Frank is right about Sherman Bros. and PA shopping. I live 5 minutes from Sherman Bros. and they always have their shoes cheaper in store than online. On top of that every Christmas they have an Alden trunk show sale. Which is usually 15% off their in store prices.
I don't own any light Aldens and am considering either a non-shell like the 966 or waiting to get on a ravello boot pre-order, which I know is highly unlikely.
I've never been into lighter shell but have read a few posts on here from guys who didn't understand all the hype until they owned a pair. Figured now would be the time to try to get a pair given all the rumors about shortages. And by now I mean in the next year or two.
With bright eyes and a substantial dose of realism...does anyone have any leads on a ravello pre-order? Would really love to get a captoe boot like the Unionmade Kirkwood or Day Tripper but I know this is nearly impossible.
I wore these yesterday. My camel suede PTBs are on the barrie last...
