l - r: Alden #8 Captoe, Alden #8 Wingtip (#974), Duckie Brown "Scotch Cordovan", C&J for RL PTB

The Wingtip is really light. The 974 is listed as a #8 but time has aged this shoe very well. It resembles #4 more than other shells satisfied.gif

All of this talk in regards to Ravello is making me so anxious to get my pair! I pre-ordered the Brixton from Epaulet in Jan., suppose to be coming in in the upcoming weeks.

I'm wearing my #8 captoes now and I'm growing to like them. When I first bought them, they were nearly black...darker hue of #8 for sure. After a few wears, they have lightened up quite a bit. Now it actually looks brownish.

So many different choices! I'm looking for a pair of Ravello cap toe boots similar (well, exactly would be awesome too!) to

Any idea where I can go? Thanks

NAMOR, your faded 974s are crazy. They look like ravello at this point. Folks were pretty excited about LeatherSoul's recent shortwing blucher release but, aside from the beauty of the antique trim, they can't hold a candle to the 974. They were my first pair of Aldens and still my go-to pair. They work with everything. Mine are about 4 years old and are just starting to go from eggplant to brown:

If you want a shell loafer and can't fit in the Van, you should check out the C&J Harvard. They are very nice.

Thanks, I have a high arch so this could be problematic

Leffot has almost identical ones coming in soon. Only difference is they are on the Grant last instead of Barrie.
