    Fine looking combination, Uncle. Love the liquid-like shine. Wear in great health, your captoe boots.

    I was there yesterday and saw a couple of shell tassel wingtip models on sale but doubt they have many sizes available. Doubt you will find any shell on sale with as much demand as there is for them. It's hard to find shell in many sizes to begin with. Happy hunting...

    Even within AE burgundy shell there is variation.

    I believe they had a few shell models on sale when I was there a couple weeks ago. Sorry, I can't remember which.

    The other thing to consider is that the corkbed may have already conformed to the original owner's foot. In this case, you'll probably would want to have the resole done because the shoe will feel funny if not uncomfortable. My point is that you have to be ready either way for the possibility of paying for a resole job.

    luckily my bastard child pair of modified last captoe #8s that got passed around on here, finally landing with me, had similar owners feet as mine. no corkbed issues [​IMG]

    I have little use for a black shoe, let alone one with the price of black shell, but I would be down for that boot.

    The MacNeil is brown though right? Do you own both MacNeil and Alden's LWB on Barrie, do you have any strong preference for one or another?

    A prince indeed (and at the top of my wish list). The purple socks really makes it pop. Nice combo.
