    Hello Folks,

    New grant last cigar captoes from Alden of DC here. Picked them up yesterday. A pair of Ravello LWBs were also placed on my feet but I had to resist the urge, at least this week.

    Photos include different lighting and flash to show the hue. :satisfied:

    What is your favorite color plain toe blutchers? I'd like a pair someday and want to pick my favorite. I'm thinking Ravello or Cigar but am open to suggestions.

    ^^ This is correct - apologies for my misinformation above. There is a blogger I know in the DC area and I thought he picked his up in DC. I went back and read his post - definitely LSBH. IIRC Alden has done the same NST / Monk in color 8. But I can't find that now. I believe when LS did these there were no internet and no phone orders.

    Long time lurker, first time poster (very thankful for all the helpful posts in this thread.  I picked up a pair of Unionmade Alden Ravello Cap Toe boots.  Wanted to make this a move versatile boot so I decided to get them re-soled (JR soles) with antique edging.  My goal was to have them look similar to the Tassels anniversary boot from a few years back.  Happy new year to all!

    Thanks, if you can grab one, I highly suggest doing so. They are supremely comfortable for me. The Grant last is underrated IMO.


    Thanks, Uncle. Palm trees suit me just fine!


    Looking good in ravello, Uncle. Leather Soul always does it right. I really dig this particular creation.



    Thanks for the compliment, and I definitely enjoy these guys. Actually, this string reminded me to call Alden NYC to see if my size came in for the identical shoe in black, as well as in the same loafer minus the split toe in #8. They had them, and now both are en route to my house. Very psyched!

    Thank you, sir. Hunter (not sure what RL actually calls it, it's currently sold out on their website) the flash makes it look kind of minty. I have the same sweater in "heather green" (minty) as well as several other colors.

    Thank you, Uncle. That is part of the reason why I posted. The black LHS is especially under appreciated and I wanted to demonstrate how they can fit in to one's wardrobe.

    Plus, I had just administered the method on them.

    Anyone have the brogue boot in burnished tan and ravello? Wondering the versatility of the colors and curious if anyone had pics of the boot in the wild.
