2 Shell Man: I think I could probably get through the rest of my life with a plaza #8 WTB and a Ravello PTB.

Maybe I should sell off the rest and see how that goes? patch[1].gif

Today, Color 8 Tassel for BB:

Not a boot guy, but I appreciate the heads up on ways to get shell at low prices. :fonz:

I'm looking to get my first pair of shell cordovan shoes.  Debating between PT and LWB in #8.  I do not wear suits very often, mainly casual for work and every day.  I currently own a few pair of boots, 403s and PTBs in chromexcel, suede shoes and chukkas.

 

Any suggestions between the PT and the LWB?

 

Open to other suggestions too, wear a 7D in a Barrie.

 

Thanks!

Color 8 LWB my friend... it was my first.  The 990 will follow soon enough.  All the best...

That never would have happened if it was Venetian Shoe Cream.

I was lucky enough to get a pair of Alden Ravello chukkas. Any recommendations where I can get a belt that matches? I really enjoy reading this forum with all the helpful information.

 

Thank you very much.

Sazon has seen the light!!!!! Do it, sell the rest, do it!
I only need one boot for my alden royal flush. If I only knew someone who happened to have that exact boot in my size...

what's the contact email to get free replacement laces from alden?

Finally pulled the trigger on a pair of #8 cap toe boots, based on sizing advice I received from Yenni while I was in Seattle last month.

 

Should be here before the end of the week. Fingers crossed that these will work out for me!

Guessing because the BB version is unlined

Found the solution to my personal "what color paste wax for my color 4ish ravello" quandry. Kiwi Dark Tan. Apparently not that easy to come by but was described as "chestnut". Very much to my liking as it didn't change the reddish hue.

looking good in your gunboats
