Anyone know of anywhere that I can see photos of the Need Supply Belmont LWBs excluding those on their website?

Man I guess I have no idea what shell cordovan is then, but I'm not an AldenLuver so maybe I'm a bit behind. fo real tho (Click to show)
Are you actually serious? I don't want to derail threads for pointless bs but this is rotflmao.gif The shoes you posted are made by C&J. Older BBBF longwings are in shell, here is a photo of the sole I took before wearing:

But since I probably fake photos as well my bad, for further reference:

My bad.  My intent wasn't malicious.  I didn't mean to accuse you of faking pics. I thought they looked like shell. I just remembered seeing a calf LWB on line.  Beautiful shoe... cheers.

Dayum. Stevent goes for the throat.

post #29393 of 122416
Didn't mean to sound as mean as I typed it but honestly why would they not be shell given the context of the post (s). BBBF also has the long wing in black alpine grain, tan/whisky calf alpine grain, suede versions, two tone versions, that weren't really online that much

Nice BBBFs. No question those are cordovan Aldens.
Those calf ones linked to are Grenson though. C&J soles have 3 nails above the dovetail thingie.

Yeah some people were saying AS as well, but in store the sole is a bit different I think (only did a quick glance) but the inner markings looking a lot like C&J ones in my Marlows

edit: I think SF SA said it was C&J as well but not fully sure
edit 2: also BB site is pretty bad, remember those lightweight shoes?

The BBBF shell longwings are by Alden on the Grant last. I think my pair is from one of the 2007 seasons. I think they were originally $800 but I got them on sale for $400. Others got them at $340 (an extra 15% off).

I bought a different pair of English made BBBF LWBs a while ago. I had to compare the soles side by side with some C&Js and Grensons to tell.
The main diff is the 3 nails above the dovetail on the heel. If you compare the heels side by side, the dovetail thingie is a different shape between C&J and Grenson too.
Yes, this is the nerdy kind of thing I do.

It does seem like there's one person in England who writes all of the inner markings on Tricker's, C&J, and Grenson shoes.

Thanks for the info. Only had one pair of Grensons before and they felt super cheap (Tom's I think the model was?). The build quality seemed better on the lwbs. How's the quality on your pair?

Also is grenson just one line as well on the inside? Tricker's handwriting is similar but they have a few lines right?
