I've always wished that my Whiskey LWBs were a shade darker. The batch of whiskey these came from must have been a pretty light batch. The lightness has limited my wearing them a bit.

I got a little daring tonight (no actual whiskey involved) and put some Kiwi wax paste on them.

At first I went for the mid tan, but then I got the dark tan out in a bold step! Gasp!

I like 'em....they are more like Honey than Whiskey now.
Here are some before and after shots.

I really like my "tiger maple ravello loafers"

You can get about 10% off by shopping instore at Sherman Bros. I'd imagine you might get the same discount over the phone, most likely if you have established a relationship with a salesman. Of course they only stock the very standard models in #8 and black shell.

It is still number 1 on my grail list though. I have to saw as well that color 8 naval boot looked amazing in person congrats to those who kopped a pair. Madison also had a cool suade indy boot with a red brick sole.

Wow, great score. I'd take a blemish (or tiger stripes biggrin.gif ) over 'damaged shell' like a scratch or ripples.

I got my TSM black shell monks today. I can get away with an 11.5 plaza last w/ insole, but for some reason, the aberdeen is just too big, even with insoles. Serious bummer. Was really looking forward to these. Very sad.

I am tts 9.5D. My aberdeen color 8 shell monks in 9.5D are among my most generous fitting 9.5''s that I own. But part of that is the nature of the monk strap style which, in my experience, always tends to fit less snug.

Has anyone made sense of why Alden is saying not to expect any exotic shell colors for the foreseeable future, while other shoemakers, such as Carmina, Vass etc., do not seem to have a similar problem with their equivalents of Alden's exotic shell colors?  One of Alden SF's salespersons said that Alden told them not to expect any exotic shells in any style for the rest of the year.
