    Alden x Epaulet Natural CXL Longwing (97871), Leydon.

    Currently starting wear #1 of Mac break in method. Oh, how I hope these babies fit. Love the color and various subtleties across the shoe - exactly what I was looking for in a casual LWB.

    Thanks to Uncle Mac, herrmj, NYI, wj4, PhiPsi, alcibiades, & beatlegeuse for your consultations over the last month or so. Really appreciate the input.

    It's like the Super Bowl and Mardi Gras all wrapped up into one... oh wait... :D

    Congrats on the pickup and enjoy that Ravello.

    Also, another PSA: Happened to receive a non-Alden related email from O'Connell's in Buffalo and they seem to have their limited Alden stock available at pre-price-increase levels: http://www.oconnellsclothing.com/manufacturers.php?manufacturerid=32.

    Sort of like they are on sale or something. Note two Cigar chukkas in 10.5 and 11. Someone buy the 11 so I don't.

    Nola will be busy driving home will be brutal. However day dreaming of chukkas should help padd the time. I just purchased a pair of cigar indys a couple of weeks when I saw the post about the ravello chukkas I thought oh yeah then I thought on no, my financial planner is on line two doh

    Does anyone know of a retailer whose cigar LWBs come with a dark brown welt? For some reason I seem to recall that Alden NY's do, but I don't know why I think that.
