    Have any of y'all seen these in person? They look more like Whiskey in this pic, than Ravello. Any thoughts? Thanks...

    I'd say Ravello, given how they're lit in the photos. The more I look at them though, the more I dislike the eyelets.

    PTB, by a slight margin.

    Was considering this as well until I felt the sentiments ^.

    Every guy should have a few shell PTBs and a few shell LWBs in his arsenal. :nodding:

    Out of curiosity, do you wear them often with suits?

    I saw them - definitely ravello (similar to other ravello I've seen recently). The shoe looks "lighter" due to the antique sole and the eyelets. Very unique shoe... I'm not sure which I prefer (Alden SF version or this version).

    That store has the best selection of Alden shoes of all the J crews... They also have a tan suede chukka on crepe (I believe the snuff is the only one online)

    If I already have the ravello LWB (Alden DC) which is on the darker end of the ravello spectrum, with the dark brown edge, would this purchase be too redundant?
