    When the J. Crew x Alden Ravello LWB came out this past January (see mine below, that I just happened to be wearing today) folks were debating whether it was overkill to have both the J. Crew version and the standard version. I am obsessed enough with Ravello shell that I would keep both if I had the chance.

    I wish I could go out and buy everything I see in uncle mac's pictures, now. Sadly that may never be the case.

    They are different enough; one is awesome and the other solid. I wear my tobacco when I think it may rain and ravello in nice weather. Water spots do show up very easily on ravello and whiskey.

    Your ravello LWBs and these ct boots are splendid as usual. I am glad to see that you wear all parts of your great collection often my friend!

    I'm afraid this looks a little like the wicked witch and her ruby slippers. Oh well...

    I was second on the list but they only got one pair. I am currently waiting to hear if that person is going to take them or not...

    No problem, Ryden. I would buy them if they were available, but I'm not going to kill myself looking for them. I am in boot mode at the moment ;0)

    I just had an awesome experience shopping for some Alden's in Houston...

    Johnny Mykoff at Norton Ditto knows his Alden's and has been in the business for 30+ years. He even noticed my shell PTBs as I walked in the store.

    If you're in the area, I'd highly recommend stopping by. They even stock Saphir polish!

    They didn't have what I was looking for - NAVY CXL PTB but it was a pleasure shopping nonetheless.

    I thought I'd let everyone know in case business or life brings you to Houston.

    Does anyone have a pair of the Unionmade Hanover boots in walnut calf? I can't seem to find any pictures of them out in the wild, and would love to get a better idea of their color.

    Ha ha ha...no way! You have enough!

    They did have the LHS Cape Cod Horsebits in Black, Tan, and Black Suede for $225 I believe.

    Alden SF had a navy CXl PTB when I was in a few months back. Have you given them a call?

    I believe someone posted a pic of those a little while ago. Not much help, but I do remember.

    They don't have my size. I saw them in person when I was at that very store in May. That was...of course...back when I thought spending $500+ on a shoe was NUTS!

    oh...to go back to those days :)
