    If a person is in the game long enough, QC issues can come from just about anywhere - and I have had my share with AE. As of late I experienced it with C&J burgundy shell cordovan captoe boots from BB (Peal & Co.) - retail $998. They arrived at my door with numerous nicks, scratches, etc. And worse yet was that the finish on the upper near the top of the boots was literally rubbing off. Yes - they were promptly returned. That was my first bad experience with a C&J product.

    Does anyone here have the Rutledge, particularly in the walnut? Would you say the leather is a bit cracky?

    Can't, or my feet won't fit width-wise across the ball (I wear a 14 EEE). I suspect it's the last; these are the only shoes I own on the 8 last.

    I have them in the burnished brown. What do you mean by "cracky"?

    Burgundy shell MacNeils arrived today from the shoebank. Look nearly perfect but are too small! I tried on the same size in leather at a local store and they fit perfectly, but not so with the pair that arrived. Too bad, so sad.

    You ordered the Lubbock? To put it in Brooks Brothers terms, that's like buying the 346 brand and then telling everyone how bad the quality of Brooks Brothers is. There are much better options for your rainy day shoe.

    I do and I have to agree. As much as I love the shoe and how it looks (I'm actually wearing it right now) the left toe cap has developed a spiderweb like pattern that seems to be a crack in the finish. On top of that, the leather is ridiculously fragile to the point where it dented when I dropped an empty file folder (thin cardboard). My shoe shiner also accidentally nipped it with his nail while brushing it and left a deep gouge in the leather.
