    Looks like they got their inspiration from the Edward Green Windsor: http://uptowndandy.blogspot.com/2011/07/vintage-edward-green-john-hlustiks.html

    The Windsor is a blucher, but John Hlustik (one time owner of Edward Green) came up with the design concept.

    It's Namor we're talking about. I would be shocked if he was inquiring about AE calf. Also, not sure if you were trying to post what he is looking for, but I think he is asking about an adelaide like this:

    A big plus one for all the shell MTO Bayfields. Really like those.

    I'm really considering purchasing a pair of Bourbon Strands seconds before the RDA sale ends.. Does anyone happen to know a price to save me a phone call?

    Ah yes. I have a mile long walk to the subway station every morning. I can jump on a bus if it's too gross out but I prefer to walk in the morning unless it's exceptionally disgusting.

    Hey Ryden. Did you find your recent cappuccino shell makeups to be more dry feeling than other shell shoes you own?

    Have you or will you wear them before you treat them? I wore my capp. Dundees once and where the creases formed are a bit rough. No other shell I have did this.

    Damn those are really nice. Looks like reading through the recent posts is that cappuccino is gone. I tried on some Dalton's yesterday but I'm thinking about cleaning out the closet to raise funds for an MTO makeup that can be my go-to shoe.

    This is my 3rd wearing of my Bayfields and they are a bit dry. I will probably treat them and my Dundees over the weekend. I likely will not wear my Dundees before I treat them. That is more a function of the amount of footwear I have then any feeling about not wearing them prior to treating them :)

    Interesting that yours are rich. I have not experienced that. I would imagine a conditioner and some heavy brushing will fix them right up for you

    Thanks! I think they would look great in dark brown as well. Really any of the cordovan colors would make up well. Plus the Poron insole is super comfortable.

    Thanks, Ryden. Looks like I'll be ordering some reno today. I wish I could get reno and Alden leather defender from the same place. I want to get both. I want the defender for my Indys.
