Not sure how unrealistic $600+ shoes are for you, but don't break the bank.  Calf and suede are very nice also.

These, along with the leffot #8 naval w/ antique edge, are competing for first shell purchase. I will not able to wear either to work often, due to environmental circumstances (outside often, rain sleet hail snow...). I'm interested in everyone's thoughts on versatility of the two, as both are available in my size at the moment

There are only 7 participants so far, and the voting is almost evenly split among all the options up for debate: pull-tab, eyelet color, 360 vs 270 welt, and even speedhooks vs no speedhooks is a pretty close debate.

If you haven't logged your info on the spreadsheet and are interested in this, here's the link:

placemarked for later. im definitely in, but am not too picky, so i'll see which way things are leaning before laking my decision

Uncle, these are fine looking shell bluchers.  Was wondering if you thought these Marlow wt's were as comfortable as any of your comparable Aldens.  I have these same Marlows and love the way they look. However, I can not wear them all day long as they are not nearly as comfortable.

I did a quick search and they look like offer a lot of coverage, which would seem like something you didn't want with loafer socks. They don't tend to show?

Negative, Ghostrider. The pattern is not full.
