Looks real (or at least its a hand-sewn fake). But the flaw on the front pocket makes it worth little. Even an expert re-weaver would not be able to make that totally disappear. Its probably an orphan piece.

Sounds like leaving out in the sun is the way to go. Thanks for the tips. Any other advice is welcome. Thanks.
I know there have been a lot of threads about Shell Cordovan, but I don't think my question has been specifically addressed. Here is the issue. I just bought a pair of New Alden Shell bluchers. They are new condition, but they are slightly different shades. That is, although both shoes are #8, the right shoe is slightly lighter in color than the left shoe. I am not sure how noticeable it is (I don't have them in hand yet), but I wanted to get some input now on the...
