Well done Zippy, great collection.

Zippyh that is a great Alden collection! I'm really loving the Whiskey Indy boot, the Ravello NST boot and of course the #4 4x4's. Makes me want to wear my #4's right now.

General question-
I just got a pair of LHS in Shell Color #8
Since one foot is longer than the other, I went down a 1/2 size. Problem is that the big toe on my larger foot is touching the front of the shoe. The other (smaller) foot fits great. Should I expect these to stretch a touch as they break in, or should I go the the cobbler and have him stretch the tight shoe?? Thanks for all the great info here and for some ideas!

Shell doesn't stretch.

Just a FYI, Shoemart got their natural chromoexel Indy Oxfords in. I grabbed a pair earlier this morning.

Very nice zippy! Question, ID on the left pair? Look like some kind of shortwing/longwing combo that I've never seen before. What last/leather are they, and where'd you snag them? Look v interesting. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Thanks zippy! Seeing that shoe on the Aberdeen next to your Barrie longwings (I assume those are Barrie) makes me re-realize how inelegant the Barrie can be. Functional and comfortable, for sure, but still... Have been looking for shell longwings on the Aberdeen or Leydon for a while now and it seems impossible.

Zippy - As Vox used to say "Jeebus!" As a golfing buddy of mine says "Holy Shitania." Great family portraits. Thanks for sharing.

Yeah, those other ones are also from LS.

Not a longwing, but Alden of Carmel has some Leydon wingtips in #8.

Aries, those #8s actually look like cigar shell to me. Interesting the different looks, based on wear and lighting.

Firstly, I only just saw zippy's post on the previous page, sweet tapdancing mother of Christ! Sazon - Yes, in sunlight they definitely take on the patina between #8 and cigar, it's fascinating to look at. In artificial light, they look like a lighter hue of #8 (with marbling).
