Anyone have shipping times/info from Tom Austin? Bought a pair last Thursday and NY is usually a 2 day transit.

The way I walk seems to put a lot of wear on the toes of my Aldens, and all pairs that I own have this same trait, but this pair has it the worst. Will toe taps fix this issue?

I've only worn these five times, it would be a massive shame to have to do a premature recraft.

They have been pretty busy so I would give them this week. It was also Memorial weekend so that will delay things.

This is the easiest $3 fix you can get. Unless you want them flushed then it'll be more like $35.

Yes, plastic/metal toe tap mounted over the sole or flush metal ones will protect the toe tips from wear.

Everyone around me was like "are you okay man you should sit down!" but I just wanted to flee and make sure my precious shoes were unscathed. Turns out I got a bit of chain grease on the ankles...but after a bit of brushing it left a unique patina so i'm okay with it.


Interesting new Oxy-method... bicycle chain grease and brush till your arm falls off. biggrin.gif

To me its a light brown, not quite whiskey, but not near cigar. I'm not sure where the "red" comes from, though when i first started getting into Ravello, before I bought my LWBs, I saw a lot of red.

Here were my 9E LWB I sold after realizing they were too big:

and my 9D Ravello LWB:

9d's were significantly more red. But compared to #4:

Your ravello lwb are just stunning. After seeing pictures of yours a few months back, I became mildly obsessed with getting a pair. Literally checked multiple sites on an almost daily basis until finally getting a call from DC a few weeks ago. Mine aren't yet as good looking as your but working on it. Other than Mac method, you do anything special to those?

Seriously though, I glad that you're OK.

I covet these (along with some of their PTB suede), so buy an extra pair in 10.5E or 11D that won't fit you and then sell them to me cheap.smile.gif

Holy crap I didn't know these existed. Crap.

I think J Crew offers something quite similar

NYR, are those Ravello LWB from Leffot? Also, does anyone know if Alden DC has any more of these and if so, is there a difference between the Leffot and Alden DC version? In other words, does the DC version have the darker edge trim? Anyone have a pic of DC ravello?

Got a pair from Alden DC. Has the darker edge trim. I don't have picture yet but if you check back a bunch of pages, others who got the ravellos from DC posted photos.

I recently passed on the Ravello LWBs from DC as I would much prefer the lighter edge trim.

Is the Alden DC ones edge trim totally black?
