I am loving that texture for some casual wear. Wondering how it looks with a little bit of wear on them.

 

 

I posted pictures of these a few pages back.  Purchased in the fall and wear them all the time.  Great color and surprisingly flexible leather boot. I think the All Weather Walker is made from the same leather.  Maybe others can chime in on their experiences.

I make the rounds at all the Alden shops every so often just for S+G's asking for shell belts....often I hear a sigh at the end of the phone. Honestly, I don't think anyone has a clue.
The best bet for a shell (non-Alden) belt right now is Epaulet. I bought a saddle shell belt from them last month and love it. Not cheap though. If enough of us got together and asked Adele and Mike to have Carmina make a bunch of belts for SF members maybe they'll be interested?

My 10 y.o #8 Alden belt is well loved and still looking great.

I was told by a major Alden retailer employee that he has literally never even seen a ravello belt. biggrin.gif

Cigar boot looking great. Almost looks like a color 8. Must have been a dark batch of cigar.

Thanks, and yes a very nice deep and consistent color throughout.

Frank, a dark welt there, right? I suppose it's common for Alden SF cigar and ravello styles?

on the subject of belts, i bought a couple of calf belts from user zissou that have served me well - one in oxblood which matches #8 well enough for me, and one in natural which pairs with natural cxl. it felt great to buy from a forum member. also, i don't like it when belts and shoes match exactly.

I received a pair of ravello longwings from SF with a dark brown welt - I love it
