post #57421 of 70737

Was digging through old photos and ran across the time I tried on a McTavish at Nordstrom. I can't remember for the life of me what is on my right foot! This was April 2013.

 

 

 

Maybe an Aberdeen? Can't see the sole and I just don't remember. Kind of wish I had bought them and not the McT's that I later returned.

If you go green then I would double down on my chocolate recommendation (assuming shell is out of the budget). Depending on the shade of green, pairing it with oxblood may add a splash of Christmas to the look that you probably don't want in a June wedding. Do a Google image search on the chocolates to find some pics out in the wild. I think you'll like what you see.

^This. He didn't know what the actual percentage off would be, so offered to adjust once the discounts were determined. I've never seen Shell Strands in my size on the Bank, so I was on it regardless of the offer made...  Sorry, April sale is what was referenced. The Shoe Mart info is useful... thanks so much!

Little confused here - when you're referring to percentage off of shell, you are talking about the upcoming April sale, right?  I just got the retail store's sale flyer so I am assuming that whatever is part of the sale in the retail store will be discounted on the bank also - there was nothing about shell that I saw.  On the positive side, I thought the sale prices were decent.  On the negative side, there wasn't a lot included.

Yes, @Neo1 the upcoming April sale, and 15% off is what was mentioned as the possible discount, adjusted as necessary.

 

 

Happy Walnut Wednesday everyone!

I also had  2 pairs of Macneils in 8.5D that I sold off as well.

Brannock size is just over an 8 for me.










Ugh was hoping that my 10.5C in the 5 last would equate to an 11D in the 7 + insole. Oh well.

Did somebody say burgundy shell Daltons...?

I wore these last week in the rain and they got all gritty. This is after five minutes of loving with a damp towel, some VSC, a brush, and a flannel polishing cloth. They still need a bit of edge dressing. Goddamn I love shell cordovan:

Figured I'd throw mine up here since we're talking burgundy shell Daltons today. Surprise rain shower when I was out at lunch, so they got a little spotted. Shown here with Epaulet Prince of Wales Walts I recently picked up from another forum member.

Same for me today, except on the office carpet. Not sure were you are, but the subways here in NYC are filthy. Yours look quite well kept. 

 

 

Probably get the best glow on these out of all my AE shells.

I think that's Aberdeen based on exposed eyelets, blucher lacing and rough leather. Looks like split welt as well just like Aberdeen but not really sure without the sole as you said.

Yeah I read subways, then I looked at the picture, then thought, not in NYC.

DC.  I must have gotten on a good train car, lol. Our cars are carpeted, which is good, except you can't remove chewing gum from carpet. Edit: we are starting to get some new cars that have that MTA-stye linoleum floors!

Ah. I'm going to DC this weekend. I'll try to get a shot on one of the subway cars then :fistbump:

I've been out of the SF game for a good bit, but took some time with my bottle of Saphir and a few pairs AEs last night. I realized that most of my AEs are of the dark brown brogue persuasion and that I should really get some plaintoes in different colors soon. Does anybody have the details for the upcoming April sale (I apologize if it has been posted already, I've been out of the loop for a while!). Also, how does the new 201 last compare to the 5 last?

Walnut Wednesday with the (new to me) walnut shell Dalton's
