Nothing fancy - Gap Skinny from 2010 or so - before the denim quality & details really plummeted.

Perhaps the reason that Shell is in a shortage right now is because Horween has started selling it to customers that were not previously in the business! Check these PTB's out by The Frye Company.

What you are describing is not uncommon with Alden. I've owened several pair of wingtips and atleast one in each pair has this "problem"

And I don't mean to derail the thread, I just thought everyone would find it interesting to know where some of that precious shell is going.

Those are nice.  Frye also has a shell boot available through Neiman Marcus.  I like both the blucher and boot but not with the Frye logo on the side.

You've got to be kidding me. And a 100$ upcharge from Alden.

I think the frye shell offerings are intended to attract more attention to te brand and elevate its name in consumers minds. case in point fryes entry into the upscale neiman Marcus. Think ford gt amongst a slew of midsize cars and pickup trucks. It's hard to believe that fryes would produce an exact style to compete with a market leads and the. List it for $100 more

Alden is definitely seeing a lot of competition lately. the interesting part of the Frye PTB is that it seems to have a nice sheen that is typical of Alden. AE also rolled out a new finish recently too.

Is the glossy finish's secret out? How come I didn't hear of it?

Most of my LWBs have this. Also, a handful of other wingtips (I have a pair of GMP that has this) that I own have this. I think it is where the vamp leather piece and the wing attached. Has not bothered me but again, you might have a different impression.

Does anyone have any "real life" photos of the Leffot pre-order saddle shoe in Color 8/Alpine Grain?  I am intrigued and would love to see how they look after some wear. 

 

Thanks.
