope you can take some pictures of all your shell Dundees together, as well as all of your shell shoes. Congratulations!

    I'm sure they were just as happy to take your order as you were to hear back from them. You must be listed as VIP in their database!

    It's the color in the picture they sent to you. It just looks artificial and the tone is off somehow. Could just be bad pics, though.

    Interesting comments today while wearing my new Stafford wingtip boots to work for the first time today. My office staff (women from their 20s-50s) complimented me on them early on until my ophthalmic technician noticed they were 'ankle boots' and not regular dress shoes. She seemed shocked and the ladies in the office commented that they thought they looked odd and didn't like 'ankle boots' on men, that they seemed like ladies shoes. One even said she'd make her boyfriend throw those out if he had a pair. Has anyone else experienced this or do I just work with very sheltered, uncultured women?

    They all have smelly woo-hoo-dillies, therefore their opinion is invalid.

    Here's what I would do in regards to your uncultured staff:

    Well you do live kind of close to LA, (Lower Alabama).... Sorry, that opening was huge and I just had to hit it.

    While I am not fond of the term uncultured there is some truth to the fact that they likely are not exposed to men dressing a bit finer and are sheltered as you said. Where I work and live now dress boots are a bit more common than where you are, I have received nothing but complements on them including the term sexy by one lady. Even across the river over in Wisconsin LOL. I have a sister that works for an optometrist in the "Valley" in Northern Appalachia on the NY/Pa border. I could see if her Doc came to work wearing dress boots she would comment to me that he had "lost it" and bought half a pair of boots. But I certainly wouldn't think less of her for saying so.

    I have a lovely pair of MTM paddock boots from a small local outfit. Last weekend I happened to be wearing them into a Lucky Brand store. The saleswoman was mesmerized by them, in a good way.

    I agree with the above that location may have something to do with it -- my experience was in Tysons Corner, VA, where houses start at the seven-figure mark -- but regardless, be glad you aren't the one lady's boyfriend and don't sweat their opinions.

    What a fantastic experience. It's nice to see there are still companies that are happy to make this sort of thing possible.

    Oh, nice shoes too! :D

    Wearing my dark brown Jeffersons today. Wonderful leather.

    Just might be my favorite AE wingtip bal (although that could change pending AE's new shell finishes).
