That's a sexy shoe. The depth of color looks like the Alden of old, not the opaque shell we've seen lately.
I actually asked Ed at TSM that exact question almost verbatum, and didnt get a real answer...
He basically said "There weren't that many..."
I also wondered if they were new old stock (seconds).
My God, you guys have seriously brought it today with the King LWBs, the absoluely gorgeous ravello NST, king cap toe boots, etc... there is some serious game possessed by this thread, esp when you throw in the watch collections!
Today I went with what has become one of my favorite go-to casual shoes, Snuff LWBs + J Crew argyles. (However, I am itching to wear some shell this weekend... this thread is inspiring!)
