    These ravellos are the bomb. However, I do wish Alden wouldn't use that rams-head medallion on every Plaza lasted shoe they crank out. It just doesn't look right to me.

    break in procedure-
    shoes should be worn only on carpeting on three different days for a minimum of one hour in order to ascertain that the fit is proper

    Speaking of toe medallion likes/dislikes, I don't think the topic has ever been brought up. I personally like 2 and 3 but would like to know what others think. Perhaps this info might also be useful to retailers for the purposes of future make-ups.

    I'd be curious to know if Alden has more designs in their archive other than the four you see done all the time...

    The Mac Method I know, this other bit I also knew, just didn't know it was called the "break-in procedure."

    We seriously do need an Alden sticky with a glossary of terms which covers the more esoteric aspects.

    Thanks for clarifying Mac. :nodding:

    I had just about decided that I was ready for cigar PTBs. But these ravello captoes have now thrown all my plans into disarray. Thanks for sharing.
