  I work for a world class Medical Center and am retired Navy. With patients from all around the world, as is many of the staff. This afternoon I was in a meeting with a gentleman that was wearing an old pair of burgundy Park Aves. I wore my new Brown Shell Leeds with natural welt, didn't really break them in "properly" but decided after an hour last night in the house it was enough as they fit well and I am going to wear down the toes no matter what I do for beak in....
  The current Webgem says order by 3/3 so I am hoping (with fingers crossed) that there is still hope. There has been a couple of times early on when Webgems started that they have had more than one major Webgem offer at the same time, especially when shell was involved. Would love to see several New Arrivals instead though. Several times the shell Webgems have sold out early due to demand. I was extremely lucky to get my walnut shell strands before they stopped taking...
Yes that would be correct. The #8 is a numbering system that Horween who supplies the shell uses. It is the most common color of shell in the reddish brown family. There is also #6, #4, and #2 in that color family but they are very rare. Especially #2.
Heard back from the AE rep and it will be several more days before we will know if they will bring back shoes from the dead for us. So not a lost cause yet, hopefully by the end of the week we will hear something and I will post as soon as I do know. Speaking of group buys got my brown shell Leeds with natural welt today. Only a quick brush so far need to give some love to them when I get some free time from work, which isn't easy right now:       Totally Agree!!! And...
I'm going in most part by what Nick Horween posted on AAAC which is very little and I have done a lot of research on it, that seems to be the only knowledge base I have found. And I would hope that you PLEASE DO post some pictures for a comparison! The Alden Ravello at first were a disappointment to me. They were almost a perfect match for my walnut chukkas which was not what I was expecting... However after just a short time in the real world with UV the red is really...
  I also own the C&J for RL Marlow shell but find the fit typical of most European shoes and my feet, less than satisfactory. However I do love that shell color also.   Nick Horween calls it dark cognac as did RL before they switched to the name Marlow and the name to dark brown. It is Horween shell #449. It is also the same color as AE brown cordovan, not dark brown, and recently added as an option on the Park Ave. Strand, Norwich and Patriot. It is also the same color...
I have a feeling that 10 people for this one will not be a problem so sent an email to find out if it is even possible. When I can get details will post them, starting with if it is even a possibility.     This is really good advice IMO and true for me too. Although I will wear walnut shell with grey because it is darker than calf walnut. I know not everyone wears suits and I wear suits a lot less each year, but it is something to keep in mind if you do.
I'd be willing to take it on this time. Think I was the only one that ended up with the group buy last time and they should be here on Wednesday. Supposed to have at least 10 people in on it, at least that is what the deal was last time but they still honored it for me. Not sure on a discontinued shoe if it is even possible however. Soho or Evanston in bourbon is that the general consensus and who is in? For real.
    That is because English Setters are everywhere, and the breeders want the hunting titles to stand out from the rest of the pack. Those are some great pictures especially the water retrieve by a Setter! Not something you see every day.  And very few MH titles for any breed at the end of the day truth be told.   The REAL question with English Setters however is… Llewellin or Ryman!! At least among those that actually hunt. In the early 80’s I went with a Ryman from...
Yes. And get a Dillon for pistol loading and never look back. Still use the old rock chucker purchased in the late 70's for rifle and Mec 9000's with an automate for shotgun.   Components can be hard to find from time to time especially primers so stock up when you can.
