    Just checked the Box. It shows Marlow. And for indication $ 795 - maybe this helps to figure out the age.

    It may be that the earlier Marlow was a lighter color. Not sure though...

    I must say, that full strap is the only one I've every truly liked. I often find them far too elegant. I'd sport those in a heartbeat. Nice wingtips too! :slayer: Great post of a couple rare shells!

    Nice shoes. The wingtips are on the tremont, correct? Today I am donning my wingtip bals in color 8. They too are on the tremont.

    RAVELLO SWB in 9D (Barrie Last) from Leathersoul
    http://leathersoulhawaii.com/2012/05/08/alden-shoe-ravello-shortwing-restock-lsw/#comments

    I bought the SWB in May and have worn them a handful of times. Great shoe. I also have the Ravello captoe blucher on the Plaza Last with medallion toe. In all seriousness, I don't need both, and I have enough Barrie lasted shoes that I may be willing to part with the SWBs. If anyone is interested in the SWB (buy or swap; or combination), PM me. For a swap, I would be looking primarily for a model not on the Barrie and not on the Trubalance.

    dope man. I recently went to europe and almost left my indy's at home (sort of heavy and wanted to travel light), but good thing I didn't. it rained a little and literally walked around in them for up to 8 hours and my feet felt fine.

    So in general, one should size down by a half on Alden boots (J Crew versions also)?
