Shell is great with jeans and khakis. Cigar or #8 go with pretty much anything- they're probably the most versatile colors. If I had to choose only one, I'd go with #8, because it can be worn with jeans, or almost any color trousers.
My thoughts exactly. This is why I made the shell Indy in #8 my most recent purchase .... currently drooling because UPS should be delivering them before I get home from work today
I plan on wearing them to work and on the weekends. Mine come with the double oak leather sole, so I have to wait a week while my cobbler throws on a Vibram topy
The shell Indys should be a good pair with the raw KMWs I snatched up yesterday on sale, here's me wearing them with my current pair of 403s:
Oh no...no...that's not good at all. That's what Horween calls "lateral canthal wrinkles". That's the breaking down of elastin in the shell cordovan. Those shoes are now garbage. Ship them to me and I'll dispose of them for you.
Alden DC service is great - they shipped my captoes overnight, included extra laces and brown paste wax
Grant is a fine last but I need an E in them, which basically makes them look the same as barrie. Aberdeen in E fits me the best at this point, and it looks relatively sleek even in E
