OK weasels - assuming the trunk show rumors are true, and that natural shell is an included option, I may have a decision to make. I was leaning toward a Navy Carlyle (see awesomeness in previous post), but natural shell is tempting as well. The issue is that I don't have a ready-made target for it. The strand in @polojock615 's photo above is awesome but would be fairly redundant to my walnut strand (I could sell the latter, I suppose). The Dundee is a *natural* fit (see above or @peppercorn78's iconic photos), but chukkas are not for me. That leaves the field open . . I could see something like a First Avenue, but I may not get as much mileage out of a boot. What I'm thinking a bit about is a natural shell Mora - it's casual enough to pair with jeans, is clean enough to show off the natty shell, and is on a last that fits me well. Has anyone done this? How did it turn out? Any other thoughts? Thanks all!
I'm thinking natty Mora or St. Johns myself.
