Speaking of walnut shell Daltons.

PSA, Pelle line has some stock. It's labeled as dark brown shell cordovan but the pair I received and returned were walnut shell on the box.

Yay accounting! Although he really meant "brand loyalty, word of mouth promotion, etc., which is what the non-accountant almost always means when using the word goodwill. (I know you know that, but I just wanted to say it "out loud")

I know it's just a shot of the shoe, but can anyone concur with my thought that these wouldn't pair well with denim? I have to be able to wear all my bluchers with jeans.

I think they pair absolutely fine with jeans (preferably a dark wash). They are a bit on the more formal side but still totally work. You could add something like an antique brass eyelets to make them slightly more casual but then they would not work quite as well in a formal setting. 

 

I wear shell PTB's all time with jeans...

I don't know if it was the color or what? I did have a more blue denim on when I put them next to it. Maybe I should try something darker. Maybe I should have gone lighter with the edge trim as well... These won't get anymore formal than a pair of khakis for work, but if I don't end up liking them with jeans I will sell them. I haven't put them on yet and I'd rather not till I make my mind up.

With all the discussion around park avenue hating, Here is a pair of park avenues I have for sale that I hand polished.

It would never have occurred to me to question whether those go with jeans.

Does that mean that you think they 100% do...?

I certainly don't consider "exotic" leather shoes for my wardrobe, but I can appreciate those AE's for their rarity.  Those were quite expensive as well.  They made some in genuine Alligator a little over a year ago as a Webgem, and if memory serves they were in the price range of a pair of John Lobbs, though I don't remember the exact price.

 

EDIT: Just found them... They were $2,400. :uhoh:

Yes, I think so.
