    The price is astronomical, especially compared to the price last year. IIRC, they were $575 or $595 last year.

    I'm not a fan of either the Barrie last or the whiskey color.

    heh heh, notice I dare not say this at the Trad section of AAAC, for fear of being summarily beaten and thrown out. [​IMG]

    Nontheless, my original opinion stands. I don't like whiskey. It takes away the rich patina of shell cordovan.

    Not after they've been worn for a while. Incredibly beautiful depth of color.

    There is a premium for the ol' ladies to sew up that NST. The whiskey is high but is only a $50 premium to the standard issue #8 shell version. Heck even the calf is $440 now.

    I prefer cigar...I've been trying to resist going down to the Alden on Madison and getting a pair of the chukkas in cigar. The only thing stopping me is the price, though I think they're only $615, not 675
