HaHa. You apparently have a fashion trend to start. Sounds like a pretty expensive one though, as you need to spend 1400 to pull off with Shells...

Actually, if you have a pair of color 8 tassels you could pick up this single (black shell tassels) to go for the two tone look... should be pretty cheap!

Also trying to narrow down my next purchase (I have lots of bluchers)...

 

Color 8 NST, Aberdeen

Color 8 or black shell straight tip, Aberdeen (recent picks have me really interested

Black shell monochromatic saddles

black shell wingtip bal, Tremont

black shell wingtip boot, barrie

 

anyone in love with any of these options?

I like the NST and the straight tip.
Is there a perf. captoe blucher? That would be sweet. I'm also thinking of the medallion captoe blucher in #8. At least that would be something that I don't have in boot form.

I have never heard this rule and have heard a contrary rule (no black with navy except under limited circumstances).  Interesting times we live in!

OK then. Screw it. I'm just looking for another derby to buy, then! LOL

Dark Oak with navy is like peanut butter and chocolate. Trust me.

This is very interesting. I've always thought navy and brown is a great combo. I also like navy with black, though not as much as with brown or #8. Navy and #8 were made for each other.

They look like shell but I didn't recognize the model number (2450), and thought the seller was claiming calf as shell, even though they look like shell. Turns out model 2450 is #8 on the barrie last (see citishoes, for example).

Could not agree more.

I dunno...maybe I am missing something else in #8. I only have the LWB and the rest of my #8 are boots. I just feel like when I look in my closet in the morning I need another versatile derby option.

2210 is the way to go tif. I keep passing it over for other "special" models. I actually prefer the derby to the tanker boot.

So you have #8 LWB, cap toe boot, and NST boot, and are looking for another style in #8. Thoughts on a PTB or chukka?

I suspect any reluctance to wear brown with navy comes from the British "brown in the country, black in the city" rule. But see, for example, Italy.

Had to hit up the archives, as I don't wear them enough.

The 2210 is def. near the top. I also like the medallion captoe.

I have actually considered selling my Tanker. GASP! I love it, but I feel it is going the way of my shell Indy...to nice(shiny) for casual and too casual to wear to the office. I have really been re-thinking a lot of things lately. haha

Yup. I am not a fan of plain toe shoes. I tried a PTB and a Chukka in the past.
