The past few pages are many people interested in / or listed for a Perf Cap Bal   Maybe we could join forces and all go on the same list to fill one list - not that it will go into production any sooner.

Mike,

 

These are perhaps the finest example I have ever seen of Alden Ravello.  Classic!

 

Enjoy My Friend!

Not an Alden, but I figured you guys would like to see what 5 years as a display under fluorescent lighting does to #8.

Looks like my Allen Edmonds Leeds when they were fresh out of the box. I actually think #8 looks only slightly darker than that before Alden adds it's special finishing to it. As a side note it looks like Allen Edmonds recently started darkening #8 to kind of copy Alden.

 

 

I did this experiment as I decided I wanted the 990 or Leffot Dover for my #8 PTB.

 

 

Here's what 2+ months (iirc) or so in a window will do.

 

 

 

 

 

And here they were fairly new.

Oh wow! I knew it was lighter, but didn't realize it was that much lighter. Reminds me of #4! I much prefer the purple eggplantish #8 Alden offers.

Same here Alden color #8 is fantastic, thus why I transformed those Leeds into a casual beater I could use in the winter. Worked out well.

 Exactly! I have been doing that for years and it works well if you do your research on styles and stores, speak to sales people/owners of the store, and are willing to wait a while.

For me it would be the Black shell Pitt Boot. A definite grail for me. One day I will have a pair. I have hope.

I never imagined saying this, but I have revised my opinion on Ravello boots:

Ravello wingtip boot > Ravello Daytripper

That's all for now. Nice Ravello week @mdubs.

Fantastic Mike. I am starting to really appreciate the Ravello with dark edging and welt. Provides a nice contrast IMO
