Congrats to all who got in on this.

I'm still amazed that Alden NYC quotes me 3-4 months ETA for the Ravello WT boot when I ask for an update.

Eager to see whether I'll keep the boot or the Ravello LWB I got from DC.

Pretty interesting to me that a SW boot on commando and a LWB would occupy the same space in your rotation!

And going to my preferences...

LWB - Ravello
PTB - Whiskey or snuff suede
LHS - Cigar? Not a huge loafer fan
PTB - Black
CT Boot - #8 (Leffot's Naval) or Cigar (#4, too, but it doesn't count because it'll never be available again)
WT Boot - Ravello
Indy - Natural CXL (I haven't seen enough rare shell versions)
NST boot - Leffot's #8 and all three rare shells seem incredible
Chukka - Ravello or snuff suede

Hah, me too! I'm trying to keep one style per shade of boot/shoe. With few exceptions.

Already have a whiskey-esque tall boot from another making coming, so that scratched the whiskey boot fix. I think biggrin.gif

Damn, beat me to it!

Is the whiskey WTB on commando like the Ravello?

Smart man.

Love those Hallecks! I'm still so torn on the antique edge. It looks so good, but I know I'd rather own dark edge. They look great, NY!

For those interested in "Dr Jones" boots, just heard from Frans Boone that they're re-stocking them. They have submitted the order to Alden but it hasn't been confirmed yet (but will be pretty soon according to FB). Not possible to get on any list, they'll only do pre-orders online, the Leffot way. Estimated delivery in September this year.

I've seen reference to the Dr Jones boot on here but not sure what it is. Is this the Indy boot on plaza last?

Yes. I'm still excited about the Ravello boots but I need some variety in colors. So I figured it was worth a shot.

Thanks tif! I go back and forth myself between which edge I prefer. This is my only #8 with antique so for me it fills a void. I think antique edge also suits some models better than others. The contrast can be a little jarring at times.

Just a hurry up and wait situation as usual. The next update will be a call from Kathy asking if you still want them.

My prediction. Late April, early May. However I'm not holding out hope I'll make this order.

Damn, you got me excited. With the Euro so low I check almost daily for a restock. But I believe they raised their Cordovan prices as well. Can't remember what it was, but sure it was less. May have just been the across the board Alden raise.

Hopefully it will be confirmed soon.

That's just perfect NY. My Brixtons are on the truck for delivery today fresh from an Alden recraft. If they look anything like your Hallecks, I will be thrilled.

I noticed that as well. Prices went up around 20 euro for shoes, 40 for boots.
