I think so. Except the Brecon is on a better last IMO. 341 vs 325/335? And you could even order them in size 13! smile.gif

+1  I understand your burgundy thoughts.  Okay maybe another dark brown.

Just that I took a bath on them when I sold them!

They were OK. I was unhappy with AE's shell. I have all Alden shell and I have gotten rather used to the quality of their finishing. I went on an AE MTO binge when they were offering their cappuccino color. I was disappointed with all of them.

Hmmm... Is this an issue with all AE shell or just the Capp? Was looking at the dark brown and hoping it would resemble C&J's... Does anyone here know and care to comment?

A lot of people own both AE and Alden shell and are very happy owning both. I have one other pair of AE shell which were my first pair of shell. They are better than the Capp shell, but not as nice as my Aldens.

Firstly you should love the whiskey if the aged sample I saw the other day is anything to go by.

Secondly a couple of you (hoit & tifosi) asked about 335 sizing. I just got fitted for a pair of Skye 2 and I took a whole size down from my shell indy size ... So tifosi if we are going to continue this awkward shoe twin thing you would probably be a 7E. For reference a 7.5E Harlech (341) is a pretty good fit and a 7.5E Conniston (325) is a great fit -
I fitted a 7.5F (wide) in the Connaught dress captoe oxford..... & a Alden Barrie LWB 8D .....So as someone else suggested; the 335 is roomy.

Hope this helps.

Ps. Perhaps it is worth mentioning that the Calf Skye in 7E felt a little tight over the instep, to the point that I would perhaps be nervous if it would stretch enough. The cordovan however was not problematic in this area.

Thanks for the info dusttruffle. I think the 7E would be spot on in the Skye2. I have another shoe twin on this thread and he also recommended the same size for me. I also plan to get the Harlech in a 7.5E. Can't wait till next year!

I'm still interested in a whiskey Cheviot, but would like to see how the shade of whiskey shell turns out on the Harlech first. I'm in the camp that prefers the darker end of the whiskey spectrum.

 

For dark brown shell would anyone consider a Plain Toe Blucher? I've wanted to get a Marlow PTB in dark brown shell, but it doesn't appear to be a model RL stocks any longer.

^^ I may be interested in that. Also waiting to see how these whiskey turn out, but even at that we don't know how available it will be from here on out (whiskey).

I would be interested in a dark brown Cheviot as well.

I always thought the plain toe was something which was always available, you had to call into (or visit) a RL store to order it though as it wasn't ever on the website? I don't think C&J whiskey will be available for a while to be honest as I suspect they will have a hard time sourcing such a light color from Horween. Personally, I think a dark brown longwing (Cheviot) would be superb, especially given that Alden's current cigar is almost black, and finding anything ravello is rarer than seeing a 4 legged leprechaun riding the Loch Ness monster.

+10000 Let's go for a dark brown Cheviot!

Yeah, I think a dark brown Cheviot, storm welt, double leather, with light antique edge would be badass.
