For trublance lasted tankers, try citishoes in NYC.

TSM has the aberdeen lasted NST boot on leather sole. A dressier, more refined version with a different feel altogether. Beautiful boot.


I was in Context yesterday and they at least had a pair on display, if not currently available. It sounded as though they had some, although I didn't explicitly ask since I don't like NSTs.

J Gilbert has had a list going for a year or so now for 6 eyelet #8 chukka on Barrie with commando sole. It has yet to get confirmed by Alden but you might want to put your name on that wait list. That is one of the few left I am anxiously awaiting

For some reason I can't seem to get to their website but I'll give them a call tomorrow. My preference is for something on Aberdeen but I'd certainly consider what you describe. Of course, my arm could be twisted for the Ravello NST's MAC posted a few days ago.

Much appreciated guys. Thanks.

Uncle, I like the antique edges with your LHS. You had B. Nelson do that, correct? Regardless, they look great and have developed a nice patina.

Just a PSA: Before I send a pair of 2nds back to Shoemart, I wanted to offer them here if anyone wanted them at cost - they are Ravello LHS in 10C. Mdubs was spot on in identifying them - they were done specially for him but have a nick/cut in the leather on the right heel. Its really minor and not that deep - if the size worked for me, I would definitely keep them. Just want to pass the deal on so $499, which is the new exotic 2nds price direct from Shoemart plus shipping at cost. Feel free to PM me.

I want the Ravello NST boot with commando sole on Barrie, all eyelets. The one that apparently Alden has been sleeping on for Epaulet. One of my grains.

Here is a pic of the flaw:


I believed it to be a cut through the shell (probably accidentally done with the clicking knife) and didn't want to pay full retain for them.

For sizing, I am a 10.5C (TTS) and 10.5B Barrie. I have never tried on a 10C Barrie to be honest. I don't like giving sizing advice on the LHS due to the low vamp. It's a 3D problem on this shoe.

As DV stated, I think the #4 is actually Cigar. Based upon the model number and picture.

And for what its worth, here are the pics Mike took - Alden definitely repaired this cut somehow, I assume with glue - it definitely doesn't look anywhere near as bad as this. It is really minor and I am rather particular.

Epaulet's version is a Brixton boot which is a wingtip boot

Are you sure?

I asked Mike about the NST Ravello boot and I believe I posted a pic, he confirmed its the one they've been waiting on for almost 3 years.

All these Mikes being thrown around here is confusing me!

I was on that waiting list, along with many here. It was def a wingtip boot, unless Mike had something else in the hopper he kept secret.

Almost positive. I am pretty sure he and I talked about it when we were together the other day as well

Yeah, I am pretty particular. I am surprised that they sold that pair to me as a first and fixed it and them sold them as a second. I will just give them the benefit, as it is pretty small and in the rear of the shoe.

I wonder if all the shops open the boxes on all their shoes and go through them. I know that Alden DC does as I have heard comments about how much fun it is to do.
