Thanks. I prefer to not cuff my pants. I'm short so I have been cuffing my pants my whole life because I had to. Even though it's in style, I still can't bring myself to do it. I have a couple pair of jeans that look better cuffed with boots, but it's a rare case.

I still remember when "Ravello" was referred as the new "Mahogany". That was just a few years ago, right?

Are a pair of 7-8 year old Mahogany Aldens known as ravello today?

Mine is the "12 Repair Kit" in Walnut. 

Looking great mediahound! I got mine in American Cherry and love it. I suspect we may have contributed to their Repair Kit being out-of-stock already. I'm glad my PSA was helpful to fellow members.

mikeharo- they seem to fit me like my other barrie shoes do (with my typical .5 down from TTS/plaza)

Tom, you didn't hear that!



Sorry for the somewhat overcast lighting, but that's what passes for sunlight this time of year, and it's brighter than it has been for awhile, actually.


From left to right: BB black, Alden cigar, BB #8, Alden mahogany, Alden ravello, BB whiskey.




And a closer shot:

Moulded sole also has a pebble grain boot.  
Thank you. Yes, the moulded sole pair is very nice.

Thx RTP.

The pix showing the mahogany and the ravello seem to reveal that the mahogany may be a bit darker than the ravello.

That's a classy box right there. Looks awesome. I wonder where / how other members keep their shoe care products.

The color on the boots looks awesome. Great deal on your Aldens.
post #62909 of 91615
Probably. If my memory serves me well, back when Ravello was introduced, it was often described as slightly lighter and warmer in tone than the old Mahogany.

seeing those mahogany pics makes me think that the recent ravello releases are more that shade than previous ravello
