I guess my question is: how will darker ravello age?  Will it darken or lighten over time?

Ravello is definitely my favorite rare shell color, and this make-up looks great.

Very nice. They are getting close to cigar, but I'm sure the reddish tint pops more in natural light.

I actually didn't stop in B. Nelson because I went to the Alden store on madison and ended up in there for a bit too long and needed to be at work after that.

 

I was looking for the 990 on commando sole and had called earlier in the week looking for a 9.5D but they said they were sold out in that size and would probably be recieving more by early summer. Someone on this forum told me that J. Gilbert was getting a shipment in around March so I called them to confirm and was going to do a pre order. But when I popped into the Alden store today to see if a size 9 would fit they  said they found a  size 9.5 in the back also (they seemed a bit disorganized).

 

Long story short...The guy who helped me out brought out both the 9D and 9.5D. After trying both on the size 9 seemed to fit better especially when tried with a thinner sock which they had on hand. Was happy I ended up buying them in person because I was ready to order the 9.5 from J. Gilbert. ( I have 2 other Aldens on the barrie last size 9.5). The guy who helped me said even though they are the same last depending on the shoe some fit a bit different.

 

 

 

With shoes that nice, you really should be drinking higher end vino :cheers:

It is definitely the angle of the photo. When taken from the vantage point of the wearer --so looking down at the cap-- it has the true plaza shape: curved, with a little squareness. I would post pics, but I don't think I could do them as much justice compared to some of the other folks who have posted.

Uncle, very cool looking patina on your cigars.  I like the slight variations in shade of cigar on your straight tips.

Rightfully so! I'd love a pair of those! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I'd say its between the 975, 990 and 563. My vote would probably be the 990 for the quintessential Alden model. All are good answers.

If I could own just one, it would be the 990 going away.

Can someone tell me the number to Alden DC or provide me with Kathy's email address? I tried calling the only number I could find for Alden DC and it looks like the number is no longer in service. Thanks!
