I have the Snuff, it's much better looking in my opinion ..... different Chukka look.

beales arrived...quick shot...

I was thinking about maybe replacing the top row of eyelets on each shoe with brass eyelets. Frans boone has a cigar ptb with all brass and it's a bit much for me, but maybe doing just the top would add a nice accent without overpowering it...

satisfying or sacrilege?

Agree with this.  It'd probably look off just having the top row.  They look good how they are, but I think brass eyelets would look good too.

I think brass eyelets would be great, too, especially given the contrast between the light-coloured welt and the rich cigar upper/edge trim.

I would go with the color8, but I find AoC to be pretty rude and unreasonable. i would never buy from him again.
leathersoul is amazing.
cigar shell chukka is the way to go i think though, as cigar shell is hard to come by that is a superb classic makeup.
post #29817 of 87921
Because I have the day off and nothing to do, here is a rainbow of shell for your viewing pleasure. Direct sunlight is pretty harsh; for example, the cigar shell doesn't usually appear so olive, but the blazing sun revealed some green undertones. Nevertheless, this photo may help some folks get a feel for how the most common colors compare.

From left to right:
Alden color #8 (new)
Alden color #8 (old)
Alden cigar (new)
C&J brown (RL Polo, old)
Alden ravello (new-ish)
Alden whiskey (starting to age, and looking more like ravello each year)

I think it's a tough call between the AF53 and the jumper boot. I think the jumper boot looks better if you compare the brand-new pics on each website, but after seeing Morgan's picture, it's a real tough decision. I think once the AF53 starts creasing, it's a fantastic-looking boot. I'd probably go with the AF53 out of those. In my opinion though, nothing really beats the Alden X J.Crew QB boot in color #8.

this picture to me is a very compelling argument for those on the ravello obscura pre order to consider whiskey as a more expediant alternative.

^great family shot Morgan

Epaulet #8 Brixtons again....whoever said darker shell colors are not appropriate summer wear needs to get out in the sun more often! I love the way #8 shell looks in bright sunlight icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
