    upload it to a host like flickr or imgur, then use the [ img] [ /img] tags (without spaces).

    Do you like the McTavishs?

    Ok--I cannot post pics but here is the rundown:

    The cxl leather in natural is beautful. I have AEs in Merlot, Brown, Walnut and Natural and I think the natty is the prettiest (although that just may be because it is my most recent purchase). Much lighter than Walnut.
    The color looked great with blue jeans, navy, and especially olive. A little less so with khaki/tan but still pretty good.
    The shoe is quite casual. Personally, I would not wear Strands with jeans (although I know many people do); this definitely has a casual vibe.
    The shoe definitely looks better that what you see on the AE website.

    PROS: Looks great, seems very well built, cxl is pretty tough leather, easy to care for (don't have to polish cxl leather!), comfy, pretty versatile
    CONS: Runs big--would go down 1/2 size; cxl gets dinged up pretty easy--if you like patina and character a great shoe--if you like your shoes to look new for as long as possible, might not be the shoe for you; if you don't like the look of the clear lug on the website pics I don't think you're gonna fall in love with it in person.

    Hope this helps.

    This is great, thanks. Would you say that this picture captures it well? https://www.reddit.com/r/allenedmond...sh_in_natural/

    Yes, very well. My pair looks even a little lighter, but will probably darken over time.

    Thanks. I ordered a pair last night, figured worst case I can return them.

    I'm a fan. Like them a lot more than I thought I would based on the pics. I do need to find a more appropriate belt for that leather color than the ones I currently own
