Very nice collection. Can you elaborate what wingtip this is on the bottom to the right of the moc, with natural edge finish (looks unworn).
Thats what I was guessing, not too many light edge finishes like that around. Nice pick up, enjoy!
Is anyone else waiting on an NRO order from their last sale one month ago? I was told on Feb 14 that my shell tassel mocs were in production and would be completed by March 16. I received an e-mail yesterday that said my shoes have shipped. I have to say that this transaction has been pretty solid. I suppose I should wait until I actually have them in hand before I praise NRO for their improved customer service.
pardon the ignorance. but is this a list of model available to preorder, or list of estimated arrival of preorders? thanks.
Thanks for the seasoned advice to ward off premature, well, you know...Happens to a lot of guys, I'm told!!
I think you're right. It may be wise to wait. Given the infectious enthusiasm on this thread, I've ended up with 9 awesome acquisitions in the last two months. None of them have been regrettable thus far, but I've had far from enough time to truly enjoy each one and figure out the extent to which each pair goes with the different things in my closet. My burgeoning interests, understanding of shell, the different lasts and of the versatility of the various aldens leads me in this clearer moment to think that it's fine to sit tight for a bit. As much as I can imagine the ease with which one can rock natural cxl lwbs (see, eg, El Argentino), it occurs to me that it might feel better to diversify the collection gradually, expanding away from LWBs and boots and instead looking toward the unlined chukkas or maybe a suede loafer or shell bal. Of course, if the opportunity arises to get in on a color 8 Plaza lasted Indy, I won't even ask for your advice, I'm all in!
Hope you guys enjoyed the weekend. -d
