I'm not really a stakeholder in his decision, but I feel that the MKS goes with all of these colors as well.  Except I wouldn't wear either of them with brown, and probably wouldn't find myself wearing olive, generally speaking.

Strangely yes. After a few uses of XL Woodlore shoe trees in my Leydon 13E's I stopped as they started developing strange creases at the heel area. I was thinking of using the size L instead.

I really like the Brooks Bros. version of the unlined Snuff PT. Prefer the eyelets, storm welt and contrast stitching compared to similar make ups I've seen.

I like'em

Here's a nice video of these:

I like them, though now that they're full price, I'd personally opt for the 2161 (not a perf cap toe, though).

I haven't seen the snuff in person, but it just looks inappropriately orange for a Tassel Moc in the pic on their website.


Always this:


But I think they are overpriced considering you can get Shell Tassels for $84 more, and I got my MKS Tassels from BB for $350.

Wow very nice , I can get both at a good price also, I don't think I'll ever pay retail for any of these.

What I like about the snuff is that it looks like it has the flex sole but not 100% sure.

Not a fan of the tan in that particular model.

Thanks.
