    Had 'em since Nov 2012. They were from that batch that mysteriously showed up at TSM.

    Hi all,

    Is finding a non-shell NST boot on either the Aberdeen or Plaza last more of a MTO thing or can this be found online somewhere? I've searching for a week with no luck.

    Thanks in advance.

    I asked about these last time I called and it didn't seem like it was even a possibility. But I still never say never.

    Yes, J.Gilbert has them on Plaza in Cognac calfskin in quite a few sizes. They also have some in black calfskin.

    Good Morning Gentlemen, not sure what happened when I tried uploading the pics from my iPad, but here are the full sized pics... Ravello LWB from Alden of Carmel and Navy Suede PTBs from Alden DC (actually shipped straight from the factory to me).

    Comparison shots. Here next to the recent Ravello Chukka and Ravello NST shoe.

    Here compare to the Whiskey LWB that was recently shipped from TheShoeMart.

    And I wanted something different, so I decided to go for a pair of Navy Suede PTBs. Think that they are kind of fun and I like the Navy and Antique look...

    Mike, The recent patches of ravello really look amazing!!

    I also pre-order a hunting green LWB from JGilbert for something fun too! I think they are the first shop to have a LWB in hunting green, will be shipped by the end of OCT or beginning of NOV. It must be fun!

    YES! I've had my hands on a few brownvello shoes (of which I never actually kept) and these new AoC LWBs blow that old color out of the water. It's a completely different shade.

    I hope alden finds a way to bring this back. It would be fun to see #4 lwb and a ptb. And an nst aberdeen boot. And an lhs.
    Outstanding dubs. The new lwbs look perfect. Nice blue ptbs as well. Now that classic Ravello is back, maybe the good folks at alden can throw us a bone and make a few ravello belts!!!!!!!!! Size 36 please.
    Great shell + denim combo bk.

    The piping on my Tankers seems to be coming apart at the end of the eyelets, one side on each shoe. I think it has been like this since day one but not sure if it has worsened but I was really noticing the loose threads today.


    You guys think it's anything to be concerned about? Anyone have the piping unravel on them?
