I just checked the spreadsheet...I see ZERO purchases of black shell, only one Park Sneaker (mine), just a single purchase of burgundy shell, and only 2 purchases of brown shell.

Just FYI, if you hit the space key after you type the color, it will provide the correct color. For some reason, just typing the color is not enough.

Someone needs to get the Fifth Street in black or brown with Dainite or V-tread as a bad-weather suit boot. Burgundy works too. Seems like a no-brainer, though I get that it's hard to compete with the rarer colors. I would, were in a financial position to justify multiple orders this season. And admittedly, there's one or two other pairs that would be higher up on my list.

We need a sticky or something to the spreadsheet link.

I have to say that I did consider this myself, but I almost never wear a suit. It would go well with my burgundy suit, though. I did have a 3-4 occasions this year to wear a suit, but normally that is 1 at most. I own 4 suits and probably 3 shoes that I wear exclusively with suits, with another 3 or 4 shoes that are rarely, but can be, worn with something other than a suit. As you can see, adding another suit shoe to the mix would mean it sits on the shelf.

Not a bad idea, but i tend to lean towards other leathers / materials with rain or bad weather.

Happy Friday Eve!!

MTO brown shell Jefferson 1.0. I’ll go down fighting that these are some of the best MTO AE ever made. Blessed to have a pair; they make me smile every time I get them out and about.

I went with the Dalton again today. If they ever offer it in a trunk show again, I would consider another, but only if we can do the split reverse welt

My wardrobe has been more casual ever since we switched to “work from home.” At first I wore chinos. Now I usually wear denim. The Higgins Mill, Patton, and Freeport get a lot of wear.
Today I received a watch that perfectly fits that casual wardrobe.
I love it already.

40% of the time, I wear pijamas. 40% of the time, i wear jeans because I went into the office or have to soon go or just went out to drop off/pick up the kids. The rest of the time, I’m not wearing pants

I just received all the shell samples in my store, our Trunk Show Event is tomorrow! I tried on the Navy Fifth Street since its close to my size (I'm normally 9E). I think I might have to buy it. This would be my first Shell Cordovan pair. I think it's only fitting considering I'm AE_Lauren, right?

Any chance they switched from 9 D samples to 8 D?
