    Nah I'm not trolling I just got the shoes for pretty cheap and I wear them with jeans and stuff and want them to be a little more casual/worn in. I like them looking beat up.
    Take pictures before and along the way please. I think it would be the first pics of such a project posted. [​IMG]

    ^I've seen monk straps on Plaza lasts but that is pretty much the same narrowness as aberdeen. The style is really dressy so I don't think Alden makes it on a wider last.
    The monkstrap is also made on the Leydon last on occasion. Here's a link to a pic of said shoe… http://www.theshoemart.com/mas_asset...D/FD-1536Y.jpg

    Fellas,

    Are there monk straps out on the wider lasts or is it strictly aberdeen?


    I swear I saw a barrie Monk strap today, in suede, on ebay? Can't find it anymore

    Indys on the modified look awesome.
    Anatomica in Paris carry them I believe, but the French price put me off them.

    In case anybody's looking for some brand new natural chromexcel plain toe boots in size 10D, I put mine up on the B/S forum (or you can check out my signature). I just think they are too duplicative to all the other Aldens you guys have tempted me to buy, so want to give them a new home.

    The shoes look great. The more I see the pics of shell shoes the more I think I need to add one pair before they get so expensive I can not justify the purchase.

    what is the best way to clean ravello shell? I wore mine to a party last night and they got spattered with margarita, i think, and there are little dots all over them. I rubbed them down with a damp cloth, but the spatter marks are still there.

    I am panicking!

    Very common to shell…a lot of brushing and time will remove these spots.

    those spots come off when you pull the shoe out of that person's ass who spilled on you. that, or brushing.

    Those are awesome. I love the color. I find it very versatile. [​IMG]

    These are great boots. I agree, I have a lot of shoes that duplicate the other shoes. But it is nice havign them. [​IMG]

    Did you make those up, or can they be bought somewhere? My Winn Perry cigar 968 Palntations are my favorite pair.

    Well done.

    awesome advice, except the spiller may very well have been me! [​IMG]

    I will brush and brush, but it kills me that this happened -- they were spotless yesterday!
