    Went with my first "exotic" shell pair of Alden tonight; Cigar LWBs from AoC (circa 2011). They look more like a shade of ravello, but still love'em.

    I have one pair of Rancourt shell and just bought my second. They feel lighter than Alden and I don't like their leather sole. However they have nice composite sole options. Frankly I don't think Alden sets a very high bar wrt to construction.

    I don't think there is such a make-up my friend. However, AoC has it in color 8.

    Those Cigars are looking very nice and have a fantastic shine on them!


    Did you buy them from him directly or was that an indirect acquisition? When I talked to him on the phone, he didn't seem too keen on shipping to the US, I think due to Alden policy.


    Those are very nice Rep! :)

    I think they were a direct purchase. payment processed through the store etc.

    maybe it was a one time thing to move that pair.

    Those Leffot NSTs are looking very nice! A cool twist on the classic 2210. Hope that you enjoyed them today!


    Those Ravellos are looking amazing Zippy! Hope that you have a safe flight and a happy Easter!


    Very nice photo for a "quick" shot. :)

    Classic boots Zippy! They look a touch darker than my cigar LWBs (pictured yesterday)!
