Congrats! That is awesome! I pre-ordered a pair as well. It was my first purchase from Leffot. I got an abnormal size so I had to pay in full.

But I am also not the type who gets sucked into hype. Unlike some in this thread, when I walk down the street wearing on my Aldens, I don't think about how I have Aldens on my feet every other second while simultaneously trying to hold in my joy and smile due to me knowing I am a person of greater caliber than Isaac Newton for the simple fact my feet are enclosed by glorious Alden shoes.

 

I am done in this thread. I am taking my ball and going home.

 

enjoy your time in other parts of styleforum. while I didn't really pay attention to any of your posts, or the subsequent backlash, I wish you well

I wish I could confidently say these would fit me... I'd grab them to try and confirm, then flip if it was a no go..

 

Will watch the auction.. could pull an impulsive trigger at them to see if they work with my feet

The BB PTB is a bit of tweener.  I go tts with them.  If you're barrie size is 11.5D, they may be too snug.  Good luck, it's worth a try...

To get things back on track - here is a comparison of the Cigar Cap Toes and the recent LWB, the color is pretty consistent across the two lots

Congratulations, the colors look amazing.

Wow, Ravello SWB? Never seen one before this.

Can you wear the cigar LWB pretty much for any outfit you can wear the color 8 LWB ? They seem super close in color, at least starting out.

Hi friends!

 

Sorry for noob question/potentially protruding on thread etiquette but;

 

I really really want a pair of either Ravello or Cigar LWBs. Which webstores should I check every day if I want to be able to snatch one of these some day? I am not local to any physical stores (but I know my size).

 

Thanks in advance

never really see them pop up on web stores (a long time ago fransboone had cigar, but I believe they are long sold off their site)

 

best bet is to call the alden stores (dc, ny, sf) and get on a preorder list.

Ahh okay! Thank you.

I wanted to share some pictures of my black alpine grain LWB that I received from Alden of Carmel yesterday. My Alden purchases have almost exclusively been shell so this pair of alpine grain is expanding my horizons a bit. I really like the pebble grain texture.


I don't wear black shoes that often but this is really making me want to get another pair.

The 11.5D in the BB PTB runs TTS. MUCH MORE SLEEK than the 990 but still able to fit me, who wears a Barrie 11.5D. They fit closer to the Jcrew PCT boot in #8 Shell than anything to be honest.

LS has had a couple of runs of Ravello SWB a while back.  Had my chance and blew it... my biggest Alden regret.

 

I have both the cigar and color 8 LWB.  They are very different mainly because of the antique welt/edge on the cigar.  It is inherently more casual.  Also, my cigar LWB are much lighter than my color 8.  They are almost the same shade as the recent ravello ptb run from Alden SF.
