I keep meaning to go in to brick + mortar and get sized. I'm a 13D/E so hopefully they have SOMETHING I could try on!

My first Alden's were color 8 Chukkas. Can't go wrong. Definitely one to try on though as the fit isn't an exact science IMO.

Thanks gentlemen. Really happy with these. So much so I already called Alden DC to get on a list for the ravello version.

Still only 20 and in college but still)  Any advice?  I see a lot of shell on this forum but almost never see a pair of chukka's, is there something I'm missing? 

Chukkas are great. Go for it. With pant leg down, they are nearly identical to the PTB.

It's too bad because the cordovan quality and the overall construction in regards to the stitching on these are beautiful and look flawless. 

I could live with the issues if it wasn't a stock model (only because you wouldn't have many other options lol), no point keeping these unless they offer some sort of discount on them imo, waiting to hear back via email.







Some poor finishing on the vamp of the right shoe, worst spot being up by the laces before the tongue.






IMO, return - for sure.

Agree. It is a fantastic model for exhibiting Shell Cordovan. My second model was a Color 8 Chukka just behind a Color 8 Tassel.

Did someone say that Cigar special orders are on hold? Would this include those Cigar LWB from Alden DC that were arriving in March. I would call Kathy but Alden DC is closed.

I'm waiting for Cigar LWBs as well and heard from Kathy they are months away due to the color being in very short supply (relatively speaking to exotics). They were originally meant to arrive a month ago.

Bought a pair of Cigar PTB from Wayne in Hong Kong in the mean time. Waiting for those to arrive along with Ravello LWB from AoM.

There is no ETA on any of her Cigar models, but it will be at least 16 weeks.
