And right now they will only do the listed styles. Now got to rethink my game plan.

Too bad they won't do a Dalton

Oh my, a natty shell Leeds and Dundee would fit into my collection perfectly.

Date and times for NYC:

 

Thursday 11/20: Noon to 2:00 New York 44th Street

                         Madison Avenue 4:00 to 7:00 pm.

 

From what I understand, Paul and Skip are going to be present at the NYC shows, hence the same-day, consecutive times.

Jesus Christ, I just wanted my money on some stupid Alfred Sargent!

Green or navy shell leeds would be uhhhmazing. I just interviewed for a new job and if I get it.... I may have to destroy my wallet

Would you guys recommend unlined or lined shell cordovan boots and lace up shoes? I wear mine mostly with medium-thick socks (Canadian winter).

 

Do split toe shoe trees stretch/damage the fit of shell? I have a pair of split toe extra and I don't know if I should get the solid toe instead.

If you read my subsequent posts, you will see I got some rudder guidance. They will only be doing the original 6 designs.

On November 10, we will host a Cordovan "trunk show". Paul Grangaard and Skip Horween will be attending the event from 5 pm to 8 pm to answer any questions you may have. As a part of the event, Skip is offering some limited colors in shell, including Navy, Green, Deep dark brown and Natural brown, in addition to our usual brown, burgundy and black. These limited colors will be available on a first come first serve basis in the following styles: Leeds, Macneil, Dundee, Strand, Park Ave and Strand. THERE WILL BE NO CUSTOM FEE FOR CORDOVAN THIS NIGHT. If you have dreamed about a navy shell chukka like I have, now is your chance.
You guys can email me directly with questions at rstowe@allenedmonds.com
I hope to see some of you at the event. If you can't make it, we are glad to take orders via phone or email.
Best,
Ryan

 

This is brilliant. I really wish I was in the States for this occasion. Alas, I am out of the continent and on budget constraints. I would love the MacNeil in navy shell... However, what does the natural brown and 'deep dark brown' look like?

We are hoping to find out soon on colors... I am hoping it is the standard Natural Shell Color though! Start saving some change and drop any coffee habits or whatever to get some loose change!

If that really is the case then I'm in for a natural shell Leeds or Strand...

I was planning a long Christmas vacation as I still have 9 vacation leaves unused for my 2014 quota. With this shell trunk shoe though, I'll just sell them back to the company. I'll be laughing hohohohoh in the office wearing my navy and natty shells!

About that...
After a few emails yesterday, I received a response from our VP of production today. Here's the scoop:

The original six styles I posted will be available with no upcharge, guaranteed shipped by 12/22.
You may have any other welt in the current active lineup made (the EC would be ordered as a First Ave) but the $125 fee will be added and the 12/22 ship date may not apply. Hope this helps some of you guys make your decisions!
