    Adam at AoC said they wouldn't be getting any more AF79 until October, but at the time I was asking after my size, so perhaps he just meant more in 10D.

    Either way, these 9.5Es are slightly tight around the vamp/tongue area at the moment, but I'm told this is common with the Leydon last.

    It's already softening up and stretching out nicely.

    It is not uncommon for people to be on a wait list for a certain size. 10D is a popular size. [​IMG]

    OK, More Alden. brand new Cigar side bye side with brand new Ravello. I am waiting for a pair of brown calf longwings from Tom before I wear the cigar. I have been wearing my Darlton's until then:

    I picked the Ravello up this week from the DC Alden store. I traded in this pair of Whiskey for them which I had never even tried on once I got them home. They had another order of these in the store as well so if someone wants the Whiskey or Ravello just call them. My pics of the Whiskey do not do them justice.

    HEH! Those are the Whiskey I traded in for the Ravello. The DC Alden store has the Whiskey Wingtips in stock in several sizes. [​IMG]

    damn Ahab, choosing between cigar and ravello is almost an impossible task. I can see why you had to have BOTH!

    Keep the ravello longwings for sure. I love my ravello wingtips more and more every time I wear them. They are just light enough to be unique but not too light to be worn daily.

    do people think whiskey is too light for everyday wear?

    I think they are great with jeans...but with charcoal pants, is it...close?

    It's rare and wonderful to cigar, whisky, and ravello brogues all happily cohabitating in a single collection.

    If pressed to make a choice between the cigar and ravello, I would go with cigar. They look so much more interesting against that contrast sole than the ravello shoes look. The lighter soles on cigar shoes just round out the look--esp. once the soles start getting a bit marred and beat up and leathery looking (I feel this way about the indy's too). It shows the beautiful shell off to much better effect than the soles on the ravello.

    I usually don't care for whisky but these look really great in that configuration.

    Here is the number from the card: (202) 347-2308 They set me back around $635. I traded in a pair of shoes so I am not sure how much, if at all, that affected price plus I picked up the white suede saddle shoes and some other stuffs. Here are some fit pics from today. Alden Cigar Plain Toe Bluchers, Barrie Last. The more I wear these shoes the more I love them. Jeans are SEXDBXS09 from Self Edge. They are awesome jeans but the rise is low and takes getting used to and I may have them hemmed a little long for SF tastes. I am still trying to get comfortable with shorter pants.
