Great look here. Ravello gunboats are so good, dressed up or dressed down.

I did the same exact thing to my whiskey LWB. Try not sweat it. The shell will heal.

For Alden of Carmel: Watch here for any notice. Adam asked for 50% on my previous rare shell order. It was my first with him and I'm fairly regular size. I was not on any kind of list with him. Some find his communication to be a turnoff since he's terse. But the guy answers anytime you email him, and in my experience, delivered impeccable products.

Why not just call AE and...  "get [them] custom-made with a three-week turnaround for only a few dollars more than what the Alden will cost."  :rotflmao:

 

I won't quote or even spoiler alert the line that followed this one in your AE post from yesterday.  Lol...  just poking fun.  You are allowed to have both Alden and AE (as many of us here have).  :paranoia:

A solid and under-appreciated makeup my friend; very well done!  From where did you acquire these beauties?

If this is the used pair of 10D's that I passed on a week or two ago from Ebay, I am devastated C.  Sweet work my friend!!

I've never tried them DonL, but I may need to the next time I'm at an Alden dealer.  Well done my friend!

The denim and socks are nice, but the shade and edge/welt combination are perfect.  I need this pair!  Enjoy them often and in great health my friend!

Wow, they really do look different with a lighting change.  I really do need these!

Goo god those are spectacular!  Pascal just called to let me know these tankers just arrived but with black edge and welt.  I passed on them after looking at these!  Enjoy them often my friend!

I think this recent batch of Whiskey LWBs are just what I'm looking for, not too light, but not ravello.  You wear them quite well my friend!

Stapleton Shoe Co, in downtown NYC on Trinity place has closed their main store, after 40+ years. They're a seller of Alden calf and shell stock models. Shame - a real old school shoe store has closed. The building was sold and is being fit for condo use.

The front of the store had one of those deep glass showcases which provided for great window shopping. They don't make them like that anymore.

Their smaller store on Rector remains open.

Ah, yes . . . and in that same post I also said I am seeking a cigar shell LWB to go with my MacNeils.  :p  I have a pair of whiskey shell shortwing bals and a pair of ravello chukkas, so I just need something in cigar to complete the trifecta - and as it happens I have one LWB space left on my rack.

 

Hopefully my seven MacNeils will play nice with my single Alden LWB.  ;)

I work very close to Stapleton and went into their smaller location last week.. Their larger location's showcase and carpet is a real throwback.
