A cordovan decision...

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I recently picked up my first shell shoes: RL darlton shortwings. Love em. Now it is time for pair #2. Note: I plan to pick up a perf'ed captoe cordovan boot in the near future, probably in #8 (or Cigar if the Alden gods smile upon me). Cordovan shoe #2 will be a double leather soled blucher or chukka. Here are the candidates so far: Alden

Ravello or Cigar NST or Chukka


RL Darlton PTB Bradford

Tragically, I can only afford one. Thoughts? Suggestions? Help me decide!

If the Darlton wingtips fit well, then go with the Darlton PTB. Otherwise, I'd say the chukkas.

Where are you getting the Darlton PTB's? Thought they were discontinued.

Those split toes in a darker color (I don't know what alden calls it) are probably my favorite shoes, so I can recommend them without reservations.

None of the others looks quite as good as this one to me, but I don't own a pair so can't really recommend...

My thoughts - from your list - probably the Ravello Chukkas. Get something different than the Darlton shell cordovan. Honestly, my next choice would be off your list, probably something in #8. Alden's Number 8 (or AE's version - I have the MacNeil in burg shell) is such a versatile color, more so than cigar or ravello.
