So you got them? Great! Did you end up going TTS? Will look forward to photos.

And on the topic of @LA Guy's suggestion of a special SF makeup from Rancourt, what about asking Rancourt to do something in marbled black shell cordovan? I gather this actually something of an irregular item from Horween, but Phil from Ashland Leather (who seems to possibly also work at Horween...) suggested at one point that it could be available if there was a demand for it. Maybe SF x Rancourt x Ashland marbled black shell... I don't know... something handsewn?

Just a thought.

I'll listen to the crickets chirp now.

Yes, I have finally gone true to size. I have also bought some post overalls clothing. Gentry sales are really nice and they have a lot of sizes. I hope I did not pay much on custom taxes when arrive to my country

I would be in immediately for a marbled shell makeup. Ashland just did some recently in a variety of different colors. Are you thinking loafer, ranger moc or boot? I was thinking a marbled beefroll loafer could be cool. Maybe on crepe or RLH. Would love to not buy another boot for a minute...

I wasn't aware that Phil did marbled shell in different colors. I guess no reason why not. I'd assumed he did black because it was likely the easiest to get.

Anyway I'd do a loafer. Probably that over a ranger-moc. And I'm ok skipping boots.

Crepe/RLH sounds good too.

Glad to hear you are enthusiastic.

I own way too many Ashland shell wallets already but check out some of the recent marbled ones; the brown in particular has some great variation and shading

OMG.

OK. So one of each then...

Honestly, if there's any traction at all for marbled shell beyond the two of us, I'd think that this is the kind of direction that would make for a very interesting SF/Rancourt collaboration.

Heck, I wonder if just the two of us could get Phil to sell Kyle enough of the hides to make us each a pair of shoes. Let's keep that one in the hopper for now...

I'd I may my two cents here, if you're thinking marbled shell loafer, wouldn't the venetian loafer be the best showcase for that unique leather? Sort of the same way a wholecut is the purest expression for an oxford with a distinctive leather?

post #3774 of 5174
Sure, I can see what you are saying. A venetian would look great in any of these.
post #3775 of 5174
I would totally go in for a brown marbled venetian. That would be amazing.

Waiting for the flight to LV:

Anyone have pics of #8 shell wingtips? Preferably on a montello mini-lug or tempest sole?

Calikid has posted pics of that makeup in green shell. Don't believe we have seen #8 yet

Just ordered a pair of penny loafers in Navy CXL with contrast thread and RLH soles. Pretty excited to see how they turn out.

From horween.bigcartel.com

Snagged it 9 minutes after post (there are shell wallets and belts available too).

I'm normally a 9.5EE on the 114 last as a fairly snug fit. I'm hoping that 10.5E ends up working as a reasonable fit, but either way deal of the century right there on green shell.
