Is there suppose to be a step like that at the toe-cap?
Oh, you mean where the leather seems to be overlapping? I'm pretty sure that's normal construction method, though it probably doesn't show through like that on most shoes. Honestly I really had to have it spelled out to notice it, and personally wouldn't think anything of it. I'll bet that it ends up being passable.
Honestly it's in the best possible location for a flaw, being so close to the cap line. If it were further along towards the toe, it would be much more noticeable.
But the Harrison is a rather expensive shoe, so if you're not happy with it, definitely send it back for a second opinion.
Are those shell?
I saw the Lowry hill and knew I wanted a pair. I wanted to get a custom pair, and emailed Allison.
I hope this is a good place to post my thoughts, and get feedback.
She said I could get the Chili Leather with Butyl leather soles for the $199 sale.
I'd have these made with the Butyl leather sole for better water resistance.
I had this hair-brained idea, and hope to get some feedback. I thought it might be cool
to get a two-toned model. She said she could do it for the $199 (burgundy and white).
I have a couple thoughts on that, and could use the help. I'm far from a designer.
I thought the sides could be burgundy, and the top kiltie be white, with the tassels being burgundy.
Or a contrast of that, the sides being white and the top kiltie being burgundy with white tassels.
These would be for "fun" days, fridays at office that have themes, or for "funky" feeling days
that I just want to be a bit 'out' there.
I always wanted a two tone, and love the Nashua. Is this too far out there?
What do you guys think?
On another note, she said that Independence lining is a no go, the price would have to bump to full Independence price point.
I just received my Black Heather Grain McAllister MTO. Any suggestions on how to rock this?
Heather black grain
Tone on tone upper stitching
Blue inner lining
Reverse welt / tan stitching
That's a tough one. I would wear that Probably only with jeans/streetwear. Congrats on your MTO, though. I just got a shipping notice for my navy suede McA's...
...on your feet.
These are MacNeil 5's offered as a Webgem in April. The sole is Dainite. The welt is split reverse welt (I'm not sure what color it is considered).
That's a pretty cool make-up. Besides denim, I'd probably wear them with chinos in various shades of grey. I think olive pants could work too.
Nice. I wish AE still had a wingtip derby, but these are still super casual. I'd probably wear these with anything casual except linen. They'll be super cool in the fall, I think.
Surprise delivery by Fedex. Wasn't expecting these until Tuesday.

INDEPENDENCE LINING AND INSOLE

DOUBLE RENDENDBACH OUTSOLE AND HEEL
LIGHT BROWN TRANSPARENT EDGE DRESSING
MTO Strand Shell redo came in. Had to send my originals back do to the welt stitching inexplicably falling apart. They originally sent it back without wheeled edges. Kind of weird that they miss such big details like that. They did keep the independence lining though. Hopefully this doesn't induce shell strand overload since Mike recently posted some photos and these are just a remake.
These look great. Mine were supposed to look like this but AE did the wrong edge trim. Only plus side was I got to purchase them at 2nd's price for the error
Really liking the flat laces on those
WTF?!!? I feel like Allison picks and chooses what she wants to offer us. I was told the wheeled edges were to only go on Independence Collection models. This was 2.5 months ago and since placing my order, almost everyone's MTO has included wheeled edges.
Anyone have this same issue, seeing features on fellow member's shoes that they were denied?
