Dang. That looks great. I need to switch over to mine! I am using an Italian Brown Shell Wallet right now. I have the Nat Shell also and am waiting for a #2...

Does anyone have pics of boots where the speed hooks were later replaced with eyelets by a cobbler? Curious to know how it looks with the different spacing.

Edit: NVM found it! http://www.styleforum.net/t/85589/the-official-alden-thread/18000_20#post_4958968

Green with envy! I've never been to that part of the country. My folks lived down on the southern coast in the late 90's to early 00's. So my wife (gf at the time) and I would spend a few weeks with them in Sotogrande every winter. We did Seville and Cordoba (home of shell cordovan to keep it from veering too far OT). I hit the Carmina store in barcelona last year. It's absolutely worth a visit.

 

Have a great summer!

I saw a couple photos of the new ravello on here, but maybe a pic of them side by side a pair of cigars in the same lighting conditions would help me out. I want to buy both but not if the ravello has become significantly darker....

 

 

hope this helps..

 

old ravello ---> new ravello ---> new ravello LWB ---> cigar (circa '13 iirc) ---> new cigar from last month ---> old cigar (circa '12 iirc)

Thanks! I already sent my check in the mail this afternoon, but this confirms that I made the right choice (for me) in picking Ravello.

Congrats Lemmy, you made an excellent choice.

All, just observed this on TheShoeMart, but they seem to have a Cigar LWB listed on their site in 11D if anyone is interested and that is their size.

http://www.theshoemart.com/alden-mens_long_wing_blucher_shell_cordovan_color_8/pv-ald-975_ald_m_long_wing_blucher_shell_cordovan.html

They also appear to have a Ravello LHS in 10B and a Cigar LHS in 10.5D and 11D.

Hey kwhite, can you or anyone else confirm Adam's email? Just wanted to be cautious/double check because it seemed a little odd that he wouldn't accept credit card and only accepted a mailed-in money order or a wire transfer. Thanks guys!

Coincidentally, I received this email from Adam today:

 

 Dear Sir, SEEKING YOUR IMMEDIATE ASSISTANCE. Please permit me to make your acquaintance in so informal a manner. This is necessitated by my urgent need to reach a dependable and trust wordy foreign partner. This request may seem strange and unsolicited but I will crave your indulgence and pray that you view it seriously. My name is ADAM of ALDEN-of-CARMEL and One of the close aides to the former President of the Republic of ALDEN. Due to the sartorial campaign, I and some of my colleagues were instructed by the President to go abroad to purchase shoes and boots worth of Twenty Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars only (US$20,500,000.00) to fight the rebel group. Thus, if you are willing to assist us move this fund out of Carmel, you can contact me through my email address above with your telephone, fax number and personal information to enable us discuss the modalities and what will be your share (percentage) for assisting us. I must use this opportunity and medium to implore You to exercise the utmost indulgence to keep this Matter extraordinarily confidential, Whatever your Decision, while I await your prompt response.

Thank you and God Bless. Best Regards, ADAM of ALDEN OF CARMEL

So looking at pictures...

 

  • Older cigar looks like newer ravello.
  • New cigar is so dark it's closer to color 8.
  • Old ravello was more "red" and closer to Color 4.
  • Color 4 is probably never going to happen again or very rarerly.
  • Newer Color 8 is either super dark or occasionally "purple-ish" like the Jcrew PCT boot / older Color 8 is like this too.

 

Am I getting this right?

Spam.  I received this from someone else, too.  I'd reply back to him and let him know to change his PW.
