    i'm buying as much shell as I can comfortably afford before pricing pushes me out of the game. if you can get ravello or cigar, I'd say go for it. you can always get tobacco, black, 8 anytime

    imo

    Really wish J.Crew carried some Aldens in narrow sizes so I could jump on this deal :brick:

    I love shell. I really like snuff suede. Is your snuff suede boot a wingtip? If so, then I'd pass on the snuff LWB. If not, then give serious thought to the suede LWB.

    But whatever you do, consider that JCREW right now has 30% off all Aldens. This type of discount almost never happens.

    This shoe - the 994 - gets little play on this thread, but it is splendid nonetheless, as is its black shell brother, the 993. A couple of the most comfortable Aldens that I own ....

    Question:

    I'm highly considering the "Indy" boot, and am leaning towards the original 405 model. However, in a lot of pictures, i notice an almost burgundy/reddish hue either the 403 or 405 or maybe the jcrew 405 (which is a lighter version of the 403 as opposed to the 405?). I was curious, which version gives off that color?

    And it's not the cordovan, bc you can tell when it's cordovan.

    thanks.
