    I guess it's argyles and Ravello LWB day. These are from Leffot via B&S...

    I am wearing my ravellos today also but without argyles. Mine appear to be lighter but I guess it's because these pics are in the wild (outdoors) on a sunny day...

    Also, I would have to agree with SevenFold... the Marlows I have are noticeably darker than my cigar LWB, but it may be a lighter batch of cigar that I have.

    Slight. BB one is a bit sleeker, different last.

    Welt style is different I believe (360 reverse welt direct from Alden and flat welt from BB). BB PTBs also have metal eyelets while direct Alden version has blind eyelets.

    They're built on different lasts. N58 for the BB, Barrie for the Alden. The BB has a slimmer profile compared to the Alden. Sleeker some would say. I felt that the BB had a snugger fit. Check out the available photos of each. Best way to go is to try them on if you can.

    Found out from Alden that these were made for Japanese Market for those that care. I was curious. A bit too White for my tastes.

    +1 Under no circumstances could I envision those on my feet. But there must be a market for them .... To each their own.
