    Those are excellent choices. I don't own a pair, but I think ravello PTBs are in my top 3 desired Aldens.

    They are indeed stock 986 LHS. PGH thing is just a little inside jock since Bakes lived in the Burgh for a bit and that's incidentally where I was able to try on the LHS for size and buy while on a business trip.

    And Jcrew sent me the wrong shoe. Got calfskin instead of shell with a leather sole instead of crepe. They have no more left in my size and now I have to go out of my way to return them. This is why I don't buy from Jcrew.

    Back to the drawing board to try to find a crepe soled cordovan shoe (need for long distance walking)

    thoughts on The Shoe Mart's Natural Chromexcel plain toe Indy boot? i'm afraid they might come off looking a little like Doc Marten's or something.

    I know there are a bunch of other guys here waiting on some pre-orders with Leather Soul from back in January of 2012...I just got an email reply from Will and he said my tan suede LWBs are still AT LEAST another 6 months away from production. That would bring the total wait time for these up to over 2 years.

    I can understand long waits for some rare shell colors (well, I can't really understand it all that well, but I'll tolerate it for now), but this is a pretty standard suede makeup, nothing fancy...I can't understand why it's taking so long. I'm officially done with pre-orders from Alden. Once I get all the ones I've been waiting on for the past 2-3 years, no more pre-orders for me. Wait times will probably be 5+ years pretty soon. Hell, the Ravello Brixton is only 2 more years away from a 5+ year wait!

    Can't go wrong either way.

    Completely different boots and probably not fair to compare one against the other, IMO. I own the two boots in question except my TSM version is black shell, and not color 8 (I have enough color 8 boots).

    I am not a huge 403 or 405 guy, but I found the Innsbruck to be just different enough that I really like it. The Innsbruck is also a great boot for wintry weather.

    There have been pictures a few pages of back of the natural cxl Indy boots. Scroll back a few pages and make your own judgment.

    I own this Indy boot and think it looks great. Whether it looks like D Marten's or not, I don't know. It never occurred to me, so I guess that means I think they do not. Again, they are your dogs. You decide what you put on them.
