    Dammit! I haven't even had a chance to wear my Bourbon Strands out, and I'm already salivating over some eventual Walnut McAllisters...

    Nice. A MTO walnut or truffle/cappuccino Patriot sounds interesting.

    Ugh, I know. I'm fortunate enough to work at a very laid-back company, but it means I hardly get a chance to dress well. I'll have to take the girl out as an excuse to wear 'em.

    Enjoy! Let us know how they crease for you. I love mine as well but not thrilled with the creasing above the cap. Mixed responses on what should be expected but I think they should crease below the cap as they fit perfectly and are very comfortable.

    Mine crease a little on the toe cap. However, the overall style of the walnut is so burnished/distressed in general that it doesn't really matter to me.

    You're going to love the versatility of these. I wear them with everything from jeans to slacks and a sport coat. Enjoy!

    I just picked up the Dalton for $240. It's my first Allen Edmonds and my first boot. I can't wait to receive it! Hopefully the hurricane won't delay the shipping too much.

    That's a great price. I'm guessing you were able to get seconds, correct? Enjoy and please post pics.

    I tried two different sizes in the Malverns and could not get them to work. Really wish they would have. Will be trying Loakes next, and I hope I have better luck.

    I believe they still make the Jefferson in walnut as well... possible that you can get the broken-in leather feel of the Independence collection and your walnut wing at the same time.

    First post, so go easy. Bought a pair of walnut strands with the v tread Sunday. Should be delivered in a few weeks and I got a 20% discount using the partners card in Dallas (charity function that gives you 20% off at over 500 retailers after you donate/buy a card). Was looking for a black shoe, but just fell in love with the walnut strands and couldn't turn my back on them.

    I'm traveling right now so don't have photos, but I just received a pair of the burgundy shell Park Avenues that I ordered during the sale. I specifically waited until they were out of stock in my size (10.5C) so that I would get the new shell darker finish. Indeed, they are much darker than the old finish that I felt was too pink-hued. These are closer to Alden's #8, although more red/black than eggplant. Very, very, nice, rich finish.

    If you're going to get a pair of the burgundy shells I would highly suggest calling ahead to make sure you get the new finish.
