These are awesome. Did you rotate which part of the shoe was facing the sun every once in a while to get an even fade?
Yes. I did a rotation one of left, right, front, back per day.

Then I compared the colors to maintain some consistency.

Alden x JCrew longwings for wingtip Wednesday View attachment 1190909View attachment 1190910
Really loving the shine you got on the tips of those! Looks great!

After 3 months of sun fading these two Color 8 pairs, my “Sunrello” shoes are at the perfect color for me.

The color is somewhere between Ravello and Mocha. A nice red/brown mixture.

Most don't, including myself, as broken in calf/suede fits pretty close to broken in shell. Shell doesn't stretch as much, but it does tend to mold.
I personally wonder if you wouldn't be happier in 8.5D shell, assuming it's your best feeling Barrie now?
I wonder too if I could also fit a 8.5D in shell. But I do know their is no way I could go a 8D in calf after trying on the 8.5D, even though I also have 8D in shell. So that’s why I thought different leather also can effect sizing.

The calf will stretch more than the shell, so it is possible that after a while the 8.5 might be "too big".
