    I like these better, white is just hard for me to consider in a dressier shoe

    Thanks, I really am torn. However, these are in no way a dress shoe--especially with the natural sole. Would be worn with chinos and perhaps jeans.

    Just wore my Neumoras the first time and both shoes squeak up a storm. What the hell...

    My RL Saunders chukkas were waiting for me at the door tonight. Ordered a 12d to see if they would work for my usually 13d or 12.5e feet (since nothing was available above a size 12). Length is great. Toebox is just about adequate, with maybe a tiny amount of pinching on my Pinky toe. I expect this to stretch a bit over time, since they're calf.

    Very nice.
    I wouldn't personally have gotten that color but other than that you're golden.

    hhaa ya probably right, but considering i have walnut, bourbon, and cordovan brown for the strand, a 4th pair doesn't make that much sense. Having them for the sake of the rarity would be nice, but there is nothing i can't get away with having the walnut calf compared to the cordovan

    Another pair will come along at some point

    So I sold off my last pair of burgundy shell Mac Neils because they never fit right. Saved up and bought a pair of firsts. The new finish is WAY darker than it used to be, but I like it. Here are the shoes:

    Compared to an older pair of burgundy shell Leeds, they look like they're a whole different color of shell:

    So besides my shell Mac Neils that came in today, I have a pair of BB walnut strands and orange and white Neumoks on the way. Wife also said something about ordering me another pair of custom Neumoks... I think she's a keeper.[​IMG]

    Oooh nice. How did you score the Leno tickets? (Only part that really interested me)
    Just caught a Craig Ferguson show. The man is a genius.

    What model are these? Discontinued? I don't see anything similar on the website.

    They are Wolverine 1000 mile shell cordovan 744 LTD edition (2nds). Made by AE. I believe they only make 1,000 per year. These obviously didn't pass QC due to the tear on the tongue.

    Gorgeous! Ugh...I am kick, kick, kicking myself for not pulling the trigger on the last pair of these in my size over the weekend! Congrats on your purchase...you made the right call. I'm a total newb to the world of AE shoes...does anyone know if/when we're likely to see prices on 2nds like we saw over the weekend? I'm in love with these Saunders!

    Kristle, the manager at the Jeffersonville, OH seconds store who started the "great Jeffersonville boot riot of '12", asked me to say that in addition to the flyer sales that:

    LaSalle’s are also $134.50
    And all golf shoes are $169
    Park Avenues $219

    If you don't have a regular SA I can not recommend her enough. You can call her at (740) 948 9033

    I love those, very beautiful!! Turns out they also have suede and black but those are the first ones I would like to pick up and add to the Dundee collection. Very nice.

    Depends on where you live and your style. I just made reservations for a sporting clays shoot in the Catskills in the middle of July. If I don't show up wearing boots I would be asked to turn in my man card and asked to shoot in a pink tutu. Depends on the style of boots too however....

    The white is a bitch to keep clean, you end up dying them not polishing them. I like some saddle shoes and white linen contrast such as the strawfut and the BB I just got but IMO those shoes with a lot of white on them do look like golf shoes. I do like the solid Navy I worked up playing around but that is just me, YMMV and good luck. You have very good style although we disagree on shoes, take a deep breathe and take your time and get it right. As I'm sure you will.

    Those are really quite different. Here's a pic of the old ones for comparison, too. But I like your new ones a lot; maybe better: [​IMG]

    Here are some quick snaps of my Tan Sandersons and Brown Slatons. I can't believe I got them for $130/pair. They are fantastic. Both are double-soled. I love the Sanderson, very handsome shoes. The Slatons are like the blucher version of the Fifth Ave but the cap toe is much better proportionalized. Overall, I'm very happy with the purchases.
