Wow, Mario has just insulted a great deal of people that follow this thread.  But that's okay.  Tis the season to look beyond our differences, no matter how great.  In the spirit of reaching out beyond my gunboat collection, below is my newest  shell addition.  Not the sexiest piece, but a solid go-to staple in my wardrobe...

9901 (Black shell PTB)

Those saddles from Unionmade are really nice. I've wanted a saddle for a while but never saw anything I really liked, but those are great.

EDIT: too bad they're on the Barrie and only come in D widths, not gonna work for me.

I think the #8 Shell LWB might be the perfect platform for Shell

 

I only have Whiskey Shell LWB's and I love them and look forward to the aging/patina process to make them even better.

 

I would split the difference.  Agree with you on the first as I enjoy calf Aldens as well as their shell.  But on the second, I have to agree with Mario --- the plainer the shoe/boot, the more shell cordovan's unique attributes are appreciated.  But of course, this is all subjective.

Just got my J. Crew #8 captoes, definitely brand new and super dark #8 (almost black) so it's literally perfect for me icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I've been going after rare cordovan colors and suede... In 2013 I will focus more on basics, like this one - black PTB, color 8 tassel, etc

Thank you and Happy Holidays!

Question: I just received my Indys from J.Crew and I noticed the stitching was undone in one area. Was wondering is this acceptable or will present a problem once I start wearing them? See the pic below.

0 or 1. I'm fond of the $400 #8 PTB's seconds I got off TSM.

Certainly not a long-wing. The only value-proposition to Alden is in their shell shoes, and a LWT has to be the worst platform to showcase shell IMO.

The last paragraph = curious, and seemingly unprovoked.
