    No I did not hold anything back :) this was a too good of opportunity to pass on. Harlech was on my wish list the first time I saw it in the C&J catalog. We all deserve to be congratulated on getting this going, initially I was interested in dark brown version but how often will I be able to purchase whiskey shell from one of premier makers for such reasonable price?
    It is a irony that I am the first to receive them. I am off to go skiing so these will be in storage for a couple of weeks. Anyways now there are dirty baker's dozen of us so if we meet on the streets the code word is "SF Harlech"

    .Great choice for your very first shell

    So based on what you've seen based on this pair do you think you'll be purchasing more shoes or boots in shell in the future.

    Sounds interesting, first I think I've heard of this term being used with shell. But then again almost everybody has their own names for their various different colors. I have a walnut shell boot from Rider Boot Co, and a caramel shell shoe from Rancourt. The actual color of both is about the same though. I can't remember now what color they called my boot from St Crispins but if it were from Alden it would be called Cigar.

    Anyway I hope to get a green shell fairly soon, and I will more than likely get a navy eventually.

    Based on how the 335 cordovan Skye 2 fit me vs #8 LWB - I would suggest a whole size down from Barrie ie a 9D Barrie I would suggest an 8E in C&J 335 last. I.E the 335 fits half a size large. It is (like Barrie / TruBalance) a wide / high volume last.

    Cinnamon shell? Is this a C&J rumor - where did you hear it?

    Looks like my booties will arrive tomorrow.

    Not C&J. I read somewhere on the Internet that Horween produce it.

    Lauren's sending out emails on Sunday? No, I haven't received anything, no tracking number and no boots (yet). But I did email Lauren so I'm hoping she can send me the tracking info when she gets in tomorrow morning so I know when the boots will arrive. I would rather they not sit out on my doorstep.

    Got my tracking info from Lauren. Looks like my boots made it onto the USPS truck just barely in time for delivery today. I usually don't get delivery till late in the day so will be sitting on my hands all day. Hoping someone who gets an earlier delivery will post pics right away.

    Mine is out for delivery now too. I usually receive USPS packages in the evening (about 6pm), so will either have some photos up late tonight or tomorrow.

    I'm working from home today so I may have to STOP work as soon as they get delivered.
