    I can't stop looking at these. Both are amazing but the shell is indistinguishable from new. Congrats MrDV, nice pickup.

    I dare say there is no other cobbler that could have restored those color 8 nst's to make them look that good. Very nicely done, on both counts.

    If you hit J. press, make sure you stop across the street at the Andover Shop. They don't have shoes, but Charlie puts together the best collection of preppy goodness around. The shopkeeps also have the worst attitudes in menswear. If you happen to get thrown out, please report back with any amusing stories.

    thanks everyone for the kind words. i am very happy with the results and will be using their services in the future.
    i would send a vintage pair of bb #8 sw tomorrow, but i really like the aged color they have. i wish they offered to reshape and resole but not refinish the color.

    i would agree with sevenfoldtieguy, they are the best crew for the project.
    thanks for pointing out the newer non shell models zippyh.

    Just use BNelson if you don't want the uppers refinished. :nodding:

    I destroyed a pair of modified captoe #8s this weekend in miami. I havent even taking them out of my luggage cause I'm afraid to survey the damage.

    what's alden charge for e refurb [​IMG]? I may just send in for a resole and get the uppers restored cause I for sure beat the piss out of them

    Anyone found themselves having to go a half size up on the brannock size for the Aberdeen last? Trying to figure out if a pair slightly bigger than my usual would fit.

    I remember reading this somewhere, but can't confirm. I want to say $17 per hole, therefore $34 for a pair?

    That's outstanding. i have the same shoe, and they have been looking scuffed and tired. Now I know what I am doing. Thanks for the idea.
