    Uncle Mac you say if necessary? I have a new pair of cigar indies and ravello chukkas on the way. I'm sure I could try to dig through numerous searches but that doesnt always bring up what one is looking for. Ravello brown wax, cigar? Whiskey ? #8? Thanks uncle Mac , as an aside what were you thinking as far as specs for a six eyelette chukka?

    Just picked these up, not sure if the bulge/roll near the toe is normal or not. Anyone else experienced this before? Should I exchange them?

    nephew,

    whiskey-tan

    cigar-brown

    i am not sure what is the meaning of 'specs"-do you mean specifications, if so, double leather sole, six eyelets, plaza last, antique outer sole and #8

    Uncle Mac specifications is what was intended. That make up sounds great I would accept any of the cordovans, perhaps whiskey as that is the one remaining for me, well aside from color#4 which is like bigfoot I've heard stories and seen photos but never one in the wild.

    looks like some unevenness where the toe cap is attached to the leather outer. my right #8 wingtip boot from LS developed a crease in this area after some wear, but the left was spared. said crease bugs me. i say if it bugs you now, exchange.

    It completely goes against my initial Alden shell acquisition plan -- namely, to not double up on a style before having one each in #8, cigar, ravello, and whiskey -- but lately I'm filled with a strong desire to get the PTB shell rainbow (including black, even). I love the LHS, LWB, cap toe boots, and so on, but there's something about the PTB. I probably won't do it, but I'm tempted.
