Man, sorry about that!  This Alden shell shortage is really getting out of hand.  :angry:

Anyway, if any of you who missed out on the Whiskey/Ravello PTB and wanted to try something else, I'm putting together a group MTO on the Tricker's thread -

The shoe will likely look exactly like the pic below except with brass eyelets.  Made of Tec (Teak) Shell Cordovan.  PM me if you have any questions.  Thanks!

I took a shot on the fit, but I think I might have finally nailed my LHS fit. I went 10.5B. I am 10.5C TTS and get 11B in the Aberdeen, 10.5B or 10D Barrie. I have a pair of Cigar LHS that are 10C and I am probably going to have to either go sockless with them or deal with the pain on the top of my feet. I am going to try these on a few times at different times of the day to ensure their fit, but I just tried them on (at the end of the day) and they felt great! The LHS has been a tough one on me due to the three dimensionality particularly associated with these shoes.

Thanks. 

I got my Tobacco Chamois Indys (not reverse) on Commando at Leather Soul. You could shoot them an email to check.

She said she probably answered 500+ calls this week about if so and so was in stock. Felt bad for here haha. Not too hopeful she is going to email/call with any availability.

I placed an order 4 weeks ago for a pair of Ravello LHS in 10D from TSM. I received my shipment notification today as well. Can't wait to get them.

Couldn't agree more. I have a barrie lasted snuff suede chukka on crepe that has a desert boot style/feel. Even with these, I still think I could add the LS Safari boot. I'd like to try and switch out the round waxed laces on the snuff chukka in favor of a flat cotton lace, not unlike the laces on the LS Safari boot.

 

I'm working a medical conference tomorrow and will be on my feet all day. I plan to wear the crepe soled chukka. It's my first and only crepe sole Alden and I've really grown to like it.

 

Next to leydon chukka on flexwelt for reference.
