If only cordo stayed like that. Few wears and the creases take over and make them look odd as an Oxford - my 2 cents. good to c pics after a bit of wear tho
Strict use of shoe trees definitely minimizes the "beef roll".
Among my favorites:
They look good, I like them.
C&J for RL Lindrick brown shell boot, next to their cousin, C&J for BB in burgundy shell (needs another polish)
next to the other 2 shoes currently in rotation, AE brown shell (!) Kenwood loafer, and AE black cherry PTB
it's hard to be a minimalist shell addict!
^Very nice. And Kolecho's Vass pics are always welcome.
These are gorgeous. I like the wide tongue too. I've been thinking of getting balmoral boots, but these make me consider switching to blutcher boots. They're probably much easier on/off. Are they the 80184b?
How high are they if you don't mind measuring? And how did you size them? Would you be able to compare their sizes to Alden, C&J, or AS? Is this the Robert last or another? The website doesn't seem to list the Robert, but that seemed to be the igent's preferred round toe from Carmina.
Somehow I missed these: very interesting toe treatment. Do you have a pair?
Breaking in a pair of black shell Rider balmoral boots. Metal eyelets all the way up. This boot is sleek, has a great glow in the fall/winter sun. Will post pics eventually
^ looking forward to it
Some Vass bordeaux and saddle shells before they hit the pavement.
I'll play, but my shell collection is mostly AE at this point...
Finally, AE's brown shell strands vs RL Marlow PTB:
No, they are RL Lindricks
fine, fine. ill hold off until the next promotion
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
Nice collection. Get yourself the Cambridge and then you have the whole set!
I think AE does the classic shell models very well. I just wish they would set the toe medallion further back for the MacNeil.
