This Leeds talk makes this post a little more relevant. Less than a month after my initial foray into shell, my second just arrived from eBay.
I couldn't be happier with them. They look great and fit even better. And to top it off, they're a fairly significant pair: my 20th AE.
(Followed about an hour afterwards by my 21st, when UPS dropped off a Dark Chili Fifth Avenue )
Very nice. I wish they still offered the Leeds in chili or some kind of brown. My 1.0 has served me well.
