    It was :bigstar: the ravello short wing blucher.

    Now...perhaps the whiskey cap toe bal. Or the LS 4x4

    Definitely ravello. I think that's also a pretty dark whiskey.

    You should still pull the trigger on the cigars.

    Thanks! The LHS is a classic.


    You're welcome.


    You are correct, it's ravello. In the LHS collection pic it's whiskey, #8 & ravello from L to R.

    After trying my first LHS, I'm also up to a trio - #8, black, and whiskey (arrives next week) :slayer:

    Damn, I wish I could wear cordovan LHS. (I can wear the unlined suede). I am going to try the BB unlined version. Or I may just have to kill my feet in a regular pair.

    Wigglr, at 22, wearing LHS will make you stand out from your peers in a good way. I'm 28, I wish I started wearing Alden shoes earlier.

    The LHS is probably the only Alden shell model where whiskey would be my first choice. I have whiskey (9C) and unlined color 8 from BB (9C). I actually like the fit of the BB slightly better. Getting an exotic shell LHS in a C width can prove to be a difficult task. :nodding:

    I would also still have the ravello LHS but it was defective, and the retailer had no replacements in my size. Oh well ....

    Gentlemen,

    I have a quick question. I wear a 10D in the 901 (Hampton) and am thinking about getting the 4060 boot (Grant). Should I stick with 10D or go with 9.5D? Perhaps 9.5E?

    Please help me. What is LHS. I see so many 3 characters acronyms WRT Aldens shoes. Maybe someone will provide me with the proper interpretation.
