Your views on the color differences in hide my friends!






Great looking shoes. I like the color differences. It used to bother me, I even returned a pair cigar boots for that very reason. I now own a few shell pairs with different shades, it doesn't bother me at all.

Gotten kind of quiet here, and I know asking for opinions usually gets lots of responses. I'm thinking of adding another pair of shell to my family and wonder what you all would recommend.

 

Here's the current brood:

2 NST: Burnished Brown, and Chocolate Suede

3 LHS: Whiskey, Snuff Suede, and a #8 I'm trying to sell.

2 Boots: Ravello Brixton, and a Snuff Suede Brixton on order from J. Gilbert.

 

What's next, I've thought of a Shell PTB, a Shell NST,  or a Shell LWB. Thoughts?

Thank you very much MrDV. Those are reassuring words because it still niggles me.

In my humble opinion there are 3 ways to build a wardrobe:

 

1. Go for function and build a wardrode around that ie. boots for winter, lace ups for weekdays and the loafer for weekend

 

2. Go for variety and build a wardrobe where each shoe is as different from the other as is possible. Initially one may focus on different patterns, then different lasts and finally different leathers

 

3. Go for a signature style and build a wardrobe around one particular look ie. just wingtips, just PTBs, just loafers.

 

Just my 2 cents on an approach to building a shoe wardrobe.

Will Alden refuse to resole a shoe if it has been previously resoled by a local shoe repair? I have a pair due for a restoration, and I'd prefer sending it to Alden directly this time around. Aside from needing a new sole, the shoe is in great shape so I wouldn't anticipate a problem otherwise. Thanks for the help!
