    They look like they are on the 1 last because they resemble the Bayfield boot and the fit fairly similar to my Dalton. I'm gonna give the factory a call tomorrow morning and get some more insight into the last though because honestly I'm not sure.... I'll def get back to you...!

    As a "starter pair" for a brown dress shoe what would you guys recommend? I like the look of wing tips but nothing too out of control. Would appreciate input. Gonna get fitted at a store around here and then patiently wait on eBay I think.

    Thought I'd share my AE collection now that I'm used to my new Strands. A quick cleaning/conditioning and then polishing reduced that "over-burnished" look I was complaining about. I expect it will only improve!

    Top left to right:
    Sanford (Burgundy), Lloyd (Burgundy), Strand (Walnut), Fifth Avenue (Walnut).

    Bottom right to left:
    Park Avenue (Black), Strand (Black), McTavish (Black).

    Missing: Krause boot in Rust (in the mail!).

    Nice masernaut, is the Lloyd a discontinued model? Looks really nice, where did you get it from?

    Yes, it's discontinued. I picked it up on eBay along with the black Strand. It fits very snugly. Better than the Sanford (both are on the 7 last).

    Ahhh, starting to look like a proper boot in my rotation now:

    2nd photo more accurate to colour.

    The toe gouge is pretty significant, but I'll just have to get over it.

    Fantastic work, I think the gouge actually adds some character. While you couldn't wear these in a more professional sense, any other environment these are great.
