You're not serious, right? There are so many interesting leathers besides shell

100 % serious. I'm not into exotics or skinny European lasted shoes. I also think its just plain ridiculous to suggest calf is more formal.

Does anyone know how a Barrie lasted 13AA would fit? Would it work for a 12.5D? Sorry if this is a ridiculous question.

Interesting that you say it's plain ridiculous, considering that's not that unusual of a suggestion.
 

I was speaking merely in terms of merit. In my opinion, no one leather is better than any other. I have a pair of roughout natural calf boots and I can't imagine wanting them to be in shell

Oh right, I forgot. Carry on. And to think people were thinking it was boring in here.

Thanks for all the feedback. The sidewalks are pretty clean...could have worn some leather soled shoes; oh well, played it safe. Hotel is 1 block from Haberdash. I'm off to a good start.

Those Ravello Full-Straps are the pinnacle of the Ravello color. They look absolutely gorgeous.

I considered the Alden 9016 very seriously and own the Color 8 version (9015), but I decided that I wanted a different shape to the last.

agree.  I told myself that I would stop reading, but I clearly haven't. There aren't many models that interest me that I don't already have, except a few that aren't available and a small enough amount that it doens't really justify me spending the amount of time that I do following this thread, but it has just become a routine/habit over the past 2 years.

Edit:  BTW, where can I get replacement laces for my Indy boots?

Lol true. Alden wouldn't be half as relevant to many here if it wasn't for horween in Chicago. Alden Calf is bleh. Their suede and chxl is nice though, for calf dress shoe go with a Vass
