    This is my current collection of LWB. They are Walnut & Natural Chromexcel in the Barrie Last, both were from Winn Perry.

    I'm thinking of getting another LWB. But, could decide which would be a good pair to add? Colour #8? Ravello? Cigar? Whiskey?

    Any comments/inputs would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    ^^ Color 8 would add some variety to the browns of your current gunboat arsenal. But why another LWB? How about PTB, NST, SW?

    Thanks and yes, PTB would be another option too.

    #8 longwing is classic, but you would probably also like the PTB and cap-toe versions.
    It's a more unusual color... I rarely see anybody wearing #8 in real life with any style.

    There is some kind of male dilemma where we just keep buying slightly different versions of the same stuff we already own :embar:

    #8 is also not readily available, pretty hard to find.

    You may be right.

    I also find the LWB to be more casual than the PTB, unless it's in suede.

    i would just do it, because no matter how deep it is in the finish, its can't penetrate the shell itself.
    also, I've put deepish scratches into shell and been amazed at how easily they brush out.

    Really?

    I'm always able to get the color to even back out, but the indentation always remains. Are you saying you are able to get the indentation to brush out?
