Oh jeezus, I has swore off the chili shell strands but I just saw @BFT9000 's pair and I am experience major regret.

I'll mull my decision over with some bourbon :[

you made a great decision and now just have something else to put on your wish list :) I will say those Chili strands are rivaling the shaved shell that have come out of the trunk show. (My bourbon HM are on the way I hope they look just like yours)

Happy Tuesday forum pals. A low potential for light sprinkles has placed LA on "STORM WATCH TM" and the weather people are haling out the big fatality tote board in case the gutters fill with water. For me, I will get in another day of shell wear and find appropriate damp-ish weather shoes for tomorrow.

Me, too. I wish I had ordered a Chili Strand with buff edge, split-reverse welt, and double JR to match my green ones and create a cross-pair for red-green Jingle Bell wear.

Ooh good idea. Let's see if I can't pull that off.

As promised, another addition to my collection! More to come in the coming days.

Picked this gorgeous pair up off the 'bay for not too much coin since they were mislabeled as calf... Just dumb luck when I came across them.

Gave them a solid brushing yesterday and a nice coat of VSC (let dry overnight) with some heavy spooning to even out the creases and some nicks here and there. Still need to dress the edges before they go into production. My first Tremont lasted shoe, but I think I've gotten the size down... It's a funky last methinks.

It's interesting that these are a 270 welt but the heel block is more prominent (and wheeled) compared to a traditional 270. This despite the base model, 974 being a 360 welt.

Whiskey shell balmoral :worship2: from what looks like a 2014 run. They've darkened a bit (or this was a darker whiskey run) since new but still hold up well from their original shade.

That's as may be, but I'm willing to bet I act way younger than you actually are. :hide:

I think I have you both beat @Draconestra , however I think @armedferret takes the cake for class clown. :rotflmao:

This is the 333 last? Having never seen it in person, but only your photos it looks looks very similar to Alden's Plaza last with the chiseled toe and exaggerated ball to toe swing.
