They appear to be reverse welted--i.e., having a "storm welt" (C&J) or "fudge welt" (EG). I've seen this occasionally simulated (without any welt), but here it appears to be the real thing. Who is the maker (I can't make out the label)? That would probably give us the answer.
Zegnamtl, another phenomenal photo essay! Many thanks. One question and one observation. Where is the factory located?...and...I found it interesting to see the way that they seem to have joined the pieces of the shell cordovan belt--with the little piece of trim. It's nigh on impossible to make a belt of regular length from a single piece of shell cordovan, and two pieces (usually; but it could be more) have to be joined. On my Brooks Bros. shell cordovan belt, the...

After selling off one pair of shoes recently, let me keep going with two pairs I had up for sale on this forum more than a year ago. Unfortunately, I can't find a way to bump my earlier thread (from more than a year ago) to provide new, lower prices. Therefore, let me give the link to that earlier thread and give you the new prices here: Shell Cordovan Onslows, 9.5D: $300; Shell Cordovan Alden LHS Loafers, 9.5B: $150. http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...85&postcount=1
More than a year later...but since I've just sold off one pair of shoes, let me keep going and bump this thread to make further price reductions. Now: $300 for the shell cordovan Onslows and $150 for the shell Alden LHS loafers. For some reason, I can't edit my original post with prices.
SOLD!! Thanks everybody.
SOLD!! RLPL Carter - by EG, in Dark Oak. Purchased close to a year ago, but worn no more than 5-6 times. Unlike most EG lasts, the 89 is just not a good fit for my feet. I understand that this model will no longer be available via RLPL, which means that the EG Ecton is now the only alternative (same shoe). Will include Woodlore cedar shoe trees. $350US shipped U.S. or Canada. Will ship internationally, but will need to determine postal costs. Photos below taken...

If it's 6.25" or larger, a 41 mm. diameter case would probably work OK. These days 41 mm. is not considered big; we see 45 mm. and up in many watches. The current fashion in this regard seems to be bigger, and big watch faces on men's wrists are...

Instead of a gear train that winds a mainspring though, it uses a sub-miniature coil and...
