    I agree with that logic. I've never understood this. Some models they could do:
    Burgundy Strand
    Black Strand
    Brown Leeds
    Brown MacNeil
    Brown Bradley
    Black Bradley (they made this at one point, actually)
    Brown Cambridge
    Black Dalton
    Brown Dalton

    And those are just the ones that I would buy (or have managed to buy already).

    I think the Norwich would be a damn good looking shoe in burgundy shell. I just can't get a good fit on that shoe.

    My understanding is that do not generally keep uppers on standby for shell anymore. So why can't they just do all of their shell offerings in any of the three colors? It's literally just a color switch.

    Am I the only one here excited for the return of the Wendell?

    I would kill for a pair in shell. Suede could be nice too. Or a pebble grain leather. Or sharkskin.

    Malones for Friday. These look a lot more walnut than the brown I thought they would be, but they still look nice.

    One of my favorite shades of cordovan, the brown on these Dundees has such great variation as well as olive undertones, it's just beautiful.

    Oh man, those are the colors I'd want them in, too (assuming Color 2 isn't available for the Cornwallis). Love the Carlyle in blue and the Rogue in burgundy.

    McTavish on this casual Friday. This is the cognac color which is at the lighter end of the spectrum from others I have seen. Really appreciate this shoe for jeans and other casual wear.

    You forgot stingray! It's way better than most bicycle toes. Shell might roll weird. Suede all the way.

    Yes indeed.
    The Walton in black makes no sense to me.
    I'd love a pair in brown, or even better in oxblood.

    Bourbon was too expensive of a color. Its inconsistency and striping led to way too many seconds. I love the color, but completely understand why they dumped it. It wasn't profitable enough to keep.

    Yes, that's correct. I was charged $40 extra for double JR soles on top of stock price for my Burg Shell PAs.

    PAs usually come with single JRs
