Yeah, they used Mahogany shell for a while, until 2004 or so. I am not sure of the exact timing, but it seems that it was mostly replaced by Ravello. This particular pair is from 1996.

 

Alden made a few models in Mahogany shell. Adam did a few makeups with it (AF1 Whiskey/Mahogany saddle moc stitch blucher, AF2 wingtip bal), and I've seen a few others floating around (LHS, Straight-Tip Blucher, LWB).

Is Ravello permanently retired at this point? When was the last run?

Yes, when can the plebs have a share of the riches? I demand an answer from the Mayor!

The last Ravello run was early 2015.

Solid find there my friend. I was hoping to see this closer to my year end bonus but I knew I could count on this thread to hunt down a pair :)

There's a host of other black leathers that Alden will make such a boot out of. I know this thread is rather cordovan-centric, but Calf, Chromexcel, Suede, Kudu, Walkabout, and grain leathers are all options!

Feeling like shell today. Still my only shell pair but I love them. Alden x J Crew cap toe boot
