    just received an email from B.Nelson. My Ravello wingtip boots are coming home after a resole. I'm hoping they arrive before Sunday :)

    Regrettably I am yet to purchase an Alden, so do not know for sure in terms of a comparison.

    But you need to size down half a size in general for the C&J/ Peal Cordovan boots. So I'm guessing - from what I have read- that they're like the Barrie last?

    Edit: I looked for the Ravello wingtip after you mentioned it; did not see them there. IIRC, the shoemart Ravello boot also seems to be out of stock.

    I'd like to see a full fit pic some time, your shoe/pant/sock combos always look great

    Does anybody know of a store - online or B&M - where I can get a Ravello wingtip boot in a narrow width? Of the places I've seen so far, like Epaulet and The Shoe Mart, they only stock these in D widths. I need at least a C width for the Barrie last to fit my foot. Any suggestions are appreciated!

    Get in on a pre order at one of the stores that regularly sell them, then wait and wait and wait. The only way you're going to find them in a C is if someone did what I suggested and decides they don't want them. That seems extremely unlikely.

    Yeah, ditto on this, NAMOR. You should post some full fit pics.

    I was in the same boat you are (size 9C, barrie, in my case) until a pair of size 8.5D cigar chukkas came along and called out to me. I haven't looked back since. Of course, YMMV, but I do suggest you give it some thought.
