Ravello is nice but too close to these J Crews to be worth the extra. These are $470.: http://www.jcrew.com/browse/popup_si...olor=undefined http://www.jcrew.com/mens_feature/we...lden/18582.jsp The Ravello is like $670.
Color 8 is more appealing and classy/classic IMO. If you have no Cordovan, it's the first must have Cordovan over all else. I would not even consider a longwing Cordovan in another lower brand, they are not the same quality and are not even the original Alden Color 8, which is special and unique to Alden.
