Took a new delivery today gents and I couldn't be more pleased. Nice to grab a pair of rare shell that also fills a hole in the rotation (or maybe just my way of justifying the purchase). Next to splits, perf caps are my favorites and these are on the 379x last that I have been wanting to try for some time. The fit is close to perfect in every way. Similar to Barrie but with a smaller waist and a nicer fit in the heel. Again, could not be more pleased......

Really is hard to tell the difference. And while I have the floor, let me change directions and post a quick pic or two of my Black Ealdwine V-tips after a mod from Aram.........

These also filled a hole for me but while I like black shell, I don't love it. Same with brass eyes. Looks really good on others, but for me, it's more of a change of pace. What I didn't expect is that I would like these as much as I did once they landed. I initially resisted the temptation but ultimately decided that I wanted these to be a regular in my rotation and the only way that was going to happen was to swap the brass for black. Love the results. There are a lot of really good cobblers out there but man, Aram is an artist. Again, very pleased.

Apologies in advance for the long post.
