    Would hate for that to happen on any shoe, but hurts more on shell for me.

    Last time I checked with Lauren (only a few weeks ago) C&J were unwilling to change lasts for shoes as it would involve an entirely new design.

    An "Alt-Wien Newport" in whiskey would be outstanding!

    Agreed totally

    Whiskey is not a versatile color. Also a little jarring because of its brightness

    I'd like a brown cordovan. Call it an "Alt Wien" Marlow

    I would be in it for some grain color be it Cheviot or Alt Wien. C&J has so many grain offerings. What do you guys think? How many are interested? I am thinking about sending Lauren a message to inquire about various grain offerings or maybe @hoit1981 (pretty please) would mind dropping by C&J store in NY and taking pictures of grain swatches. I think you were at some point interested in grain colors too.

    My whiskey Harlechs are my most supple cordovans - the quality of the C&J whiskey is outstanding. The Newports in whiskey would be amazing. Brown C&J cordovan is a fantastic color, but more difficult to maintain and take care of. I really like C&J whiskey.

    Haven't there already been 2 C&J whiskey projects already? And from the looks of it, there's a whiskey Cheviot gaining steam.

    Not every shoe needs to be whiskey. Can't we give brown a chance? :D

    How about a different direction from cordovan? For those of us in the really cold areas, a shearling lined Snowdown would be great! [​IMG]
