When they were new.

 

Shell Indys have not been on my want list until I saw these.  Absolutely magnificent!  They are now on my list.  Not sure if I should thank you or not. Enjoy.

Disagree on both counts. Alden is quality, shell or calf.

 

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.

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)

I really wanted that Stockton but they do not have it in my size.

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 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
