+1. Of all the Alden retailers I've dealt with, Unionmade was easily the best to deal with and most customer-friendly. Easily.

These arrived today but they are going bac to TSM. Ravello 10.5D Aberdeen, I got $100 discount on them because of the wrinkle on the right shoe.
I learned two things from them. First, while I am a 10D in Barrie, I need either a10.5E or 11D in Aberdeen. Second, and many of you will consider this herasy, but I'm a color 8 or black shell guy. I thought I would love Ravello, but honestly, not so much. I think 8 is King for a reason and it is the most stunning. As for Ravello and whiskhey, I think historically they are less common because untiL recently and maybe in part due to this thread, they were less desirable.

doesn't look like those have the tiger striping that other pairs have had.. I'd have kept my pair if they were as clean as yours

i agree that Color 8 is all that.  But those look awfully nice.  But I am also a great sucker for the NST design.  Those boots look great.

I would pay full price for those boots as the wrinkling is something I could live with on boots, especially in Ravello, which is a very versatile exotic. Having said that, your reasons are sound and make perfect sense for an experienced Alden buyer. Shell's don't fit better with age. If they're uncomfortable now, they will likely remain uncomfortable. And hey, most of us have limited shoe funds and if 8 is king with you then that where the resources get allocated.

Sure wish I was a 10.5 Aberdeen.

If I wasn't pretty sure that I was either a 10.5E or 11D on Aberdeen too, I'd be begging to buy these off of you.

While I love my ravello LWB and tassels and my whiskey PTB, I wear them a lot less than my color 8 and black shoes.

Cigar is another story, however...

Not heresy. Just different strokes for different folks.. I agree that color 8 is the king. For me it is not even close. Further, many in the professional world, myself included, get the most use out of their color 8 and black shell models. Having said all of that, I am quite a big fan of cigar and ravello, and each has its place - with cigar winning that versatility battle. Whiskey is unique, and i own some whiskey models, but it has always been, and remains, my least favorite of the five.

I totally understand, for me #8 and cigar reign supreme. I have ravello boots (and had ravello shoes) and they are my least worn Aldens
