was going to grab it until I saw the price wow.gif

Yeah. I looked at that belt and when I saw they still had my size I grabbed it. Not just #4, but ONE PIECE of shell!! For those who have not seen it and want to know how, they are from the full right and left shell set that has not been separated. The quality of the bridge between the two shells is good enough in rare cases to make a full length belt. This was the first I had heard of such a thing and could not pass it up. Already have #8 and cigar Alden shell belts, so this will complement nicely.

Call Alden DC. It has been a while since I have been in but they seemed to always stock Whiskey and Cigar PTB's. It is where I purchased my first Alden's and that is exactly what I got.

If you are against the LWB it is possible they may have a shortwing.

Shoemart has a Ravello Chukka:

Thanks mediahound. They only had one size left, and it was mine baby. Now I'll have something of extremely rare quality and beauty with which to hang myself after my girlfriend finds out how much I've been spending on shell cordovan shoes. Wait until she finds out how much my golf club membership is going to cost.

I picked up these short wingtip bal/oxfords form Alden DC a couple of months ago and have really grown to love them.  The tremont last is different.  I wasn't enthralled initially but they have grown on me... I was under the impression that Kathy had a bunch of them in stock.  Not sure what their stock is like now.  You should call and ask for all of their whiskey options in stock in your size.

I almost acquired a pair but I had already exceeded my monthly Alden allowance. Which last is most comparable to the tremont? Did you size down or was it tts? I

always get a little gun shy purchasing a last I've haven't tried on before.

I bought the same pair from her as well; I don't wear them as much as my whiskey PTB. Same size as Barrie for me.

As for suede, I love it. I had doubts because I was ignorant and though high (to me) end suede would be fragile and stain, blah. blah blah.

Well I picked up to pairs of white suede Alden's in one week. First I ordered some white suede bucks off the seconds list. A couple of days later I walked into Alden DC and they had a white suede saddle shoe one sale for a price I could not pass up so I grabbed those.

I had doubts about white bucks as I have NEVER worn them before. But since I had two pairs of white I just forgot about getting them dirty, stained or scuffed. Now I cannot wait to break them out (soon!). I wear them all summer, with and without socks. As a matter of fact I wore them at a beach wedding and it was perfect.

Later that year I picked up a pair of snuff suede plain toe boots with crepe soles off of the seconds list. Again I had some fears about getting them stained or messing them up. Now I love them and appreciate them for the ability to wear them in rain and even mud. I still do not like wearing shell in rain because of a bad experience with water spots, but suede is like this magic leather that I have grown to love. I think it is right behind chromexcel with cordovan for me.

Here is a pic of the white suede saddle shoes:





And here are the boots in Mexico:





I also have to add that I was anti crepe for a while but have also grown to love crepe through actual use.

Seconds list? I haven't gotten one recently...11d anyone?

Ps love the white suede saddle those are great

Thank you, but I should've clarified that I'd be interested in a shell PTB on the Plaza. I don't understand why the sleeker lasts such as the Plaza are more common with calf than shell.
