    Cappuccino is lighter. The Cappuccino looks kind of like coffee ice cream to me (or coffee with lots of cream). And also, to me, the Brown has a little bit of a greenish tint to it.

    I personally like the Brown, but the Cappuccino has lots more fans, I think.


    Edit: Actually, I am referring to "regular brown" Cordovan Strand, or the kind currently on the website. Were you referring to Dark Brown calf or cordovan?

    Just picked up a pair of Strands, and after a few hours of wear around the office I've noticed they are creasing in front of the toe cap. I know creasing is inevitable in the area behind the toecap, but I was under the impression that creasing in front of the cap is indicative of a problem. They fit very comfortably, and I was sized by the AE store, so I wouldn't think they are an improper fit. Insight?[​IMG]

    Sitting here with my first pair of Aldens on right now which just came tonight. Chukkas (of course!) in Ravello ... And love them. But the truffle (AKA:cappucino) is outstanding to say the least.

    My new Daltons in walnut calf (seconds):

    I'm very pleased with them and can't find any faults other than possibly a few dark marks on the interior leather.

    You got Alden! Excellent pick-up gettin Ravello. I'm on the other end with Alden shell and previously owning a pair of Cambridges. Do you have the AE with the "new" finish? How do they compare with Alden's finishing gloss?

    Is this an old advertisement or is this for the upcoming release? If it's for the upcoming release, MORE INFO PLEASE!

    This is an old advertisement from last year. I found it via google image search.

    At this stage, all the creases are minor. If the creasing in front of the toe cap gets worse, then that would be a cause for concern. Contrary to popular belief, the AE staff do not always perform proper fittings. Like many shoe stores, AE focuses on heel to toe measurements which can leave you a little short.

    I agree... I've measured as 4 different sizes by 3 different salespeople. You need to make the determination for yourself what fits you.
