that's what I think and I hope they keep the price the same when they restock, because I don't have shoe money left atm...

Thank you! I personally believe that the Alden Ravello LHS is a masterpiece and is one of the best shoes Alden has made.

Can anyone else say Whiskey Wednesday?

 

Whiskey LWB + Alden Whiskey Belt (no crotch shots for ya'll)!

 

Sorry, not as creative on the location as say Tampa Travel...

That's it! I'm getting me some LHS.

I'm on a few lists for Whiskey but the itch is too strong. I'm going to pick up the 986. I'm a regular 11.5/12d and read that the Van last is a bit big, do most people size down 1/2 size? If i'm a 12d in aberdeen/grant would a 12b/c work?

LoL, what tossed you over the fence?

 

I hate giving Van last advice, as it is a 3 dimensional problem, and the Van last is a lower vamp last and can be difficult for many to size. I personally go with my Barrie size on them (1/2 down).

What set me over the edge? I have missed out on Whiskey LHS a couple of times over the years. Every time I see a Ravello or Whiskey LHS photo I drool like an imbecile. Seeing as those don't get made very often, I'm going to grab something that I can get my hands on reasonably well. I'll try the 11.5 in Van and hope it works. My feet are weird and I wear 12d barrie in certain makeups and they are great but I have a couple of pairs in typical TTS lasts (aberdeen, grant) and the 12d also fit me really well.

I'm scared going down to the 11's I guess!

I haven't been able to try on any LHS's in shell but like the comment above, think I may pull the trigger. A few questions that I would be grateful on getting replies: I'm a 9D Plaze, 9D Grant and about a 8.75 on Barrie. Can anyone give sizing rev's? Also, what retailers typically carry them? Would love to get a pair in Ravello but can see getting use out of cigar or #8 also. Is the Brooks Bros model also on the Van last? Thanks in advance

I completely understand.

Also, for me, I seem to take the same size in van and barrie (11 C). Note that I don't own the LHS and have only tried it on. But that's just because I'm waiting for it in whiskey like you (ravello would also be great).

Got back from lunch today to find these waiting for me.

Sounds like you are in between an 8.5 and 9. The 986 (colour 8) are a standard Alden offering and can be found everywhere (shoemart).

I saw a picture of the LHS in colour 8 with an antique edge a while back, I would be all over those if I could find them.

I haven't seen a Ravello release of the LHS in a long time (to be honest I am not on a list for them, so they might have been confirmed at some point). Whiskey was available last year briefly from some retailers.
