8.5D

If you decide to unload them, please let me know.

shocked to see the Ravello and Truffle so close to one another. My Ravello and Truffle are pretty far apart from one another. Interesting variety batch to batch

I was expecting a shipment of Ravello LWB and suspected the color was going to be very close. I know a lot of people mentioned AE walnut shell being close to Ravello but it's got nothing on this. It's now going to be very hard to justify keeping both, and the blucher works much better for my wardrobe.

+1 for Alden. Much more versatile for me as well.

Tuffle McAllister = shortwing, bal, more dressed up  

 

Ravello LWB = longwing, blucher, more casual

 

Looks like totally different shoes, so you can safely keep both, at least I would.

I'm pretty sure I read here that they are the same color and AE named lighter versions Truffle to combat the color variation. I wonder if that variation, like Walnut shell, has scared AE from bringing it back as well.

I'd keep both and agree with others when they say that they are 2 totally different shoes. However I don't think I have worn my cappuccino shell McAllisters even 3 times since I've had them, but I have a lot of other similar shoes that truly are redundant.

 

ReppTiePrepster posted pictures of Ravello and the various shades that it can come in a page or so back. Cappuccino is the same way as are most all the brown shell colors. It has been exactly 2 years since AE sent me this:

 

At the time Cappuccino was the only color that I had seen so I called them and said I wanted a pair of Dundees made in Cappuccino also. She explained that the 2 are the same #1579. Brown is a fairly new shell color for AE. It was first introduced 4 years ago with the Strand. On AAAC back in 2010 Nick Horween called the color Dark Cognac. IMO there is nothing wrong with what AE calls Brown shell either. Here from the AE factory sample Dark Brown #1095 is also called Brown shell. They do tend to make it confusing.

You did outstanding, congrats on a well done one of a kind!! I agree AE would have sold a lot more of those....

Speaking of all these shell colors, is AE's dark brown and Alden Cigar much different at this point? I heard at one point Cigar had more olive-like undertones, but from the photos I see these days they almost look the same (just with Alden's finishing) or maybe a touch lighter.

You stay out of this, Ryden!

Is it just me, or has anyone else just now realized that Rydanfan is Tifosi's evil-alter ego and @mdubs is their therapist! biggrin.gif

Great make up pepper! I was also in discussion with Allison to MTO this but didn't push through as I wasn't too sure about the pinking. Seeing your MTO now makes me an idiot for not pulling the trigger. I love those.

Yeah ideally an austerity shouldn't have pinking, though I have seen many that do. However, the pinking on this shoe is rounded, not serrated so it's subtler.

Anyway, I love it, and am glad y'all do too!

Was able to see the upcoming shoe list. Lots of different loafers, including a split toe loafer on the 8 last. Interesting that they chose to release so many loafers in Fall/Winter. They also have a lot of boots coming, some 7 eyelet, and 5 eyelet open-laced boots coming. Even a 2 eyelet chukka on something called the 809 last. A 2 eyelet plain toe derby on the 97 last is also new (same last as the Macneil), and some interesting park avenue combinations with suede quarters & one with a cross cut quarters (like the new belt Cut Bank).

I also took a pic of the new Bob Chili / Dark Chili color, in comparison to the dark brown and walnut:


That Carlyle is one good looking shoe, and the depth of color in the dark chili is really something. I might actually have to pic that up it looked so good.

Lastly, a live pic of the new shoe Paul posted, the Strandmok:


AE has to start taking better pics for their website (come on Paul), cause i could barely tell that this shoe featured AE's new bleaching effect. Not my thing, but the website is not doing this shoe justice...

All the other stuff sounds cool, but why would AE replace the Kenilworth with the same shoe on a chunkier last? Two eyelet derbies are supposed to be sleek my opinion and the 97 last doesn't make sense to me. I guess I'll have to see it in person, but the 108 last or 2 last would have made more sense.

Amen, 108 last 2 eyelet derby would have been amazing...
