    Brown pebble Macneil's are ordered. I saw the same makeup in my local outlet (no Poron and leather sole vs Poron and Dainite on the Nordstrom shoe) and really liked it.

    I thought for a bit that it may be a bit redundant with my Kiowa but that has a more chili look and is the Strand pattern on lug sole.

    Are Nordstrom Rack AE's 1st quality? (that's not always saying much).

    Same for me. I love the aging CXL does with this process

    It seems that the trunk show has brought a few more to the group.
    I suppose it’s time to welcome them.

    They look dark enough where it wont create too much distraction. I've seen people wear walnut strands so think navy will be fine. Cornwallis is a great looking shoe as well and likely a safer option. Either one would be great just not sure how these would fit into rotation.

    Any closer to weaseling you now?

    Don’t hold your breath for the black one - I didn’t order that one.

    Question for the shell Leeds owners: How small of a gap between the facings is too small?

    I just received my black and burgundy pairs from the big sale late last year. The black fit me normally, but the burgundy only have a gap of 1/4 to 3/8 inch on each shoe.

    Is this too small to account for footbed settling and whatever minor stretching the shell may have?

    Those look really good, waiting on a chili or maybe even a walnut to show up on the bank. I have two shoes in walnut already so probably wait for Chili.

    What you are referring to may, in fact, be the Atlantis which was made for J. Press. I'm a fan.

    Boy, those walnut woven Strands are mighty nice looking. Probably better than the Shreveport. Time will tell if it's true love or just infatuation.

    I was never a fan of the Shreveport because I thought the plain cap looked weird against the busy/detailed/intricate weave. The Strand’s broguing fixes that. I’m way more tempted than I should be...

    And surprisingly, I’m actually tempted by the walnut, because that would make a killer summer shoe against seersucker or lighter colored linen.
