I know what you mean. I have one pair of Alden shell, #8 PTB that's about 2 months old. Every time I see another pair of LWB posted on this thread it nudges me ever so closer to picking up a pair... so after a few weeks, I ordered a pair of #8 LWB from Shoemart last week. With any luck, should be here by Friday. biggrin.gif

Wow, some greats pics in the last hour or so.  The natty CXL boots from Leffot and the LWBs are beautiful.  And that shot of the #8 boots -- are those the JCrew (I am hoping they are, as I'm eagerly awaiting mine)?? -- fantastic!

For viewing fun LHS in color #8 and whiskey:

Cheers.

I think they look great, I hope to steal your idea one day.

Black shell is very sharp. I wear black overcoats and sweaters in the fall and winter; black shell goes great with those. I also just got some grey herringbone pants that black will go great with as well. Black shell stands up to raw denim well and obviously works with charcoal suit pants. Honestly it is essential. A black longwing is in my future.

The J Crew cadet has gotten poor reviews, but the photo posted above changed my mind. It is just a shoe version of a Barrie captoe boot and goes great with more casual options.

^ Which black LWB are you going to purchase?  Standard 9751?  Just pulled the trigger on a pair myself.  I figured that I already own it in every color except #4, so why not.

 

My first black shell outside of the black PTB by BB.

Finally received my Whiskey PTBs from Kathy at Alden DC, what a wonderful shoe! The color is just perfect. I took some pictures to compare them with my new Ravello chukkas (new batch from Alden NY) and 2 year old Whiskey Tankers. It's interesting to see that my patina'd tankers look more Ravello than Whiskey now.

^ jkiu - awesome Whiskey color on the PTBs. Congratulations. Enjoy wearing them.

 

Quick question/ poll for all you Alden fanatics:  For a first Ravello shoe, which is better, Chukka or LHS?  

PS- I already have a Whiskey LHS, so I am torn whether to complement that shoe or branch out.  

 

Thanks. Cheers.

It's sad that whiskey tankers may not even get made again, because those are awesome. Tanker boots are one of Alden's best models.

Smoothie, if you already have a whiskey LSH, a ravello chukka is a pretty easy call IMO

Very nice family photo! Congrats on the whiskey PTB score. As long as I've been cherishing Alden's I've never had a shot at any rare color boot, except chukkas. I hope to score a whiskey or ravello pair some day, even cigar would be great! Until then... I will enjoy seeing other members photos!

See Ya,
Steve
