BB Suede LHS

Gents,

 

Is it true that B. nelson does not use alden lasts when performing restoration and it could influence the overall fit?

If so, is it negligible change?

 

Anyone with experiences could enlighten me? 

 

Thanks

There is still NO update on Ravello. Alden still doesn't have the leather to even confirm any orders.


My pair is in the mail, cant wait.

 

then I just need to find a pair of jcrew ravellos and I'll be done

Interesting that the LWBs are ready now and the WT Boots are still a couple of months out.

It is my understanding that nobody outside of Middleborough gets access to the original lasts. I have read somewhere that B. Nelson has done a lot of work on Alden shoes and boots and have lasts that approximate Alden's original lasts. I would expect little to no change in sizing if using B. Nelson, but nothing in this world is guaranteed. Suggest you contact Nick for more authoritative information.

Sadly this would likely require a time machine. :-(

But I am pretty sure you don't have to look too far to find someone to Brassvello a LWB for you. :-)
