^ MrDV's ravello shortwing boots are probably the one pair that would allow me to retire from this addictive madness. Well done, DV!

Wow! I am not the biggest ravello fan, but these are incredible. If you could, please, you have to give us the standard line of answers: (1) what last are they, (2) where did you find them, and (3) when did you pick them up?

Thanks again for sharing these beauties.

AF53's faired much better than the epaulet trousers with the salt this morning... off to the dry cleaners!

I actually agree with this. As long as I could keep everything I already have, ha!

I actually bought the smaller "Little New York" one that was a 2nd. I can't see anything wrong with it and I'd order another one in a heartbeat!

Glad to see your wallets starting to arrive!  I've not seen mine yet but we went without mail for several days due to the ice storm in Dallas.  One of mine is also a Christmas gift.  Hopefully they arrive today!

 

See Ya,

Steve

Thanks Alcibiades.
The lindricks are great boots, I'm excited to have them. I prefer the Aldens. Alden's finish is better. Aldens do not dry like the lindricks. aldens also feel like thicker shell, sturdier somehow, better protected. Aldens shine better w less effort. I also didn't see better craftsmanship or better color matching w lindricks when comparing them to alden.
I really really like the lindricks, but I would sell them if I could buy plaza (or Barrie) cigar sw boots.

There are DIY instructions out there for the brave or you can have some one do it.
It's relatively simple, just sand off old finish, put on new.
Keep in mind the welt will still be dark. If you want that changed out it's more or less the same amount of work as a resole.

These, to me, continue to be the key differentiators between Alden shell and other shell models I see. I own Marlows and they are much tougher to shine than most Alden shoes and don't keep their shine as much. Even Alden's black shell looks more lush than other competitors.

Curious to see how Carminas compete on this scale.

Thank you.
I have made similar comments in the past regarding shoes and boots. They turned out not to be true.

Thanks for the kind words.
They're on the Barrie. I bought them a little over a year ago unworn from another sf member. He bought them from the shoe mart.
