The detail work on them is very exquisite as well. They come very stiff and take quite a while to break in. I am still breaking mine in. Definitely wait for a RL sale or see if you can get a discount through here or something. Here they are next to my Ravellos (so I don't get boo'd from here)...

Nice looking wingtips Mike. Thanks for the comparison pics.

Zippy, those NST's look great.

My goodness. That is one beautiful shoe but it is way too rich for my wallet. If we're taking a vote, I seriously doubt he will get $1.3k.

Aldens are never worth $1300. Even with the shell prices skyrocketing and Alden shell hitting round $800 those shoes are over-priced by at least $400. At $1300 you are in Vass/GG/EG shell country.

an excuse to not obsess over the scratches I put into a pair of grant lasted #8 boots when I accidentally bumped up against a wheeled-office chair whose wheel coverings protrude.

 

To my disbelief the deer bone did best to remove those fine set office chair scratches at the heal.
