    Thank You! No wax or polish since I got them last summer. They are the "new" finish and arrived loaded with cream. Could hardly see the burnishing that was under the cream so spent 4 or 5 evenings when new Reno and brushing them till they were clean:   Since then just the Mac method.
Aye, there is no hope once you start down that slippery slope that is shell. The 3 choices that you are considering I have all 3 of them in walnut shell. My personal goal is to acquire a boot, chukka, and shoe all in each color of shell offered by AE. Be careful what you wish for!
For my foot yes, the 1 and 5 last are TTS for me in shell and calf. For the Dublin leather in the rough collection I need to size down a half size just like the Alden Barrie last. But others have had to do different combinations for proper fitment between the 1 and 5 last.
  Hopefully Sazon will still post pictures when he gets a chance too. There are always color variations in the materials and of course lighting effect. Here is an older picture I have comparing them.   Walnut calf to the far left, other 2 are walnut shell.
But of course. However I blame sevenfoldtieguy. His collection of shell has to be the Pope & Young museum equivalent for horses... Oh my goodness, I AM normal!! Yes I think of many purchases in the terms of shell purchases including checks to the IRS, etc. Whew I was starting to get worried there for awhile! When I got home tonight the over sized hammock that the girlfriend wanted was sitting outside the garage, going to take me half a day to put that beast up in the...
I agree with this. I am wearing the Marlow today.   It is the only C&J I own, likely will not get another. Have a couple pairs of Alden shell also. But have XX pairs of AE and feel they are as good as any of the others in the price range you are looking at.
I hear you. I just ordered my second shoe\boot in cappuccino shell in a weeks time so I am trying to help level the playing field between walnut and truffle availability    Got an email today from the Jeffersonville Ohio Outlet about the next uncoming sale. You should be able to click on the images to read them in larger size.    
    That is some beautiful shell porn!
Guess I whined more than once on here about not being able to pick up the Cappuccino shell McAllister’s when they were offered. Several people sent me PM’s soon after Paul made his offer that I might be able to now get them. I did, ordered them a week ago last Friday, thank you!   My goal for shell is a boot, chukka and wingtip shoe (except for black, went with PA) in each color of shell available. When I called Friday before last to place the order I also went to...
That was my first thought too!   MacktasticGDogg nice job. I have had the same thought collecting a number of shell samples over the last year from AE. But I also want the natural shell and like the job that Dave Mitchell did on my shell wallet. So when the bleeding is over with shoes will contact him and see if he would make up 2 straps from leather supplied by me (samples) in addition to the natural shell that he...
