    I can confirm they are Whiskey. After seeing them in person, I wouldn't necessarily agree with their condition rating. I've seen worse, but I would say they look like they have at least a couple of dozen wears on them.

    Thank you. These are about five years old, but I've worn them pretty lightly on the whole. I've decided I need to put a few more miles on them.


    Minelli's. It's where the wife's people have gone historically. Looked up Paulina, though, and I will have to visit.

    :crazy:, indeed. This is $1,000 for suede Aldens? Barney's must have bought the rumor on the price increase.

    Those $1000 Aldens are probably Brunello Cucinelli.

    Pastor, these aren't much different in color to the ones you have...maybe yours are a touch lighter. I got these last year when Leffot had them, and yes, they are 9b/d. I took a chance on the E width you took from me as the b/d on some barrie shoes fits, but fits snug.

    Cool deal. I'm still amazed at the different color tones of Ravello. I'm in the same boat as you with fit. A 9D in the Barrie is a little tight and a 9E in the Barrie is a little loose. My best fitting aldens are a pair of the 9.5 D Epaulet Sand Suede LWB on the Leydon last. I wish Alden made more shoes on that last.

    I've looked at those shoes and would wear them more with dress clothes as opposed to casual outings. They are good looking shoes.

    I ordered the chukka. It's hard to find the suede chukka in barrie... It's hard to find the suede chukka in navy... so that combo is almost a unicorn shoe. It'll also be good to start a relationship with the Tassels store.

    Casual Fridays in April with light grey wool pants, navy chukka, navy blazer and a checked shirt sound great

    Did you have that top eyelet put in on your own?
