Those are gorgeous!  Where did you get them?

nephew,
looking forward to the results, thank you for doing

those look great with jeans

Thank you, I was a little surprised myself at how nicely they paired with denim. They also go nicely with my tan khakis.

Have you ever been sized? Are you sure you're not actually a half size smaller?

Yes, I have been, multiple times. I measure a true 9D on the brannock and these are an 8E. I have noticed that I get more rolls/creasing on my plain toe shoes than others, which may be because I have a lower instep. Unlike others here, the van last is my favorite and best fitting. I don't mind the rolls/creasing though, and actually prefer it because I think it is part of the beauty of shell.

I'm betting the creasing will be pretty close....imo

I've been eyeing Alden Ravello LWBs ever since I saw them in person in Alden of San Francisco.  I missed out on the order from Leather Soul (those were really short wings with antique trim) and Leffot (long wings with antique trim).  I jumped at the chance to snag a pair after my brother informed me Alden of San Francisco had acquired them.  Thanks to style forum for informing him!  Here are a few photos I've snapped.  I can't wait to break them in!  These will hold down my brown/tan shoe fort until summer returns and I can wear my snuff suede shoes again.  As far as the black vs antique trim goes, I can live with the black trim, but I would prefer antique.  If I ever wear these out, I'll ask Alden if they can switch the trim when they are rebuilt.  Apologies if these showed up in the main galleries.  I meant to only upload these into my personal gallery.  These are in a Barrie Last size 7D.

 

 

I love the way the ravello shell color changes as the light hitting the shoe changes in subtle ways. 1/2

These look fantastic - great choice.

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

Edge trim looks great on these. Enjoy wearing.

I just love how we all hold our Aldens in such high regard that we photograph them on dining room tabletops, high end leather sofas and Persian rugs.  One of these days, someone will put one in a Baby Bjorn...

Wearing Aldens in a baby bjorn will eliminate toe wear and creasing and obviate the need for topys. I'm going to try it.
