    ^ these were originally my shoes, haha. I like herrmj's pics better, and I can say these are a mighty fine pair of LWB's

    Picked up a pre-owned pair of Alden 9501 Natural Chromexel Oxfords.

    Can someone tell me a good polish or creme for these, hoping to grab
    something locally and not order Alden, etc...

    Leffot Ravello LWB

    More "orange" than "red," but I like the color of these LWB

    Interesting, I would bet Whiskey if you did not say they are Ravello!

    Great! Thanks for the help!

    Seriously, these are thrifted and not in my size, so I'm trying to get a bit of info on them for selling/trading purposes. Here's what Alden people have said:

    These are definitely lighter than my ravello tassels (which are more "true" ravello with deeper red/brown tones) but still darker and "redder" than my two whiskey models. Also, various lighting change how these shoes look significantly

    I have a pair of kudu longwings on the plantation crepe sole - these ones here: http://leffot.com/2012/01/12/alden-x-leffot-kudu-longwing-blucher/. Thanks to the crepe sole, these are among the most comfortable shoes in my collection. Yours look like they have definitely been resoled, but the condition of the rest of the shoes look to be pretty good based on your Flickr photos. The kudu leather is great for being able to take a beating though.

    Quick question, I got sized at a local store that carries Alden and might be ordering some here soon, but dont understand the size he wrote down for me. He wrote down that I'm a 11D/B which fits perfectly for the Indy and PTB and Chukka, so do I fit a B or a D? Either or? [​IMG]
