    I appreciate your explanation of the process. I guess I have been lucky over the years: I have never run into this despite seeing and owning a number of pair of color 8 cordovan shoes. Running dye or discoloration, the process in this instance lead to a notable result in this particular pair of shoes.

    [/quote Thanks to all for the responses. I really appreciate it! I may go with the suede chukka for more casual wear, but I really like the Cooney. I don't think my feet will get too cold in the unlined chukka with some warm socks, since it rarely gets real cold in SC.

    I have #1 and #3 on order with Epaulet right now. Once these come in I probably won't be ordering any more rare shell from Alden.

    My first two Alden shell purchases were the Ravello Wingtip boot and the Cigar LWB both from TSM.

    I also have the Allen Edmond Chukka (Dundee) in cappuccino shell that is in between ravello and cigar

    All of these shoes get plenty of wear!

    Those are some sharp saddles. These are ours and we have some on sale.

    Interesting plan. The Naval boot looks pretty nice, but I think I prefer the J Crew boot as is. However, with all of the color 8 that I have, it might be nice to have one with the antique edge.

    I really dig the naval boot. I hope to get my feet on a pair, soon. I'd wear them for strictly casual with denim and I'd use my 4060 cap toes for less casual dress.

    If I could get it in a C width, I'd be all over the Color 8 Naval. Would wear with Thick Wale Cords, Wool Flannel Slacks, or maybe jeans, but not the skinny kind.

    I kick myself everyday knowing that a year ago TSM had ravello wingtip boots readily available for a good while in my size, and I never ordered them! Well done my friend!!

    Nice MrDV! These are my favorite seude Alden make-ups. I am wearing snuff saddles (pardon the non-Alden shoes) and red/white/blue argyles for last night's victory and in remembrance of 9-11-01... (tough to go through this each year, remember it like it was yesterday [​IMG])

    (RL, made in Italy but not sure who the manufacturer is)

    Nice look DonL!
