So the Alden factory is back from vacation and ... they're confirming orders. Orders that include whiskey, ravello and cigar.

This doesn't mean that your favorite retailer has the shoes at the moment but it does mean that Alden has the shell and they are begining production. All is right in Aldenland (good thing too because they've apparently lost the Australian market).

You are keeping good track of my sizing smile.gif. Let me try them on side by side and form an opinion. I haven't worn either much. I'll post some thoughts shortly.

Color #8 Chukka Friday:

post #32738 of 89930

In case anyone's interested, I was at Alden SF a few days ago and they had a size 7D Ravello LWB in stock.  Last pair, in case someone fits into these puppies...

...and Sky Valet is stocking Whiskey PTBs, antique edging, in all sizes from 9D - 12D.  I already have Whiskey chukkas and monks, otherwise I'd be all over them.

And to keep this post at least half on topic, Whiskey captoes:


Mind blowing. My new unicorn. Ravello sortwing down, whiskey captoe bal to go!

edit: It also looks like you get as much time in the tanning beds/vacation in the south of France as much as I do happy.gif

I dont know if i'd say "sloppy". You're not as locked in across the vamp as a lace up but they are totally do-able.

I have a barrie chukka and two barrie boots (one cordovan on double leather, the other natural CXL on crepe). Compared to the boots, the chukka is looser in the heel, and very slightly larger in the forefoot. I still find the fit more than acceptable for normal wear, but would avoid the chukka if I had a lot of walking to do that particular day.

I have the shell rainbow in chukkas, all on the Barrie. Mine are not sloppy.
