Thanks Steve! These are aberdeen last.  General recommendation is to go true to size - I did and believe most do.  I have them in cordovan as well and the fit is fantastic.  I believe BB has continued to restock this model so be on the look out for their next sale.

It sucks that there are people looking to make a quick buck. There's some people in this thread who would have kopped and loved them at ~$800. I mean capitalism is capitalism and I'm always on-board with making money, but that would be frustrating. It's a hunt and if you move too slow, it's on you - I get it. However, I really hope that they never sell north of $1,200-1500 so that it doesn't invite more people with no intentions of wearing and just drive the market up.

 

I despise this activity as well. But that is my preference. I know that there are many flippers out there who see this as an opportunity, but to each their own. I am okay with flipping where the flipper did work to find a good buy on something, but this is a different league. The price on those eBay Alden x Leffot Ravello Daytrippers is just crazy. Also, knowing the fact that Kathy at DC just made a run plus has a second active run, just makes their Leffot IG quote pointless. Just my two cents.

Hope everyone is working off the holiday funk and getting back in the groove.

Nice looking and patina'd Chukkas. Very cool. Took me a minute to determine if those were Chukkas, PTBs, or Boots, which is actually pretty cool.

Do I use wax or polish on this? I don't think deer bone will help this scuff.
Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

Canuck, you are looking terrific in your Naval Boots. It is good to see you posting here again!

 

I am terribly sorry about your toe, I am sure with brushing, using a deer bone, Color 8 paste wax, and time it will disappear (almost completely)! Continue to wear them in good health my friend. I hope that you are okay other than the scuffed toe.

Vicious, those are great looking Chukka Boots. I am also excited to see how they patina with time.

speaking of kathy, she had a pair of ravello boots in 10 or 10.5 when I stopped in last week.. I think a return from a client.. 

 

I still cant get used to the handle on the front door there :rotflmao: . When Kathy saw me struggling with it, I'm sure she thought I was trying to stick the place up due to my hoodie and jeans attire. 

 

She showed some loden suede makeup they just got in, almost pulled the trigger but my better half got to me.

Thanks NY!  I am 7.5E in Aberdeen but seems they only stock them in D width (8D in aberdeen is a little bit too long for me), may be I should choose 7.5D and break them in.

Roguls, If you are trying to stop buying Alden's, it is highly recommended that you stop visiting this thread as per the Alden FAQ. ;-)

Sorry about the misfire there dude, but can you provide a clarification, is the better half in this instance a spouse or significant other or just your conscious?

Were they 1sts or 2nds?

1sts. Absolutely fine condition!

HELP!

So the area where blooming is happening on my fairly new #8s feels rough to the touch. Is this normal? It feels kind of dry to me. The boots hadn't been worn before me, but who knows how long they sat before I bought them. I believe they spent a long time in the back of a J. Crew.



Probably a dumb question but, I just recieved my Collonil Goat hair brush today. Would the fact that it's Goat hair opposed to Horse make any difference in the way it works?
