So this is NOT my experience on #8, my shoes were dyed including of course the stitching, bummer. Whiskey Recraft guys? What's up? So do they ruin the contrast hand stitched vamp on LHS, NST, and others Whiskey, Ravello, Cigar. Who actually have sent a Rare Shell Cordovan back for Recraft and your experience? Thanks ...

Mac, those Color 8 NSTs are looking absolutely superb. They have an amazing shade to them. They go well with your argyles.

Sub, you are looking good. I will admit that that is not my favorite style, but we all have different taste profiles. I am glad that you are enjoying them and they are comfortable.

This is a beautiful model and you are fortunate to have them as they are likely no longer going to be made. They have a nice character and patina to them. I would vote brush them vigorously to get them cleaned up some and add moisture to the creasing and enjoy them for the time being and then send them back for a restore.

I've experimented with different products over the years in an attempt to get some contrast on the cap toe. I don't want to rush it and they are slowly getting there. These are LS Ultimate Jumpers, brown CXL on double water lock.

Most recent pic on top from a few weeks ago. After conditioning with Bick 4, Ive been adding a bit of dark brown wax on the toe. It's subtle but I like it.

The rest are from the last year or so.

Prof, looking great in your BB #8 Tassels. They are looking very good and you look very comfortable today.

Maybe you need to get some tassels with foxing, Mike. Maybe the BB Tassel will go the way of the short wing and not be made special for them (Hope not!)? Go for it!

Thanks!

I looked for a long time and contacted various BB stores looking for either a #8 or Black Shell version in size 11B, but was unable to find any. Nothing ever popped up on eBay either. The BB store would not put me on a list to make them when I requested as well. After about a a year of looking with different levels of enthusiasm, I gave up... :-)

Anybody else at all have recrafting experience via Alden on rare colors? Come on anyone? Good or bad experience? Color variations? Stitching color variation?
