Mention that these boots were owned by a woman, and the fact that my wife is asking for a pair of boots, made me wonder: how many women are wearing Aldens? Is this common? Have you met or seen women wearing Aldens? Has anyone purchased (or recommended) Aldens for a female friend or partner? If so, what has been their experience with Aldens?

That is absolutely fantastic. Was thinking about a medallion captoe for my ravello as well - where're they from? Price?

I've seen some different views here on the thread.  The speed hooks can snag your trousers though I haven't had that problem.  And they can fray the laces which I have experienced.  Otherwise, I like how easy it is put on and take off the boots.

I ordered four pairs when I was trying to dial in my size on the Indy.  All but one had some scuffs or marks on them.  CXL is very soft and picks up nicks and scratches pretty easily.  Most brush or polish out.  I don't worry about it.

I'm obviously not happy about it but I'm not sure if it bothers me enough to return them. Obviously this would be totally unacceptable if these were dress shoes but since they're Indy work boots I'm not that upset. I guess I'm just shocked that a $500 pair of boots could get past quality control (or lack thereof?) looking like this. What do you guys think? Is this not unheard of?

Another point of comparison - I happened to wear my Alden of Carmel Cigar LWBs today as well. I took a couple of shots in different lighting....

Here are a few shots from today's maiden voyage.
Notice how much different they look in the natural light (3rd pic, although a cloudy day here in NYC)

Pebble-grain is infinitely awesome.  I'm wearing pebble-grain shortwings right now.

Just curious, what is the fit issue with them? I have a pair on order and I ordered the same size I wear in Barrie. 

I got them used off B&S. Previous owner probably wore them 5-6 times and I did the same so can't return. My earlier Barrie lasted shoes were 8.5D but realized that I'm better in a 8D. I add leather insoles to my 8.5 shoes so I can still wear them. The Marlow in 8.5D is a little loose for me in the heel even with an insole. Gives me blisters on the side of my heel.
