The chap I spoke with (didn't catch his name) sounded amazed and made a point of saying they were all very surprised of the confirmation.

How crucial is carpeting to the Mac Method? I've just gotten my first pair of shell shoes (BB captoes), and I live in a largely carpetless world.

Is the pen/pencil crease largely embraced or shunned by the SF community?

I'm likely overthinking my first shells - thanks for entertaining these questions.

The stiffness of new leather soles can cause rapid wear on the tip of the sole . Wearing them on a non-abrasive surface until flexible can prevent or reduce this .That is what the carpet thing is about.
The pencil crease is really a matter of preference I personally prefer the look of natural random creasing but I dont feel there is anything "wrong " with it .
I dont think you are overthinking this at all. New shell cordovan shoes are an expensive investment and these are pretty basic questions .

Some have referred to these as cigar. But your post says whiskey. Which one?

Either way, nice shoe - although I will say they look considerably darker than my whiskey LHS (but could just be lighting though).

They as model 6746 Whiskey as shown on the Citishoes site. They are a bit darker than most Whiskey I've seen in pictures. I bought them on ebay recently. They are going up to Alden for recrafting soon, I'm interested in seeing them on return.

I'll take that as confirmation that Alden has some Ravello shells to work with!

Whiskey? Wow... I thought Cigar or maybe ravello from a darker batch.  Nice score!

Really excited about these...

They came too late for the Memorial Day family pic.  Extremely comfortable; can already tell they will be a regular staple this fall and maybe some this summer.
