I am looking for a vote on which suede penny loafer wins this suede off.
Sea Island in 9.5B. Some luck huh.

Then we have the Cavanaugh.

Same place and about the same time for fairness.

Sea Island's color on Cavanna pattern. I'm not a fan of beef rolls
Ordinarily I agree with you, but for the Sea Island it just works.

Again wearing those floppy tongued fools, the Grey Suede Strandmoks.

(Yes, this would have been a better place to take a picture wearing Burberry Nova Plaid trousers than wearing grey glen plaid trousers, but plaid is plaid.)

For fans of "A-E In The Wild" pictures (and pictures with two different glen plaids in them).

View attachment 1228232

Although the Leatherman patchwork Madras belt I am wearing does not match the Grey Suede Strandmoks, the socks (from Golf Knickers) have the same three colors, (pink, blue, and white) as the glen plaid shirt.

For fans of food pictures in shoe threads and for any matchoholics who have read this far and still haven't fled in horror about the shoes and belt not matching, the shirt and the macarons do match.

Last but not least, a picture attempting to balance out all the pictures of Bourbon (the kind in bottles, not shoes) that have been posted in this thread.

So. Good. That is the perfect makeup for that boot. Seriously, the Longbranch should be offered in that makeup year-round. It's like it was designed for Dublin to begin with. Seriously, just getting rid of the gumlite sole on the Longbranch makes it look waaaaaaaaaay better.

Could you imagine a Dublin trunk show with these options:

Boots:
Higgins Mill
Longbranch (or Dalton)
Eagle County (or First Avenue)
Dundee

Shoes:
Strand
Leeds
Randolph
Macneil
Rogue
Players

Give us choices of tan, natural, cognac, navy, green, burgundy, dark brown, and black.

I know a lot of you are salivating about the upcoming cordovan trunk show, but this is the one that would geek me out the hardest.

When you say "how the shell version will fit (at least initially")- can you comment on your experience with HM shell vs chromexcel intial vs later fit? I've dialed in my size on a chromexcel model, and am assuming the shell will be the same. Do you just mean the shell won't stretch as much as the chromexcel?
There may be slight differences due to the lasting process (to avoid tearing the shell), but what I meant by “initially” is that CXL will stretch quite a bit over time. So, a brand new pair of shell HM’s could fit differently than you’ve owned a pair of CXL that you wear regularly for a while. But, a fresh pair will likely fit similarly.

just here to say +1 on tan dublin trunk show! that tan dublin long branch MTO i passed on still haunts me.
Passing on the current trunker will yield similar future haunting.
(If you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with!)

Daughter flying home today from Dublin.
That gives me a boot-plan for the day!
