Just ordered and returned a pair of AE Norwich (the equivalent of monk strap on a barrie last) in brown shell.  I have no pics to show, but both shoes were pock-marked with a few small imperfections/depressions (almost like it had been scarred by the measles), and both had splotchy finishing (poor, inconsistent coloring).  I've never seen any Alden shells look remotely this bad out of the box and direct from the factory.

I wonder how many whiskey shortwing bals were made over the past few years. Can't be that many.

PLEASE post some pix. I really would like to see these in real life shots.
