However, their pics make the shoes look quite a bit reddish...can any Ravello Shell owners post up pictures please?

I thank you in advance, but my wallet probably won't be thanking much.

I have these boots and they are amazing. I've said this on the board before, I was concerned about the color but when I received my pair, I was very happy.

I've used this logic on previous purchases on my former hobby (modifying cars). Except they weren't Alden's, but parts coming from Japan/Germany. And they were more expensive than the shoes.

If you can post pictures of them, I would appreciate it.

I guess I need whiskey sooner or later to complete the round up. Number 4 seems like it would be super hard to acquire.

I've been on a quest to wear all of the Alden's I bought in the last several months so on my days off, I wear two pairs a day. One new pair in the A.M. to run errands and another new pair in the P.M. for going out.

At the moment, I have 2 pairs left to break in.

I also noticed that some pairs are more comfy right out of the box. Not to say that any are uncomfortable.

Do you have a family photo? I wouldn't mind seeing what you've got at this point. It would be especially inspirational, as I'm looking to bolster my own collection.

What color pants look great with the cigar? Is there another color or style of shoe that works better with wool pants and a tie? I was thinking I would buy a black pair of LWB's but I would rather find a sleeker shoe in black. I know the cigar looks great with jeans.

Do it. My only pair of Aldens is a pair of cigar LWBs. I think cigar is the most versatile color that Alden makes, though I think a lot of people here would say Ravello.

My collection is pretty random. I might upload a picture tonight if I can finish my homework on time.

6 pairs of Aldens so far. Would've been 7, but I returned the NWT back to Shoemart for falsely advertising them as Barrie last.

Indy 405, Number 8 cap toe boot, Winn Perry pebble grain cap toe boot, cigar shell LWB, J. Crew's tan LWB, dark brown/burgundy pebble grain wing tip boot.

In no particular order for the upcoming purchases in '11: monk straps, black cap toe bluchers, and some whiskey type.

I bought my first pair, which was the Indy's, probably a week or two after I joined this forum. Everything else was planned except for the Ravello today and the Winn Perry, someone posted a link when I was browsing at work, saw it and bought it. I don't really have a hard time pulling the trigger on purchases under $1,000. It's the buys over the threshold that I have to really think about it. Mind you that I have to wear work approved non-slip shoes to work. I only have 2 days out of the week to enjoy my purchases...hence allowing me to break them in. I've been wanting to wear them sooner, but it's been raining prematurely in SoCal lately.
