    I just got the Marlows and really like them. I think the color compares mostly to Alden Cigar (which I don't have), though it's not as green.

    In this video, I compare them to Alden Ravello and Color 8:

    Yesterday, I was able to locate some new Alden for J.Crew models that will be released this November. The descriptions are rough and likely contain typos, but this is what I was able to locate.

    Natural chromexcel "longwing" boot. Obviously, there's a typo here, as Alden has never made a longwing boot. I'm hoping that "longwing" is supposed to be "shortwing", rather than "boot", "blucher".

    Black shell cordovan perforated cap-toe blucher.

    Black cap-toe oxford (balmoral) boot.

    Like I said, rough descriptions.

    Just got a call from Alden DC. They received some Ravello LWB's in my size. I'm so happy I could cry.
    She mentioned that the color of this batch leaned to the darker side and that the pair I was getting leaned toward a color #4. Not sure what to expect but pretty excited.

    You might want to call first to see if they carry it in the store. They say here that not everything on their website is carried in the store:

    thanks for passing this info along. At one point you'd mentioned (at least I think it was you) that they had some blue suede (longwings?) in the pipeline. do you know if that's still happening?

    Must ... fight ... urge .... to ... be ... self ... appointed ... grammarian (and spell checker) ... for ... the... thread (I mean, we already have Furo auditing us on our use of "lots", "tons", etc.)

    And I wasn't going to respond but now someone quoted it so I have to ask - "poal"? Really?
