Just ordered the chukka from Harrison. Thanks to the OP for pointing these out.

Kinda of funny we were talking about BB models of Alden shoes in comparison to Alden shoes.

I looked at BB's inventory and it doesn't seem like they're carrying some of Alden's popular makeups: long wings and chukkas in color 8.

Update: just received email that my size is sold out. Oh well, the hunt continues.

I just refreshed the page and it looks like they updated the inventory so only 4 sizes are left. That makes my decision much easier as my size is now gone as well.

I've never seen BB sell either shoe. They traditionally sell "dress shoes" when it comes to cordovan - balmorals, captoe and plain toe bluchers, full strap and tassel loafers, etc.

Union Hill Indy boots just arrived from Need Supply.  Beautiful.

 

Funny thing is that my wife, who thinks all my shoes look the same mentioned that she thought the heel (270 welt) looks a bit "feminine" compared to the Epaulet Milkshake boots I recently sold (360 welt).  I was surprised she noticed the welt difference at all.

 

Thoughts on the 270 vs 360 on the Indy boot?  I suppose there has to be a reason why Alden usually goes 270 it on this model...

BB(Black Fleece) did a run of the black shell LWB on the grant last several years ago.  I thought they were nice, but not sure I prefer them to the barrie-lasted stock model.

I don't know if I would call the 270º "feminine, but I can see the 360º welt as being more rugged so I can see where your wife is coming from. Personally, I prefer the look of the 270 in most instances.

IME women do this as a subtle way of making you rethink the purchase and return the item -- without telling you to do so.

 

I think that boot is beautiful and the rest of the design is very masculine.

Ravello PTB today.

Sidenote: There's an interesting article today on CNN ("Pajamas in Public") about the acceptance of sloppy dressing in public that has grown in the US. It deals mainly with clothing, but I think it can easily be extended to men's footwear.

Look sharp gentlemen ( I know you all do!)

Those Ravellos definitely look lighter than the chukkas I recently returned.

It's the good ol' red ravello.

On a sidenote, I found myself worrying that the new cigar ct boots from DC will be so dark that they'll be difficult to tell apart from color 8. Then I remembered that they lighten with age and sun exposure. If they turn out too dark (for me) I'll just set them by a window until I like the results.

I know, first world problems.

This is from the Spring 2011 Ravello harvest. Horses must have been fed a lighter fare in those days. Get it, lighter?
Ah, forget it.

They sure do.  Looking forward to getting mine.  And yeah--I don't think I'll be stripping them after all....
