Tom must love it when people who haven't even 'joined the family' yet are misspelling sole, soul.
Remember that they are unlined so a safe bet might be the 9E.

^^nice combo on the pants and shoes! also, good work with the background matching. really digging the suede from alden, but i'm concerned about how long the suede would last. if i can get multiple years out of it, i may have to purchase...

for those with shell high boots - how would you describe the break in period for the "top" of the boot, ie where the laces are tied? when you stand and try to flex forward, do the boots gain a lot of "give"? right now they are quite stiff there, almost like ski boots, but I imagine this area will loosen up?

Some pics for those who haven't seen them before -- sorry for the



Nice whiskeys!

Speaking of Sri, wearing my ravello LWB, purchased from him. Huge fan!

I don't want to pile up the either, but I definitely recommend buying from Sri. He is an absolute gentleman!

Not to worry. They'll break in and become very comfortable with wear.

I have two pair of shell boots, both bought pre-owned on B&S and never had a problem with stiffness...I assume it'll be fine.

I have a new pair of 1947 LVC 501s. Should I worry about bleeding into a whiskey shell shoe if I wear them together?

What size are you? I have a brand new pair for sale crazy cheap.

Not if you cuff. Should be fine. Suede is generally more susceptible to denim bleeding. If you're worried, apply some conditioner, like Saphir Renovateur, to the your shell before wearing.

No, because you should be soaking before wearing them
post #13380 of 98608
They'll still bleed, even after a soak. The question is whether or not anything will get on the shoe. NYR - I've been wearing my pair of 47's for almost two years now. They just keep getting better!
