    I am almost a perfect 9.5US (Thin feet), Barrie last shoe with storm welt I size down a full size to compensate the width and length.

    I like Ravello Aldens and argyles. Very nice pic of a beautiful shoe.

    Quick question, I sent a pair of Alden cordovan loafers in last wednesday using the recrafting service, when should I expect to hear back from Alden regarding the shoes?

    They'll send you a postcard when they process your shoes. Restoration takes about 10 weeks.

    Quote:I sent a pair of LHS in and rec'd a postcard dated 6/12 saying ten weeks because of their annual 2 week vacation in July. I'm hoping of the 21st.

    For some reasons the metal eyelets on these remind me of the "dress" shoes my dad had to wear when he was a manager at an automobile equipment manufacturer and would need shoes that would hold up well for walking the production floor of 100,000 sqft industrial building but still be serviceable if he needed to go into a meeting with the executives or out to lunch with the reps from Ford or GM...

    The shoes look comfortable enough but extra clunky for some reason. However, if the deal was good enough the could definitely be worthwhile for keeping as a foul weather dress shoe.
