Awesome - I'm sold.  I wore them for the first time for a full day, and I'm really liking these things a lot.  Never knew how comfortable a boot was!

when everyone goes out to lunch, i sneak into the bathroom, and I, (gulp), I look down at my feet and pretend im wearing the leathersoul x alden color 8 wingtip boot in reserve welt antique edge trim, all metal eyelets, double leather. it gives me a momentary tingle and sensation in mah toes

These are really not that exotic of a make-up. Wonder why Alden wouldn't do another 18-24 unit run of these for LS. shog[1].gif

thanks for posting these. Top notch.

Nice - unlined CXL dovers if I'm not mistaken? My first shoe from Alden and one that started my obsession. The Dover makeup is my favorite - I have it in brown CXL, 3 types of suede (Snuff, Navy, Tan), and recently got the Color 8 version unlined from Leffot. Enjoy!

Thanks!  Yes, unlined CXL. So comfy.  Color 8 huh?  I'll have to check those out.

I am suspecting that it was an order submission and not a confirmation. But not sure. As far as I know, all Ravello runs that were from the last batch of Shell are done.

Looking good today in your Brownvello PTBs. Your slacks are rad as well of course. Nice to see you circling around here again.

Pretty hard to frown about shoes when wearing a Ravello NST Boot or Shoe. Awesome of course.

Call Mike and see if they have material and can make you a pair. I get most stock models that way even if they don't have my size in stock.

I will not be showing these to the wife.

Leffot cigar Indys on left, TSM cigar Indys on right.

 

Wow.  I own the TSM version and love them.  I never would have thought about another Cigar Indy, but when you put them next to each other it really makes me think!  Nice work - the Leffot version is killer.  I love the aesthetics of all eyelets, but the hooks are so much more practical.

Dope!  I'm excited for the ones I have coming from epaulet (brass hardware), but I'm thinking of selling off that preorder spot and going with these.  I think snuff suede might be the one makeup that I like a dark eyelet better.

These are phenomenal.  Are these from this past winter?  The shade looks great and you wear them well!

I think these will look great with casual wear and also dressed up in a suit. What do you think? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



 

 

Great choice!  They're a classic boot... they work formal or casual.  The commando sole is durable and will be good all year long.  That looks like a nice shade of Color 8 too.

 

Enjoy!!

The Cigar LWB were delivered a month ago. Not sure on the rest. No ravello coming in for them (or anyone it seems) until well into 2016.

Got my Innnsbrucks today!

Looks like they tried to cover up a long scuff during welting with some polish as its visible and has a different feel to it. Might try to work it out.

Lovely dovers, I assume they are from Kathy in DC... I know she does them on dark edging...

Congrats on them! They look very nice. I am sure that you will figure out the scuff. But they are Indy boots, right?
