    Wow, I really like that. What size is this? I'm always concerned about proportions in my size, and these look great. How do you like the calf?

    I love it; these are an upgrade for my chestnut Red Wing GTs. The calf has some streakiness to it in the coloring that is excellent. These are 10.5s. The Trubalance really looks fantastic in PTB/Captoe/Brogue Cap design. The Indy seems clunky in comparison....

    Very Nice Uncle, Love the Ravellos. All the wingtips lately on the forums are making me trigger happy.
    I have to ask since I'm only a newbie(bought my first pair last June) to Aldens, "How old is your oldest pair?"
    Every pair you have looks meticulously well cared for.
    I know I probably speak for the majority here when I say you inspire the rest of us to maintain our own Aldens.

    #8 does look a tad too dark for the suit in this pic, but it may just be due to the lighting. I bet this looks much better out in natural sunlight.

    Question..I received a pair of Cigar Chukkas today from the Madison Ave. store. I applied Alden rain defender (lightly) as recommended by the salesperson. When I buffed them out, the white cloth had what looked like black poiish on it. Is this normal? Does Alden apply black wax over the brown for their cigar cordovan? Also, one of the shoes is slightly darker than the other...is this common? Thanks for the help and advice!

    1) It is probably just dark brown polish/dye. I don't think Alden would use black on a cigar cordovan.

    2) It is not uncommon, but you normally don't see it with chukkas as much. Can you post pics?
