 Is it just as wide as the standard 975? Or is it wider?  I personally prefer a more narrow welt and this is one of the reasons I sold my Ravello LWB's from Leffot.  Also, my observation is that models without a storm welt also seem more narrow just by nature of not having that extra piece of leather there. 
Do they mean a wide welt? The width on the inside of the shoe should be standardized to whatever width of the last.  The welt does look sorta wide in your pictures, however no wider than say the same shoe from Leffot. 
Speaking of the 990's, I was gonna ask, do folks here think they are redundant if I have the color 8 shell chukkas already?
Anyone know if this is "tobacco chamois?":         http://www.theshoemart.com/alden-mens-5-eyelet-plain-toe-boot-barrie-last-brown-chamois/pvc-ald-mxsbc-45182h_ald_m_5_eyelet_plain_toe_boot_barrie_last.html?fullweb=1
My thoughts on the signature Alden shell cordovan shine and why using basically no products on them is often the best choice:  
   All you will need for a long while is a horsehair brush, cotton towel and a bit of water. See: 
This is the case with the Kudu Indys. They are cow leather, rather than actual Kudu.I have no idea what chamois actually is myself though,
I haven't bought from them but they are indeed Color 8. No way Barney's would have a whiskey, ravello or cigar Alden PTB and we don't know about it here. 
[[SPOILER]]  These look great, close to my Kudu Indys, which have a full vibram sole which I really like on them. 
Thanks for your feedback. What is the care for chamois anyways? How do they do in the rain?
