One can only hope....considering the Ravello Brixton boot was just a reorder of a style they ran previously, and that is now at 26 months and counting, I'm not going to hold my breath on this one. Hopefully they Cigar shell will be easier to source compared to Ravello.

This was a group MTO for a new makeup, which was ordered in January 2012. I can't remember all of the exact details, but I think it's on a double oiled sole with antique edge trim. So it should look pretty similar to the Natty CXL LWB they currently have for sale.

I think these were a B width if I remember correctly. If I had any money right now I would have bought them.

Wearing them sockless actually helped make my foot catch more at the heel, allowing for a less slippage. At least I know I didn't go too big by the sound of it from some of you guys.

You could Also try going in a width, if you think you can.  You might think that you can't handle a narrower width in the forefoot, but I find that often people are surprised when they try, and that this is the remedy.  

 

C widths can be hard to find

New Arrival:

 

Brooks Brothers Brown Suede Tassel Loafers

 

I was kind of hoping that I would not like them when they got here because I have my eye on something else and don't want to keep both because I feel like I'm out of control, but unfortunately I think I like them.  Not sure they'll get much wear.

 

 

 

Notice that they DO in fact have the foxing on the heel, unlike the Alden stock model 666.

 

Please, someone convince me not to like them.

Regarding the posts above.....My experience on the Barrie........Go true to size and down one width. The conventional wisdom is just to size down a half, but my experience (and Alden also suggests) is to just go down one width if you have this issue. A10c Barrie is a much better fit than 9.5d for me. Unfortunately C widths are hard to come by.

thanks for the tip, lots of sizes available too. I chatted with a customer service rep to see if I could get 30% if I signed up for a credit card but he said no.

Thank you very much sir. Is it theft that's the highest form of flattery? If so, by all means pilfer away.
