Yes. Well, I had an order in for a color 4 boot, but there was an issue with the supplier and they ended up not being able to get any color 4, so I've switched to mahogany and am just looking for some pictures in the wild.

Haha that's true. To the untrained eye, everything from brandy to dark cognac is the same.

Great boots and great dog. Have had a few Pyrenees mixes -- loyal, smart, gentle, chilled out.

I am considering my first pair of shell cordovan shoes.  I already have plenty of pairs of boots, so I've narrowed it down to loafers, longwings, and plain toe bluchers.  Which ones do you find to me the most versatile?  Which style has the most added utility compared to a calf version of the same style?

For shoes you hit the shell trifecta. IMO PTBs are most versatile of the three.

Here are the norvegese welted meermins that I mentioned the other day that I am wearing today. The creases fill with bloom/pullup constantly.
