    Ah, gotcha... I didn't realize Carmina has a burgundy shell. I will have to explore some internet pics.

    Well I just purchased a pair of Black shell cordovan Indy boots form Zr0e in the classifieds.
    this will be my 4th pair of Alden shoes but the first in cordovan. I am very excited to get a black
    pair of Indy's for those outfits my natural CXL just don't fit with.

    but now I gotta find a good deer bone...
    the one I bought direct from the UK has splinters on the end where it was cut off

    Can't think of a more appropriate occasion for black shell than a wedding. Especially your own.

    Just a suggestion: Depending on what festivities you have planned for your wedding & reception (Bunny hop, electric slide - whatever), keep in mind the Naval Boot has a double oak soul and it -- and likely any other boot you choose -- will need time to break a bit before the big day (Not trying to dissuade you - I have the Naval boot and love it).

    Good luck whatever you choose!

    I have the whiskey shortwing oxford (bal) on the tremont last. While I like it quite a bit, I don't wear it that often. I wear the heck out of my color 8 LWB. Cigar, Black, and then ravello in that order. I baby my ravellos too much. I should wear them much more often.

    Friends on the forum have pointed out at times that they go half size up on the aberdeen last. I have a few questions that I would appreciate if friends could answer.

    1. Do you go half size up from TTS or half size up from barrie which means that you just go TTS on the aberdeen?

    2. Have people had experience buying the aberdeen TTS but going to an E width instead of D?

    Appreciate your feedback.

    Yes, very painful memories. My parents sent me to a small private midwestern liberal-arts college during the Carter administration. I can hear the idolisers of Ronald Reagan who now live on a steady diet of Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and Fox News, howling at the moon with I told you so disgust and incredulity. Thank you Uncle for reminding us of the prime rate while the peanut farmer was in the Oval Office, it made the interest on my student loans laughably outrageous.
