Does anyone know when Alden NYC's (Madison Ave) once-a-year sale kicks in and what the discounts are?

This is surely not on all models, right? If so, I would venture that people would just save up for the sale and go nuts instead of paying retail.

Two more great pairs. How would you rate the versatility of the Ravello PTB's? I feel they would not get much wear, which is odd because I believe my ravello longwings are very versatile.

(aberdeen last captoe bals in whiskey shell -- my favourite shoe in my collection)
These look great. I agree about the lighter whiskey. These look almost to be ravello.

I like ravello much more than usual whiskey ... I really like the alden PTB design and I have them in #8/cigar/ravello/scotch grain and wear them a LOT. Ravello PTBs go really well with khakis (which is what I wear mostly) and they also go well with selvage denim. I wore my ravello PTB and LWB alteast once a week this summer, and they looked great.

I'd say cigar>ravello in terms of versatality though. The PTBs are great for displaying the beauty of shell!

Don't forget about the shoes mart factory seconds. I have purchased two from them now and the "mistakes" were minor scuffing on both. You can just return them if they're unacceptable. I got my pair of two stroke indys there for $300 delivered. (It's also awesome to see the vendor exclusives wind up there.)

More info on these 2nds please? How/when are they available?

Just got my first pair of Aldens. I got the Indy 405, as I figure thatd be a good start. Sadly no pics, yet, but so far Im enjoying the boot, and breaking them in.

i think ravello goes better with more of my wardrobe than cigar. looks good with raw and washed denim, khakis and different colored cotton pants IMO. i agree with you about PTBs being a great canvas to showcase shell characteristics

I think cigar is an all-year color ... which is why I gave it the higher rank. But we are nitpicking here - all alden shell colors are great!

well hey, "which of my $600 shoes looks the best?" is a great problem to have and discuss
