Not sure if anyone on here has discussed it but I agree totally. Most of my shell is AE so my closet is VERY strong smelling of cordovan. Likely too much information but not long ago had a lady still in my bed when I was getting ready for work. I opened the doors to the closet and the smell filled the room as it always does, every morning it is a great smell to start the day with IMO. After about a minute she said wow your cologne is very seductive I think you should come back to bed and threw the covers back. I wasn't wearing any cologne, it was the AE shell she was smelling.

Best story ever!

Single lady = aroused
Wife = annoyed by smell & cost


Wife doesn't necessarily know the scent, at least mine doesn't. fing02[1].gif

That list was sent to me today by Kristle at the jeffersonville, OH store. She's been on the money for me. Good luck.

Noting in shell. Even walnut shell varies from batch to batch. I have had two different pair of walnut shell daltons and they were completely different shades. My first was was really light but the vamp tore away from the boot so AE replaced them and the replacement pair was much darker. If you like the color of walnut shell you'll have to settle for the calf version or try to find different manufactures. Alden in Whiskey - almost impossible to find but at least it exists. Carmina makes a saddle shell shoe that is readily available but expensive.

If anyone is a 11.5C, there's a pair of very lightly used Shell Cordovan MacNeil's on eBay. $149 OBO.

The heels may need to be pushed back into place, however, even the most incompetent cobbler can accomplish this task.

 

There is also another pair in 10.5C on eBay. $215 OBO.

Great find and thanks for the heads up... I have blown my shoe budget for the year unfortunately... I wish there were more posts like this... As long as they are size 11.5 or 12. smile.gif

Just when I thought my AE purchases were done for the year. Put me down for Portlands and Pine Rivers.

I've enjoyed this thread for some time, but this is my first time posting.  I have to thin the shoe herd a bit, so I just wanted to give a heads up that I put the shoes pictured (The Rutledge in 11.5D) up for auction.  http://www.ebay.com/itm/151104386464?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

Wife comes through the garage door. Even when she can't park our car there due to some boxes and stuff we need to move. The other day I got home about 9 b/c I was working late. She didn't even see the AE box left behind by the fedex guy smile.gif .

what about cappuccino shell with natural welt sole. The cappuccino seems lighter than the dark brown shell. What are your thoughts on this combination?

Just received my second MTO. I wanted a dress casual boot and selected an older style called the Taunton. I like the simplicity and versatility of the plain toe. The bourbon color is especially attractive with every shade of brown I have ranging from the lighter tans all the way to the darker browns. Some forumites may not like the chelsea boot style, but they really appeal to me. Any comments on these?
