1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    I could certainly be wrong, but they look much sleeker and pointier than the Tremont Last. Compare to the 974 and you can tell they look different. It may just be the angle of the picture though.

    ^Plaza was what I was thinking, though it seems improbable. Certainly does look like it.

    Uncle,

    Thank you for sharing such a fine example. More brown and less red than I would have expected, almost a light Cigar.

    if not alden, is there another retailer that offers more of a "medium brown" shell shoe/boot? not quite as dark as cigar, not quite as reddish as ravello?

    Hmmm, as I think of the spectrum of shell cordovan, nothing comes to mind that fits this parameter. I'm interested to hear suggestions as well.

    Just a friendly reminder that we are working on a Kudu Indy MTO. Currently, I am in the process of collecting information from SF members so that Moulded Shoe can collect deposits for the order. This may take a few days; so there is still time for people to join the order. This is really a unique opportunity. To my knowledge, there has never been a Kudu Indy boot on the Modified last. PM me if you're interested in more information.

    Always hard to judge color, but I'd suggest having a look at Carmina's cognac shell.

    What about Trickers? I guess Mogano is closer to #8, but I would think they have something like what you are describing. No?


    Edit:



    Quote: ^^^ That appears to be exactly what you have described.



    What about mahogany? Although not currently available, wouldn't that also fit the description?

    researching now, thanks for the lead!
    pretty much exactly what I'm thinking of, although Rider pricing is kinda steep for me lol

    thanks everyone!

    Just came in today! My first pair of Alden shell cordovan. The Cigar Indy boot! I just wanted to share and thank you guys on the forum for posting such great info. These fit great, and look amazing.

    Wish list:
    Ravello cap toe boot
    Whiskey longwings

    I know I'm looking for unicorns, but if anyone spots them please send me a pm. I hope you all have a nice week.

    The smart money says Plaza. The shape of the shoe is quite similar to the Alden for BB WT Bal on the M-75 last (like plaza).

    I think Alden buys all those hides in such large volumes, they don't have to charge as much for it. I usually stick to Alden for my cordovan needs.
