DAMN! That photo makes me so thankful that I ordered the shell Townley! That is a thing of beauty! They look as though they've never been worn.
If anyone is interested in this makeup let me know - will reside in the MTO thread..
Ok for the Brown Shell Dundee
This is the model I am looking to replicate
So far initial interest but not considered confirmed
Unboxed my Shoebank RDA scores! I'll put up some post-polish pics after I have some time to give them a good work-over.
Brown Shell Norwich, very surprised at how light this shade of brown is. Much lighter than my Brown Shell Jeffersons. Love it.
Burgundy Shell Macneil. I can already tell that this shoe is going to get a lot of use. It's just about the perfect addition to my Burgundy Leeds for business-casual work settings.
Black Calf Strands. This is replacing a worn-out pair of Johnston & Murphy to become my one-and-only black shoe (worn once per week, max).
I'm not extremely happy with the finishing on the Macneil. They look dead compared to my Leeds that I stripped down a few months ago (photo below, this was taken without a recent polish and fresh off a long-haul flight from Singapore). I'll be breaking out the Renovateur and removing the factory finish as soon as I get a spare minute. Going to try some VSC that I just got instead of the Reno that I have been using.
Four pairs of shell Shoebank seconds since May...I'm done for a while.
I am on the ballot this fall. :) Running unopposed... No doubt because the other side fears my shiny shoes... :)
Regarding the shine; I had the same success on most of my shells. I would say my brown Jeffersons are a little duller but the more I work on them, the more I get there with them.
* There was a flash on in the pic I posted.
That is a great score! I'd pay a premium for that shade in several makeups. That looks medium brown or cappuccino(?)
Shoebank is a great way to build up closet coverage and to evaluate your preferences. Congrats on your additions...but especially the lighter shell!
Last November, I bought my first new pair of AE shoes, based on a used pair I had picked up on ebay.
The $35 recraft card from recrafting those shoes ate a hole in my pocket.
The slippery slope hit me hard because my size had always been impossible to shop for.
I work in very different industries, so dress is
Since I am often unexpectedly required to walk properties, my boot preference is apparent.
Current list, in closet or coming soon:
