What about natural cxl PTB in size 10D?

I tried it on a pair of Alden color 8 chukkas and they are now going for $520!  Wish I had a desire for any of their AVAILABLE Alden offerings!  That Ravello would have been sweet for $560!

 

Good luck...

Yup. Aldens ringing up. Dangit.

Would've snagged the tobacco now if not for my Epaulet purchase...

If you go on a hunt for the LWB, let me know if you spot any 12's.

I'm going in most part by what Nick Horween posted on AAAC which is very little and I have done a lot of research on it, that seems to be the only knowledge base I have found. And I would hope that you PLEASE DO post some pictures for a comparison! The Alden Ravello at first were a disappointment to me. They were almost a perfect match for my walnut chukkas which was not what I was expecting... However after just a short time in the real world with UV the red is really coming out, after a couple of wears they are starting to distinguish themselves: on the right compared to 3 walnut shells on the left:

 

The Dalton to the left has aged beautifully to a perfect walnut color, the strand and Dundee are darker. The Alden Ravello is very new and thanks to Ryanfan I was able to purchase it through Alden NY (Madison). At first I was disappointed, it was almost a perfect match for the walnut chukkas. But in a week and a half time and lots of the "method" has already come out with better red highlights than when new. Time, UV, and finishing processes all come into play. I was afraid that whiskey would be too close of a match, but looks like Ravello is actually closer in my case.

 

Found a recent picture I took with the C&J for RL Marlow and some other brown shell for comparison. The C&J is between the 744's.Shell Dalton's to the right with what I would consider a true walnut color. Dark brown to the far left.

 

And at the risk of getting shot on this thread here are the 5 AE shell colors without the Alden Ravello which I need to get into a new picture to be included. Could care less, the sound of the bullets going by your head are almost secondary to the flinch you get from the muzzle flash you first see in real life, and I really don't give a damn if it helps someone else out. Bottom left up- #8, Black, walnut, front bottom: dark brown, truffle AKA:cappuccino.

The Alden cigar shell LWB is great. It was my first Alden LWB. Wearing the black shell LWB today ....

Uh Oh... The last time you made a statement like that Seven I found myself purchasing the Alden Chukkas in Ravello when you were wearing the whiskey chukkas. Well guess by now I have learned that I might as well just transfer money from my savings to checking because there must be a pair of cigar Alden LWB in my future. And thanks for the heads up! smile.gif

 

6th year of preference points in Co. for the chance to get a shot at Royal bull elk (6x6). So I understand what it takes to pull a tag for a unicorn. Fingers crossed! And good hunting....

Looks like you can reliably depend on J.Crew to offer discounts on Aldens every few months. I don't seem to recall an instance when their store-wide promo codes did not work on Aldens.

Have the tobacco lwb in my cart now... I just bought a a pair of scotch grain indy from unionmade last week.

The indy at 8.5 is Snug, I am afraid the Barrie would be too tight width wise. If i go up a size in length it might give heel slip. If only the had E width. How close is the barrie to the trubalance? It needs to accommodate my bunion frown.gif
post #44273 of 87383
man I really want those Alden Jcrew bucks but size 8.5 is only available in bisque. frown.gif

Wish I waited to get those plain cap toes!

there's nothing else I really want ...

anymore real life pics of the tobacco LWB?

I just checked the email I got from J Crew this morning.
It was a different code.

Just used it on some #8 chukkas.

I'm pretty sure those codes are one time use... I snagged the suede lwb with mine.
