There have been 20 times more Ravello out there than Scotchgrain color 8.

One of my grail shoes/boots.

I believe he used color 8 here as only a color (eggplant). They do not look like shell cordovan to me.

That's still always weird  discussion, "cordovan is a thing and not a color"  people don't want to accept that outside of styleforum.

The usual ptb in #8 is the 990 style (second pic). But the model made for Thebureau seems to have different soles. Is it possible to get those without an MTO ?

 

post #69818 of 122416
Just looks like a different edge trim color to me.

Unfortunately there us no such thing as an Alden MTO...

I meant buying from a shop who ordered shoes with special specifications (like alden for Leffot, the bureau, Jcrew, epaulet, etc..).

 

And yes it may be just an antique edge trim.

Looks like antique trim to me as well. Unfortunately, as you mentioned, you'd have to call around to see if anyone has that specific make up.

If you're able to find the style number you can call Alden and ask for the names of vendors who've made that style. To make it a little more difficult, however, I think the same Antiqued Color 8 PTB would have a different style number if built on a double water lock sole as opposed to regular double leather, etc.

 

Leffot recently made a version with an antique welt on a crepe sole....

yea, that is right: a color 8 plain toe blucher with double leather sole and antique edging would have a different style number than a shoe that is otherwise identical specs except the sole was double or single waterlock.

yea there are many possible combinations. I guess that for unlined versions the style number is different too?

 

Anyway what guys do you prefer between the classic look - dark trim with a dark color such as #8 - and the new trend with the antique trim?

Both have their place, but if I had to choose one, it would be dark trim

Depends entirely on each model and how you plan to wear it. Love the antique trim on my new tankers but prefer my JCrew Captoe boots with dark trim. Could I be happy swapping the trim on those? Absolutely, but given that option I wouldn't do it.
