    I really enjoy my Kenilworth's but I will definitely be adding a pair of Leeds into the mix soon... they just fit so well with denim.

    thanks for posting -- I was thinking about adding Commando soles to my shell burgundy MacNeil's so this helps me picture what they would look like..

    Damn rainy weather always has me concerned!

    I absolutely love a good pair of shitkickers. I've been kind of babying my own #8 shell MacNeils just a bit too much; some soles like that might do me a world of good. Thanks for the inspiration! Right now I've got #8 shell Daltons, MacNeils, and Graysons; it's taking everything I've got not to pick up the #8 shell Leeds on the seconds list in my size to round out the set... and I'll probably buy those anyway within the next six or eight months. :embar:

    I am considering unloading the MTO Black Shell Daltons I had made up.
    Sad reality...The fit is just not great for me.

    Thanks, I think they are turning into a wonderful casual shoe. If I can lighten them just a bit more and impart a bit of brown into them with some polishing I will be super happy, so far so good though.

    They look great - shame they don't fit... What things did you change about the boot in your MTO?
    Speaking of shell Daltons:

    These will be a welcome addition! I can't remember who got me started down the shell path, but...curse you - and THANKS!!! Tent sale cop; was holding a shoe I was debating sending back, then I saw these. for less than my calf strands?!? Even I'm not that stupid. Seamless exchange. Whomever sent these back was only trying on the left shoe, so a little TLC is in order for that one. Mwah...Ciao, Bella!

    Hey guys, I apologize for my absence, but I do come bearing good news. I finally picked up my Burgundy Cambridges today, and I absolutely love them! I also ordered myself a little gift, which I will be sure to post tomorrow when they arrive (I'll give you a hint, it's more shell). But, without further ado, I present to you the Cambridges.

    I wear my kenilworths with a suit all the time. In my opinion, an elegant plain toe black blucher is more formal than a wingtip balmoral with perfing all over it

    I agree in the abstract, but ain't nothing elegant about Leeds or McNeils. Those are grade-A shit-kickers.

    Leeds are way too blobby, I dont get the appeal. I was more referring to the Kenilworth, which are pretty sleek to me. Not euro status, but real classy

    I really like the new palm drives. They look pretty sleek

    nice catch. they were sitting at the shoebank for a month or so, and then they dropped to the said price.

    btw - does anyone else wonder why the daltons have no serration (pinking?) at the edges of the wingtip?

    Still waiting for the oxblood/burgundy cordovan daltons to be sale priced. Those are the best, IMHO. So unique

    Yes Sir,

    These things are serious business. If it is raining or snowing or whatever, I grab the shell McNeil's on Commando's.
