Personally, I'm partial to Alden's snuff color for the suede, but wouldn't turn my nose up at the dark brown. I have a handful of shoes and boots in the snuff suede and can think of a few more I still want. I just think that's one of the nicest suede colors that any of the comparable shoemakers use. I think their suede is often overshadowed in many forums by the love of shell cordovan.

In the end, you won't go wrong with either choice though.

I'd go snuff.  It's a great medium brown shade, with just a hint of orange. The shoes I have here are a little bit less washed out- the photo under office lighting isn't that great:

Boots like that make me realize I don't need cigar, ravello, etc. Color 8 never looked better IMO.

Good Evening All,

I wished to pose a question to the forum to see what everyone has to say. I also thought that it would be fun to post my shoe family one at a time. I will save you the task of counting, I currently have 21 pairs of shoes (16 in Shell Cordovan, 4 in Calfskin, and 1 in Suede) with four more on the way (3 in the mail, 1 on order). So, how many shoes is too many?

Here is my entire collection, the shoes that are still on their way or listed below. Thanks in advanced!

Nice collection. For some reason your #8 chukkas look particularly nice IMO.

Do you do anything special when taking your pictures? They have a unique feel to them.

I'm curious: which 3 or so get the most use? And, which 3 or so would you part with last?

Those are some difficult questions. Most used is probably as follows:

1. Alden Perf Cap Toe in Color 8
2. AE Cambridge in Burgundy Shell
3. AE Stand in Walnut Shell

(1&2 are my beater shoes, 3 was my first Shell Shoes and I love their color, very Ravello-ish)

Most reluctant to part with is very hard to say, but probably is as follows:

1. Alden Longwings in Whiskey
2. AE Jeffersons in Cappuccino Shell
3. Alden Ravello LHSes

But that probably changes often. I really love my Color 8 tassels (they are just fun) and my AE Walnut Shell Stands.
