Yep I'm on that for the tan suede LWB. Hopefully the wait shouldn't be too much longer on that one, since there's no extra time spent waiting for a rare shell color.

Thanks guys. They might be the best Alden boots I've seen.
Judging by this picture, this could pass for a dark ravello quite easily. It must have been a particularly light batch of cigar. Or perhaps it is just the picture ....
My cigar shell/snuff suede saddles from Leffot have very light cigar.
Based on the above boot alone, the last looks much nicer than say, Barrie. It has a nice shape that's a little more stylish while not betraying Americana for European last-stylings.
My own humble opinion, of course.
I think they have to be able to work for your feet, the arch support in particular. But I like the look as well, at least on some models. These PT cigar boots and stevet's Ravello model are really outstanding.
