Any suggestions would be humbly received!

Anyone...? Anyone...? (Beuller...?)

Figured it out...

Do you have the Kenilworth in Bourbon or Brown Burnished Calf? It looks to me like the burnished might be too dark almost black but I can't tell if the Bourbon is too much like the walnut strands I already have. I want a pair dark enough to wear with a navy suit but not too dark

All this talk of Dundee shell is really making me itch for some... anyone have pics of wearing the Dundee's (more than just the downward angle shot)? @halfnhalfnhalf
 I'm sure you have some pics somewhere around there..

Going to wear mine tomorrow. Will post pics tomorrow PM if no one has them available.

I'll let Mike carry the ball for the time being . . . but I'd like to see your new grey Long Branches when you have a moment!

I have the brown burnished calf, orginally I had the walnut but on the advice of someone on this thread they said get the brown because it's more versatile. I listened. It's def not close to black, as I'm wearing them as we speak.

I would google the kenilworth and judge from the pics. It's a plain but not boring shoe.

Ordered the tan suede amok and Elgin last night and they were shipped this morning. Can't believe I managed to get these firsts at this price. I also can't believe I'm now on my 10th and 11th pair given I only had 1 pair this time last year. The last 10 pairs after I've found this thread in SF. You guys are true enablers.

Whats everyones opinion on the banchory? The tan ones look nice to me, however I've never seen the person. They dont seem to popular in this thread.

Speaking of enablers...my first pair of PTBs came in yesterday. I did them right and got them in shell from the recent seconds sale. They are flawless from what I can tell, just looked like they were tried on once. No seconds stamp on the sole either. 

 

Before wearing them with poor lighting on my phone camera

 

 

Inaugural journey! (New pants need to be hemmed...can't decide cuffed or not cuffed)

 

 

Also: I'm sending back my brown shell Norwiches this weekend unless someone here wants them. I can send them at total cost. I posted a little while back with pictures. They are a size 9D and not sure if there is inventory.

There were a few posts in the last couple of pages recommending the Kenilworth. Out of curiosity, why is the Kenilworth recommended more frequently than the Flatiron? I would have thought the medallion on the Flatiron would make it more appealing... then again, what do I know?
