You should still pull the trigger on the cigars.

Either way, that is a beautiful collection of LHSs

You are correct, it's ravello. In the LHS collection pic it's whiskey, #8 & ravello from L to R.

After trying my first LHS, I'm also up to a trio - #8, black, and whiskey (arrives next week) icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Damn, I wish I could wear cordovan LHS. (I can wear the unlined suede). I am going to try the BB unlined version. Or I may just have to kill my feet in a regular pair.

Wigglr, at 22, wearing LHS will make you stand out from your peers in a good way. I'm 28, I wish I started wearing Alden shoes earlier.

The LHS is probably the only Alden shell model where whiskey would be my first choice. I have whiskey (9C) and unlined color 8 from BB (9C). I actually like the fit of the BB slightly better. Getting an exotic shell LHS in a C width can prove to be a difficult task. nod[1].gif

I would also still have the ravello LHS but it was defective, and the retailer had no replacements in my size. Oh well ....

Gentlemen,

 

I have a quick question.  I wear a 10D in the 901 (Hampton) and am thinking about getting the 4060 boot (Grant).  Should I stick with 10D or go with 9.5D?  Perhaps 9.5E?

Please help me. What is LHS. I see so many 3 characters acronyms WRT Aldens shoes. Maybe someone will provide me with the proper interpretation.
post #36116 of 86679

Leisure Hand Sewn, the style of shoes depicted in the above conversation.

The big ones are

LHS = leisure hand sewn = penny loafer where the strap does not go across the entirety of the shoe
LWB = long wing blucher = wing tip where the wing extends to the back of the shoe
SWB = short wing blucher = wing tip where the wing ends halfway down the shoe
PTB = plain toe blucher = plain shoe with open/blucher lacing

I agree with this, but I think this is also achieve with my Alden offerings that I have. Regardless, the LHS has grown on me a lot. Especially a pair of Whiskey, which could be great for summer

I the spirit of of LHS Appreciation Day

 

 

And a few non-stock Cigar LHS photos

 

 

Disclaimer: The Calf loafer is Peal & Co for BB

Decided to get the Wing Tip Shell Cordovan Color 8 Boots. Hope to get them sometime next week or the first part of the following week.At some point I think I would like to get a pair in Ravello as well.
