Thanks.

I have the cigar LWB and given the choice between the two, would still go with cigar. I like ravello, but I don't think I would have the occasion to wear them very often, so they're not on the top of my wish list.

I believe ravello is more difficult to find, so if you are on the fence in terms of personal preference and you would get equal use from either, I'd go with ravello. You could pick up a cigar later.

I bought my first two shell Aldens at the same time and I purchased the Cigar LWB and the Ravello Wingtip Boot. I like the look of Ravello better but I find the cigar to be more versatile.

In other words....get both.

if there is doubt - there is not doubt.  My first pair of cordovan shoes i thought were a bit snug - said to myself they would stretch - and 3 years later that same pair sits in the back of my closet collecting dust.

How exactly did this Alden thread end up in the Streetwear and Denim portion of the forum instead of the Classic Menswear portion of the forum?

Uncle-you continue to amaze me with make-ups I've never seen.  Is this an MTO too?  Do you have any secrets on how you get a shine like this, other than the Mac Method we know about? Stunning come to mind!

 

See Ya,

Steve

I think the original thread starters were mainly looking at Alden for boots to wear with denim. Compared to Allen Edmonds, which is seen as a dress shoe company, more people do seem to wear Alden shoes casually. That said, a lot of people in this thread mainly wear Alden shoes with suits, chinos and wool pants, which would seem to be Men's Clothing.

You should really reconsider Color 8. It is the king of shell.
The exotics are appealing, yes, but Color 8 is the king..
