That's a sexy shoe. The depth of color looks like the Alden of old, not the opaque shell we've seen lately.

Awesome stuff.

Definitely glad I ordered without thinking about it......just pull the trigger when given the opportunity.

I was expecting them to be darker / more reddish color but the lighter shade will work very well with my typical work attire.

I will be starting the Mac break-in method ASAP!

Thanks, guess I have to wait until Sat to find out. Hoping for barrie

NST's look great.  They sure look like Aberdeen to me.

Looks like it's a #8 captoe boot day. Here are mine from Alden of DC with commando sole and all their creasing on an overcast day in San Francisco...

Very nice, Don L.

Also, I'm guessing they're Aberdeen too. The email from TSM indicates that the Ravello NSTs are on Aberdeen and the Whiskey ones are Barrie. It's a shame as I'd love a pair of the Ravello, but I'm pretty sure they wouldn't work size-wise. It's an interesting thought that these may be NOS. The color certainly looks like it.

I actually asked Ed at TSM that exact question almost verbatum, and didnt get a real answer... 

He basically said "There weren't that many..."

I also wondered if they were new old stock (seconds).

My God, you guys have seriously brought it today with the King LWBs, the absoluely gorgeous ravello NST, king cap toe boots, etc... there is some serious game possessed by this thread, esp when you throw in the watch collections!

 

Today I went with what has become one of my favorite go-to casual shoes, Snuff LWBs + J Crew argyles.  (However, I am itching to wear some shell this weekend... this thread is inspiring!)

Thanks for the picture. Your shoes are awesome. I hope everyone (including myself) gets what they ordered.
