So, maybe I didn't win this race, but I have just received my MTO Bayfields and they are magnificent! The fit is right on. I see no flaws at all. I even love the smell of these fresh, new, made-just-for-me shoes. This is my first MTO, so please forgive my excitement. Now, I'm just waiting for the Townleys and the Dundees. I hope I don't catch "shell MTO" fever! Apparently, there is no cure. Edit - "Off the rack and on my back" - I can't help but wear them today. Not my usual M.O., but these are outstanding! Anyone know a good source for fat brown laces?? These scream fro thicker laces.
