    No contest - brown shell Dundees. I wear my AE Malvern Chukka boots (virtually the same as the Dundee) on a regular basis with jeans as well as slacks with a sport coat. Very versatile shoe that can be dressed up or down.

    I'm glad you were able to get a pair that worked out, and they do look good on you! We can thank bucksfan for the Jeffersonville outlet connection, all the ladies there are great to work with. Never have personally met any of them but I don't use any other outlet now, it would feel like I cheated on them somehow LOL.
    Adam great job on selecting wheat for the lining, I really like the contrast.

    Johnny the metal strap is solid, very solid it does not bend or flex at all. Mine with 6 cards and $100 in 20's is exactly 1/2 inch thick.

    Being new yet it doesn't close totally flat but just a watch on top holds it down, and a mini mag for reference.
    Once again totally agree with you. I would like to see zero defects, or at least a lot less than we do today.

    Not surprisingly I have used my left front pocket for the same reason, and if in a larger city spread money out in different pockets. Overseas I used to carry a dummy wallet in my right rear pants pocket to throw at someone that wanted it more than me, which happened 3 times in my life. Your card wallet is perfect and I looked at Hollows leather but he is taking a break from custom work right now. Sounds like he is growing pretty fast.

    I did order a card wallet the other day from Asheland in #2 shell, couldn't resist it as #2 shell is a very rare color.

    Make that x3, another vote for the dark brown Dundee.

    I agree. Looks like a photoshop. Shine is nice though.

    I am loving my Mora. I just took some photos to highlight the toe cap difference on these 4 pairs. [​IMG]

    Thank you two [and Cold Iron] very much for the input. I appreciate the feedback. And just like that today, I have swapped my Burgundy Cordovan Bradleys, for the Brown Cordovan Dundees. They are said to be in production as we speak...I feel good about it.

    As much as I'm looking forward to someday owning burgundy shell longwings, there's something absolutely marvelous about a plain toe shell boot or shoe. I think you made the right call. Post photos when you get 'em!
