Can't say I blame you. I really should have bought yours. Instead I got EG fever.

Looks like Mac's are Plaza, so I really don't blame you!

I was in the fence as well for an 8.5 and sat too long. Looked like a great shoe. Good thing is something always seems to come around to replace what I missed. Time to see what that may be.

Hope one pops back up for sale for you on the site.

Gents,

If you're on the list for a size 8D of this run of DC's ravello LWB, happy to take it off your hands. Just FYI.

Half size too small buddy happy.gif I got in for 8.5D nod[1].gif

Also on the list for Alden DC cigar chukka!

Anyone looking to broaden their horizons should check out Carmina's sale section. They have 50% off shipping this month to the US which makes their sale shoes a steal if you wear the right size.

I remember someone picked up a pair of their cognac shell LWBs a while back. I'm tempted since they have my size but would love to see pictures.

I could be wrong, but I think those are on the barrie last.

Thanks for the correction, Gents.

Hey guys,
A while ago I nabbed these shell BB PTBs from a thrift shop. I posted them here. The soles were at the end so I sent them to B Nelson. I opted to get the crepe soles on them. I just got them back and they look great. I commented that these look almost cigar like but Alden/BB never made them in Cigar. Just burgundy and black. I'll take a pix of them in the sunlight when I wear them to see if you can still see any burgundy.

They don't have that leather cover on the tip that some of the Alden crepes come with. Also, many of you commented that crepe is as heavy as a double leather sole, but these feel pretty light (lighter than a new dble sole?). Sorry I didn't weigh them beforehand. I asked for a darker crepe and Nick complied. I didn't want that orangy or yellow crepe.

Took 5 weeks to get them back. Total damage was $150 (shipped both ways). Thanks, Nick.

Ended up making an audible and swapping my Tan Suede LHS' for the Snuff Suede PTBs (My wear is super casual and I think these will get more use over time. I'll probably get the LHSes eventually too!) Maiden voyage for my first pair of Aldens!

No wrong answer, but good call.

Nice looking PTBs. I like the look of snuff on the Dover pattern, but I already have them in tan suede, so I think I have that basis covered already.

Uncle, nice looking Wingtip Boots. Are they on the Plaza last? At first I thought they were the Barrie model as the toe doesn't look to square to me, but I only looked quick. Thanks!
