By the way, it took me a minute to realize that's a table cloth. I thought you had a really odd rug.

 

It's actually a dust cover for my Steinway grand piano.  Sadly, I haven't played classical piano in years (computer science got in the way).  Maybe after I retire I'll play again.  :)

The photos I took of the ravello shells have the shoes sitting on the dust cover of my Steinway grand piano.  I guess it does look like a table cloth!  Sadly, I haven't played in years (computer science got in the way when I was in college).  Maybe after I retire...

 

I forgot to mention Alden of San Francisco threw in a free tan paste wax with my shoes.  :D

Tacco makes a leather insert (thinnest), Spenco a thin basic one and then you'll get into thick ones. Go to a shoe repair shop and check out options.

^Very Trickers-esque.  I like it!

I've tried on a pair of 8D Indys locally and they fit better.. it's the same last though.. makes my head spin @_@

You're reading the shoe marking wrong. It's B/D, right?

B is the heel, D is the width.

Gorgeous! Where did you get them and who is selling or has a wait list for this makeup?

shoemart had a limited run in random sizes. alden/shoemart ended up canceling the shoe and those that were waiting for their size to arrive were out of luck (me included)
no word if they will ever be available for pre-order again

Great looking boot. I tried to pick this up from LS after they were discounted to 300 but they sold out right before I contacted them.

Try the pedag holiday 3/4 insole - leaves room for the toes, slight arch support.

Was it tan or brown? Every ravello order I have received from Alden SF has had a brown paste wax enclosed, not tan.

Finally got myself a couple pair of Aldens. Gotta love the quality of these shoes, quite amazing.

I've owned a couple pair of Roy's, and they simply don't fit like the Indy trubalance. I've questioned it and was shown the hand baldy[1].gif

Great look man. Is that the A.P.C. Harris Tweed sport coat? If so I've got the same one and I love it.
