Ok you modern day Alden enablers....

 

I really think I should pick these up from Leffot.com:

I love the Barrie Last, I love the Saddle Shoe...this is one awesome makeup for my tastes. I could use a LWB but these are too sweet.

This may be the best black shell make-up I've seen...  very jealous!

I'm with you Sazon!  The 9016 (Black Shell) is the very next pair of Aldens on my queue!

Those appear to have photographed very well.  Gorgeous.

Thanks much appreciated.  I would like to upgrade my photography know how, at the moment all I have is the camera on my phone and my attempts at trying to get decent lighting.  Some of the other guys on here take some great photos for sure.

I agree. Great looking shoes! Who does this make-up? I've seen something similar in a blucher but not an oxford.

Thanks for the heads up Shoulda! Called and got put on the list 3rd in line for the Cigar Cap Toe Boot, so hopefully I have a shot of getting these as well. Kathy also mentioned that there's a spot the Ravello Plaza Medallions you speak of in an 8.5 as someone has dropped out. Thank god it was too big for me. This Alden habit is breaking my already light bank.

Hope you're right wrong at least for the short term future. Need some saving and recovery time!

I have one pair of black cordovan boots and one pair of black calf wingtips. I wear my shell boots maybe once every 2 or 3 weeks. The wingtips even less. I don't have a great need for black shoes, but I absolutely love my black shell boots. I post them here every time I wear them hoping black shell will get more and more love on here.

I wear my black shell weekly.

Thank you! I am hoping to see Tom do another run of them, as I really want to get them in Color 8 as well. Its an absolutely gorgeous shoe!

I REALLY appreciate you posting this.  Put the ravello beauties on hold and am going to try them on this afternoon.  This will likely be my last shell shoe purchase for a while.  Now just need the cigar and ravello cap toe boot then I'll be all set...maybe...

post #71923 of 122416
Definitely looking forward for some pics of these new Ravello medallions from Alden DC to start surfacing.

There is no such thing as "all set"... :-)

Thanks for the info about the cigar cap toe boot.

Called but I'm third on the list and they only ordered one 12D. Odds don't look good. frown.gif
