    Yes, good point. Sometimes it's good to throw stuff on here when I get crazy ideas early in the morning. Thanks for the reality check!

    No problem. I'm not much of a follower of rules myself, but black and brown I never mix. Except for that I like them.

    Now that I think about it, it would likely be various shades of grays, from light to darker, in wool. Or navy. Probably not black.

    go ahead.

    what's the actual colour. chilli implies at least a reddish hue, not?

    Lol I already have them in walnut shell and am still considering them. I also like the look of burgundy dundees.

    :slayer:


    Congrats! Enjoy them and watch out - before you know it you'll have a closet full of shell.

    I was going to limit myself to one last pair of shoes for 2012; I've already sent foot tracings to Quoddy to have custom deck-soled chukkas done up to visit my folks' canal boat in Paris next year. Now Allen Edmonds had to go and do THIS...

    I suppose I can eat PB&Js for lunch until February.

    Yup, same boat here... I just got the walnut shell off of eBay and was holding out for the burg cord Dalton from the catalog sneak peak to complete 2012.

    I have reconsidered this and will probably go with a black cord 5th street and a burg cord 5th street from the web gem.

    Now to check on pricing of bulk packages of ramen and how comfortable the couch will be after my wife finds out...

    Very nice. I was lucky and did pickup the walnut shell strands right before they stopped offering them. I am more than pleased with them.

    Sounds like a wonderful effort as regards AE's shell cordovan. I will be very interested in seeing some of the new stuff.

    Yes. Probably my second favorite AE shell model next to my dark brown shell Strands. The comfort is ridiculous. I wear them almost exclusively in casual settings, but I do know that some like to dress them up.

    I'm looking forward to it. The burgundy 5th Streets look great... If only I didn't already have the calf version!
