    Pastor, these aren't much different in color to the ones you have...maybe yours are a touch lighter. I got these last year when Leffot had them, and yes, they are 9b/d. I took a chance on the E width you took from me as the b/d on some barrie shoes fits, but fits snug.

    Cool deal. I'm still amazed at the different color tones of Ravello. I'm in the same boat as you with fit. A 9D in the Barrie is a little tight and a 9E in the Barrie is a little loose. My best fitting aldens are a pair of the 9.5 D Epaulet Sand Suede LWB on the Leydon last. I wish Alden made more shoes on that last.

    I've looked at those shoes and would wear them more with dress clothes as opposed to casual outings. They are good looking shoes.

    I ordered the chukka. It's hard to find the suede chukka in barrie... It's hard to find the suede chukka in navy... so that combo is almost a unicorn shoe. It'll also be good to start a relationship with the Tassels store.

    Casual Fridays in April with light grey wool pants, navy chukka, navy blazer and a checked shirt sound great

    which shoe trees are you guys using?

    I can't get my nordstrom shoe trees into my plain toe boots from Jcrew.

    I had another woodlore shoe tree that fit it though but it was a tagged bigger size...

    Howdy folks. I just bought my first pair of Alden's: Shell Cordovan #8 Indy Boots with commando soles. I'm very excited to start wearing them. I'd like to ask about this break-in method that I keep hearing about. I'd also like to ask about taking care of them--I already have a pair of shoe trees. Shoe I put taps on these soles? I would imagine not. Thank you.

    Taps on a commando sole? is that even possible? I'd pass on that if I were you.
