Thanks! Your collection has a bit more unicorns I believe haha. And I have never been a fan of color 8, had LWB and J. Crew boots but they sat unworn so sold them. Have Leffot Naval on order but it was an impulse buy and probably won't end up keeping them. Had some whiskey but sold it off too as it is just too light for me.

Haven't really been an NST fan neither but it's growing on me. I do have an EG Nevis incoming next year so maybe that will change my view a little

Old ravello is an epic shade icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif regret not buying more when I had the chance

Ravello for me this morning.

Amazing how the light changes everything.

One inside with harsh lighting, one outside with natural shade this morning.

I've been slow to warm up to the PTB (non-Dover pattern), but these pictures are making me rethink things.  I don't know if it's the color, but these look sleeker than the #8 pairs I've seen.  I'll have to jump on them if a pair of Ravello ever pops up in my size.  I'm not holding my breath, but it's good to know for the future.  Nice shade on yours!

IMO, this is Alden's best dress shoe model, in black or color 8. I have them in black.

Next up is the full strap loafer or the tassel loafer...

Unfortunately I'm a 8D in barrie...  Competition is fierce in the 8-8.5D range around here.

I don't think I have ever seen a black welt with antique edging from the factory.

I'm not currently wearing the shoes so I can't directly look at them. But I think the welt is just dark brown. Sort of looks black in the pictures I took.
