BTW, picked up a sand suede belt with nickel buckle from the DC store last week. My compliments to Kathleen for her great customer service in trying to get my shoe sizes fitted correctly. She is great to work with.

It's actually a makeup for Sherman Brothers, not the stock Alden shoe.

Perhaps it's the lighting but yours look like a different shade of snuff than my lwb. Are those on the Barrie? Not seeing the shoe on the Sherman Bros website.

Not on the site, but call them, they have it in snuff and a darker brown. It is Barrie, and I assume that you are right about the color difference being due to the lighting.

I wish there was more science to this but really if we do mail order it is kind of a blind voodoo until you get to know what personally fits. Good Luck. EDIT: To keep this from getting out of hand I would like to add that both fit and I have no problem. I just notice the boots seem to be ever so slightly smaller and actually look sleeker than the shoes. Just my opinion. YMMV
Thanks for the input on that.

Now I'm pissed, Alden SF just emailed me saying they're all sold out. Anyone know where I can get these ravello chukka's in 8.5D? Thanks.

I bought a pair of Ravello chukka seconds from SM about 6 months ago in 8.5D. The "flaw" on mine is less noticeable than those stretch marks. Sorry.
