    To be honest same here. I can't wait to see what they look like in person. I can see this looking great with an antique edgetrim too - you guys think my cobbler should be able to do something about it? They're very simple but I think it'd make for a good "dress shoe" too.

    OMG! I knew I wasn't the only one. Audeze LCD-3 thru a Woo Audio WA-7 for me. Alden shell cordovan is much cheaper, and you can leave the house with them.

    After all of these years wearing Aldens, I have finally found a comfortable pair on the Aberdeen last. Feels good.

    No preset filter, just "trademark" adjustment sequence that I've taken to enjoy.

    So, no, it's not a natural, unadjusted image.

    It really just depends on your individual foot. It's enough to make a difference for me, but I'm right on the edge of sizes.

    Weird... try a different computer -wireless network? All the prices are the same for me, Shell LWB is still 660ish.

    8.5D in the Cadet has not been canceled by me - so you 8.5 fellas can kop. I just purchased some other shoes today so I'm gonna let these slide by haha.

    I have to agree. I own a black shell LHS and a black shell longwing (which I am selling bc of a sizing issue) and I love both of them. The black shell longwing is a cool option too bc it can dress up for work, and then you can swap out the laces with more colorful ones to make them more casual. Really a great option.

    Are you on the site in the USA? Those prices are all 1.25x the price it shows me... plus mine has the dollar symbol instead of "USD"

    Personally don't like them at all... But they are still up for pennies.
