    Looking great Burzan!!

    I gave my natty Dundees some TLC today. I love how much they've darkened to a nice caramel color. You can see the original color near the top of the tongue.

    Those have darkened up with a remarkable consistency. Very nice!

    Does anyone have a pair of Allen Edmonds Strands in Brown Cordovan they'd like to share with me? I am thinking of getting some but wanted advice from people who have them and would like to see a few photos. What about Park Avenue in brown???

    @TexasTexter @naspratt - I've been considering picking up a pair of brown shell Strands the next time they go on sale for $399. I usually wear 14D (give or take, depending on the last) and there often aren't any shell pairs in my size that I particularly like, but there's a brown shell Strand and a burgundy shell Dalton in my size. I've already bought a lot of shoes this year, so I don't know that I need another pair, but they both just look so good anytime I see photos of them.

    @BespokeBrooklyn, I wish I'd picked up the shell Daltons last time they were $399, I think they're absolutely gorgeous. I just need to make a plan for acquisitions going forward, and try to thin the herd a bit before I pull the trigger.

    One of my biggest regrets/disappointments is that the pair of natural shell Daltons I got on ebay (brand new) were a bit too large and I had to flip them.

    Hi folks. If anyone is looking for Tricker's shell, the Faust Store in Norway has some Teak/Tec boots and Cotto/Orange and Burgundy PTBs in stock. All selling for £390 and free shipping for most. Not sure what they are doing about VAT deduction for non-EU countries -- price was the same for me whether shipping to UK or US.

    Shop through their Facebook page, because the website is a WIP: https://www.facebook.com/fauststore/shop?rid=1062101217158577&rt=6

    Even though the website doesn't really work, you can probably use the contact info at the bottom to call them or email them.

    If you search for Tricker's on the search bar at the top of the site, you should be able to get to the product pages. If you still can't, let me know your size and I can tell you what's available.
