Thank you very much NAMOR, you are exceedingly kind.

May I ask for more detail on your Ravello LWB's? They appear to have the same medallion pattern found on the LWB boot and medallion cap toes. I prefer that pattern. Do they have regular or water lock soles and where did they come from?

Thanks.

As I look closer at Mac's pictures, I am guessing those ravellos are SWB and not LWB. Still would like to know more. Thanks.

They're ravello shortwings that Leather Soul did a while back. I'm not sure how they were allocated, but I think only a select few got a crack at them. If they're ever made up again, the odds of scoring a pair are not high.

Thinking about clearing out excess "casual" shoes...

Keep two of three:
Leffot color 8 / grain saddles vs cigar NST vs Leffot antique longwings

Keep two of three:
Black unlined PTB, black tanker boots and black NSTs

Alcibiades, I would say keep the saddles and the cigar nst's, also the unlined ptb's and the black tanker boots. I wish I had such problems.

Was in Frye Boots in Georgetown yesterday and saw that they are doing shell cordovan. I have literally never seen a shine on cordovan like this; looks almost plasticky with how shiny it is. If you are looking for a pair of Mac'd shoes without the effort, these are your boots. Build quality did not appear to be up to Alden standard, but still ok.







$900

Do Aldens run long?  I sized down a half size as I understand you should.  Width is good, but they are a bit longer than my other shoes.  Judging by some of the pics here too they look long.

Frye has lower build quality, higher price and believe it or not worse customer service than Alden
