Very simple. My humble contribution to Ravello Super Tuesday. Chukkas from The Shoe Mart taken without flash in natural, defused light.

I also only buy Aldens in cordovan or suede.  For regular calfskin I buy Allen Edmonds or Crockett and Jones, with a strong preference for C&J.  Wish I had some Vass, too.

thank you!

thank you!

This seems right, both C&J and AE make great shoes.

I have strongly considered Alden's burnished tan, though (which I guess is "regular calf")

Had a set of Christys put on my 8m old 405

I'm in uni, and I couldn't deal with the block heel in classrooms and libraries. Someone please tell me if this is sacrilege; I find them rather attractive.

Thx in advance.

Left: red/burgundy ravello (purchased Mayish 2011)
Middle: red/"carrot" ravello (purchased last month)
Right: Whiskey (purchased January 2012)

FWIW I've used mid tan Kiwi on the tassel loafers, have yet to wax the other two pair

Never liked the look of christies, but this turned out pretty good.

Haha. I like it. The Indy is considered a "work boot" so why not? Btw, how much did it run you?
