I don't think there will be a big change in the B Grade page for Black Friday unfortunately.

We will have a promotion this year for Black Friday including a handful of shoe styles being discontinued along with B grades. The sale will start Monday and will go through Cyber Monday. It will be setup so no discount codes will be needed.
So the 25th - 2nd?

I hope you consider at least one thing in EEE for the sale. Black diesel if I'm voting......

One of my favorites characteristics of this shell color is the highs and lows throughout. Your 2nd photo shows the darker hue of the shell on the counter while the quarters are lighter. We always try match within pairs so they aren't completely different vamps or something but definitely not a cookie cutter boot.
And it's funny as the color hues are only apparent under certain light conditions. In full sun, or a darker room, they are the same all over.

I've been delaying posting these and although some posted here, I have to add mine. Also, just bought my first camera (for the wife mainly, early Christmas present) so I've been having fun taking photos of said shoes and finding an excuse to photograph anything....

I refuse to spoiler Goodyear Welted goodness!! My first (hopefully not last) Grant Stone!

Navy suede Ottawa boot with beautiful toe stitching and insane SPI on the welt. Also, the cleanest welt joint I've ever seen. I look forward to wearing these a lot. I am extremely impressed and the fit is perfect. Removed the original laces and installed AE rounds.

Thank you @GrantStone these are incredible.

Craaaap - I've got a Whiskey Shell Tanker on pre-order, and I've already paid for it. No Honey Shell for me :(

Interesting - if it's appropriate, could you advise where you're ordering the shell tanker boot from? If you'd rather not say in this thread, please feel free to PM me with details. Thanks!

Great boots. But IMO, those laces are incongruous. They are rather wimpy.

I understand why @savvysartorial replaced the leather laces with round laces. The leather laces shipped with the boots are nice GS leather laces, but the boot needs something a tad less "work boot" looking, and round laces work well. Perhaps a thicker round lace (GG or Hanger Project) as the AE are rather skinny.

But, whiskey and honey shell are two different colors........
They are, but the well is beyond-dry and the closet is over-full. I've got nothing I want to part with :(

I missed the last batch by size, and this one by time, but I'm jazzed to see them go to folks who have been waiting - the Honey Shell looks fantastic!
