    From the Leffot blog.

    Shell sure is a stunning material.

    Consider the Alden for BB PTB. I have both the 990 and 9901. While I really like both, I wish I had done the color 8 in the BB version. (Sleeker last)

    Start constructing those built-ins. They're worth it!

    Speaking of which, I remodeled my home a year ago and converted a walk-in hallway closet into a shoe closet. There is no vent in there. Consequently it gets pretty hot and stuff in there. Does anyone know if that will that pose any problems for shell (or calf) in the long run??

    Thanks in advance...

    I hope It was my mentor in all things Alden mcarthur who said that properly cared for shoes can be stored in a wide range of temperature variations without undo concern. "They're shoes, not Rembrandt's".

    That's it! That's it! I'm going to get a job at j.crew after my normal job in Tampa. I love those CXL PTBs in Navy and those are going to be my next shoe. Now if only I could get them at a discount :-\

    I haven't yet received mine from Alden NY, but I believe theirs and Alden SF's have dark edge trim.

    Was curious what y'all thought. I like these navy chrmxl PTBs, but I also like the LS shortwing navy suede bluchers. Given the choice, which would you choose??
