    Hello Everyone, Thank you for your help in advance! I'm a long-time reader (introduced by my twin brother) and first-time member/poster. My twin and I always like to check thrift shops out when we have the time, and recently came across a pair of brand new Barrie Shell Cordovan Bluchers with...

    Hello, please consider my listing: Alden 990 Shell cordovan plain toe blucher with original box, bags, etc., size 10D. I wore these infrequently and maintained them well. Asking $550, free shipping CONUS. Thank you, DRM

    For sale: Alden Cigar Shell Cordovan Chukkas, Barrie last, size 9E. Purchased new by me, pretty much on a whim, in December 2009 when I was in the Alden DC store and found them to be available. Worn sparingly as I never really warmed up to them and they dropped out of my rotation. Finish is...

    I have an amazing pair of Carmina Jumper Boots in Whiskey Shell Cordovan, these are VERY LIGHTLY used. I bought them from Leffot through their pre-owned section, and were unworn. I have worn them a total of less than 10 times, and never for a full day. Now you know the condition here is what I...

    I'm curious how the vamp area should fit for Shell cordovan shoes. When you press down vamp area, should the leather touch immediately your top of foot? I really like the multiple large rumples/folds that appear on vamp area. But i don't get that. Mine is just flat. I'm wondering if that's...

    [/URL][/IMG] Hi guys, I'm wondering if this can be fix. Perhaps fill it in with something? It's shell cordovan. Or should i just not care about it?

    Afternoon, gents! I'm seeking your informed wisdom. I just splurged on my first-ever pair of shell cordovan shoes (AE Dalton), which I still haven't worn beyond trying on indoors. I've spent hours reading various threads here and elsewhere on shell care. I want to protect this investment from...

    I know this is stupid and ridiculous, but here goes. I bought these J&M Crown Aristocrafts online. I posted the following pictures on the Shell Game thread first, and consensus was that they were indeed shell. When I got them, I could not believe how much polish they had gooped on them. The...

    My recently purchased 10D C&J for Ralph Lauren wingtips were uncomfortably tight in the toe-box & across the vamp, but clearly were the right size. I took them to my local cobbler for a conservative stretch (I know, shell allegedly doesn't stretch), & they feel much better. My left foot is...

    I just purchased a new pair of Ralph Lauren (Edward Green) shell cordovan oxfords that have been horrendous to break in. The salesmen recommended stretching them. Has anyone done this? What do you recommend to aid in the process?

    The limited runs in whiskey, ravello, & cigar seem to sell out immediately, so why doesn't Alden do them in regular runs? There has to be (or ought to be) a rational economic reason for their decision to stick w/ black & #8. Maybe my perspective is warped by my selection of information sources...

    I'd like to buy my 1st pair of shell cordovan shoes, preferably a plain toe blucher or monk, but I find Alden's & Allen Edmonds' standard issues pretty clunky looking. Online I've found attractive shoes made in very small batches by Alden for Alden of Carmel, J. Gilbert, Leather Soul, and...

    I have a pair of 93605 marked Florsheim Longwings. In order to bring out their full potential I (mis)used some polish removal techniques I've picked up on the internet. I used a dull knife edge to scrape out some of the excess polish and then a wet rag to try and scrub the creases. Once I used...
  15. Timeless Style
    I just received the bargain shoes I got on the Bay (see the description and photos here if you like: ). They are wingtips in burgundy, five eyelet, a model called Concord -- yes, I see that the name was used for something else later, now also discontinued. Anyhow, in addition to the size and...
