1. A stunning pair of wingtips made by Alden for Brooks Brothers in Number 8 Shell Cordovan. I believe these are on the desirable plaza last. As you can see the shoes are new. The uppers have a few very minor nicks from shipping, nothing you wouldn't see on a display model. The only real imperfection is a bit of plastic that has rubbed off one of the metal eyelets. This is almost unnoticeable but I thought it was worth mentioning. You can see it in the closeup shot of the laces. These are marked 9.5D. No box or bags. Asking $340 $305 shipped CONUS SOLD. Measurements Length: 12 1/4" Width: 4 3/8" 2. Another beautiful pair of penny loafers from Crockett and Jones for Ralph Lauren. These are the popular Dalton model in gorgeous cigar shell cordovan with sturdy double leather soles. You can often spot Vox sporting this model in the WAYWRN thread. These are used but in excellent condition with minimal creasing to the uppers. The depth of the shell C&J uses to make their Polo line is really amazing, you can clearly see it in the 3rd picture. These are marked 10D. Asking SOLD. Measurements Length: 12 1/8" Width: 4 1/4" 3. Finally a lovely pair of wingtips by Allen Edmonds. This is the classic Cambridge model in burgundy shell cordovan. This model features 6 eyelets and double leather soles. This pair is used but in very nice condition. The only thing to note is the variation in color between the shoes. This variation is prevalent in most shell shoes but I think its a little more prevalent than usual with this pair. The right shoe is a dark burgundy where the right has more red. I think the pictures do a good job of illustrating this and it is reflected in the price. These are marked 10D. Asking SOLD. Measurements Length: 12 1/2" Width: 4 3/8"
