    About a year and a half ago there was a ravello cap toe blucher on the modified last...hesitated... and now I kick myself often fot not pulling the trigger.

    So I just signed up for the 11 C list, and they sent me the 11.5D list (which is slightly different than the one I posted above) and the 11 C list. Here they are.

    Those cigar cap toe bluchers in the middle look interesting.

    Very nice. I have the same shoe on the Snap last (Alden for BB).

    Again, +1 for black shell. Looks very nice.


    Hopefully someone is buying or has already bought said cigar bluchers, because I could wear those.

    They're probably the right size for me, but I'm going to pass. Otherwise, I would've ordered them and then posted the irregulars list. :)

    I've had good luck just brushing the scratches. Otherwise a small dab of Venetian or Saphir.

    Either here or email them at [email protected].


    These are excellent. A #8 perf cap toe is probably what I would get if I needed another balmoral. It would be awesome if Alden made a few balmoral boot styles.

    Just picked up a pair of ravello plain toes on modified off the Shoemart irregular list. This is my first pair on the modified last so I'm interested to see how they fit. From what I've read they work well with high arches so I'm optimistic.

    The Modified really hugs your instep. I think you will like it.

    Post photos when they arrive.

    I was pretty much set on a pair of #8 chukkas from J Crew, but these captoe boot photos are making the decision harder and harder.
    they look great
