Any interest out there in it?
It would help me make my case with them.

Nick V, great idea. As a guy who just bought his first Ravello Alden's count me in.

Folks relax. Today was President's day. I purchased a pair of shoes from Sherman Brothers over the weekend, and I received no update today either--and they are a great retailer. No mail was delivered today and their back office may have had the day off. Give 24hrs before you get worked up. I know, given the high degree of OCD found in this forum and thread, this is tough but don't panic, yet. I count myself amongst the most advanced OCD cases. smile.gif

Nick and all the other gents:

perhaps we should pilot a forum member's turpentine-free, non-toxic formula. He has a light brown (whiskey + ravello-heads):

American Homemade Stuff

I don't think I'll ever put any wax on cordovan (Reno and Mac Method for me as of yet), but call me in 10 years to confirm.

I couldn't contain myself, so I went ahead and called Kathy at Alden of DC (she's so nice!). I ended up ordering a whiskey LHS from her. Looking forward to it!! Should I have ordered the cigar or color 8 instead? I asked her not to ship until Weds (as I'm out of the office for a couple days), so it's not too late to change things...Definitely interested in your honest opinions and justifications. Thanks!

I have both Whiskey and Cigar LHS and you can't go wrong with either.  Light or Dark.....It will depend on what you will wear with them..

You know thew real answer and that is that you need both cool.gif

 

Welcome to the maddness

I would have said go 8.5C, but you can always exchange.  Doubt she would have had the Whiskey in that size anyway.  #8 She probably would.  For #8 LHS you might want to check out the unlined Brooks Brothers version. 

 

How bout some pics of your collection when the new shoes arrive?

 

Edit: Also, if you are looking for Beefrolls/Cape Cod type loafers and are not opposed to breaking away from Alden, check out Rancourt.  They have a thread on SF too.

Darn you Docalden. That was my exact plan this morning. Like a dry drunk I fought temptation all day. Now I'll be wandering all night if she has any grail coloured LHS shoes in my size. Hey brother, can you tell a fellow sufferer what kind of edge treatment those whiskeys will have? Does the LHS from Alden DC have a water lock sole? Man, I think I'm losing it. Doc, if I call Kathy tomorrow and they don't have my size in a whiskey or cigar LHS, I'll kill ya'. Just kidding! :-). Congratulations on a fine score. Looking forward to some pics.
