Killing it! I don't know if you've mentioned it before, but I'd love details on the coat and pants. That's an awesome combo. The ravello pairs so well with the pants and jacket.

I'd say "Go Braves," but they may not have much of a chance given LA's strong pitching staff...

Very nice. I like that all your boots look like they are actually worn, but they look beautiful and the wear enhances their look.

Tankers are vernacular for boots with the open lacing norwegian handsewn front.  Many of the make-ups of this boot are put on the barrie last.  Some (like J Gilbert) have it made on the plaza last.  I think I may have seen the boot on aberdeen last somewhere - aberdeen is the last that the Alden stock NSF shoe is built on --  but I am not sure about that. 

 

Citishoes has its NSF make-ups -- shoes and boots -- made on the Barrie last.

 



There is a member selling the tanker on the plaza. In my size. Looks good... tempted.

Cigars in the office. And I might add "Go Braves". Sazon like the socks in your last pic, what brand?

RTP:I'm certain that many of us here own AE shell models. I have a new pair of walnut shell daltons, and the smell of the shell is very powerful even after about one month. It is similar to the scent of Alden shell, but distinctly different. I like the smell but it is very strong. Anyone here have the same experience??

I own various AE shells. The smell is slightly different when compared to Alden shells; however, in my experience, Aldens have a more powerful smell.

I've heard that Alden will not change soles for recrafting. Is that true? I have a pair of Aldens with a single leather sole that could use attention, but I would prefer them recrafted with a double leather sole. Will Alden accommodate me? Or is there another place I should send them?

Alden no longer customizes restoration orders. Most will say to go to B. Nelson if you don't have a trusted local cobbler.

Yes please! Great shoe upper/last/material is spot on.

quick pic showing the shades of ravello. the releases a couple weeks ago (the LWB and PTB) are definitely on the dark side. almost negates me needing to get the cigar LWB

This is an interesting decision... I considered selling my color 8 w antique edge longwings to fund a 975 purchase because my color 8 / alpine grain saddles picked up all my "novelty" color 8 wear and I felt I should have at least one color 8 longwing. However, with 990s in hand from eBay, I find less need for the 975. Makes it more likely I keep my antiqued color 8s...
