Got it. Still, $750 is already a markup from the Leffot price, right? More power to the seller if he can get that price.

Maybe but it's hard to tell since many on this thread are from CA. biggrin.gif

 

More seriously, this is totally absurd to sell brand new or used Alden shells at such a price, whatever the scarcity of the Ravello, #4 may be.

Once again, the law of supply and demand...

When I bought mine at Leffot I think I paid something like $750. out the door with tax.

Ok.

Alden DC whiskey wingtips; tremont last

The first photo is more indicative of the color (both pants and shoes) - in the second photo, the sun was blaring down pretty directly, especially on the left shoe





How about this for a fall/winter outfit - mid navy suit, camel/tan overcoat, whiskey wingtips - I just need to procure a tan overcoat (been looking at getting one the past three years)

^ I love how he puts "purchased new these shoes cost $414.00", yet the ones he's selling are completely beat to shit. It boggles my mind why people try to sell shoes in this condition....I wouldn't even waste my time taking those to a thrift store to donate.
