    Thanks, bud. I'm a huge fan of the wingtip boot. I've got pairs in black, color 8, Natty CXL, and I'm expecting Ravello from Alden Madison in the next month or so. Great boot.

    Do yourself a favor and buy a pair in black. Now. I promise you won't regret it.

    Love those! Instajelly!!



    That was me and those were the boots I posted yesterday. Glad I could simplify the decision for you.
    Funnily enough, when I was deciding on black, commando boots it was between the ones you just received from AoC or the Leffot. Obviously we know my decision.
    Enjoy those beautiful boots!

    A few months ago in Ebay, there was a BNIB black shell wingtip boot, Alden for J Crew, f360' flat welt on double leather for $525 (size 10D). I can not believe I let this slip through my hands! If I hadn't gone with these cap toe boots on commando, I would still be kicking myself! I missed out on a great boot!

    Did anyone here happen to snag that pair??

    Hey, I've been lurking on the thread for years and haven't really shared.

    This was my first pair of shell, purchased in 2012. Photo is from a few weeks ago. When I finally came around to purchasing a a "proper" pair of shoes my uncle, who also has many 20+ year old shell shoes in his rotation, impressed upon me the value of both shell and Alden. He also reminded me that my grandfather swore by shell and in particular had a pair of LWB for over 30 years. So one day I simply walked into Alden Madison asked if they had a pair of LWB in shell cordovan, figured out my size, and walked out wearing these. Since then I've picked up a few more : ).
