Folks- what’s the difference between whiskey and brown shell? I thought whiskey/ravello was a trade name Alden used for brown tbh.

I own the C&J/RL shell PTB if that’s at all helpful here.

Whiskey and Ravello are both Horween shades for shell. Ravello (medium brown with red undertones) is Alden exclusive but Whiskey (much lighter tan) is used by Alden, C&J and a few others. I suspect the dark brown C&J uses is Horween's Dark Cognac but I'm not sure.

If this MTO is still active, it’s at 12 people now. Happy to throw my hat in the ring.

I saw that... can anyone answer if the intention for the welt color on these is the contrasting traditional welt shown above, or the matching dark welt depicted in the other picture on the MTO tab (not shown)?

Edit: including Zargoz' sweet make-up of these for reference:Zargoz brown Dundee.jpg

False alarm anyway- I just noticed #8 pulled out. My mistake folks.
