post #41341 of 79255

I stopped by the J.crew Ludlow Shop in Tribeca, NY today and saw an absolute amazing make-up Ravello LWB with gold eyelet.  It is really good looking.   I should have taken a picture for the forum.

So a good few pages back we debated whether these are palza or tremont. Well, I thought the only way to settle the debate was buy a pair. Thanks to the good folks at Pelle LIne you can now the see the Alden Shell Cordovan Wing Tip - 96080 - Dark Burgundy in the wild.







Definitely Plaza last and definitely in need of a little Mac method care.

I've got a sizing question.......if I'm a size 11B on a Brannock Device (and 11B in Allen Edmonds 5 last), how does that translate into the various Alden lasts?  I know that narrows are few and far between, and from what I've read it's smart to size down .5 in most cases.  Is this accurate?

nephew,
thank you
i like both make up and i have no perference. i presently do not own the bb make up

Well. I was psyched to find a pair in my size at Shoemart. They arrived today. I tried them on and looked down and thought, hmm, something looks off. The stitching on each shoe didn't look identical - the stitching atop the shoe on my left foot looked farther from the welt than that on the right shoe. So, I measured. The measurement from the top of the welt to the outside of the stitching on the top of the left shoe: 2 1/4 inches; the same measurement on the right shoe: 2 inches. Argh. It's only a quarter inch, but I noticed. Am I being too exacting here? For full retail, I'd like the shoes to be perfect (or at least as close to perfect as Alden ever gets).

I think I am simply destined not to have a black shell loafer that fits, which irks me.

nephew,
i would return and ask for exchange, if not possible when they make there next order would they include your size

Size down 1/2 for Barrie and Truebalance.  Otherwise TTS for most Alden lasts.  Good luck.

I like Quoddy for boat shoes.  I'm getting ready to order a pair myself.  PM me if you have more questions.

You can also hit it with some Venetian shoe cream if desired.
