Thanks for the kind words rtp. It seemed like a big week for most folks on the thread. Lots of ravello and plaza #8 boots.
Great to see the shell shortage coming to an end. smile.gif

Thanks RTP. Funny how life can sometimes get in the way of one's enjoyment of fine footwear.

Been trying to catch up on the thread - I'm gathering that both SF and Madison got the PTB's in. Can anyone clarify the edge trim color? Dark or light?

I have ravello LWB and an unlined color 8 PTB. Assuming my size exists, I might have to jump.

Definitely a tough one. While I don't think owning ravello anything is a bad idea, given scarce resources, I can see your concern. I have a PTB and chukka in color 8 and even though the chukka is commando there are times that I think the two are too closely related and wish I could exchange one for something that provides a little more variety.

Dear sir, the gentleman who goes by the moniker "NAMOR" is a shoe afficianado of the highest order. His knowledge, wardrobe, and experience are second to none in the field of high quality mens footwear. His exemplary wisdom and patience will help guide you thru the maze that oft times is confounding and confusing. He's helped me a lot. The people on this thread who's post and pictures continually grab your attention can be a fantastic resource when making choices and decisions at a price point that to some may seem rediculous.

From the Leffot blog.

Shell sure is a stunning material.

I'm going to agree with Papa Doble on this one.  Inefficient allocation of shoe capital IMO.  I strongly prefer the PTB to the Chukka anyway.

Consider the Alden for BB PTB.  I have both the 990 and 9901.  While I really like both, I wish I had done the color 8 in the BB version. (Sleeker last)

Start constructing those built-ins.  They're worth it!

 

Speaking of which, I remodeled my home a year ago and converted a walk-in hallway closet into a shoe closet.  There is no vent in there.  Consequently it gets pretty hot and stuff in there.  Does anyone know if that will that pose any problems for shell (or calf) in the long run??

 

Thanks in advance...

I hope It was my mentor in all things Alden mcarthur who said that properly cared for shoes can be stored in a wide range of temperature variations without undo concern. "They're shoes, not Rembrandt's".

That's it! That's it! I'm going to get a job at j.crew after my normal job in Tampa. I love those CXL PTBs in Navy and those are going to be my next shoe. Now if only I could get them at a discount :-\

Indy in Indy airport. Staying a few blocks from Alden SF...must resist after recent purchases.
