    Thanks in advance.

    This is the wingtip bal Alden makes for BB. It is on the M-75 last (like Plaza). I own it in color 8 shell and black shell.

    My color 8 model is this exact model, and is quite old, and has no seam. My black model is quite a bit newer and has about a half inch seam.

    They're a great pair of shoes. Suede can scuff easily, but calf will crease. Embrace the charm of wearing a beat pair of casual suede shoes.

    Quick question, I own a pair of the cap toe bal shell cordovans from TSM. The shoe uses the Hampton last which fits me like a glove, however, I noticed that the right shoe pinches my pinky toe and after prolonged wear my foot is killing me. Either my right foot is abnormally shaped compared to my left or the right shoe has a design flaw. I love these shoes but was curious if any of you have experienced similar discomfort with any of Alden's lasts?

    ^^^ Looking good Uncle. I've taken your lead and moved from my short argyles to OTC. Picked up several pair from BB when they had there 30% off, and some from Mr. Porter at 50% recently.

    Good looking shoes. I notice what appears to be some aftermarket insoles (aqua color showing on the inside of each foot?) They look like the same color as Spenco, but do you mind saying what brand insoles you find to be the best fit for Alden? Do you find that they damage the lining of the shoe over time?

    The color of that ravello is great. I like the dark edging too.

    Are the socks (looks like Bordeaux2) new?
