Ravello is pretty smashing.  I'm equally wow'ed by ravello and cigar! Not a huge fan of whiskey.

Great boots, frank. Straight tip color 8 captoe is the way to go

I agree, they won't sell. He has only 26 feedbacks and in all but one he was the buyer, not seller. He doesn't know what he's doing.

Absolutely beautiful boots! Plaza last? I can't wait until I have a pair of shell plaza boots to call my own. I put in my deposit for the whiskey plaza wingtip boot at Epaulet, but that's still at least a year off.

thank you
the boots are on the plaza last

i know leather soul did this shoe once and it was the Leydon last (which i hope this is). but the LS version did not have a storm welt as this does, and I can't find any other store that did this model, let alone with a storm welt.
thoughts?

nephew,
ls version was on the plaza last and the style #89518

Also thought I'd post a copy of the insert Frans Boone sends that describes return policies, which seem pretty good to me. This may be on their site somewhere, but I haven't looked.

wear in good health

What stitching are you referring? I don't think the stitching determines the last, nor does the last determine the stitching.

Probably more like whatever the merchant specifies for the make-up is what Alden does.

We have confirmation from Alden themselves that those cigar Indy boots at the Alden San Francsico store are Barrie last, along with a couple of people who have gone there in person and tried them on all confirming Barrie last...

I don't have to wear suits anymore.  Jeans, chino's blazers ...Thoughts cousins?

I have the shell rainbow in chukkas. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Given your post above, I would recommend cigar, then ravello. nod[1].gif

Has anyone had any transaction with http://jgilbertfootwear.com before? How was it? I am lookng at buying a pair of Alden boots designed by them but communication stopped after 2 emails regarding getting the right size for the boots. I was going to provide my credit card details for the purchase but am unsure if I should go ahead as providing credit card details coupled with the poor communication seems rather risky.

nephew,
my reaction is just the opposite of yours-my first choice would be ravello and then cigar
