    I'm not sure if these have already been covered heavily as I'm a bit new here. I understand the stigma with Patent leather but I can't keep my eyes off these. Do you think these are too flashy for an "office" environment?

    Rejoice: Just got this from Allison. I can honor the RDA sale price that is not a problem. The price would be $505.75.

    Yes. Too flashy for any environment. I can't think of any situation where those shoes would be appropriate.

    Well crap. I just bought a pair of #8 rancourt rangers, #8 MacNeils and natty beefrolls. But a $500 custom ordered shell might just be too good to pass up. The question is, what do I want? Brown leeds with a double sole and antique finish? See if they'll use the unlined neumok patterns with shell, and get unstructured shell wingtips (or longwings?) I have enough #8, so brown I guess is the color to go with. But this is gonna be a tough decision...

    I'm sure your right arm is used to that motion, you can do it.

    They may be obnoxiously shiny but I can't get over the blue stitching.

    I've been pondering some relatively casual boots and that tipped it; just sent in a request to get the ball rolling on some 14A reverse-welt cappuccino shell Bayfields. If they've run out of that leather I'll just get 'em done in a lighter shade of Dublin or Chromexcel instead.

    THANKS, ALL YOU ENABLERS

    THANKS A LOT

    LOL I was just in a wedding, and you should have seen the shoes that the tux rental tried to push on us. Patent (p)leather, blucher design with 3 eyelets, squared toe, weird stitch design, plastic soles... yuck.

    I (with the groom's permission) wore my highly shined black shell Park Aves. He wore some nice patent leather plain toe bluchers.
