Looking for Alden Ravello Wingtip Boots in 10.5 D. Would appreciate any leads.
Me too! Or even 10.5C, 11C depending on the last. And not just boots. But, Ravello and color #4 in other styles.

Probably would get more traction there, but have had a few "not so good" experiences on eBay, so prefer not to list anything for sale there any more.
I’m eventually going to list up the pairs I can’t get rid of on eBay, but as you mentioned, I’m weary of doing so.

I'm sorry to hear that ebay doesn't always result in good experiences. In the last four or so months I have purchased my first pairs of pre owned footwear (Alden boots both times) and I had good experiences with buying and (I assume) the seller had a good experience. I paid, they shipped, I received and I am wearing. I've also had a number of positive (although not all were so) experiences on Craigslist and other online sites, both buying and selling. I only make these comments because the business model of these sites are great for people like us and I want to use them, but when people don't own up to their end of the bargain it's disappointing I'm sure.

And I know I don't post frequently, so you and others might be saying "who is this character", but I'm a long time listener and an infrequent caller. I will try to be a more active member, I sure do like Alden's, however where I live, it's really pretty harsh on them so I have to be a bit cautious when I wear them.

Both of the not so good experiences on Ebay, I was the seller and in both cases, people said they "didn't get what they ordered" and opened PP dispute. For those here who have bought from me, you guys know I deliver what I advertise, ship quickly and package well. I lost one PP dispute, and won the other.

Mack was frauded weeks ago by the very same trick. Seems like pp turns on sellers in a stupid way.
