Here they are...




Wow, terrific pick up. Guess that we got our answer to the eyelet question. Wear in good health!

IMO the 2145 is a better option for you than the 2146, but they are each fine models, and neither is a bad choice. I suspect one day you may own them both. fistbump.gif

NATE HUMBLE FROM ALDEN AT LSBH
On Friday May 24th and Saturday May 25th, Mr. Nate Humble from Alden Shoe Company will be in-store at LSBH to “talk story” about Alden shoes. We will also be releasing a few models to mark the occasion.

Unfortunately due to the current shortage, there will be no shell cordovan releases this time around.

From the LS website.

Yeah,  I can't make up my mind if I like the brass eyelets or would prefer the shoes without them.   Either way I wasn't going to pass up a chance to get some ravellos

I dig the brass eyelets. I think it gives it a bit if casual look for the warmer months
post #51147 of 94354
Makes more sense now. J Crew did not get another round in. They just had a few leftover pairs from the run a few months ago

And just to beat a dead horse, I've found the same to be true for my feet as well. Shell Barrie shoes and shell Barrie chukka boots are all 1/2 size down for me where my Barrie lasted boots were too snug when sized down by 1/2 size. I probably needed an extra 1/4 size for the boots but since that's not possible, I went TTS and added a thin leather insole.

No personal experience but I've often wondered about them myself. You think a triple leather sole on a shell shoe is a bit overkill?

 

 

 

You can see the shoe in that listing and more at Ed Morel's site (Panta clothing) and the manufacturer has some additional images and info at:
