The beauty of Ravello PTB today. A few things to note:

1. These shoes got some water spots over a year ago that still will not come out ! Stubborn. You can see them in the pic.
2. The mismatch in the shell shades is quite evident in this light.
3. My ankles aren't as big as this picture makes them look!

Do you guys think $585 plus shipping is a bit steep for a CXL perforated cap toe in brown CXL with modified last from Moulded Shoe?
post #47373 of 86626
It is expensive. There's a premium for the modified last from Moulded and it is a small shop, so must feel they can't afford free shipping. To can certainly find a CXL boot for less, I'd think.

Banana Republic to start carrying the 990 & 975 thus creating a shortage even with #8!

Please tell me this is an April Fools joke

They would have to be the most expensive things in a BR by a factor of what, 5? 😄Admittedly, can't recall the last time I even saw a Banana Republic.

This has been confirmed. Flagship stores only though. It'll be cool to try on some Aldens in person. Does the 990 come in wide sizes?

Awesome, hope employee discounts work on the third party items.

I think Alden has decided to stop making wide sizes. And they are going to convert to the European sizing system, so we'll all have to figure out whether we're 43, 43.5, etc.

Does the Mac method change if the sizes are now Euro? Who is working on updating the last/sizing chart?

I just got off the phone with Leffot. My Cooney snuff suede boot preorder was cancelled as Alden is moving to one last - Barrie - for all boots, shoes and loafers... Something about having to streamline production.
