    Frank is right about Sherman Bros. and PA shopping. I live 5 minutes from Sherman Bros. and they always have their shoes cheaper in store than online. On top of that every Christmas they have an Alden trunk show sale. Which is usually 15% off their in store prices.

    Thank you. Unfortunately I don't know where they are from. They were a gift.

    Buying cordovan is the quickest conduit from interest to obsession known and it ain't cheap nor does it seem to be getting cheaper. There are many here who want nothing more than pull you down with them into their tortured whirlpool of rare colors an contrasting edge trim .Tread very carefully here danger lurks

    Thanks!


    I'm fairly sure it's Barrie. What is interesting is that I am usually a 10D in Barrie but these are 9.5D and they are slightly snug but still super comfortable.

    Thank you.

    I don't own any light Aldens and am considering either a non-shell like the 966 or waiting to get on a ravello boot pre-order, which I know is highly unlikely.

    I've never been into lighter shell but have read a few posts on here from guys who didn't understand all the hype until they owned a pair. Figured now would be the time to try to get a pair given all the rumors about shortages. And by now I mean in the next year or two.

    With bright eyes and a substantial dose of realism...does anyone have any leads on a ravello pre-order? Would really love to get a captoe boot like the Unionmade Kirkwood or Day Tripper but I know this is nearly impossible.

    Yeah, it might have helped to read the entire thing. Thanks.

    Winterbourne, as a soon-to-be-not-student - I've done the whole job search, interview, and internship gig. I saw that you wanted to wear a pin stripe suit with the LWBs but I'd advise against wearing a pin stripe suit to an interview. Find more subtle ways to stand out - but it surely depends on the industry and type of job. Finance and accounting, you gotta keep it boring man - hate to break it to you. Being in marketing, I've been able to add some nice details but I avoid going overboard. Usually I'll do a bolder tie - something like a brighter, powerful purple or a rich dark red/burgundy. Usually I'll pair that with a discreet tie clip to keep the ensemble together. You can't go wrong with a navy or charcoal suit, solid of course. David
