I seem to be getting the ravello bug... only thing readily available in my size right now is a barrie chukka. Seems like a lot of people dislike this shoe for the sloppy fit... any opinions otherwise?

Honestly I don't understand this critique that much. The Barrie chukka fits fine, and cordovan chukkas look great.

Edit - also, essentially all retailers say that Alden chukkas are among their favorite models.

Thanks - seems like the casual chukka profile with ravello would be a good combo.

What I was drinking last night. I thought bourbon seems like a better fit in the Alden thread...

chukkas

Alden NYC stocks a lot of those, but sizes will be limited in cigar and ravello

I ordered these a couple days ago.

They've been pulled from jcrew.com hence the link to the cached page.

I ordered based on the pictures and didn't really read the description that closely other than seeing Trubalance so I knew what size to order.
However reading the description closer and seeing the below makes me wonder wtf I'm going to receive. I emailed customer service and they said the pictures and description are correct.
