    Those saddles from Unionmade are really nice. I've wanted a saddle for a while but never saw anything I really liked, but those are great.

    EDIT: too bad they're on the Barrie and only come in D widths, not gonna work for me.

    I would split the difference. Agree with you on the first as I enjoy calf Aldens as well as their shell. But on the second, I have to agree with Mario --- the plainer the shoe/boot, the more shell cordovan's unique attributes are appreciated. But of course, this is all subjective.

    Just got my J. Crew #8 captoes, definitely brand new and super dark #8 (almost black) so it's literally perfect for me :slayer:

    I've been going after rare cordovan colors and suede... In 2013 I will focus more on basics, like this one - black PTB, color 8 tassel, etc

    Question: I just received my Indys from J.Crew and I noticed the stitching was undone in one area. Was wondering is this acceptable or will present a problem once I start wearing them? See the pic below.

    The last paragraph = curious, and seemingly unprovoked.
