Any pics would be awesome, but general thoughts are appreciated too

 

I know @RogerP may be able to help you out regarding navy shell.

Navy shell ages and breaks in like any other shell - if you look after it, it looks pretty sweet.  Well worn Carminas below.

The shade of these is far closer to Alden Ravello than Whiskey.  This is perhaps one of the finest shades of shell cordovan I have handled.

Congrats, Watchoski! How is the fit?
