If they feel comfortable and like they fit properly every else, then that's fine! Not a problem!
thanks! only way I could afford this many. the cigars were actual Adam from AoC's seconds rather than shoemart. miss the days when you could go to his site and find stuff like that on hand!
See, what did I tell ya, the Dundee even makes Dr. Pepper's feet look good...
Alden Cap toe Ravello on Modified last VS Alden DC Cap toe Ravello on Grant last
From Alden Madison? My girlfriend really wanted me to get these when I was there but I have no experience with the red brick sole. What do you think? Comfort? Durability? Weather proof? They look great!
I just can't spoiler these! Great shade of Ravello. I am fortunate to have 2 Ravello boots in great shades, but neither have nearly this "carmel" look to them. So nice! That only comes with more wear and bloom. I can't wait until they look like this!
My cap toe ravello on Grant last.
Meh, I don't want to see them if they're not on the grate
Those Bison NST.......ugggghhhhh @MrDV you always find a way to get me worked up.
The Grant Last looks 100 times better to me. But it makes sense as the Modified is designed to be anatomical and not for looks necessarily. Regardless, enjoy your two boots.
Congrats, new acquisition from SF or Bay? -Mike
I think it will be easier for you to find Brown shell options by Crockett and Jones (direct, or via Ralph Lauren or via Brooks brothers) than Alden at this point. Pricing at this point is pretty close as well and you won't be sacrificing any quality. The brown they use is perhaps somewhere in between a typical ravello and cigar
very nice collection sir. the cigar lwb color is special.
very nice color. how old are those? i only ask because i tried sf cigar chukkas once, but came out too dark.
i feel the laces are too long, i wrap around to shorten the loops.
I started by buying allen edmonds shell before aldens. they were more affordable and much easier to get. i eventually tried on aldens and made the switch. i have since sold all my aes including 4 shell cordovan models, i lost a few dollars in that transition. if i were you, i would wait for cigar lwbs or chukkas to become available (call every retailer and get your name on the lists). cigar plain toe boots are extremely rare.
thank you. yes x alden madison via tsm seconds list.
listen to your lady, go get some. i have been looking for snuff indy on crepe, commando, or brick for a few months now. i didn't want to pay retail, and got lucky w these last week.
brick sole makes them very light compared to other alden boots i own, super comfortable, and quiet on wood floors. i've only worn them once and will likely never see rain on my watch.
holy crap! i didn't know. those look so nice.
thank you sir. the bison is kinda cool.
I haven't seen Ravello in person, but it looks like such an amazing color in all of these pictures. Awesome boots, all!
I just want to clarify, the only time I would recommend AE over Alden is in the RARE instance of the chukka.
As MrDv said above, if you want a LWB then Alden has no equal in that price range IMO.
The Alden Cigar LWB is a classic. Here is mine:
The Crockett & Jones longwing (Cheviot) gets my vote for a shell longwing with appealing lines.
I realize it's not Alden, but it sure is clean and well made.
I totally get that too smooth....I think you would pay dearly for a Cheviot in whiskey....probably 1k...
Then, in that price range, your opened up to some other LWB options that may trump CJ...
