Shell LHS I acquired from the bay recently. Seller claimed it's whiskey but it looks more ravello to me, but I feel really pleased with the color.
I struggled for a while when I get it as I never tried any van last shoes and Alden SF suggested me to take the same size as Barrie, The LHS is 7.5E and I am 7.5D and Barrie.
Turns out it fits perfectly in both the width and length, it will be certainly too tide for me if it's 7.5D. I am thrilled that I pulled the trigger.
Special thanks to @mdubs
for deciding it's a reasonable deal for me.
Gents, I am sorry that I do not have time to individually compliment you as they are all very worthy.
Steve, glad to hear that you are happy. Whiskey darkens as a normal part of the patina color. The shell approaches its natural brown color over time due to weather, sun, probably oxidation, and products. I still say those look in the Whiskey range. Patina'ed Whiskey is amazing, so rejoice in those! Check out my BB Unlined Whiskey LHS. They have definitely gone much darker with their age.
I owe you all a lot of pictures. Check my IG for previews. The full download will be in soon.
