The Shell Cordovan, non-Alden Shoe and Boot Thread - Page 144

post #2146 of 3058

I want to buy some cordovan boots (or maybe shoes) from Carmina.

 

Any recommendations?

These are a great example of American Shoemaking and in a ultra rare shade of cordovan to boot, or shoe in this instance:

shell

 

and reverse shell

that doesnt look like shell, more likely corrected grain. seller means cordovan as in 'cordovan' color I think

thanks, very interesting aesthetic, and nice finishing. Is that a design house or they make their own boots?

I am considering these wingtips from Enzo:









Being an oxford, and having such a chiseled last, does this shoe require a suit? I don't usually wear suits (and when I do I usually need to wear black shoes), so I'm wondering if I can wear these simply with dress slacks and dress shirt, sometimes with a tie, sometimes with a blazer...

Any guidance would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I think they're best suited for business casual (slacks/chinos, ocbd and a sportcoat/blazer of some sort)

All the brogueing lowers its formality (and some would say the shoe being in shell does that too).

Pretty versatile shoe I think.

My first pair non-Alden pair of shells really worth posting here.

Needles Horween #8 Engineer Boots from Nepenthes. Brand new pickup, still some pairs left in 8 and 10 UK (run very big even for UK sizing)

Thanks!  What's OCBD?  Also, I agree that the brouging lowers its formality, but what about the chiseled last?  Does that matter?
